Hot Mama: Ali Larter

The actress, chef and and mother of two proves she’s a true triple threat.

Ali Larter You may recognize her from from your guilty pleasures list on the DVR (Legends, anyone?)—but actress Ali Larter is as much a star in the kitchen as she is in front of the camera. The lifelong entertainer has a genuine knack for hosting fresh, modern, fuss-free affairs, and she shares her favorite tips and recipes in her book, Kitchen Revelry and on her site, Between offering up mouthwatering dishes—jalapeno cheddar cornbread, strawberry mint cake and eucalyptus gin martinis, for instance—Ali gives sneak peeks at her family behind the scenes. (We all cooed dreamily over the sweet shot of new baby Vivienne). Ali’s motto, in the kitchen and in life, is that it’s not about being perfect—it’s about having a good time. And to that, we say cheers. Ali Larter Motherhood Tip
