I'm in L-O-V-E....

with the Pioneer Woman. Who is the Pioneer Woman you ask? Only the BEST recipe holder in the world. Lately I have been on this kick of wanting new recipes. Poor Jake eats the 5 same things each week (i only cook 5 days a week - you gotta keep the resturants in business in these "economic times"). Anywho - my ward started a cooking group and I went last week. It was so much fun! Everyone submitted recipes and then a few of us brought our recipe made so everyone could try it. The host of the activity compiled all the recipes and we all left with about 25 new recipes!! Now back to why I love the Pioneer Woman. Lisa, my cute neighbor who hosted the activity, loves the Pioneer Woman too. She found her website and has made a lot of her recipes. At this cooking activity she made the "Apple Dumplings" desseret. Lets just say it is made with A LOT of butter and cooked in Mountain Dew. HELLO?!? So good! I made them again the other night and still as tasty as ever. Her website is filled with not only recipes, but ideas on photography, gardening, homeschooling, and MUCH MUCH more! Her bio reads that she grew up in the city on a golf course. Went to college LA where she treated herself to pedicures and sushi all the time! She went back home to the midwest to visit, while there she met and fell in love with this cattle rancher guy. She now lives on a full working cattle ranch. Seriously she is great and has TONS of great recipes. The recipe on the main page today was homemade Mac and Cheese. And the best part about all the recipes, she takes pictures of all the ingredients, and takes pictures of each step so you know what it looks like.
Really you should check her out...she is great! Thanks Lisa for the great tip - I check her site EVERYDAY! http://www.thepioneerwoman.com/
