Being Teresa Giudice- Cooking Skinny Italian Style!



I recently bought Teresa Giudices cook book "Skinny Italian". I have been wanting to get it and try some of the recipes. Then I had a really brilliant idea. Why not chronicle my experience cooking like Teresa, just like Amy Adams did in Julie & Julia?

Brilliant right? Guess who agreed? Teresa! She contacted me and said she would like to follow along. So here goes!

Being Teresa is not going to be easy. First of all I'm not Italian and not skinny. I digress. As I thumbed through the book I decided I would start with a swordfish recipe. Actually the recipe is for  "Sexy Swordfish With Capers and Lemon".  I chose this first because it's early in the book, look fairly easy, and I am sexy. Have I mentioned I'm not the greatest cook? I told you being Teresa was going to be hard!

Off to the market for swordfish, capers, lemon and garlic. Sounds good already. The good news was someone cut me off on the way to the store, I flipped them off. I think Juicy Joe would approve!

Back at home I follow directions, and start cooking. The wafting smell of lemon, capers, and olive oil make me think about how I could dress Coco in head to toe leopard. Maybe this book is 
working!





The meal was amazing. Sexy Swordfish will now be in regular rotation. I served it with red skinned potatoes and peas. Delicious!!! Want the recipe? Buy the book you crazy #$%^&*!!! LOL. Right Teresa!?

Are you sure you want to be eating swordfish? It's loaded with mercury.
