Our First Pioneer Woman Recipe

It came!  Despite the snow storm, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girlpromptly arrived on my front porch on Saturday morning.   Thank you, nice mailman!

I had been so excited to read this book, that I read the entire thing in one sitting.  All I can say is ~ LOVED IT!  It is so much more than just a cookbook. It contains beautiful photography, home-spun stories, lots of fun country clipart, and (of course) scrumptious-sounding recipes. In fact, as I read over each recipe, I realized that I want to try almost all of them.

Samantha saw me reading it and asked if she could read it when I was finished.  As soon as I finished, I handed the book over to her.  She loved all of the pictures of  Ree's horses.  She also picked out several recipes that she wants to try to make.  One was Ree's "Egg in the Hole". So, Sunday morning Samantha gave and I tried our first Pioneer Girl recipe.  






First Recipe:  A+

Easy to make.
Sam cooked the whole thing by herself (I helped flip). 
Very yummy.
Everyone loved it.

We always called it egg in a nest and it is yummy. Haven't made it in years and seeing it made me want to make some again.

Hi Tara! We made Buckeye Balls from your recipe posted a few days ago. They were delicious! Is there a secret for making them pretty as well as yummy? Most of ours looked a little, hmm, smushed. : )

Cara, I am making the cinnamon rolls now. I will post about how they turn out. So far, so good!

Becky, You should definitely get it. You will love it! So much yumminess in one book.

Scripture Melodies, Nope, no trick! Mine are not the prettiest either. However, it does get easier each year I make them. I am glad you all enjoyed them.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

My Mom made these for us when we were kids and I've made them for my kiddo's too, but we always called them "1 Eyed Monsters!" :)
