I love to read, and I love to cook. One of my favorite authors that combines the two very nicely is Adriana Trigiani. This Italian-American author has written more than a dozen books, including some incredible novels, a cookbook, and a life-lessons book. Her novels are about big Italian families, just like her real life, and she incorporates Italian and Southern recipes into each of them. It's hard to pick a favorite novel, so I'll tell you that the Big Stone Gap series (four books) helped me escape to fiction when I was going through the hardest experience of my life.

In addition to printing delicious recipes in her novels, Trigiani shares some of her family recipes on her author site, visit her Favorite Recipes page on her author site.
