For her one last bite, chef and food blogger Gaby Dalkin would pick her special brownies, a layered concoction of chocolate chip cookie dough, sandwich cookies and gooey chocolate. It's so good that Jessica Simpson asked for the recipe.
Chef Aida Mollenkamp would dig into her mom's homemade lasagna, layered with sweet sausage, tomato sauce and, of course, the cheeses: ricotta, mozzarella and high-quality Parmesan.

Breakfast for Dinner
Survivor finalist Aras Baskauskas would have breakfast for dinner as his one last bite: crispy bacon, sunny-side up eggs, buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and freshly squeezed orange juice.
For his one last bite, chef Bradley Miller would slurp his way through a well-crafted bowl of traditional Japanese ramen noodles in a deep, rich pork broth.
Vegan chef Leslie Durso would eat a giant pile of vegan nachos, loaded with beans, pico de gallo, walnut "chorizo," guacamole and cashew nacho cheese, for her one last bite.
Four-Cheese Mac and Cheese
Fashion blogger Elaine Daneshrad's one last bite? Four-cheese truffle-oil mac and cheese, layered with cheddar, Parmesan, Gouda and Gruyère. She says it reminds her of rainy days with her mother.
For her one last bite, fashion stylist Marina Monroe would ladle out a bowl of her mother's borscht soup, a hearty tangle of beets, cabbage and beef topped with sour cream and dill.
Lamb Kidneys and Mashed Potatoes
Restaurateur William Annesley's one last bite would be lamb kidneys and mashed potatoes, a taste of home jazzed up with a red currant-balsamic reduction and a mushroom-leek cream sauce.
Singer Blake Lewis's one last bite? The Parrilla from Mojito, a restaurant in Seattle. For Blake, the spritzy guasacaca sauce makes the dish: a plate of marinated steak, rice, beans, fried banana fritters and yuca.
Soft-Boiled Eggs and Potato Soldiers
Food blogger Jessica Dang's one last bite would be soft-boiled eggs and potato soldiers, a simple pick with high impact. For Jessica, there's nothing like a perfectly cooked egg to take her back to childhood.

For actor Christopher Redman, nothing beats his mother's spaghetti Bolognese, a hearty tangle of comfort and respite from the cold Canadian winters in which he was raised.
