Well I have to say I absolutely LOVED The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl by Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman. It’s part cookbook, part her life as the wife of a cowboy and part wonderful photos.
The recipes are delicious looking (well, not so much the meat ones since I’m a vegetarian) and she has step by step illustrations of how to make them all. There are quite a few I can’t wait to try but be warned, they are definitely not low fat!
What I was most surprised about was how much I enjoyed her stories about her life married to a farmer. And I loved the story of how her and her husband met and fell in love.
Then there are the photos – truly inspiring. Wonderful photos of farm life, children, cows, horses, dogs, cowboys! I’m more determined than ever to get our farm… one day.
I’m so grateful to the library for purchasing this book. It’s definitely going to become a part of my permanent library one day.
