My New Favorite Cookbook - Pioneer Woman Cooks

I was clicking through blogs one day while the newest addition to our family was sleeping. I didn't have the energy to do laundry, pick up toys or anything else of the manual labor variety. I was reading blogs, clicking through here and there until I came across a post referencing the cookbook "The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl", by Ree Drummond.

I also stumbled upon the author's blog. A great read on a daily basis!

So far I've made only a couple things in the cookbook and bookmarked some additional recipes on her blog as well. The recipes have turned out wonderfully. The beans (my 2 year old loved these) and the cube steak sandwiches. Next up is the chicken spaghetti and maybe even the biscuits and gravy.

This is real food. Not the 50 ingredient, make trips to 5 specialty stores to get everything you need cookbook. It's the type of food my Dad grew up eating and made for us.

Also included in the cookbook are stories about the author's life. These are also very entertaining.

I can't wait to try more recipes!


  1. I love The Pioneer Woman! Try the macaroni and cheese...or the Best Lasagna Ever. Both are WONDERFUL!

  2. I will definitely try both. I wonder how I only came to know about Pioneer Woman now, where have I been???
