Valerie Bertinelli, who is best known for her television roles in One Day at a Time and Hot in Cleveland , now has her own cooking show on the Food Network. The two-time Golden Globe winner prepares special dishes for family and friends on Valerie's Home Cooking, which has been on the air since August of 2015.

Popular guest stars also stop in to cook with Valerie and sample her favorite recipes. Betty White and Jane Leeves have been on the program, with former co-star Mackenzie Phillips making a recent appearance. On that episode they prepared a post New Year's lunch plate consisting of grilled chicken salad with apples and grapes.
