Basil, tomatoes, pasamren... what's not to love? Confession time, although I grew up in an Italian household, we never ate polenta. Yes, it's true, I was deprived :(.About your little food shaped cookbooks, haha... I have a Garlic shaped one. I guess I should crack it open sometime and give it a glance.Don't know if you got my response or not, but the answer to your question is Yes, I'd be honored!! My first name is Patricia.:)Take care!
