Devon resident Tina Verrelli, an on-air ambassador for KitchenAid appliances at QVC, sold out her first cookbook, Homemade Made Easy, on release day, writes Caroline O’Halloran for SAVVY Main Line.
In addition to gaining fans over the past four years through her gig at QVC, Verrelli also maintains a recipe blog. Her followers on both platforms encouraged her to put her recipes in a book, which she did to great success.
“I tried to keep the recipes simple and doable,” said Verrelli, a former elementary school teacher who once finished as runner-up on America’s Best Cook, a reality television show on the Food Network. “It’s how I cook. I’m busy and I need quick and easy recipes. Some are decadent, but I try to incorporate healthy cooking at home, so I have that in there as well.”
Her home has also gained attention during the pandemic, as she now broadcasts from her kitchen via Skype.
“It’s been a learning curve,” said Verrelli. “You learn to adapt to anything.”
