Desanka counts the wood-chopping block island among her favorite things in the kitchen. She spends a good amount of time in the kitchen and considers herself an "experimental chef."

"I love to cook especially for my man because he thinks am a great cook and appreciates everything I make. We are really into making pizzas right now and come up with a new one every week. We keep joking that we are just going to quit our jobs and open a pizza restaurant," she jokes.
