In a "Cooking with Family" segment for Live with Kelly and Ryan, Kelly welcomed her eldest son Michael Consuelos to the show to help her cook a special potato dish.

As they began their prep, co-host Ryan Seacrest asked them about whether there had been any Thanksgiving dinners at the Ripa-Consuelos household that had gone awry.

"It was the year that I did the Martha Stewart brining of the turkey," she revealed, mentioning that this was when her kids were quite young.

"I put the turkey in the oven, I rotated it around and you're supposed to bathe the turkey in the juice. And to me it didn't look right, but I just assumed it was the brine and I was a novice," she continued.

Kelly revealed her excitement about having Michael back on the show with a family throwback she shared, featuring him with her younger son Joaquin and her husband Mark Consuelos.
