Did You Know Sophia Loren Wrote Two Cookbooks?
Well I didn't :)
(1998)"Sophia Loren's Recipes and Memories".
(1972)"In the Kitchen with Love".
I would loooove to get my hands on her books <3
If you have one, tell me if it worth putting the books on my Christmas wish list :D
Sophia is a real woman in every sens of the word. See some of her quotes:
"I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now."
"Sex appeal is 50% what you've got and 50% what people think you've got."
"The two big advantages I had at birth were to have been born wise and to have been born in poverty."
"Cooking is an act of love, a gift, a way of sharing with others the little secrets -- "piccoli segreti" -- that are simmering on the burners."
"A woman's dress should be like a barbed wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view."
"Many people think they want things, but they don't really have the strength, the discipline. They are weak. I believe that you get what you want if you want it badly enough."
Gotta love her :)
