I like being independent. I don't think that marriage means you're not independent, but right now I'm very comfortable, and I'm probably the happiest I've ever been. I feel solid. I feel safe.
One of the things I do in my cookbooks is I will do a conversion from outdoor to indoor grilling so you can do it year-round.
I like to create what I call 'tablescapes.' It's so much more fun when you organize your table around a theme, don't you think?
I'm not sure that some of the food purists are in touch with what really goes on in American households.
My audience knows me, and I wear beautiful clothes as a badge of honor. They remember where I came from.
My brand is a demography-breaker. It speaks to all homemakers and women from all walks of life and all across society.
The women are at an advantage - we represent the buying power in this country.
You don't need Montreal steak seasoning on everything.
Why I have had such a huge career and why I have sold over four million books, is that people can do what I share with them to do.

I always buy the smaller turkeys. On the pre-baste put pats of butter on the meat under the skin, put the skin back on, put a bunch of seasoning on the top, call it a day, put it in the oven. With a 10 - 12 pound turkey you are done in a couple of hours.
Different types of chicken come at different price points. Filets are going to be more expensive. If it's bone-in and skin-on it's going to be less expensive.
I can certainly be part of the socialite group and walk those carpets every day, but I choose not to because I prefer to be grounded. You can't be at home and on the red carpet.
I don't think there are any footsteps to be walked in. No one else has taken things that you can buy at the grocery store and put them together. I hope that I have a career as long as Julia Child.
When I was at the Cordon Bleu things took hours and hours and hours to make. And they were beautiful dishes - and I know how to cook that way - but I was like, 'no one is cooking like this.'
When you're young, you think you can do anything, and that was really a gift. That's why I can never understand someone telling me 'no' today. 'No' just isn't an option.
