Eat A Cookie

I was watching one of my favorite shows "The Barefoot Contessa" with Ina Garten the other day. She was making her famous Triple Chocolate Cookies.
As she took a bite of the warm cookie, with gooey goodness on her lips she said, and I quote:
"You can be miserable before you eat a cookie, and you can be miserable after you eat a cookie, but you can never be miserable while you are eating a cookie."

Amen.

Ina Garten has no formal training, and is self taught through reading American and French cookbooks. She is currently the host of "The Barefoot Contessa" on the Food Network channel.
I love the sound of Ina's voice. So soothing and relaxing. She seems at peace with herself, especially when she is in the kitchen creating. I love to watch people who have passion for their art, and who are really good at what they do.
That would be Ina.

It's true. Ina's voice sounds like her cookies probably taste. Rich and wonderful!!! I might just have to try my hand at making a dozen or two.

My mother, who has dementia, LOVES Ina. After every show, she always asks if Ina can come live next door so she can bring food over. Cracks me up. Of course, it could be a response to my dismal cooking skills.
