'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Update: Teresa Giudice’s Surprising New Cookbook


Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit, the third cookbook by Teresa Guidice of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey

For her third cookbook, Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit, reality-TV star Teresa Giudice of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey (the guilty pleasure of more than 3 million viewers) doesn't include a single catty comment about her fellow housewives. That's surprising, considering how this season of RHONJ chronicles the explosive aftermath of last year's tome, Fabulicious!: Teresa’s Italian Family Cookbook, in which she managed to offend almost every one of her co-stars with comments like how her “friend” Caroline Manzo is as Italian as the Olive Garden.
While Giudice may be saving her insults for the show this time around, Fast & Fit doesn't lack Giudice's signature wackiness and features some fascinating commentary among the recipes. Here, a sampling of tips and other highlights.
“If anyone tries to throw the word gourmet around to prove their culinary superiority, you can deliver the smack-down and remind them it means greedy little servant boy [in French].”
“Cup your palm: That’s one serving size. Unless you have freaky baby hands, your body is naturally designed to tell you how much you need to eat.”
“I’ve never met an actual 'woodsman,' but I’m guessing they eat lots of mushrooms since they live in the woods and all.”
“A hot red dress makes you feel sexy and confident. A hot red pepper should, too.”
“Zucchini is a great source of manganese, [which] helps produce sex hormones (I find that funny considering the shape of zucchini).”
“Puttanesca literally means ‘prostitution whore sauce.’ There are as many variations as there are loose women in the world (sadly).”
“As far as helping your brain, sage is no joke.”
