When she's not bringing the boys to the yard, Kelis can be found indulging her love of cooking. In her forthcoming cookbook My Life on a Plate: Delicious Everyday Recipes & Sauces, the Food singer lets us into her life and her kitchen. More than just milkshakes and jerk ribs, the book is "a reflection of [her] life through food." 

Due Sept. 7, My Life on a Plate is a "collection of [Kelis's] favorite recipes." This love of food is nothing new for Kelis, whose mother ran her own catering business in Harlem as the "Bossy" songstress was growing up. Inspired by her Puerto Rican heritage and her world travels, the recipes will range from Pernil to Arroz con Swedish Meatballs to Malay Curry Chicken.

Following her 10-year mark in the music industry, Kelis took her skills to Le Cordon Bleu, which "gave [her] the confidence to call herself a chef and to write her first cookbook." If her food bears any semblance to her last album of the same name, it's bound to serve us up with something mouth-wateringly good.
