Jessica Szohr Bakes with Grandma

Originally posted 12/23/2010 11:40AM

For Jessica Szohr, the holidays officially start a week before Christmas, when she visits her grandmother Karen Szohr in Milwaukee and helps bakes batches of cookies alongside her cousins.

"We all sit around the table and work while listening to Christmas music," says the Gossip Girl star, 25. "It's so much fun!" Even if there's a strict no-tasting policy during the annual bake fest. "If everybody got to eat, there would be no cookies!" adds Karen, 65.

Though Szohr admits she's still an amateur baker, she's learning: "I have to carry on this tradition or Christmas wouldn't be the same."

Jessica Szohr Eats 'Like a Man'

Originally posted 05/27/2009 11:50AM

The quickest way to Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr's heart is through her stomach, she says.

"When I have a craving for something, I just can't hold myself back," she says in the June issue of Men's Health.

One thing the 24-year-old is always glad to see on a menu: burgers.

"After 10 years of eating vegetarian, I tried my boyfriend's," she says. "I was overwhelmed. It was orgasmic."

And nothing – not even the taunts of her own kin – can make her end her quest for a sated belly.

"My family makes fun of me," she says. "They say I eat like a man. But I love food that much."
