“Cooking With Love” Review

Cast: Ali Liebert, Brett Dalton, Janet Kidder and Kimberly Sustad

Release Date: February 11, 2018

Movie Description: Optimistic and cheerful TV producer, Kelly, doesn’t have time for love. Bad boy celebrity chef, Stephen, doesn’t have time for anything besides cooking. Fun with a side of love ensues as Kelly and Stephen are paired on a children’s cooking show.



  • The kids in this movie were adorable and didn’t annoy me. Not that kids annoy me. I love kids, but sometimes in movies kid actors come across as obnoxious.
  • Chef Stephen is absolutely gorgeous, and that smile, wow!!!
  • I really enjoyed the scene where Kelly cooked the spaghetti meal for herself, and took a picture of it to Stephen. His reaction of her cooking a meal on her own was sweet and flirty. I loved it.
  • Stephen’s relationship with the kids on the cooking show was precious. I adored how he signed the cookbook for Becca.


  • Jeremy was a huge slime ball and his character really got under my skin.
  • This may be a very unpopular opinion. I thought Chef Betty was annoying. I like the actress in other movies she has been in, but I didn’t care for her character in this movie.


My overall thoughts: I personally enjoyed the storyline of the movie. I thought the acting was good. I was super happy to see Kimberly Sustad. I adored her like I always do in Hallmark movies. I loved that fact that it wasn’t instant love between Kelly and Stephen. I enjoyed that their relationship was a slow build, from annoyance and worked it’s way to love. Their chemistry didn’t seem forced and I liked seeing the two together on screen.

Would I recommend this to others: Yes, absolutely! I thought this was a great Hallmark movie, and in my opinion is a Hallmark movie I would watch anytime it is on.

My Rating: 4/5 (Very Good)
