Kelly & Michael: Louise Strahan Recipe
Not only was it Thanksgiving Family Recipe Week, this also marked Michael Strahan’s birthday, and his mother, Louise Strahan, was in the kitchen with Kelly Ripa to celebrate with her Broccoli & Rice Casserole Recipe.
Kelly and Michael: Michael Strahan Childhood
Louise is the mother of six children. Michael and his father, Gene, were sitting impatiently at a beautifully set table while the ladies were cooking up a storm. Shockingly, Louise said that Michael stole all his childhood pictures, so she could not find any great embarrassing pictures of her son to share.

Michael said she has restricted access after giving Kelly and Gelman the picture of him in ‘80s short shorts. Louise said the trick with these rich recipes is to eat in moderation.
In honor of Michael’s birthday, Louise also surprised her son with his favorite birthday cake. Get Louise Strahan’s Butter Cake Recipe (which she made on the show last year)!
