The Way To Jeffrey's Heart!


Ina Garten knows the way to a man's heart is through his stomach and she has known The Way To Jeffrey's Heart for nearly 50 years! 

If you've watched Ina Garten on Food Network then you know that Jeffrey is really the star of the show. Ina is constantly spoiling Jeffrey with her cooking, whether she is making his Friday night chicken, packing them a picnic, or cooking French in their Parisian home. In fact, as proof, she has an entire cookbook dedicated to Cooking For Jeffrey!

We can easily see why Ina loves cooking for Jeffrey. He simply put her biggest fan and loves everything she makes.

Do you know The Way To Jeffrey's Heart? 

Make and share The Way To Jeffrey's Heart by Sunday, November 19th and link a picture up below.

How Easy Is That?

We've witnessed it time and time again. Ina prepares a lavish meal and, after plating it beautifully, she remarks, "How Easy Is That?" 

So this week, in honor of Ina's catch phrase, we are celebrating all things easy and quick!  Since Ina has a way of making everything look simple and approachable this could, in fact, apply to nearly any Ina Garten recipe. However, Ina takes things a step further dedicating an entire cookbook to the premise of ease, with her cookbook titled How Easy Is That?  Feel free to take inspiration from any of her recipes!


Join us in saying How Easy Is That? by sharing your Ina Garten dish. Please make and post your dish by Sunday, October 22nd. Please also be sure to link it below, leaving a comment, so that we don't miss out on your dish!

Hi, Ina!



For the past 15 years we have watched as Ina has thrown open the doors of her Hamptons home and welcomed us in with her delicious food and entertaining tips. It doesn't matter if she's cooking for her husband (Jeffrey), or hosting one of her parties, it is sure to be extraordinary...and she makes it look so effortless!

Join us as we say a humongous Hi, Ina! and welcome her as our newest chef in the I Heart Cooking Clubs series. If you're familiar with Ina then you know it will be a dazzling journey of French and American cuisine, and there will be plenty of cheese, puff pastry, and desserts to pave the way, as well as  a few salads for good measure. If not, then this is the perfect time to grab a book, or search online, and get familiar with Ina's simplified back-to-basics approach.

Join us by making any Ina Garten dish that says Hi, Ina! Please make and post your dish by Sunday, October 8th. Please also be sure to link it below, leaving a comment, so that we don't miss out on your dish!
