It’s available at Barnes & Noble, select Costco stores, other fine booksellers and on Click here to order the book on Amazon now.


Here I am with the wonderful Home and Family co-hosts Cristina Ferrare and Mark Steines.


During my cooking segment, they showed a clip from my seven year-old daughter’s Youtube channel: Becca’s Yummytown!! She was so excited when she saw and her friend Abby on TV!


I was thrilled that Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a guest on the show as well. I catered a fundraising event at her clothing store, Kyle by Alene Too, so it was fun to reconnect with her. She even gave me a shout out about my Chinese Chicken Salad on Instagram!
