Katherine Schwarzenegger doesn't lift a finger in the kitchen when husband Chris Pratt is around.
"He's the chef," shares the 32-year-old author and daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. “He cooks and I am very grateful. He cooks at our house and he is very, very good at it.”
"He's very passionate about it," she adds, "to make things work really well."
Schwarzenegger, who shares one-year-old daughter Lyla with Pratt and is currently pregnant with her second child, says while she enjoys baking, cooking has never been her thing. "I lovingly admit that my parents did many wonderful things for me growing up and taught me incredible things," she says, "but cooking isn't one of them. I'm not very good at it."
So what's the Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy star's specialty?
"He makes really great breakfasts," Schwarzenegger tells Yahoo Life, "especially as my daughter has gotten older and can eat a variety of foods, she loves his breakfasts too."
"I'd say he's great at making breakfast," she continues, "but I eat like a kid: I'm someone who likes to eat breakfast for dinner. He makes everything great - eggs and waffles - all of it."
Breakfast isn't Schwarzenegger's only childhood food preference. She admits that she "eats like a kid" most of the time. Your favorite pizza topping? "Cheese," she says. "I'm super simple like a kid. The kid's menu is my jam."
Schwarzenegger also loves to add color to her food. "I'm obsessed with rainbow sprinkles," she says, "so I'd probably bring cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles or ice cream and a big top of rainbow sprinkles to a party."
The author of Maverick and Me, a children's book about her experience rescuing her dog, spoke to Yahoo Life as part of her work with Bounty, which celebrates National Pet Month in May by surprising new pet owners by donating their adoption fees to Best Friends pay Animal Society and gift them Bounty products to help clean up pet messes.
"I loved hearing about this initiative because I'm someone who is already a big animal lover and has a rescue dog," she says. "I love whatever I can do to continue to be a voice for the voiceless and raise awareness of how amazing animal rescue and adoption is."
In her own home, which she shares with a dog and a toddler, Schwarzenegger says Bounty is the key. "I use buns and buns all day," she says. "It seems like paper towels are what I reach for all the time. There's always a mess.”
But while mom life can be hectic, Schwarzenegger says she loves building family traditions. One of her favorite food traditions has been perpetuated by her mother, Maria Shriver, throughout her life.
"My mom has a tradition of making a 'homemade' cake for all birthdays, but it's actually a Betty Crocker cake in a box," she says. "She definitely made it super important that she always bakes us a cake on our birthday since we were born. She has never missed a birthday.”
"Everyone loves their cake and likes it better than any [store-bought] cake we can buy," she adds. "It's also really fun to see her doing it and knowing that it's a tradition that she will pass on to my kids."
