I received a free electronic copy of this from NetGalley for my honest review. This is a beautifully warm and delightfully yummy cookbook. I love that Valerie Bertinelli made this a personal cookbook; inviting you into her home with pictures of it and the stories behind each recipe and why she choose them. Beautiful pictures, wonderful recipes and easy-to-follow steps.
Celebrity cookbook including many beautiful photos of author's home as well as finished recipes. Appears to be a mix of California-type cuisine as well as authors home favorites. I didn't get to read in great detail as I received a complimentary PDF copy from netgalley and was unable to access this from my phone or kindle which is how I do most of my reading.I did however like most of the recipes that I read in full and she has a great selection including breakfast and desserts.
I enjoyed the writing of Valerie. The recipes seemed to be easy without fancy ingredients. Most or not healthy, but there are a couple that I am going to try and glad I checked this cookbook out.
Valerie Bertinelli is well-known name in my household, so given the chance to check out her cookbook and review it, I couldn't resist! As the current star of her Food Network show, Valerie's Home Cooking, and co-host of the network's Kids Baking Championship, Valerie is comfortable in the kitchen and sharing her recipes with people across the globe, cooking up dishes that will please anyone's taste-buds. There is a story behind every recipe, whether it was created by Valerie or passed down her t [...]
I’ve been a fan of fellow Delaware girl, Valerie Bertinelli since One Day at a Time. And I adored her on Hot in Cleveland. I was flipping channels one day and came across her show, Valerie’s Home Cooking on The Food Network. I haven’t missed a show since. So I was beyond thrilled when I had the chance to check out her new cookbook VALERIE’S HOME COOKING: More than 100 Delicious Recipes to Share with Friends and Family. I’m so glad I did! I got to learn more about Valerie from her wonde [...]
Honestly, my interest in this book stems from seeing Valerie Bertinelli on various shows on the Food Network channel. Overall, I think this is a pretty good cookbook that's bound to have a recipe for everyone to enjoy. The recipes in this book are organized by meal/course, making it pretty easy to navigate. The chapters include Rise and Shine, Getting Through the Day, Happy Hour, Around the Table, A Side Note, and Finishing Sweet.Most of the recipes have photos with them, which is helpful. Some [...]
Delicious! Valerie creates a nice balance between cookbook and regular book. I would probably not make all of the recipes, but it makes it so interesting to read her commentary on the background of the recipe, where she got it and/or why she included it.
I don't just cook because I have to eat or because I am the only person in my house who cooks, I cook because I love it! For me, it is a stress reliever and since I grow my own vegetables, I get to use what my garden produces during the Long Island growing season. I have a shelf of cookbooks in my library as well as a pretty extensive collection on my Kindle and I am always looking for cookbooks that either teach a cooking style I am unfamiliar with or present recipes in an appealing way. This b [...]
Wow! This is honestly the best cookbook I have ever seen! When I first opened the envelope it came in, I didn't expect the book to be as pretty as it is. The pages are also so nice and they are thick, which is great for a cookbook. The pictures in it are beautiful as well. The layout of it is perfect. The recipes are also varied. I think the best thing about this book is the fact that none of the recipes are "dumb". In alot of cook books, they include little recipes for kids that don't taste goo [...]
I am a big fan of Valerie Bertinelli and I love this cookbook, it is filled with so many great recipes. Each recipe begins with a paragraph or two about the recipe and from reading these I felt like I got to know Valerie a little bit and they made me even more anxious to try some of the recipes. Lots of great pictures are included, and none of the recipes were too difficult that I wouldn't feel comfortable trying them. Some of my favorite recipes from the book include slow cooker beef sandwiches [...]

I was sent this cookbook by the publisher to look it over and check out the recipes. When I took it out of the envelope, I was surprised that it was a hardcover and a beautiful one at that. I love the notes by Valerie before each recipe. The photos are beautiful and the recipes are not complicated. I loved that she reinvented some of the classic childhood favorites. The tuna noodle casserole looks really enticing and flavorful. So much better than the traditional dish. She appears to be down to [...]
Excellent book! I can’t wait to try the recipes!
Valerie's Home Cooking by Valerie Bertinelli is an excellent collection of over 100 recipes. Recipes are detailed and easy to follow. Book has beautiful photographs and features charming comments from Ms. Bertinelli. Many recipes are classics but modernized by unique twists. I particularly loved Quick Rotisserie Chicken Gumbo, which was so easy and delicious, the Lobster BLTs, which was such a brilliant combination of two of my all-time favorites and the simple but so tasty Ham, Apple and Chedda [...]
Gorgeous photos. Focus on meat for main dishes. Will definitely be trying some of these recipes. You don't have to be a fan of her tv show to enjoy.
