We’ve a few soap stars who seem to know their way around the kitchen and could whip up their most loyal soap fans a delish meal. On the other hand, there are a few soap stars who prefer to dine out. Trendy restaurants versus home cooking!

Soaps.com reporters recently caught up with a few soap stars and asked them if they prefer eating out to dining in. Here’s what they had to say:

Taylor Spreitler (Mia, Days of Our Lives) let Lori Wilson know a secret. “The only thing I know how to cook is Ramen noodles and I burn them sometimes so, definitely dining out!”

Kevin Schmidt (Noah Newman, The Young and the Restless) was happy to tell Christine Fix, “I get around a kitchen pretty well! My brothers and I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for friends this year at our place. Thirteen pound turkey, ten pounds of smoked beef, spicy green-beans and homemade mozzarella sticks. The video’s on my YouTube channel. I enjoy a meal out at my favorite spots as well!”

Mykel Shannon Jenkins (Charlie Baker, Bold and the Beautiful) told Lori Wilson, “I gotta cook at home. They put too much stuff on stuff. I’m a Texas boy. You don’t need sauce on meat, just cook it right. The grill got flavor if you know how to use it…I’m thrifty, I was raised that way. I don’t know if I’m ever going to break out of it. If I’m celebrating, I’m going to let somebody else do it, but if I’m just, “Hey let’s go out to eat,” no! Hey, I’ll just defrost…I cook steak that makes Ruth’s Chris want to cry. I know how to do it. I like to get my own meals. I like to take care of my body and don’t want to have to work too hard to get back what I worked hard to already have. I like to keep it real economical, really, really good and really, really uncomplicated. I’m a caveman with it.”

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan Forrester Bold and the Beautiful) confessed to Lori Wilson, “I definitely prefer eating at home because I know the kind of food I’m getting. We eat mostly organic.”

Amy Mistretta talked with Kassie DePaiva, (Blair McBain, One Life to Live) who said, “I enjoying cooking first, eating out then takeout – in that order.” When asked, “Do you have any favorite recipes,” by Amy, Kassie admitted she doesn’t really use any!

Windsor Harmon (Thorne Forrester, Bold and the Beautiful) told Lori Wilson, “I absolutely enjoy doing both. I love to get up in the mornings and cook breakfast for the kids before school. I love doing the big dinners for Thanksgiving and Christmas to where I can find myself cooking ten to twelve hours a day at times. But I love going to restaurants all over the world. Especially because of the show, I’ve had the opportunity to experience some of the most phenomenal restaurants on the planet. Ronn (Moss, Ridge, B&B) and I were fortunate to present at an awards show in Monte Carlo and I went to…I think it was rated in the top 5 in the world and this French restaurant was built on the side of a mountain about two miles up from the ocean. They just treated us like we were Prince Charles’ brothers. It was unbelievable. There’s nothing like it. I remember my first trip with the show and we went to Lake Como and Brad (Bell, executive producer, B&B) had taken us to this amazing restaurant and we sat outside and it was covered in vines and we just had this great wine and the food was just unbelievable. That’s something a lot of people don’t get to do. I do love that, but I do love cooking, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas, with Cajun food and stuff like that. Ronn Moss will tell you that too. I’m a better cook than his girlfriend (laughs).”
