Who Are the Real Italian American Girls?

Now a days it's getting harder and harder to tell the real Italian Americans from the so called, mainstream media "Italian Americans."

Its so hard to explain what that actually means, but to break it down, I guess everyone wants to be Italian American. Can you blame them?As I was working ...

I'm Italian and Yes, I Have Curly Hair.

My Italian Father and His Garden...

If you're Italian or grew up Italian American with strong Italian traditions than that would mean someone in your family has an Italian garden.

In my case, you were the kid who went to school bragging about your father's garden and how you ate fresh vegetables or how you made tomato sauce...
