The Pioneer Woman Cooks:Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl
I love cookbooks...any and all cookbooks. I have bookcase full of just cookbooks. Last Christmas I got this amazing new cookbook and I have to say it will be my new "new bride" gift. I sit and page through her cookbook often and always end up trying one of her terrific recipes. Ree Drummond is a wonderful blogger- turned- author and her style is like chatting with a best girlfriend, comfortable,easy going and funny. Recipes are shown in beautiful photography step by step....literally. EVERY step is accompanied by a photo. Talk about NO FEAR in the kitchen. Her recipes are down home and hearty...meat and potatoes, country cooking. There are a few 'high brow' recipes for company...but for the most part just simple delicious food. Her ingredients are easy to find and she is only using real food.... like butter! I enjoy her humor, stories of her family and her ranch...and of course how she ended up on that ranch with her "marlboro man". She is an excellent photographer and she even has a photography section on her blog. Check out her fantastic blog as well at http://thepioneerwoman.com/ She two other books on the market now as well including her just released childrens book. She is living the dream! I hope you check out her cookbook!
