    My favorite cookbook of 2012 is: Regali golosi by Sigrid Verbert! It has been translated in French and Polish. It’s amazing the good gifts ideas it contains. There are also tips on how to package cookies and jars in an original way!
    And the recipes I’ve tried are delicious, the procedure is super simple!
