Drew Barrymore is eating for two these days, and by all accounts, she's been sticking to a healthy diet.

Still, the actress, 37, admits that she'll allow herself to cheat on occasion when she goes out to eat.

"I'm a carb queen," she tells Food & Wine in its September issue. "I'll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don't want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft as it can possibly get!"

"I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them," she adds. "I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn't resemble the original dish at all."

When she's at home, however, Barrymore's diet is a whole different story. The actress tells the magazine that her refrigerator is currently housing a container of homemade curried heirloom tomato-lentil soup and that her "soulmate" is tea. But that she desperately needs help learning to cook Mexican food.

"Somebody, please teach me how to make better chilaquiles!" she says. "The dish was simultaneously dry and soggy – I somehow accomplished both textures and nothing else. I tried adding Cholula hot sauce, Topatio hot sauce, but nothing was helping that sucker!"
