Haylie Duff is the host and star of Cooking Channel’s “Real Girl’s Kitchen,” a television show inspired by Haylie’s own cookbook and wildly popular namesake blog, Real Girl’s Kitchen. 

Haylie began her career as an actress and singer-songwriter gaining worldwide attention for her role in "Napoleon Dynamite" and has since appeared in numerous film, television and theatre productions including the hit series, "7th Heaven" and Broadway’s “Hairspray."  Now Haylie is serving up a fresh approach to food with an appreciation for homemade classics and a love of entertaining friends and family with "Real Girl’s Kitchen" television series.

Haylie's real interest in cooking sparked after her dad gifted her his grandmother’s cookbook full of family recipes. Tucked inside, Haylie discovered a handwritten note from a café owner dating back to 1934.  The note included one of his top secret recipes, inspiring Haylie to share her recipes in the same gracious sentiment.  The Real Girl’s Kitchen blog and cookbook have since become a destination for fans and foodies alike.  

The "Real Girl's Kitchen" show takes you in to Haylie’s kitchen and world where she blends her southern roots with her busy life in Hollywood — family, friends, kitchen adventures (and debacles), blogging and fabulous food.
