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.
