*Who would have thunk Beyonce knew how to cook, given her busy celebrity schedule.

Even though the singer is busy promoting her latest album, she’s already thinking of her next project — a cookbook.

According to recent reports, the star has been encouraged by actress Gwyneth Paltrow to go ahead and publish her own soul food recipes.

“Her mom Tina started the tradition whereby anywhere in the world they are, she always puts on a soul food spread of collard greens, cornbread, mac ’n’ cheese and fried chicken,” one source told The Mirror. “Bey would love to include these family recipes in a book.”

Without looking too deep into the move, it could be a sign that Beyonce is ready to slow things down in life and start making a family.

“As she thinks about a family, she’s spoken about this with Gwyn and is raring to go,” the insider said

Beyonce hasn’t commented on it yet, but fans would sure be in for a treat to see what the singer cooks up.
