Overview

More than 100 recipes for the Italian dishes of the much-beloved celeb's childhood, presented with tips and hints for enjoying them without overindulging.

As a member of a large, food-loving Italian family, Valerie Bertinelli has always equated 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 again.

Filled 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.

Im going to enjoy this book. I love the fact that it has the nutritional facts. Some of the recipes listed are recipes I've lost and I have been looking for. They bring back fond memories, that some good foods tend to do. I liked the personal touches Valerie included with each recipe. There are so many new delicious recipes that I've not made and can't wait to try them. Great job Valerie and thank you.

Every receipe I have tried has been wonderful. Her book has taught alot about eating right and stocking my kitchen with healthy good tasting foods instead of alot of junk food. I loved the stories she included and her receipes are very easy to cook. My only complaint is iI wish she had added 100 more receipes that's how good they are. I have also had problems with weight issues all my life and so I understand what she has dealt with over the years. But she looks like she's in her 3 early 30's and is just as beautiful as ever. Please write another cookbook I would love to try more of your receipes. Thank you for writing this and sharing with all of us and showing us with hard work and life changing ways of eating we can all do it.
