Don’t count Mariah Carey among the legion of celebrities who leave the hassle of cooking holiday meals to a private chef: The “All I Want for Christmas is You” singer recently divulged that she prefers to cook her own Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
“I start planning my Christmas in June,” she told The Sun. “It’s absolutely my favorite holiday and I’ve always loved everything about this time of year. I love cooking and I’m a smash-hit wonder in the kitchen.”
What was on the Carey-Cannon holiday table last night? “I’m going to be making the turkey, cranberry sauce and all the trimmings this Christmas,” said Carey. “I cooked at Thanksgiving and it was a real success, with everyone asking for seconds.”
