"More than 100 recipes for the Italian dishes from 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"--

I enjoyed this cook book very much. The photography is beautiful and features many photos of Valerie herself. She talks a lot about the history of cooking in her family, the inspiration behind her recipes, and still seems to be very fond of both her ex-husband Eddie Van Halen and his mother. She mentions them often. All in all, I didn't make anything from this book but I still appreciated it.
