Dr Oz: Valerie Bertinelli Ribollita Soup & Anise Twists Cookies Recipe


Dr Oz: Valerie Bertinelli Recipes from One Dish At A Time Cookbook

Like many of us are probably wondering, Dr. Oz asked how Valerie Bertinelli fits cooking into such a busy life, especially with recipes like Eddie’s Favorite Chicken Sambal (how delicious does that sound!?!?). She shared that it’s actually a fun thing to do and she and her husband, Tom, make it a date night and dance and sing in the kitchen, making it a truly special time. She then shared some yummy recipes from her new cookbook, One Dish at a Time. She seems to pull inspiration from all over the place – she was even inspired by Dr Oz’s Quinoa Recipe!  The first recipe she shared on Dr Oz’s show was inspired from her visit to Italy, which didn’t happen until she was in her 50’s. It’s a peasant, rustic soup called Valerie Bertinelli’s Ribollita Soup, followed by Valerie Bertinelli’s Anise Twists. Dr. Oz assisted with the recipe preparation when Valerie asked him to cut the onion because she hates to cry when doing the chopping. Dr. Oz offered a great tip and pulled out swim goggles to wear while he chopped the onion. I may have to remember that the next time I’m in the kitchen.
