Teresa Giudice Dishes Up Pasta With a Side of Irony

Kim Conte

skinny italianRemember when I made fun of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice for writing a cookbook and suggested that perhaps she wasn't the most qualified for the job?

Well, it looks like she's having the proverbial last laugh now that her cookbook is on the New York Times bestseller list and she's scored a second cookbook deal with Running Press for FABULICIOUS! The Italian Family Cookbook.

The new book will feature "easy, budget-friendly recipes that will please the whole family" -- which is highly ironic given that the whole concept of a "budget" seems foreign to Teresa considering she's $11 million in debt.

If only our favorite chefs and cookbook authors could tap into this irony, here's what we think they'd publish ...
