It’s only a matter of time before Jennifer Garner’s fake cooking show, #PretendCookingShow, is picked up by an ambitious streaming service. (This is your chance, Apple.)
While random sunny days and super blooms are teasing what we hope is the arrival of warmer weather, some parts of the country are experiencing extremely un-spring-like bouts of hale and snow. Cue, Jennifer Garner’s winter oatmeal recipe, which she shared in the latest installment of her #PretendCookingShow series on Instagram.
The hastagged video series (available on her Facebook page and on IGTV) showcases the 13 Going on 30 star’s delightfully off-beat sense of humor. She whistles while she works, growls, and fake smiles like a regular Gen Z Vine-star. Come for the recipe, stay for the Yoda impressions.
Other noteworthy episodes from the #PretendCookingShow include a salad edition that celebrates what is “seasonal and handy” and a struggle batch of bagels hashtagged, #notaprettybaker.
The hearty oatmeal recipe includes two apples and lots of brown sugar. She suggests going for equal parts water and equal parts almond milk for added richness. Her recipe is a spin on Taste of Home’s “Oh-So-Good Oatmeal” and she reminds us of Ina Garten’s sage advice in the caption, "The trick to learning how to cook is finding something you eat and making it over and over again,” adding that “that’s how you gain a little confidence."
