Pioneer Woman Cooks!

If you have read my blog for a while, you know that I REALLY like The Pioneer Woman's blog. She was my blog inspiration and I even tried once for her to be my best blog friend, no luck, must be the other umpteen visitor's to her site that keeps her busy. I love how she writes (very witty and stream of consciousness), her extraordinarily beautiful photography and her down-to-earth personality that comes through on her blog. Plus, she is a homeschool mom!

Then, my friends, something happened. She posted a recipe on her blog that changed my world. Yes, that's right, I made her cinnamon rolls, followed by her lasagna, and then, oh mercy, her hot wangs (yes, I said wangs, you would too if you tasted these hot little chicks). I was hooked, her recipes are accompanied by numerous pictures that made it possible for even a Mississippi educated gal (no offensive Mississippi friends) to understand and actually cook successfully.

And, now....THIS!!!!!

Pioneer Woman Cooks will be released October 27 and is available for pre-order from:
Barnes & Noble

In addition, she and the family are going on a Griswold-style Book Tour. Of course, I am hitting the road to go to the one closest to me. For all of you other PW followers/mutual bloggy friends, are you planning on going to a book signing? Check out her site for a list of locations.

If you have no idea what to make for dinner tonight or want to make something extra special for that hunky park ranger, I mean husband or main squeeze in your life, check out Ree's Tasty Kitchen website, it's FABULOUS!

Going to make Penne a la Betsy, scrumptious!

I love Ree's blog. It is the highlight of my day. Anyways, I am definitely putting her cookbook on my Christmas wish list. I have made several of her recipes, but my favorite by far is the Marlboro Man Sandwich. YUM! Try it out sometime if you haven't already. She was the inspiration for my blog to, but of course I am on a much smaller scale than she is with her 20,000 readers!!! I love your blog too. Keep it up!!!

Oh I want to go with you!!! I love her blog. I actually found it through Mommy Lion I think. Maybe. Hmmm...who cares! I love it. She posts such great recipes and articles for homeschooling. I spent an entire day reading how she met her hubby while eating chocolates. Sad? Yes it is! And I secretly want to be her best friend too.

I've got her book on pre-order. Sure wish you could come a little further south for her book signing as I'd love to meet you in person!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog! I am so excited to read about this cookbook. I am sure my husband would like trying something different than the same handful of dishes I have on a rotation! :)

I can't wait to get the cook book!!
