Eat This-- It'll Make You Feel Better!: Mamma's Italian Home Cooking and Other Favorites of Family and Friends

Dom DeLuise, Author Simon & Schuster $17.45 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-62210-7
Those finding a kindred spirit in the ebullient actor and comedian will hear his cheerful voice bubble off the page, giggling as he calls himself ""the fastest yolk in the West.'' Others will forgo the humor for the appealing, homestyle recipes. The focus is on Brooklyn-Italian-American food, although a Chinese chicken salad and chef Paul Prudhomme's blackened redfish are offered along with stuffed calamari, mamma's marinara sauce and sausages with peppers and onions. Family and friends, including a number of celebrities, contribute their favorites. Fans can sample Burt Reynolds's beef stew, Loni Anderson's chicken with wild rice, Anne Bancroft's vegetarian chili or Mel Brooks's red clam chowder. Desserts run the gamut from the eponymous Dom's no-sugar baked apples to ``death by chocolate'' #1 and #2. Photos not seen by PW. First serial to Woman's Day; paperback rights to Pocket Books; Literary Guild selection. (January)
