If there’s one thing we love to watch Martha Stewart do — besides transform our dinners, homes and, who are we kidding, lives — it’s boss celebrities around the kitchen.

The list of Hollywood A-listers who have stepped into Stewart's kitchen goes on and on. She has whipped up pumpkin pie with Betty White, made oven-dried heirloom tomato pizza with Jennifer Garner, explored Spanish dishes like croquettes with Serrano ham and Manchego cheese with Anthony Banderas and even savored some spicy lentil-walnut burgers with Chevy Chase.

In a recent interview with TODAY Food at the Martha Stewart Food & Wine Experience, Stewart picked a few of her favorite celebrity chefs and dished on who knows what they’re doing in the kitchen ... and who doesn't.

Stewart told TODAY that most of her preferred guests have some culinary chops, but there's one major exception: Snoop Dogg.

“Oh, well Snoop's my favorite, obviously,” the domestic maven told TODAY Food of her "Martha and Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party" co-host — even though he's not exactly a mastermind in the kitchen. "I like Snoop because he is put off by so many ingredients. And he's scared of things and that’s fun too — it's fun to shock him," Stewart told TODAY Food.

Despite being shocked by certain things, Snoop is usually up for new things and Stewart added that he fun to cook with "because he’s just so amusing about it.”

There is one ingredient that Snoop is pretty familiar with, however: marijuana.

"Oh, he always does [make marijuana edibles]," Stewart told TODAY. "All his little bits of [cheese] and sprinkles of green."

Aside from Snoop, Stewart dished on some of her other favorite cooking buddies, like Russell Crowe. The Oscar Award-winning actor is also a winning culinary counterpart in Stewart's book.

“I loved [cooking with] Russell Crowe because he’s actually a good cook," Stewart said.

Crowe appeared on “The Martha Stewart Show” back in November 2006, where he showed off his culinary talents by stuffing and roasting a Thanksgiving turkey. Crowe brought along a few wines to accompany the holiday show — including one called Hill of Grace that’s known among his family to be shared with close friends.

“And then he promised me his favorite wines and sent me cases of the best wines I’ve ever tasted from places in Australia and New Zealand,” Stewart added. “Really nice.” What a gentleman!

They must have been because Stewart has since tried her own hand in the wine business, with many bottles in the affordable $10 to $25 range.

Stewart also enjoyed cooking with a few unlikely chefs: including "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers, star of "Late Night with Seth Meyers.'

"Jimmy Fallon is a really good cook despite his character he portrays and his comedy is kind weird," Stewart said. "He’s a really good cook."

But not all of Stewart's celebrity cooking encounters happen on the air.

"Oh, like, Blake Lively likes to make goopy desserts and she’s my neighbor," Stewart said, adding that "she’s fun to cook with because she’s like a Christina Tosi-type of cook."

Tosi is the mastermind behind the playful, dessert heaven: MilkBar, which has 14 stores in New York City, Washington D.C. and Toronto.

Stewart said she's also enjoyed cooking with supermodel Karlie Kloss, who "fancies herself a cookie maker but ya know when does she have time to cook, c'mon?"

However, there's one celebrity Stewart has yet to cook with.

"I wanna cook with Kim Kardashian — see if she knows how to cut something with a knife. I wonder. Can she slice a tomato? I wonder," Stewart told TODAY Food with a chuckle.

Seems like Kardashian has an open invitation to appear on "Potluck Dinner Party" soon!
