Best Friends

Valerie and her husband, Tom, love hanging out together with a home-cooked Italian meal. Valerie makes one of their favorites, like Chicken Cutlets with Spicy Arugula, and Tom toasts to their date night with his Italian Spritz cocktail.

From Film to Food

Just as in Hot in Cleveland, there’s always a picture-worthy moment between Valerie and her co-star Betty White. The two catch up over Valerie’s version of one of Betty’s favorite dishes, Italian Tuna Salad.

Party-Ready in Minutes

Valerie beams with excitement when she gets to share her food, like her quick and easy baked salmon, with friends.

Girls’ Night

Hosting a girls’ night in can be just as much fun as a night out when Valerie’s hosting. She invited some of her best friends for some bites and books at their book club meeting.

Tight Teammates

Valerie and her son, Wolfie, are a close team. She hangs out with him during their afternoon full of football, laughs and food.

Cheers to Years of Friendship

No matter whether it’s planned or last-minute, Valerie always welcomes guests into her home with open arms and, of course, a home-cooked meal.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Valerie learned many of her recipes from her mother, who joined her in the kitchen for a fun holiday-themed episode filled with festive bites.

Savoring the Scent

There’s nothing quite like pulling fresh baked goods right from the oven. Valerie takes a minute to enjoy the sweet smell in her kitchen.

Co-Star Chats

Hot in Cleveland co-stars Betty White, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick cozy up in Valerie’s kitchen for a girls’ meal that includes dishes inspired by all of their favorites, like Quiche Valerie and Panna Cotta with Berry Sauce.

Tasty Touchdown

When football is in the mix with food, it’s hard to top the competitive fun. Valerie and Tom host their family for some football and a little friendly competition.

Finishing Touch

Valerie uses scissors instead of chopping the herbs as an easy shortcut to garnish her meal with extra bright flavor.

Lights, Camera, Action

As a seasoned sitcom actress, Valerie is certainly comfortable in front of the camera. But with Valerie’s Home Cooking, she gets to turn in the script for culinary cues.

Modernizing Mom’s Recipe

Whether it's cutting down on cook time or adding her own special touch, Valerie often puts a spin on her family recipes.
