Stars of TV shows from the past are finding themselves in a tough spot these days: They’re still young and have names that are recognizable to millions, but opportunities to star in new shows or movies have dried up. So what’s there to do? Pitch a cooking show to Food Network or Cooking Channel! Here are five celebrities from the back in the day that we bet you didn’t realize now host cooking shows.
The co-star of Sister, Sister now headlines Tia Mowry at Home, in which we follow her through her daily life and watch her cook tasty food.

Dinner at Tiffani’s is one of Cooking Channel’s most popular new shows. The bubbly Saved by the Bell star cooks up dishes for an ever-changing lineup of guests, including Seth Green, Jason Priestley, and Tim Meadows.
This 90210 star along with her husband, Dean McDermott, have popped up on Food Network and Cooking Channel several times in recent years, usually hosting specials like Tori & Dean’s Family Thanksgiving, Dean & Tori’s Backyard Bash, and Tori & Dean’s Spring Picnic.
