If Williams is doing the cooking, then she likes to wow her friends and family with a number of dishes. "For years I was always making gumbo for everyone," she said. "My other go-to dishes are something I call a 'seven-bean delight' which really only has five beans, but don't tell. And roasted chicken with garlic."
Aside from tacos, there is another food Williams is obsessed with — moon pie. "I love moon pies. If "Moon Pie" sponsored me, I'd be bigger than any house on this planet! I love the originals: banana, chocolate, or vanilla. Now I really want a Moon Pie!"
Williams took the rest of the year off, gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., but is now ready to pick up where she left off.
In order to maintain her sporting dominance, Williams has to eat right before a match. So what sort of food does a 23-time tennis major champion serve up?
Here's everything Williams likes to have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

For the first dress When Anna Wintour asked me what I wanted to wear I said "a cape" I just want to wear a cape" she said: "well Sarah Burton with @alexandermcqueen is the one for you.” Thanks Anna. Thanks Sarah. I felt like a princess and superwoman all at once. 📸: @mistadubb @ericamelissa_

@serenawilliams: You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport--I’m talking about as a mother and as a wife.
I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together.
And my whole life I didn’t even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment.
And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today.
And I am so grateful, and I am so in love. 📸 @melbarlowandco @allanzepedaphotography
