I'm a sucker for a good writer. And that, my dear friends, she is. She has been blogging for years. Where have I been? hmmm
As I shared her with other friends, they knowingly nodded their heads and began to tell me about Pioneer Woman Recipes. I know that not all of you will remember my trials in the kitchen; you can click HERE to read about the Cheese Crisp Fiasco. I am not a natural. Never have tried very hard. But, when I have, it hasn't always been a celebration.
For his birthday dinner Dad chose Brisket, au Gratin Potatoes, Pinto Beans (we call them red beans), Cornbread and Chocolate Trifle.
After reading The Pioneer Woman's recipes, I volunteered to make the brisket, potatoes and beans. Wasn't I brave?
I printed PW's recipes, went to the store with David (he scratched his head with me as we called Mom to ask what "heavy cream" was), and headed to the kitchen for some marinating. On Sunday, David was right by my side, wondering where this domestic goddess has been in the almost 3 years we've been dating. I must have been channeling Ree Drummond. It was easy!
The brisket? Holy cow, it was amazing. Moist. Falling apart. And HA! I made it! Wow!
David and my family are happy Ree Drummond was born, and they are happy that I discovered her. We may never be the same after all this celebrating!
Do you cook Pioneer Woman recipes? What is your favorite?
Happy Monday! ~Mindy
