Haylie Duff has had a busy year, with the release of her first cookbook, The Real Girl's Kitchen, and the debut of her Cooking Channel show of the same name. "I'm not a trained chef," she says. "I'm just a regular girl who loves to cook. And most of my life I wasn't even good at it." Now she's cooking here more than she ever imagined, both for her show and for dinner parties with her fiance, entrepreneur Matt Rosenberg. "Everyone smashes together in here," she says. "It's a small kitchen, but it has everything I need."

Family Recipes

This handwritten book of recipes was a gift from Haylie's father — it belonged to her great-great-grandmother. "It's so inspiring and made such an impact on the way I approached writing my own cookbook," she says.

Chicken Littles

Haylie's future in-laws bought her these playful ceramic chickens at a Florida antiques store. They're similar to ones that Haylie's mom and dad had when she was growing up.

Love Notes

Haylie jots down recipe ideas and grocery lists on this chalkboard — but more often than not, there's a heart with her fiance Matt Rosenberg's initials scribbled on it.

Precious Platters

These ceramic pieces are handmade in France by artist Valérie Casado; Haylie bought them at ABC Carpet & Home in New York City. "I was so scared they might break during the trip home to Los Angeles that I flew with them in my lap!"
