Ali Larter Kitchen Revelry Cookbook
Amy Neunsinger

Becoming a mom changes a lot in a woman’s life — your schedule, sleep pattern and more. But it can also awaken your desire to pursue other passions, which was definitely the case for Ali Larter when she welcomed 2-year-old Theodore in 2010.

“After my son was born, I realized how much time I spend on set acting and how much I love that, but when I’m not on set, I’m usually throwing dinner parties or cooking and entertaining in some way,” the actress tells PEOPLE.

“So I thought you know what, maybe I’ll try to put a book together, that sounds like kind of a fun thing to do in my off-time.”

The result of all Larter’s hard work is Kitchen Revelry: A Year of Festive Menus From My Home to Yours, which will hit stores in September.

Due with a girl in early April, Beverley Mitchell celebrated her baby’s pending arrival with a festive affair hosted by Target.

And the former 7th Heaven star (and her bump!) glowed in bright red dress, while partying with celeb pals including Lacey Chabert and Amy Davidson.

Her favorite part of the event? Being able to give back to charity Teen with a Dream, which helps combat the effects of social isolation experienced by kids undergoing chemotherapy.
