Waiting for Jeffrey: Tips from the Contessa

If you haven't already met her, HSSV's very own

Barefoot Contessa
(aka Tess)

is waiting for the love of her life.

Just like Ina Garten, Tess is a sophisticated lady who knows what she wants out of life -- to make you feel all warm and gooey inside.  They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.  Tess believes that there are a few other tricks to winning someone over.

# 1: Show off your skills

She may not know how to make the perfect challah, but she can attack a laser light like nobody's business. 

# 2: Never reveal your true age

Tess doesn't let a little arthritis slow her down, she won't hesitate to jump right into your lap for some cuddles. 

# 3: Always look good

Ina Garten has a staff of make-up and hair stylists help her look fabulous before she gets in front of the camera.  Tess does not.  And she still rocks a photo shoot.

# 4: Establish yourself as the Queen of the house, to avoid confusion

A Barefoot Contessa should always rule the roost, and Tess is no different.  She wouldn't mind reigning over a calm child or two, but other pets?  Off with their heads! (figuratively, of course.)

So if you prefer the aroma Eau De Cat over the scent of slow-roasted filet of beef with basil parmesan mayonnaise, come meet our Contessa.  She's here, waiting for her Jefferey.
