Before she wrapped up the footage, Ina informed her fans that the full recipe was available in her bio. Her post came some months after People divulged that she let people know which store-bought foods she considered to be "actually fine."

The cooking star's list included chicken stock, puff pastry, vanilla extract, marinara sauce, jam, ketchup, mayonnaise, nut milk, and peanut butter.

As regards her Instagram post, Page Six, observed that some of the "Make It Ahead: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook" author joked about being worried for her after they saw Ina use an entire bottle of vodka for her cocktail.

Although she mixed the vodka with a generous amount of Cointreau, fresh lime juice, and cranberry juice cocktail, fans were left wondering if she needed somebody to check on her.

One person stated that they liked the way she measured the recipe items just as another person claimed that Ina was "my president."
