Beyonce to Publish Cookbook

Beyonce to Publish Cookbook

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.  Paltrow released her own book of recipes, titled, My Father’s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness.

The source added, “As she (Beyonce) thinks about a family, she’s spoken about this with Gwyn and is raring to go.”

So Beyonce is trying to have a baby now? I hope Jay-Z knows about it. Because he's about to go from 99 problems to 100.

Beyonce has admitted she’s not the best cook, but there is one ingredient she can handle:

“I took a year off and I even did some cooking, although I didn't really enjoy that. I'm not the greatest cook - I can do things with oxtail, though."

Um. Sounds really…yummy.
