"With the recipes in this book, I pass on those same traditions and virtues I gained from growing up surrounded by the love, generosity, and bountiful spirit of an Italian family kitchen," author Grace Massa Langlois explains.

I love Italian food, especially their delicious desserts. I was given the opportunity to review this wonderful recipe book. I was amazed with the quality of the book and photographs. The presentation of the dishes are amazing and mouth-watering. Recipes and instructions were easy to follow. I couldn't wait to make more desserts from this book for my family.

Even if you're a novice baker, Grace's Sweet Life guides you through the process of creating amazing delights.  With illustrative photos and detailed step-by-step instructions for making complex treats in your own kitchen, this easy-to-use book will enable you to enjoy the labor of love that is Italian dessert.


Grace Massa Langlois was born in Belgium to Italian parents. She grew up in London, Ontario, where she now lives with her two children. In April 2012, she launched her website, GracesSweetLife.com, where she shares recipes, stories about her Italian heritage, and the joy of growing up in a large, close-knit family. Her daughter photographs desserts, while her son holds the enviable position of being the official taste-tester.