I received an Advanced Reader Copy from NetGalley for my unbiased opinion of the book. This book felt like a sit down meal with a friend while swapping recipes. Where do I begin??? I loved the personal insights to Valerie's life, suggestions, drinks chapter, how it was categorized, etc I made Egg-in-a-Bagel, Berry Kir Royale, Rosemary & Pepper Crackers all memorable!!! This is the first cookbook where I want to make every recipe in it! This cookbook is money well spent and Valerie Bertinelli [...]
Valerie's Home Cooking is a fantastic cookbook! The recipes are easy, nostalgic, and everything you want from home cooking, with great updates and a few surprises mixed in. Valerie has put everything from desserts and cocktails to crock pot time savers into this comprehensive collection. Anecdotes for each recipe were short and sweet, which kept you engaged as you read. This will be a great resource for go-to easy (yet impressive) recipes for me. Everything is simple in execution but complex in [...]
Valerie Home Cooking by Valerie Bertinelli is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early October.If this book being cross-promoted through the Hy-Vee grocery store magazine wasn't enough to turn my head towards it, Bertinelli's friendly, expressive, and easygoing attitude (i.e. I fully agree with the daily sidetrackedness involved with menu planning and being inspired by ingredients to brainstorm about cooking) and sumptuous, yet stylized breakfast, drinks, lunch, side dishes, dinner, and desse [...]
What a great foodie book. More than just recipes, Valerie shares thought and tips throughout the book. The format is easy to read, ingredients are listed on the side and the directions are clear. Pictures show what the final dish will look like. My favorite chapter is Finishing Sweet with the Smores popcorn and Peanut butter chocolate pretzels coming in a close 2nd. There are also a lot of Broccoli Salad recipes around but this one has a great flavor base with lots of crunch and sweet. Can't wai [...]
Excellent book! Has recipes for normal, every day home -cooking. Normally, when I look at cookbooks there are recipes that are complicated or for fancy diners at holiday time, not this one. This one I will use over and over!
Divided into chapters according to meal categories and gathering types, the description that precedes each recipe confirms Valerie's philosophy that much of the joy of cooking and eating comes from sharing the experience with people we love. Most of these recipes are for good ole homey comfort foods. Homemade Hamburger Helpa' and tomato soup with grilled cheese croutons come to mind. There are even chapters for cocktails and snacks. The chapters include beautiful photos of food, tablescapes, and [...]
The pictures are beautiful in this cookbook! Valerie Bertinelli is someone I grew up watching on TV. To be able to read her personal stories about her grandmother, her home and family is a real treat. The recipes are amazing. A lot of them are not every day recipes for me but certainly great special occasion recipes.
Who did not love Barbara ( Valerie's character from a famous TV show on the air in the '70s? ) Valerie's bubbly personality comes through this cookbook and actually tends to make you want to cook. Pictures are wonderful, recipes are so easy to follow and she does not use ingredients hard to find. Every chapter and a few pages in between she tells the story of why this recipe reminds her of something which just jumps right off the pages to the reader. Definitely a cookbook you could refer back to [...]
I’ve become more selective as time goes by about the cookbooks I choose to add to my already overflowing shelves; however, I couldn’t resist trying out this one by Valerie Bertinelli. A few years ago I purchased One Dish At a Time: Valerie’s cookbook that is filled her very best recipes. Since I loved that one so much, I was thrilled that she came out with a second one. As with the first one, Valerie shares her thoughts and stories about herself throughout the book. Valerie has definitely [...]
I love to cook and this is a cookbook that I am very happy to add to my collection. Valerie's love for cooking really shows throughout the pages. The recipes included reflect how she loves to prepare food that will please family and friends but are not overly complicated to make or have hard to find ingredients. Many of the recipes have photos and all of them have a story on why she wanted to include it in the book. Some recipes also have tips on how far in advance you can prepare the dish or he [...]
Valerie Bertinelli has a warm, accessible personal appeal which has only grown with time. She’s been a TV presence in our lives for many years, but somehow, she seems as fresh and sunny as ever. Her successful Food Network show, “Valerie’s Home Cooking”, has now generated a cookbook of the same name. She shares her home in Los Angeles with her husband, Tom, and their pets. Her description of that home goes like this: “The kitchen is light and airy…backyard includes a vegetable garden [...]
I'm a huge fan of Valerie's show and was so excited to get a chance to see her new cookbook. I swear there's nothing she makes that I don't want to eat. This book takes all her mad skills and let's us mere mortals cook (or at least try to cook) just like her. It's absolutely FABULOUS! She's covered all the meals, desserts and drinks too. The pictures are beautiful and will make you hungry. I've marked my favorites and am eager to get cooking. Great job, Valerie!
This is a great cookbook from Valerie Bertinelli. She has a TV show with the same name, and the recipes in this book were either created by Valerie or have been passed down from her family and friends. Beautiful full color photographs of each recipe are included. This book has a personal touch as Valerie opens up her home and her kitchen to you like a long lost friend. Most recipes contain a section with cooking tips and/or variations to help you get the most out of the recipe. The chapters are [...]
