Blake Lively and Beth Behrs are known for sharing recipes and cooking tips, bonding over their shared love of baking. Their funny social media banter is getting fans interested, so what about a Lively/Behrs cooking show on the Food Network?
Behrs is totally into it.
Behrs recently told Showbiz Cheat Sheet that she and Lively haven’t met in person, but shared quite a few funny moments on social media. For example, Behrs posted a question during a recent Peril episode. The question was, “The original of this series starring Blake Lively and Leighton Meester as privileged teenagers in New York.”
The answer was Gossip Girl. But the contestant replied, “What is it? Two broke girlsBehrs couldn’t resist sharing the video and captioned it, “Oh kids these days….” Lively commented, “Love a crossover.”

Behrs laughed, remembering the moment on Peril. “I saw that and thought it was so funny,” she laughed. “Because Gossip Girl is like the two richest girls in New York. And we were the most broke girls in New York. And the way that guy said it on Peril, he was so pissed off. Like, ‘Uh, Two broke girls?’ It was literally one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, and they were like, “No.” And Mayim Bialik was like “No”. So good [laughs].”
“You know, I’ve never met [Lively] in person, but we DM on Instagram about the cooking. I go to her because she is so good. She gave me some cooking tips,” she said. Adding: “I would love a good Blake Lively Food Network show. It would be a dream come true for me.

But what about the crossover Lively joked about on Instagram? Behrs thought a cooking show with Lively would be awesome. “Tell Food Network to call me!” Behrs burst out laughing. Adding that Lively is the master in the kitchen and she would love to be her grasshopper.
“I love it,” Behrs said of Lively. “She’s like a mini Martha Stewart. She knows the scenery, she knows everything. And I could learn a lot from her.
“I asked her for apple pie advice around Thanksgiving, and she gave me some great ones, and it was my favorite thing. And something else I asked her that was an emergency, which I DMed her about – oh gingerbread! Behrs exclaimed. “And I think she was kind of like, ‘Yuck gingerbread…I don’t even know…’ [laughs]. But I love gingerbread cookies. And I wanted them to be perfect. But they were either overcooked or undercooked, and how thick they were. I’m just trying to figure out if I did something wrong or whatever. But that’s why baking is trial and error.
Behrs shared that she installed a marble island in her kitchen specifically for cooking. “So that I can deploy [dough] on home plate,” she said. “It was the only thing I wanted.”
Beth Behrs cooks to de-stress
Behrs definitely doesn’t give herself enough credit for her mad baking skills. A quick trip to her Instagram shows a slew of cookies, pies, cakes and more. Behrs said she turns to baking to decompress.
“It’s a really fun Zen activity to do when I’m stressed out at night. And it’s really fun to bring treats to people on show days. Plus, it’s a great gift for people’s birthdays or a fun Friday afternoon treat. So, that’s hilarious, I don’t really like baked goods.
“My husband is so pissed because he’s trying to get in shape, and I’m just going to say, ‘Hey, I made brownies. But I don’t eat them and he does. He’s like, ‘Beth! You have to go give them away!” But if you give me candy, I’ll eat it all. Candy, sold! I’m just not a big fan of baked goods. So for me, really, I do it for fun. Unless it’s a peanut butter cookie, which is my favorite thing to eat.
Comedy is another way for Beth to de-stress
She also turns to comedy to de-stress. Behrs recently partnered with Schick Intuition Bamboo for a hilarious place with a message. “This whole campaign is so close to my heart because of the use of laughter and also that feeling that we all have, ‘Oh, I’ll never be as good as influential celebrities with their green taste.’ But it’s like, ‘No, I don’t have to be. I can make small choices that have a big impact.
The Schick Intuition Bamboo features a handle made from 70% renewable bamboo, 75% recycled steel blades, and recyclable, certified sustainably sourced cardboard packaging. With this new razor, Schick hopes to inspire pride in small acts of sustainability, one shave at a time.
