There are all kinds of lists out there of “famous” people’s recipes. We balked at the ones that included tips from the likes of Ina Garten, Nigella Lawson, and Jamie Oliver. We know they can cook! We wanted to know about non-cook celebs. What do they eat? What do they cook? And we included some royals, just for the ogle factor. Even if they aren’t doing their own cooking, we love reading about how the “other half” eats, like Rhianna, Taylor Swift, and Snoop Dogg. Which will you try first?
Barbra Streisand’s Blackout Cake
OK, this one amused us. First of all, we loved picturing Barbra in the kitchen, with her perfectly groomed nails (she always has a pristine manicure), whipping up a chocolate cake. The problem is that we kept reading about how she grew up in Brooklyn, and was a fan of the famous Ebinger’s Blackout Cake. And then the attached recipes were nothing like that cake, which we know well. Layers of moist chocolate cake, filled and frosted with chocolate pudding and covered with more chocolate crumbs. We happen to know of an amazing version. You HAVE to try it. And, as a bonus, this one stays moist for days.
Dolly Parton’s Chicken Salad
Can chicken salad be exciting? Sometimes, but it is usually kind of, dare we say it, boring. Well, in this case, with Dolly Parton’s Chicken Salad, the result is more than a sum of its parts. The ingredients look pretty simple: chicken, mayonnaise, pecans, Dijon mustard, the crunch of celery, tang of onion. Try it. Those who have say it is deceptively delicious.
Catherine, Princess of Wales (Duchess of Cambridge)
What does a princess eat? Apparently the formerly-known-as Kate Middleton likes a fresh watermelon salad with feta. Sounds good to us. The juicy, sweet fruit pairs so well with the tangy, salty cheese…
Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex
To keep things balanced (we don’t want to take sides) we had to check out what Meghan likes, too. (PS: Did you know that she is also known as Countess of Dumbarton and Baroness Kilkeel? We did not). Reports vary, but it appears that she is a huge pasta fan. And wine. She was quoted in a Delish article saying, “”French fries and vino are my vices,” and that she would pass over dessert for a “big, beautiful red”.
That said, she is fond of green juices, too. Sounds balanced to us. Our favorite part is that she says she always hopes that the people she is with order French fries, so she can have a couple. Us too, Meghan, us too. Let’s have lunch together.
Gigi Hadid’s Pasta
Models eat, apparently. Or at least they say they do. We love pasta, and simple pasta dishes are a boon. You can throw them together at last minute on a weeknight. We don’t know if Gigi does the cooking herself, but a Penne with Vodka Sauce is apparently a favorite of hers. With a simple green salad, we say, what time is dinner?
Olivia Wilde’s Salad Dressing
Have you heard about this salad dressing? According to a former nanny, it caused a huge fight between the Don’t Worry Darling director (Wilde) and her husband Jason Sudeikis. We were intrigued. We love a good homemade salad dressing. And then it turned out to be a very traditional Red Wine Vinaigrette with a little mustard. We happen to love this kind of dressing, but fight about it? There has to be more to that story.
Taylor Swift’s Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies
There are those who think Taylor can do no wrong, but that is usually reserved for music, and social commentary. Apparently, she bakes, too. Or someone bakes and she eats. We aren’t sure which, but these cookies feature the contents of a chai tea bag and back in 2015, the Internet went crazy for these cookies. There is only 1 tablespoon of eggnog in the recipe, and you could use non-alcoholic, so make it with your teens and tweens.
Snoop Dog’s Billionaire Bacon
Bacon. If you are a fan, it doesn’t take much to get you interested in a new way to eat it. How about coating it with brown sugar, red pepper flakes and lots of freshly ground black pepper? Baked in the oven in a big batch means it is a great way to cook for a crowd, too. The recipe appears in Snoop’s cookbook, Crook to Cook. We love the title. And the bacon.
Jennifer Garner’s Chicken Soup
Chicken soup soothes the soul – we absolutely believe that. But it can be a bit tasteless, unless done right. Jennifer likes to share her recipes on her Instagram account and her great tip is to roast the chicken first, along with lemon and shallots. Roasting is such a great way of bringing out flavor; then she shreds everything and adds to homemade, or store-bought broth.
Ted Lasso’s Biscuits
You know that “biscuit” means cookie, in this case, right? A rich buttery shortbread. Sometimes simple is best, and when it comes to shortbread, we agree with that approach. Flour, sugar (in this case confectioners’), unsalted butter and a hint of salt. That’s it. Buttery, crisp, cookie nirvana. If we eat enough, will we end up looking like Hannah Waddingham? One can dream.
Betty White (RIP)
Somehow, we can just picture Betty whipping up a batch of chicken wings. The recipe has been floating around for a while, but it is worth re-visiting. Soy sauce, brown sugar, dry mustard and garlic powder are the stars. Powerhouse flavors. Pro Tip: Use a really high quality brewed soy sauce, and we think it is best with a low-sodium version.
Patty LaBelle’s Mac ‘n Cheese
Sometimes a recipe gets around and becomes so famous, it can stand on its own without its celeb creator. This is one of those recipes. I mean, come on now: muenster, mild cheddar, sharp cheddar Monterey jack, Velveeta and half-and-half? Yes, it is as rich and luxurious as it sounds. Get the recipe and make it ASAP.
Jimmy Buffet’s Key Lime Pie
We hope you know that searching for recipes on the Internet can turn up duds. We found one recipe for what was ostensibly Jimmy’s beloved lime pie and the person suggested using a garlic press to squeeze the limes…please do not do this. Your pie will taste like garlic. It just will. We have a version for you, sans garlic, that we think Jimmy would approve of.
Chrissy Teigen Loves to Bake
Chrissy Teigen has two best-selling cookbooks; she knows her way around the kitchen. She makes a mean banana bread, that also features chocolate and coconut. Yes, please!
Rihanna Gets Creative
We weren’t going to repeat any recipes, but we are making an exception for mac and cheese. This creation of Rihanna’s is so different, we had to point it out. She likes to use Colby cheese – so far, pretty standard – but then adds ketchup, yellow mustard, and Eaton’s Jamaican Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce. We would try this, for sure.
