Lidia Bastianich is all about simple, seasonal and economical recipes that anyone can learn. Bastianich's book, Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking: 150 Delicious and Simple Recipes Anyone Can Master teaches us that a good dose of common sense is a necessary ingredient for any dish. Her cookbook encourages us to use it as a guide, and to adapt the recipes to your family's tastes. As Lidia says, "feeding ourselves, our friends, and our families is one of the most important things we do in our lives".
