Anne Burrell knows what you're thinking.
"It's a small New York City kitchen!" says the Food Network star, 44, of her beloved 75-sq.-ft. cooking area. "And I'm not a fan of supersleek. I like clutter. It feels homey and comfortable."
Despite appearances, "I have everything organized, and I know where everything is," says Burrell. "It's well-equipped. Anything I can cook in a restaurant, I can cook in this kitchen. The problem is, because I have so much stuff, there's not a lot of room for food."
Nor is there space for her fiancée, chef Koren Grieveson, 42, to pitch in.

On her show Chef Wanted, Anne Burrell helps test up-and-coming chefs for top spots at premiere restaurants. But this week she's getting a culinary dream job of her own.
On Monday, the Food Network star will be cooking for attendees at the White House's Easter Egg Roll.
"I am so super excited," Burrell tells PEOPLE. "The White House is such a beautiful place, and I can't wait to visit and see the President and the First Lady and, of course, to do something fun for the kids."
On Burrell's menu: orecchiette with broccoli rabe pesto and sausage (which comes from her cookbook Cook Like a Rock Star) because, as she says, "A pasta dish is a great way to get kids to eat veggies."
