2 kids, 3 rescue dogs, 7 chickens, 1 hit Netflix show–and a new cookbook about. Tiffani Thiessen has gone Long From her Kelly Kapowski days, beloved-by-all of the actress have created a second action that just might be more impressive than her first. When you meet her you’ll wonder how she juggles all so seamless and remain as down-to-earth as her character on the Alexa, and Katie(this is our family’s favorite show to watch together.) In our interview, I went to my taxi, a 30-minute drive from West Hollywood to a property, but a million miles away from the nonstop pace. I hit the buzzer on the door, and into the hotel, I got it.
Tiffani Thiessen the secret of shelter ground? Family life she created is all about to enjoy dinner in the sun and interworking with the nature of her oozing charismatic”farm in Los Angeles.”
Tiffany and her husband, Brady, buy 1920’s property(once owned by Hollywood legend Jack Warner)15 years ago and has lovingly restored it room. Fortunately, this couple is not an avoidance of a challenge, it is obvious the rubber work boots in the door and truck in the driveway and they put them as caregivers very seriously. In fact, Tiffany’s desire to get her hands dirty is apparent from the moment we arrived, she took a break from preparing the lobster, grab one end of a heavy table that needs to move to capture Just The correct light for our photographer. Then she put these boots on and headed to the chicken coop.

We love your”farm in the pull!” What attracted you to the property?
When we first saw the house it was very outdated(many mirrors and gold and faux painted wood), but we believe that a connected home, see the potential of what is. I think one of the things I like which makes it so special is that when you arrive, don’t you think you’re in Los Angeles anymore.
What is life on the farm like?
A perfect day is one spent with the kiddos. Run outside, swing, swim–really anything as long as I’m with them.
Families gathered fresh eggs in the chicken coop, and use them in most of the day in the menu–everything from baking bread to disrupt the baked goods find their way into the kitchen.
