She might be an independent, hard-working woman, but Beyonce still enjoys her time in the kitchen. The singer plans to release her own cookbook, which will contain soul food recipes from her mother, Tina. A source told the Daily Mirror: Tina started the tradition whereby anywhere in the world they are, she always puts on a soul food spread of collard greens, cornbread, mac n cheese and fried chicken. Beyonce would love to include these family recipes in a book. I think I just gained ten pounds by typing that. Beyonce is apparently being encouraged to go ahead with her cookbook plans by pal Gwyneth Paltrow. Beyonce has admitted shes not the best cook. HS
