Behold: Ina Garten’s Sultry Valentine’s Day Playlist (She Made It for You and Your Jeffrey)

We had a gut feeling it was about time for an Ina check-in. After her bridge cocktail party and rowdy (aka carby) Super Bowl plans, we were wondering what the contessa was up to in February. Bless her chambray-clad soul, because she’s already getting ready for Valentine’s Day.

Of course, she started by sharing a precious picture of boo Jeffrey on Instagram—in it, he’s looking dapper as ever in an overcoat and shades. He’s also carrying a generous bouquet of peach roses. (We can only assume they’re for Ina.)

She captioned the post, “Just in time for Valentine’s Day—a playlist of some of the best romantic love songs of all time! My “Ina’s Favorite Love Songs” playlist is available on Apple Music and Spotify—I hope you love it! Some great music, a glass of Champagne and…what’s on the menu is up to you!”

Ooh, Ina! A playlist? You shouldn’t have. Unsurprisingly, her taste in music is as good as that good vanilla she's always talking about (store-bought is fine, obvi). It’s a healthy mix of classic jazz, blues, soul and pop—deep cuts and hits alike.

We’ve always wanted to listen to what Ina’s listening to…but we’re also a little torn by the romantic gesture. Like, we don’t really want to know what Ina and Jeffrey are doing for Valentine’s Day…because, don’t forget, this is coming from the woman who once climbed into a tent with Jeffrey on her Food Network show and said to the camera, “If this tent be rocking, don’t be knocking.”

Ina, you dirty dog.
