Barefoot Best Friend?

Yesterday, for the first time in over 4 months, I watched an episode of Barefoot Contessa.


I was over at some friends’ house, spending time with them and their new baby and making biscuits and gravy, and we caught two episodes while we were eating and watching the baby sleep.

And all of a sudden, I wanted go buy a denim button-up shirt and black capris, put on my pearl earrings, and head off to the Hamptons so I could be Ina’s new best friend and eat every meal in her beautiful kitchen.

I know this is not normal.

But, I’m okay with it.


  1. I get sucked into her shows!! She makes it all seem so effortless and relaxing.

  2. Oddly enough I know exactly how you feel. I couldn’t even eat half the stuff she cooks and yet I’d love to be bff’s at their table with Jeffrey and Ina.

  3. Haha I can’t stand the Barefoot Contessa! LoL, I like a lot of her recipes, but I can’t stand to watch her. Ever notice that she is quite the lush. I’ve never seen anyone get so excited to add Brandy to every dish she can think of. ;)

  4. I love Ina. I wish I could eat all of the goodies that she makes, but I’m afraid my jeans would protest :)

  5. hehe, can we get a picture of that? :)

    • :) If I ever get that outfit, sure! I would totally dress up like her for Halloween, but I doubt anyone around here would know who I was :)

  6. My father-in-law feels the same way about Ina. Haha

  7. ina garten is my absolute favorite! i LOVE her!!

  8. That’s funny! She is amazing :) I completely understand.

  9. I love the Barefoot Contessa! Oddly, the only time I watch her is while running on the treadmill at the gym. She has me drooling over her delicious recipes and the beachy Hamptons scenery.
