5 Ingredient Fix host Claire Robinson knows a thing or two about the fear of hosting Thanksgiving dinner and how to deal with it head on! Plus, she offers relationship advice that will heat up the kitchen this holiday in our exclusive interview with her .

Exclusive Interview: Claire Robinson’s Best Holiday Cooking Tips

“It stresses everybody out — the veterans are stressed too!” she says of holiday cooking. In our celebrity interview, the Food Network star advises us to forget the pressures of a full household and stick to the staples. “You have to remember what Thanksgiving is all about,” she shares in our celebrity video exclusive. “To me, that is the easiest way to get that pressure to start to release and enjoy your time in the kitchen a little more.”

Of course, we had to ask the chef about the best desserts for the Thanksgiving season too. “Pumpkin is always the classic, but put a little bit of chocolate in there,” the celebrity chef suggests.

Robinson also chatted  about a cause close to her heart: Unilever’s projectSunlight, which helps create a brighter future for children. “There’s one in five children in America actually struggling with hunger,” she reveals. “That’s 16 million children.” She encourages people to participate this holiday season by purchasing Unilever products; the proceeds will fund projectSunlight.

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with family, watch football and indulge in turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. As fun as the day may be, it can cause strain on your personal relationship if things aren’t planned out properly. The day will be extra special if you set aside time to work together as a team.

For example, if you’re preparing to host Thanksgiving with your partner, begin the process by sharing responsibilities and scheduling time together in advance. Pick a day where you will choose the turkey and get all of the accompaniments together.  This will make things much easier and it will show your partner how committed you are to having a nice experience with them.

Making a meal with your partner can be one of the most romantic things you can do.  It’s a fun and cheap way to enjoy yourself on a date night, and a simple way to get closer to your partner.  The best part about this is getting a home cooked meal – and who can resist the simple pleasure of eating in the comfort of your own home?

However, you do want to make sure you’re enjoying your meals, not suffering through them.  Many individuals find it hard to maintain healthy dining habits because they don’t want to sacrifice taste for a decrease in calories and fat.  Luckily, you don’t have to compromise taste for health, as it’s possible to have a dining experience that satisfies both your taste buds and your body.

Make the meal with your partner and feed each other while you’re cooking.  This can be a very intimate and sensual experience, so get creative!

The following is a recipe for two that will not only satiate your hunger, but will provide a romantic evening at home:
