I have to admit I'm not the greatest cook in the world but I do enjoy cooking. With my kids getting older and fending for themselves and my husband working two jobs I just don't have to cook every night. When its just my daughter and me home we don't really cook a meal we mostly just have soups, salads and sandwiches...whatever is easy. But lately I've had more time to spend in the kitchen trying new recipes and enjoying every minute of it.

A few months ago I picked up a copy of Ree Drummond's cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks. I've followed her blog for a couple of years now and have always loved her quirky style. Her recipes are family friendly and so easy! No fancy ingredients here...lots of times I already have what I need in the pantry or freezer and can easily whip up one of her recipes. She also writes each recipe out step by step with great pictures so even I can follow along and not screw them up!
I will be posting some of our favorite recipe's from the cookbook along with some of my families other favorites.
Next month Ree is coming to St Louis on a book tour for her newest book, a novel, The Pioneer Woman Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. She also wrote a cute children's book, Charlie the Ranch Dog, that is coming out in the Spring. She posts about Charlie all the time on her blog and now he will be the star of his own book! So cute. I'm going to the book signing with my 15 year old daughter who is also a huge fan.
If you haven't visited Ree's blog you really should she has a cute quirky style and takes awesome pictures too.
Here is the link: The Pioneer Woman
You can find all of her books at Amazon.
