ONE DISH AT A TIME by Valerie Bertinelli (Rodale Books)
Television actress-turned-Jenny Craig spokeswoman Valerie Bertinelli offers recipes and stories based on her Italian-American upbringing. Dishes such as ribollita, a tomatoey vegetable soup, garlicky linguine and clam sauce and chipotle-spiked bison burgers (from the American side) sound warm and filling enough for a cold winter day. Each recipe offers calorie counts (some of which you'd rather not know -- that bison burger will cost you around 600 calories). And for those of you who didn't catch it, the title riffs on Bertinelli's claim-to-fame, the 1975 television show, "One Day at a Time." Yes, that's correct, 1975.(Credit: AP )
