Guess Who I Met Today?!
Yep, I met Ina… We’re BFF’s now.
Well, at least I think we’re BFF’s 😉
Yesterday was the release of Ina’s new cookbook. Lucky for me, she was having a book signing today at my favorite cooking store! Sur La Table in Pentagon City!
The book signing started at 12pm. We got there just after 10am…
There were hundreds of people in line.
Lucky for us, we got there early enough and the line was only about fifty people deep.
Here I am with the girls! From left: Elyse, Me 🙂 , Diane, & Angela!
While we waited in line, the folks from Sur La Table baked up some of Ina’s recipes and passed `em out for us to snack on!
Red Velvet Cupcakes…
Dark Chocolate Brownies…
Double Chocolate Cookies…
Blondies & Brownies…
And finally Lemon Bars!!
After hours of standing in line, we finally made it in! Ina was as sweet as can be!! She greeted and smiled to each and every one of us!
My goal was to get a photo-op with her… but there were strict rules…
At least I got this pic of my elbow 😉
It was such a fun experience!! I can’t wait to start cooking up all her yummy recipes!
SHUT YOUR MOUTH! i am so jealous! i practically have an ode to her on my blog today…
That is AWESOME!
HOLY COOL!!!! I am jealous!
Oh, by the way — Red Velvet Cupcakes???? *swoons*

Looks like so much fun. 🙂
I love Ina!
That’s so cool! She’s one of the few people on Food Network I actually enjoy watching.
Oh, that is SO exciting!!!! And I was excited when Giada only replied to a tweet of mine. This is so much cooler!!!
What a fun looking day! And all those treats….oh my. I bet all those treats made waiting in line not so bad. 🙂
She looks just like she does on TV and on her cookbook covers! And you look as gorgeous as ever. I am so amazed at your ability to stand in line for hours…although Ina is certainly worth it!
So fun!! I’m totally craving a piece of lemon bar now 🙂
That is SO fun that you got to meet her! I hope you tried all of those goodies too!
Ina is so great! Sounds like a fantastic day!
I would die, I would just die!! Ahhhhhhhh! It’s funny. I would much rather meet any foodnetwork star than any movie star! Wow. So happy for you. 😉
