Just Call Me the Pioneer Woman

Except that (thankfully) I don't have a cow.

My family gave me The Pioneer Woman Cooks for my birthday, and this week I have broken it in. I prepared her salsa recipe, which I have been eating for lunch and snacks every single day this week! I love that stuff!

So far this week I have also cooked Marlboro Man's Favorite Sandwich (p. 88), Spicy Pulled Pork (p. 94), and Beans and Cornbread (p. 100). All three recipes were absolutely delicious! Tomorrow, I plan to cook Chicken Spaghetti (p. 130). I anticipate that it will be tasty as well.

I have enjoyed having extra time in the kitchen in the afternoons now that we don't have cross country practice three days a week. My mother gave me a new Southern Living cookbook when she visited last weekend, and next week I plan to try some recipes from it.

Happy Cooking!


  1. Sounds like some good eats @ your house! Pioneer Woman is so neat! those recipes sounds wonderful. Enjoy!

  2. I love that cookbook. Try the roast and mashed potatoes (different pages). These are to die for. A little more work than I'm use to, but we had no leftovers.

  3. Yep, the chicken spaghetti is yummy. I've never made a single one of her recipes that wasn't delicious. Love her!

  4. I LOVE that salsa recipe! Can't get enough. and the chicken spaghetti is one of our family favorites!

  5. Both chicken spaghetti and pulled pork are staples around here. And of course we Texans add salsa to everything!

    There's no break here. Swimming is year-round! At least it gets me to the gym every evening.

    And great job on your half-marathon!


  6. I love me some chicken spaghetti! Make a note of that for my next visit. K. Thanks. Bye! :)
