When we chatted with mom of two Tiffani Thiessen for the cover of our recent spring issue, she filled us in that the one room in her home where she spends the most time is as you may have guessed, the kitchen.
“My kitchen is where I get to create as well as connect with my family during meal time,” the Dinner at Tiffani’s host shares with Mini. “These are always on constant rotation— roasted chicken, pizzas, grilled cheese, lots of different soups and salads.”
She’s even getting daughter Harper involved in her passion. “She loves being in the kitchen with me. I am now teaching her a little bit of how to use a knife which scares my husband to death of course, but he’s handling it,” she tells Mini. “Cooking is definitely something Harper is into and I love that we get to spend time together doing it.”
But what we couldn’t wait to get a peek at—in addition to her kids’ adorable playroom—was her cookbook collection. Below are just a few of the titles spotted on her shelf.
