When it comes to acting, producing, business and philanthropy, Drew Barrymore is a force to be reckoned with, but believe it or not, there is one life skill that she struggled with until recently - cooking.
That's right, the Santa Clara Diet star only recently learned to cook. She made the decision after finding out she was pregnant with her first child.
"I had to face the sad fact that I didn’t even know how to boil an egg. No, really!" Barrymore explained. "You just can’t make excuses to your kids that you can't cook."
The actress confessed that although she tried her best to develop culinary skills, it just never worked in her favor.
"I've always been one of those people who romanticized cooking, but the few attempts I'd made in my life resulted in friends' contorted faces as they desperately tried to say something nice about the "dish" they were eating."
So when she had the opportunity to enroll in cooking lessons, she didn't think twice about it. As with anyone learning to cook, Drew had to "start with the basics" like cooking pasta and boiling eggs.
She has now mastered the art of cooking eggs and even though she described herself as a "shy cook," she isn't afraid to share some of her foolproof hacks and her favorite "super easy" breakfast sandwich she concocted all on her own.
