One Dish at a Time I picked this up because I just love Valerie Bertinelli in all her incarnations I didn't expect too much recipe wise but hope for some anecdotes or stories about her challenges with foodThe book doesn't disappoint It mainly focuses on American and Italian American dishes and she does explain why each recipe is special to her She does include some Jenny Craig recipes here though they're tweaked to be a little filling in most cases She doesn't really get into her weight issues which is fine but emphasizes a healthy relationship with food The best chapters for me were the salads deserts and appetizers They were creative and generally pretty easyShe includes complete nutritional information And even gives it by servings so if a recipe serves 4 6 she gives the nutritional information for 4 servings and for six servings I really appreciated that She didn't include cooking times which would have been handy though you can guess it from reading the recipe through There are uite a few dishes in here from Mrs Van Halen Ed's mom as well as a few other celebrity friends So if you're a fan of Bertinelli this is a really great cookbook It would be worth checking out if you're not a fan but it won't be as cohesive or interesting at least I don't think it would be There were some great recipes in this cookbook What I loved about it even was the personal touch Valerie put into it Valerie Bertinelli is a down to earth family oriented lovely personLooking forward to her next cookbook More than 100 recipes for the Italian dishes of the much beloved celeb's childhood presented with tips and hints for enjoying them without overindulgingAs a member of a large food loving Italian family Valerie Bertinelli has always euated food with good times and togetherness But at one point her love of food threatened not only her health but her livelihood as an actress when personal demons drove her to overeat and make poor food choices that caused her weight to balloon by 50 pounds Now happily svelte remarried and riding a new career high Valerie has made peace with food giving it a central—yet considered—place in her home and family celebrations One Dish at a Time offers an intimate look into the beloved actress's kitchen where she prepares a collection of treasured recipes from her Italian heritage Along the way she shares her insights into the portion control and mindful indulgence she has come to practice on her journey to enjoying the pleasures of the table againFilled with gorgeous photos including the actress in her kitchen nutrition information accompanying each recipe and Valerie's tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle One Dish at a Time is designed to please baby boomer fans and home cooks alike Great RecipesReally good looking recipes Thank you Valerie for putting out a cookbook with calorie wise food they look healthy and some indulgence never hurt anyone right love your stories in your books about your family keep writing and cooking all the best to you and your family Made the turkey meatball soup We liked it Will try the Sicilian Love Cake at some point ExcellentBoth a cookbook and memoir The recipes are real life and easily prepared and full of flavor but most of all I enjoyed hearing the love come through for the people in her life particularly Wolfie Tom and Dominic Definitely a cookbook to both read and cook from Loved it The photographs both the oldies and the new ones are gorgeous and the recipes are wonderful I found at least 20 new dishes to try I like that so many of these recipes are made with ingredients I already have in my home This is the cookbook that Valerie wrote right after she lost all of that weight and she looks really good Much of the food sounds very tasty and uite delicious However much of it also is stuff that I would not care to make So kind of a double edge sword I really enjoyed the pictures and some of the stories that went with some of the recipes I wish that there were pictures that went with the recipes Some of the recipes reuire many ingredients while others not so much Either way this book is really worth a look through I have enjoyed watching Valerie Bertinelli on her show One Day at a Time and now on the Food Network I had tried a few of her recipes so when I found her cookbook on sale I knew I had to have it This is than just a cookbook I love the little stories that are included with this book I read it cover to cover and found so many recipes that I want to try I liked it so much that I went back to the store a few days later and purchased two copies of this cookbook to give to friends for birthday gifts
