Personal Quotes (3)

"It was almost like falling in love... It became my boyfriend, my best friend, my family." - on her cocaine addiction (Us Weekly, April 2003)
Every man who's ever fallen in love with me fell hard the minute I cooked a meal for him. It's the way to a man's heart.
My mother was Catholic, and my father's Jewish, so we always celebrated everything. To me, it was about the food and the celebration of it. [This year] I made Passover dinner on Friday night and Easter dinner on Sunday night. For Passover, I made matzo ball soup from scratch. And, well, I'm a bad, bad Jew, I made challah bread. I know you're not supposed to [since religious law prohibits eating leavened bread during the Passover holiday]. It's more the tradition for me than the religion. For Easter, I made ham--baked, with apricots.
