  David Beckham, Kendall Jenner and More Stars Cooking With Their Parents Learning from the best! While many stars are accomplished cooks in their own right, there’s no denying that several of them inherited their culinary skills and love of food from their parents. Take Adrienne Bailon, for example. The Real cohost cooked with her mom, Nilda Felix, in a September 2018 video on her YouTube channel and could barely contain her excitement. The mother-daughter pair made empanadas using a trusted family recipe. “This recipe means so much to me because it’s actually my favorite food ever in life,” Bailon explained. “I watched my mom make this recipe when I was growing up nonstop and I watched my grandmother make it. It’s always my special request when she’s here.” The former Disney Channel star, who is married to Israel Houghton, is such a fan of her mom’s cooking that she even adapted the recipe for her own family and makes a Thanksgiving-themed version of the dish each year. “We create empanadas filled with all of the Thanksgiving leftovers,” she said, noting that the treats are made with cranberry sauce, sweet potato, turkey, stuffing and more. “It is so good!” Another star who has learned a lot about food from her family is Chrissy Teigen. The Cravings author has been open about how much food knowledge she’s absorbed from her mom, Vilailuck Teigen, and the pair frequently cook together in videos for the star’s Cravings website.

The agency, in announcing the change Friday, noted that that it is almost entirely funded by fees rather than taxpayer money and that a recent review found that current fees would leave the agency underfunded by approximately $1 billion a year.

Immigration Services is "required to examine incoming and outgoing expenditures, and make adjustments based on that analysis,” Joseph Edlow, the agency's deputy director for policy, said in a statement. “These overdue adjustments in fees are necessary to efficiently and fairly administer our nation’s lawful immigration system, secure the homeland and protect Americans.”

It had initially alerted more than two-thirds of the workforce they would be furloughed starting July 20, but now that date has been pushed back to Aug. 3.
