Katie Holmes has said that her husband Tom Cruise has introduced her to a whole range of risky adventures.

Speaking to Parade magazine about her Christmas Plans, the Batman Begins star said her thrill-seeking spouse had taken her mountain climbing for the first time and even treated her to a spin on a world war two fighter jet.

Holmes said that being with the Mission Impossible star brought "constant thrills and joy", adding that there was always a surprise around the corner with Cruise.

The star, who has taken a break from acting, said she counted her blessings everyday and was always learning new things from her husband and her daughter Suri.

Speaking to the magazine about her Christmas plans, the actress said she and Cruise's family would spend the break in the mid-western US state of Colorado and that she would be cooking up a feast for the holidays.

"We love cooking… I’m a huge fan of pie, especially pecan. I will probably cook some garlic mashed potatoes and maybe a cheesecake. We always make a lot of sugar cookies with decorating and sprinkles."

Holmes also praised her husband's skill in the kitchen saying that he made a delicious Pasta Carbonara and Lemon Pasta.
