Actress Tiffani Thiessen likes to throw intimate dinner parties at her house for her celebrity friends. She let us film them. We call it Dinner at Tiffani's. Tune in for Tiffani's favorite home-cooked dishes ( Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta, for example), delicious drinks ( Blackberry Cocktail, for another) and entertaining stories from Tiffani's celebrity guests.

We caught up with Tiffani to ask her about her hosting style, her favorite restaurants and more.

Cooking Channel: How would you describe your hosting style?

Tiffani Thiessen: Relaxed, warm, inviting and fun with a big side of silly.

CC: What's your top secret to hosting a successful dinner party?
TT: Making your guests feel at home. Alcohol really does help, too!
CC: What's your signature dish?

TT: Wow, I’m not sure if I have one. My husband would say his favorite dish is my roasted chicken or anything Mexican. My daughter would say my mac and cheese or chicken and waffles.

CC: What's your favorite guilty pleasure food?
TT: Cheese, cheese and, oh yes ... cheese!!!!!!
CC: What's the best place to eat in Beverly Hills?

TT: If you’re adventurous I would say Picca. I am also still dying to try Maude. You'd think that by knowing the chef and his wife I could get reservations? LOL.

CC: Which food person do you most admire?

TT: Wow, I admire so many. It's hard to pick one so I will pick three … wait four. Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, Dan Kluger and my dear friend Maili Halme.
