which one do you suggest? DH gave me a gift certificate for our anniversary and I'd like to treat myself to a cookbook, so which is better/more useful, italian kitchen or essentials of italian cooking?

Essentials is a much more comprehensive book and far more useful than Marcella's Italian Kitchen, IMHO. Both would be nice but if you can get only one, then it should be the first.

You're welcome and enjoy your new book. It's really one you should have and it will be enjoyable, too.

Another vote for Essentials.  I use this book a lot and it is lovingly splattered with bits of food.

I love her Essentials of Classic Italian. I don't have the other one, but I would not hesitate to recommend this one.
