Talk about a girl on fire! With a new baby, a new husband and new album, Alicia Keys is smokin’ hot right now! She dishes on her family life, inspiration behind her music and how she keeps in shape. Plus, the Barefoot Contessa herself, Ina Garten, stops by just in time for Thanksgiving. She shares her inspiring story, her tips for turkey day and her famous pecan pie recipe.
Alicia Keys has won a whopping 14 GRAMMYs and is one of the biggest R&B stars of the last decade. Did you know she once said that she fell in love with the piano as a child? Well, luckily for her, and all of us, it loved her right back!
“She apparently had two pianos so she could give one to me… that must have been the destiny.” -Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys may be famous for her musical chops, but her gorgeous looks and toned body haven’t gone unnoticed either. One thing Katie and Alicia both have in common is they like to stay in shape, so Katie decided to visit Alicia during a workout at Crunch Gym here in New York. But before talking about staying fit, Alicia opened up about her grandmother and the huge influence she’s had on her life.
“We are all connected and have to help each other.” -Alicia Keys

From a “Girl on Fire” to a woman who’s cooking with gas, the lovely Ina Garten joined us on this Thanksgiving Eve. She’s a bestselling cookbook author and the host of a popular Food Network show, but to her fans, she’s known simply as the Barefoot Contessa.
“I love that when you cook, everyone shows up… it’s the magnet.” -Ina Garten

We couldn’t think of anyone we would rather have in the kitchen the day before Thanksgiving than Ina Garten, and she showed us how to make the maple pecan pie from her new cookbook “Foolproof.”
“I like to take a classic recipe and just make it a little better, a little more interesting.” -Ina Garten
