Drumroll, please: We’ve got Tamera Mowry-Housley in the house. You probs know and love her from her time on “Sister, Sister.” And these days, she’s co-hosting Hulu’s new baking competition show, “Baker’s Dozen.” Tune in for some mouthwatering dessert moments, and check out her fave foodie finds below…  

The self-care product I swear by...My Supergoop sunscreen or vitamin C pro-heal serum. 

My number one kitchen product...Our Pure Juicer. We like to juice every now and then to provide our bodies with the right nutrients. 
[Pssst: Skimm HQ loves this budget-friendly option.]

My go-to crowd-pleasing dessert to make...My classic chocolate chip cookies. It’s easy and you can’t go wrong. 

The best cooking-related gift I’ve received...The KitchenAid mixer. It can do everything. Even make pasta. [ can find more of ‘em here.]

Smartest purchase I’ve made recently...My Dyson diffuser. My natural curly hair dries in half the time. 

The movie I’ve revisited a million times, and it never gets old…“Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.” I laugh out loud every time. And I can watch it all season long. 

Fave on-screen moment from “Twitches”...When my sister and I improvised and did the Cabbage Patch [dance], “Go Twitches, go Twitches.”

Pssst: This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
