Best Selling SUNDAY SAUCE 5 Star Reviews



Daniel Bellino Zwicke

Customer Review 1 by Madeleine, Rated 5 Stars 

Regretting the lack of Italian-American heritage in my blood line! Bellino-Zwicke captures the full experience of Italian-American kitchen. Sunday Sauce isn’t just another recipe book. Bellino-Zwicke shares the stories and heritage that make us all wish were Italian-American.

From music to real wine advice, the book explores what it means to make an Italian-American meal. The book is so special because it is about the experience not just the recipe. It is so great to have someone take the time to capture a little bit of their everyday life.

The recipes are actually doable! I really hate when I buy a cookbook that calls for obscure items or the ingredient list is a mile long. The recipes are real recipes that you can add to your meal-time rotation. The Green Bean recipe is simple but a real keeper. I will be making more of everything I have tried, especially the Sausage and Pepper Frittata.

Review # 2 by Val, Rated 5 Stars :

From what I read and gathered, Italians are serious about their food! This book provides its readers with an abundance of information and food to make for the entire family. These recipes are top-notch and easy to make if you follow the directions precisely. I like this book because it's filled with recipes that even my picky kids enjoy. Moreover, the desserts are satisfying to my tummy and my soul.

Review # 3 by Kimbodar, Rated 5 Stars :

Sunday Sauce? When I saw this book I just had to get it. Sunday Sauce is my favorite and I wanted to know how to make that famous one were Clemenza shows Michael how to make it in the Godfather. I made it, and my family went nuts for it, as they did for the other recipes I made from this wonderful book. There are many Italian favorites in the book, and the recipes are well written, as is the text that goes along and gives you some history, info, and fun facts on these tasty dishes. 

I really enjoyed the book and I’m quite glad I got it, as I’m sure I’ll be using it for many years to come.  "I just love it." !

Review # 4 by Lynn Zimmerman, Rated 5 Stars :

I loved every part of this book, but I really appreciated the seafood recipes. Shrimp scampi and mussels marinara were my personal favorites though my boyfriend lost his mind over the meatballs.

Lots of fun to read and even better was making something authentic that everyone loved.

Excellent book that I’ll be using over the holidays!

Review # 5 by Susan,  Rated 5 Stars : 

Excellent !

Brings back memories of growing up in Brooklyn New York. The wonderful smells coming out of Windows as you walked by. Everybody saying they had the best gravy. I'm gonna make every recipe in this book with my son.

Review # 6 by Madeline Roberg

Get ready to sit back and let the feeling of an Italian-American Sunday wash over you! In Sunday Sauce, Bellino-Zwicke captures the full essence of Italian-American cooking, it isn't just about the food (although the food superb).

He draws us into the kitchen and tells one tale after another, in a manner that makes us feel like we are enjoying a great afternoon cooking with loved ones! He even provides music suggestions for when you are cooking, to capture the full experience.

I am always on the lookout for new recipes to add to the dinner time rotation. Our garden has been overflowing with green beans and I was tired of our regular recipe, so I started with the Green Bean recipe and wow is it a keeper. I am looking forward to years of Lucia Bellino’s Stuffed Peppers and the Sausage and Pepper Frittata.

Next on my list of recipes to try is his Mommy’s Stuffed Cabbage!

This book was so entertaining and full of good recipes that I read the entire book in one sitting! I just couldn't put it down. I can't wait to try the recipes!

Review # 8 by Jane Crowley, Rated 4 Stars :

Mangia, mangia. this book features authentic blue-collar Italian recipes. Hearty and delicious they are largely traditional. anyone Italian or who has known Italians recognizes their obsession with sauce. The recipes are good and classic and include plenty of sauce, meatballs (made with milk like nona used to create) and ricotta cheesecake. There are plenty of cultural allusions including references to Sinatra and the Godfather as well as the author's experience growing up Italian. Nice, memory invoking collection of doable recipes.

Review by Theresa Desaultes, Rated 4 Stars :

The recipes are amazing!

The recipes are amazing!

Cometh the however: he decorates with quotation marks that make no sense. the stories he tells are interesting and worth the read. he needs an amazon editor to take this book in hand, format it properly, tighten it up, lose the quotation marks. I find it very distracting, thus the rating.

I have loved Red Sauces since I was a kid.when I go to a new Italian restaurant, I order spaghetti and meatballs. if that is good, I'll go back.if not, well, life is too short to eat bad pasta. after reviewing the recipes, I would go back, again and again, to a restaurant that served them. Red sauce never fell out of favor with me!
