Like a Romantic Comedy

The story seems straight out of a romantic comedy: A Hollywood starlet gets set up by a friend and falls in love with a handsome actor-painter who just happens to share her offbeat hobby: keeping chickens. This is real life for Tiffani Thiessen, famous Beverly Hills 90210 bad girl and now host of the new Cooking Channel show Dinner at Tiffani's

Meant to Be

She and her husband, Brady Smith, both grew up in cities (she in Long Beach, CA, and he in Houston), yet both raised chickens in their backyards. 

Continuing the Tradition

After they got married, it only made sense to continue the tradition at home in Los Angeles, where they live with their 4-year-old daughter, Harper. "Going out and getting the eggs in the morning never gets old," says Tiffani. 

B.E.G. Sandwiches

"My husband is one of those guys who just loves sandwiches — breakfast, lunch or dinner!"

Avocado-Herb Salad with Goat Cheese

A bright, fresh salad makes a great addition to the breakfast table — especially when both the main dish and the cocktail involve bacon.

Bloody Caesars

A Bloody Caesar is a slight variation on the traditional Bloody Mary. It's made with Clamato juice instead of the usual tomato juice.

"I'll take these over a traditional Bloody Mary any day!" says Tiffani.
