Go Inside Tiffani Thiessen’s Kitchen for Her Favorite Dessert ­– Watch

Saved by the stove! We know her as America’s adored high school sweetheart, but now Tiffani Thiessen can add cookbook author to her roster that includes host, mom, wife and of course actress. Featuring 125 recipes, Pull Up a Chair: Recipes From My Family To Yours includes everything from cozy fall dinners to decadent desserts. Watch the Saved By the Bell alum make one of her family recipes from the book ­– her mom’s cream cheese pie ­– plus get a peek into her gorgeous kitchen in the video above!

“I remember the first time I was given the task of making this cream cheese pie and I was super nervous because, of course, my mom had been making this for years and it was perfect in my mind,” the Dinner at Tiffani’s host recalled. “I remember banging it out of the park. Everybody was pretty happy. I have to say, once everybody gets a taste of this pie, this is definitely the house to be in for the holidays.”

Thiessen made the recipe for Us in her L.A. area home and in her “favorite” room in the house – her kitchen, which she considers her creative den: “This is my art studio. I spend most of my time here creating meals for my family.”

The kitchen was a nesting project Thiessen and her husband, Brady Smith, worked on before welcoming daughter Harper, 8. “We gutted it and redesigned the entire room,” the star told Us. 

Her favorite feature in the kitchen is her “secret” compartments. Besides a cabinet that hides an extra dishwasher for easy cleanup, “I designed drawer fridges for extra beverages,” she noted. “The lower one has juices and milks the kids can easily grab. The top one’s for Mommy and Daddy — that’s where the wine and beer go!”  

For a glimpse at her kitchen, and to see the cook in action, watch the video above! Pull Up a Chair is available now.
