Holmes Plans Festive Food Marathon
KATIE HOLMES and TOM CRUISE are looking forward to a blow-out Christmas of great food, because the actress and her mum are such gifted cooks. The Cruise and the Holmes families will spend the holidays in Telluride, Colorado - and the Batman Begins star can't wait to unzip her trousers and start eating. Holmes, who turned 29 on 18 December (07), tells America's Parade magazine, "We have big dinners and laugh. We love cooking. My mum's stuffing is my favourite. I'm a huge fan of pie, especially pecan. "I will probably cook some garlic mashed potatoes and maybe a cheesecake. We always make a lot of sugar cookies with decorating and sprinkles... Tom has shown me the greatness of extra chocolate chips. "Tom's really good in the kitchen. He makes great pasta carbonara and lemon pasta." But Holmes insists no gift she gets this year will be better than her daughter Suri: "Last year was Suri's first Christmas. It was so spectacular to share the holidays with her. It really meant the world to me. To be able to create a tradition for your children is one of the best gifts you can have."
