I always think of Ina when I use vanilla or mayo. She is so sincere, but it's funny. Really, how many times has anyone said "this cake is good, but it could use more vanilla". I never understood the whole vanilla thing. If I don't have it, I don't use it. Now Almond Extact is a different story. It is very strong in flavor and will change the taste of what you are baking.

I love Ina and love when she says use "good" mayo, vanilla, spoons, whatever. Great pic!

She drives me batty with her "good" vanilla. I just want to hit her over the head with my big plastic jug of vanilla from the warehouse store. I assure you my cakes don't taste like poop.

But they do taste like poop.

You can't taste vanilla?? So you think all these years people have been including it in recipes just to mess with people? Proof positive that most of the people who critique cooks and food don't have a clue what they're talking about.

This is the very reason she tells you to use "good" vanilla -- so you taste it.

She's not asking you to buy 80-dollar olive oil. She's asking you not to shop in a warehouse (as someone here mentioned) and venture into, you know, somewhere like Trader Joe's.

Hey Jake,

Since you're tight with Ina, why don't you ask her to give us all a tutorial on " Procuring The Best Vanilla , Secrets of the Barefoot Supply Chain Manager ".

I am sure she is Six Sigma certified on Madagascar vanilla pods and would love to share the differences between this and all the other cruddy stuff.

I wonder why she doesn't shill for her favorite vanilla company ? It would be an ideal match. She obviously believes in it.Why not get paid for it ?.Ask Sandra Lee for some tips on commercial endorsements.

Vanilla bought at Warehosue store in Big plastic jug = wood grain alcohol flavoured by charred wood, caramel and other nasty shit.

People that think vanilla has no taste = need scar tissue on tongue removed

People that don't understand the whole "vanilla thing" = severely culinarily retarded

Do you know what is so funny, I know what you took this from, and I actually paused the television like 8 times and had the SAME image frozen on my tv for a good 15 minutes because I thought it was amazing. hahaha.

The picture is a riot and some of these comments are priceless. LOL

And, thanks for finally changing your banner picture. I was getting tired of seen Pauler's five chins.

A few years ago I made a childhood cookie favorite of mine, Chocolate Crinkles, with great vanilla. I had such a flashback to my childhood BUT the current version was so much better tasting - figured out it was the vanilla.

I very much enjoy Ina's show.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who, whenever he uses vanilla, changes the recipe in his head to read "really good vanilla." LOL! I actually made my own per her instructions in The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, and I can assure you it is really good (though I'm told it is even better when made with Maker's Mark bourbon than when made with "really good" vodka).

"Good vanilla" does make a difference and yes you can taste the difference.

I love Ina!

She uses Neilsen Massey vanilla. Maybe they do a private label for Williams Sonoma.

I personally like crappy vanilla. OK.

Why is Ina wearing so much makeup in the newer episodes?!!

Ina is very affected. Good Vanilla doesn't show on that same blue top she wears everyday size XXXXXlg

I have a huge gripe about Ina.

I think if I had heard her say
"Honey Vanilla Fromage Blanc" one more time I would have jumped out of the window. Bust mostly Ms Ina says "Oh just add Framboise Liqueur or Amaretta Di Savonna, or whatever you have around the house"! Yeah, how about some old socks. Is she serious who keeps that stuff if you're not a professional chef? Tone it down Ina baby we're all not a fag hag from the Hamptons.

I've watched that show a lot, and I don't recall seeing that expression on her face(Whoa!).

OK anonymous@1:56 dont go there... IF you are gonna make the recipe, do it right or dont do it at all..If it incurs Pernod,or Framboise or anyother "out of the ordinary" ingridient just use it.. You will notice the enhancement of flavor that comes with it. Perhaps you should watch something more your speed.. say something like a lil Aunt Sandy?
I love Ina and think she has one of the best shows ever! The mere fact that she hasnt "whored" herself out like most of the other personalities on FN have. She is a class act and I would LOVE to be like her. Maybe I should go look for my Geoffrey!
The only thing that kinda gets on my nerves is this. Whenever shes making something she has to say the whole entire name. She just cant say scones,a frittata, and some artichokes.. Its gotta be "Now who wouldnt like this breakfast..Cranberry Orange Scones,Jersualem artichoke fritatta, and raspberry butter?" Just say butter no need to reiterate so much, Ina!!
