Eat Like Kristen Stewart

Hi peeps!

Let's chat about KStew today. Her birth name is Kristen Jaymes Stewart, she was born in 1990 in USA and is an Aries. During her filming of Twilight New Moon; their film location was Italy. This is where kstew chomped down on fetuccine with cream and gnocchi with seafood. It was this that inspired her to take a huge interest in cooking and from then on; her tv is basically always on the cooking channel when she is at home. She is so popular at the moment that I'm sure I'd be a fool of epic proportions to even believe that you guys don't know who she is or which movies she acts in; so for my dignity and your sanity; imma leave that part out. LOL!!

Her favourite actress is Jodi Foster and this Aries's fave colour is yellow. KStew says that she is rather an "old soul" when it comes to her tastes in music and her favourite tune is by Van Morrison: She adores sushi, pastas and red apples.

Our Menu for KStew today is.....drumroll please.....
