Find out what Daytime’s cooking up.

In the 5th illustrated Loukoumi storybook, celebrity chef and mom Cat Cora not only teaches kids how to cook, with the main secret ingredient being to “never give up,” she features favorite childhood recipes from over 50 celebrities!

Author Nick Katsoris filled in the book which includes favorite childhood recipes from soap opera actors such as “All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (Erica), “The Bold And The Beautiful’s” Constantine Maroulis (ex-Constantine) and Betty White (ex-Ann), “Days of our Lives'” John Aniston (Victor), “Guiding Light’s” Frank Dicopoulos (ex-Frank), and “The Young And The Restless'” Christian Le Blanc (Michael).

That’s not all… accompanying each recipe is a quote from the actor explaining why they are special to them.

Proceeds from the book, which will be released in December, will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Chefs for Humanity. Please visit Loukoumi for more details and to have your kids enter a recipe contest, where the winner will get the chance to cook with Cat Cora!
