Jennifer Garner…cooking show host? Okay, okay. The actress isn’t switching gears and tossing aside her extremely successful movie/TV career to start cooking for a living. But she did make an adorably sweet “cooking show” video for her Facebook and Instagram pages. And we’re kind of loving it!
Garner put her own spin on the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten’s Honey White Bread. The recipe, from Garten’s “Barefoot at Home Cookbook,” is one that Graner seems to more than enjoy. But instead of baking a simple loaf of bread, the actress changed things up a bit. Sorry Ina.
Writing, on her Facebook page, Garner said, “I tried to do an Ina! What should I do next, Ina Garten?” It’s clear that the actress has more than just a teeny tiny level of adoration for the iconic chef and cookbook creator. But instead of taking Garten’s recipe in a straightforward way, Garner used the dough to make bread men. These little bread-y guys are one of Garner’s faves and something that her own mom used to make for her.
Along with the bread men, Garner also used the dough to create cinnamon bread. Of course, she didn’t totally leave Garten’s ideas behind. She added that she’s also making, “A plain old loaf of honey white bread.” Yum!
