Where have you been the past 10 years?
Ina has a thread every few weeks.
A life without Ina is not worth living.
There's nothing gayer than an Ina Garten dinner party.
Her friend TR is total sex on two legs. One of the hottest men I've ever seen.
Ina Garten Is doing the best with what she haves. Good for her!
I love her and her recipes usually turn out delicious. Sure she's pretentious...doesn't bother me.
No, she disappeared because she was afraid of running into people like you, OP. Shaking in her boots!
She seems like an odd duck to me.
Her recipes are very good.
She is quite round, actually.
She is in Pittsburgh next week, appearing at a speaking engagement
Her cookbooks sell incredibly well. She's definitely still around.
If YOU were married to Ina you'd suck cock on the side too!
Isn't she, basically, a more polished Hamptons version of Paula Deen without the phony accent, racism, and more gay friendly? They both realized that your average American will eat just about anything if it's rolled in butter and sprinkled with sugar and made a fortune out of it.
Love her show. Everything about it is soothing. I don't think she's a snob. She just enjoys using some special ingredients occasionally. Let's not fall to the lowest common denominator.
She needs a stylist. Just because she's heavy doesn't mean she has to wear those big shapeless button down shirts all the freaking time.

Is a pig's pussy pork?
Oh, excuse me!
Must have been all those white beans and duck fat in my cassoulet! No matter. I'll just light this Diptyque candle.

We usually refer to them as "shents." Shirt + tent = shent.
"How good is that???"
Every Ina Garten thread should always conclude with the following pithy but true statement:
Ina Garten is a CUNT!
Make A Wish Foundation say she's a supporter, other charities benefit from things she does for them. And the woman is pilloried by some shit-for-brains because she says no to one request. I wonder how many of you do as much as she does for charity.
And the fact is, lots of minor celebs like Ina Garten have appallingly busy schedules. A charity lunch may have been planned 6 months before. Her diary may simply be so busy that she can't fit in anything else, or afford the time.
They're not here to sacrifice their every moment to making flyover fraus and their overly-sentimental gayfrau imitators feel good. She said no to one request. She's not Paula Deen.
Around? Of course she's around, around 245, 250 maybe.
Cue the incessive nervous laughter...
R14, I think Ina makes better quality food than Paula did.
I loved her early shows, the cheesy ones with her friends dragged into stupid scenarios where they needed Ina to make them scones or something. Her house was used at that time and it was a good touch.
But...she is AWFUL with other guests. She talks over people, interupts and is in general determined to be the center of attention. She should stick to her gay coterie of the Hamptons and avoid Giada, Alton, etc.
I think that new set was built on her property by the Food Network.
And she gets to keep it.
I like Ina. It's soothing to watch her cook and the three recipes I've tried have all been worth the effort. She wears what suits her. Jesus Christ boys. If she wore something form fitting you'd all be howling about that. Who cares? Do you go mock Lidia for her cardigans and bald spot? And so what she's a little insecure with the nervous laugh. I have never seen an Ina Garten recipe using Cream of Crap soup and a pound of butter like Paula Deen, The Prairie Woman and other Food Network shlocks. And I'm positive I never will. So that is a completely unfair categorization. Why not save your animus for a true target like Ted Cruz and go egg his forehead or something.
I like Ina, too.
I wonder what would comprise a DL-approved cooking show--11 minutes eating, 11 minutes throwing up what you just ate?
There are people far worse on the Food network than Ina. I can't bear to watch Sara Lee, Bobby Flay, Rachel Ray and Tricia Yearwood. Why Tricia Yearwood was given a cooking show baffles me.
Does books ain't best sellers.
Typical DL jealous bitches that someone has a better life than you.
Her blue cheese and yogurt dip will change your life.
Speaking of crappy food network shows, have y'all seen the promos for the new show with Rocco Dispirito? Another fucking fake restaurant makeover show with white trash family members fighting to create fake drama.
It's SANDRA Lee, R30, and she's a goddess.
fetishizing rich bitches, how boring.
I'm loving the new show, Heartland Table, which airs on Saturday morning. She has some great recipes.
Why would it OP?
Ina may not have even seen the request.
I just made some of the Gorgonzola-Yogurt dip, R33. Delicious.
[quote]Her blue cheese and yogurt dip will change your life.
If by "change" you mean "shorten," then I agree.
Ina's on the cover of the November "Good Housekeeping" wearing a lovely purple shent. (And photoshopped to within an inch of her life.)

Let me tell you about Ina Garten.....
I like Ina. Her recipes work well. She seems pleasant enough on her show. Giada, Sandra and Paula are all unwatchable.
The "Make A Wish" kid thing - meh. There are lots of things to wish for, I'm sure little Jayden or Madysin chose another one.
I'm with the OP. there is something g sneaky and untrustworthy about that fat old hen. She's too cheerful and I suspect she is a sociopath. And she's fat so of course she is chirpy and jolly. She needs a full makeover starting with losing about 100 pounds.
Sorry for being off topic guys. I don't have cable TV anymore. Is Tyler Florence still on the Food Network? He was always one of my favorites and I did enjoy some of his recipes. I dared to try his Beef Wellington and it was delicious.
Ina did not refuse that sick child, but rather the sick child's mom, who was obsessed with her. And I don't even like Ina that much.
R48 They show repeats of "Tyler's Ultimate," and he's also the host of "The Great Food Truck Race."
I was just in the latest Kohl's ad! Ha!
I don't have a problem with Ina. Her show is soothing to watch in a way. The video techniques are good as far as angles, lighting, etc. I always seem to learn something new about cooking whenever I watch her show, which isn't too often.
I just made the chicken with 40 cloves of garlic recipe.
Truly delicious. White wine, cognac, a bit of cream...
OP, her fans don't give a shit about Make-a-Wish or sick kids, any more than the Food Network does.
A producer formerly connected with Guy "Fieri" (born Ferry) gave an interview about what a homophobic douche he is. The FN didn't even bother to issue a denial, to my knowledge.
Which makes the Paula Deen business even more peculiar. The woman who sued has since apologized to Deen but she'll never recover.
While I'm not a big fan of Deen's, she had more personality than her replacements (e.g. Bree? and the singer). The only FN celebrity I'd even watch now is arguably the worst cook, Sandra Lee, who's amuses me with her 100 proof cocktails.

Why don't YOU try fucking Andrew Cuomo sober then get back to me.
There's a reason they call Ina's farts "little Chernobyls.."
I'm hoping Sarah Jessica Parker is a guest someday on Ina Garten's show. I can just imagine the erections that will happen on DL when the fart jokes meet the horse jokes. It will be spectacularly unimaginative!
