Avalanche, who is also a cook, made a few of the items in the book.
The book is available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and other retailers.
The recipes range from basic dishes like lasagna and rice, to sophisticated dishes like lobster bisque and chicken with cheese.
Valerie Bertucci is known for her signature “Bertucco” lasagna, but her recipes are also popular with others who make their own.
In this case, a recipe for lobster bisques, which use a lobster tail, is featured.
“It is a perfect blend of lobster and seafood,” the book reads.
“You can use any kind of lobster.
It’s a very versatile food that’s not just about lobster, but it’s about everything from the seafood to the sauces and the toppings,” Bertinelli told ABC News.
Avalanche said the book was written to teach people how to make their food at home.
The author wrote that, as a mother, she was looking for a way to help her daughter prepare dinner at home, without relying on restaurants.
She said she thought about what she would need to cook when she had children and decided that she would try to make her own food.
“I wanted to make the recipes for myself, because I really didn’t have a kitchen,” she said.
“So, I really felt that it was really important to me that my kids knew what they were doing.”ABC News’ Brian L. Johnson and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
