Food-loving sweethearts Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos are at it again, cooking up all sorts of fun adventures –– not to mention delicious Italian dishes –– on both sides of the Atlantic. 

With Gabriele homesick for the Tuscan countryside, Debi takes him on a quick road trip up north to New York's Hudson Valley so they can enjoy the great outdoors.

The couple makes the most of their time on the upstate farm, playing with the animals and collecting fresh ingredients to cook with later that day.

Back home in Brooklyn, Debi and Gabriele whip up a rustic meal of pork chops and pasta carbonara to enjoy with the girls in their sunny backyard.

On another day, the couple heads to Oyster Bay on Long Island, where Gabriele's love for classic cars and Debi's passion for classic style collide.

Gabriele tears his attention away from the vintage wheels to grill up a feast for his new car-loving friends.

Debi and Gabriele also have plenty of activities lined up for Evelina and Giuliana, including a family camping trip.

It's all hands on deck as Debi and Evelina put up the tents and Gabriele and Giuliana work on dinner.

The family also finds plenty to do in New York City, and loves activities on the cheap, like biking across the Brooklyn Bridge and picking up sweets at a nearby bakeshop.

In Spanish Harlem, N.Y., they visit Hot Bread Kitchen, a unique shop that offers baked goods from all different cultures.

Debi and Gabriele learn to make bread with some of the bakers, then head home to prepare an affordable family dinner.

On their way to a restaurant in Harlem, Debi and Gabriele stroll past a neighborhood icon: the historic Apollo Theater.

At home, Debi and Gabriele create two dishes that fuse their Italian heritage with Harlem's Southern influences: a black-eyed pea and arugula salad and torta di carote.

The family's time in Italy is equally jam-packed.

In Pisa, Debi and Gabriele surprise the girls with a truffle-hunting adventure.

The Mazar-Corcos clan tags along as a well-known hunter and his truffle-sniffing dog scour the forest for the rare mushrooms.

Armed with their truffle-hunting bounty, Debi and Gabriele head to the kitchen. The dynamic duo makes fresh ravioli with a truffle butter sauce.

They also check out a local butcher shop and learn more about its meat-curing process.

For dinner that night, the couple makes mouthwatering crostini topped with lardo and Tuscan kale.

Of course, no trip to Italy would be complete without a wine cellar tour.

Gabriele and Debi sit down with the owners to sample some wine.

Then they head back home to make a romantic dinner for two.

Along with plenty of alone time, Debi and Gabriele make sure to get in some quality hours with Grandma.

No matter where they are –– in the concrete jungle of New York City or sprawling fields of Tuscany –– family will always come first.

After an extremely busy summer juggling various projects, Debi and Gabriele seek out some rest and relaxation at their Tuscan farmhouse right outside of Florence.

Exhausted Debi just wants to lie down and relax, but Gabriele has other plans. He's invited some family and friends over for a big homemade dinner.

He immediately gets to work picking fresh peaches from their tree to serve as an appetizer with fresh goat cheese ricotta from a local farm.

He builds his own fire pit in the yard like his father and grandfather used to do.

Giulia preps the sauce for some Pasta alla Norma, red sauce with roasted eggplant, as Gabriele mans the grill.

The family wants to take a trip to Siene to see a play some friends are putting on, but "Uncle" Robert arrives in a car that couldn't possibly fit everyone.

They finally arrive and can enjoy some hat shopping at the local Panzano market.

Life doesn't get much better than spending a day with the family in beautiful Tuscany.

Debi and Gabriele head to Florence, by the Arno River, and find the spot where they kissed for the first time 11 years ago.

To celebrate the anniversary, they plan a romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant. Gabriele heads home to make sure their girls are taken care of and gets held up in traffic on his way back to Florence, missing their reservation. Debi is upset but she gets over it when Gabriele offers to cook a special meal for her at home.

Just as they are about to start the second, ever sexier, phase of their evening, their girls return home — ah, life! It's never quite what you want it to be. But for Debi and Gabriele, it's always delicious.

Debi, Gabriele and their girls have moved from Los Angeles to Brooklyn. There's tons of unpacking left to do but Debi is eager to show Gabriele her old neighborhood. Hopefully he'll love it as much as she does.

Getting out of the house turns out to be a great idea. They find a wonderful butcher shop featuring grassfed and organic meats...

...and get some ice cream from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.

Gabriele even discovers he can still get out in nature just like back home in Italy.

And now it's exhausted Gabriele who needs to lie down and relax.
