What's in Her Bag?

This radiant chef, author, TV personality, and supermom of 4-year-old daughter Jade is a pro at whipping up scrumptious, clean-your-plate Italian fare on the Food Network and at home. And she has a secret to staying so svelte in spite of her trade: keeping active on the coast. "My husband and I love to paddlesurf and take walks on the beach near our home in L.A.," she says.
