Our Holiday Cooking Tradition, From Kelly Ripa (VIDEO)

Kelly Ripa joked that her tradition is to NOT cook during the holidays when she met with me on Mondays With Marlo. She told me that her family always goes to church on Christmas Eve, and will usually eat at an Italian restaurant afterwards for a big linguine and clams dinner. In the past, Kelly has made roasts on Christmas day, but their meal depends on where they are and what they're in the mood for.

And for a look back at Kelly's eventful year:
