Paris Hilton loves cooking for her friends.

The 29-year-old socialite - who has been single since splitting with 'The Hills' star Doug Reinhardt earlier this year - insists she is an "amazing cook" and loves nothing than spending her free time creating delicious culinary treats for her pals.

She said: "I love just to, you know make a big breakfast and call my friends. I love cooking and I'm a great cook. For breakfast, I make amazing French toast. Breakfast is, like my favourite meal of the day so I always make it really big, with maybe, some omelettes and pancakes.

"I also make the best lasagne you've ever tasted."

Despite her slender frame, Paris isn't afraid to indulge in her favourite calorific treats because she knows her active lifestyle will prevent her piling on the pounds.

She explained: "My weakness is fries and cheese. I love my food. I have a slim figure anyway but I always exercise.

"I like to do Pilates and I run around my estate. I go for rides on my cute little Pink bike. I'm always rushing around so much my friends call me 'The Machine'."
