When I’m able to steal the remote from Ryan and his football games, I enjoy spending my time watching cooking shows. Just watching the chef chop onions and herbs is incredibly relaxing to me. Lately, I can’t get enough of Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa with her homestyle, simple recipes and beautiful kitchen. Her barn, where she films her Food Network show, was inspired by Belgian homes with its laid back family friendly design. Her kitchen is designed more as a living space, rather than just a place where food is prepared.

Did you know that Ina’s Barefoot Contessa store in the Hamptons was featured in Something’s Gotta Give? (It’s closed since the movie was released) Also, see Ina’s tour of her 2009 kitchen of the year here.
