This is as much a celebration of life as it is a memoir. My husband, Lou, and I each did our own thing but we always helped one another to accomplish what the other needed or wanted. We adored our children and took pleasure in them. I am relishing this pleasure once again while leaving a record for my family to build on and also revealing my personal journey from ignorance to being a student of Judaism. Ah! To have a chance to revisit those times has been wonderful. Not only did I want to leave a record for my children and grandchildren but also for my great grandchildren, but I also wanted to go on that grand adventure called life once again. True, it had its tragedies; doesnt every life? But its pleasures and high points and our wonderful marriage outweighed everything else.
You know how sometimes you read a book and it just instantly feels like it's your story as well? This is it!! -How does it feel to be tray-trapped on a long flight? -Why do we buy cheap trinkets and souvenirs at exorbitant unreasonable rates when holidaying? -Why do some people stay away from Facebook? -Should the modern complexly designed user unfriendly taps come with instruction manuals? Uma Ramani addresses these and many such interesting questions in this thought provoking and lively book. With a generous amount of subtle humour she paints the ordinary events of our everyday life with vibrant colours and make them utterly fascinating. So pick up the book, grab a cup of coffee, fit your butt in a comfy chair and warn your folks to ignore you if you are smirking at your coffee cup.

No one writes about Italian-American families with the humor, warmth, and heart of Peter Pezzelli. Now, with Francesca's Kitchen, he delivers another winning novel about how much we need the closeness of family--even if we don't know it. Where There's Food, There's Family For years, Francesca Campanile was the queen of her home. Standing in her Rhode Island kitchen, making sauce from sun-ripened tomatoes, dropping in basil from her garden, and adding fresh onion, Francesca dispensed advice as liberally as she did the garlic, arguing nonstop with her son and two daughters. It was wonderful. But now, her children and their children have moved away. And for the widowed Francesca, no longer having a family around to pester, annoy, guide, love, harangue and, of course, cook for, makes her feel useless. Who is she without them? What she needs is another family that needs her, and when she sees Loretta Simmons's ad in the Providence paper for a part-time nanny, she's sure she's found it. All the single mom wants is someone to fill in for a few hours a day. But it's obvious to Francesca that Loretta and her kids need more--a lot more. Loretta's struggling to make ends meet. Every man she brings home is a disaster. And her kids could definitely use some guidance--and a little lasagna, frankly. In these frazzled, disconnected people, Francesca senses a hunger and loneliness as deep as her own. It's time for Francesca to work her magic--if she can--and the best place to start is the kitchen. . . Funny and moving, with a heroine to adore, Francesca's Kitchen is a delicious story about sharing love, life, advice, and, above all, food. Peter Pezzelli was born and raised in Rhode Island. A graduate of Wesleyan University, he lives with his wife, two children and their dog in Rhode Island where, most days, he is busy at work on his next novel. Every Sunday, however, if he's not riding his bike, you'll find him and his family at the dinner table, enjoying a plate of rabes and sausage, or a nice fritatta, or some other favorite Italian dish cooked up by his wife.
