Rachel Ray, Paula Dean and Nigella Lawson better watch out ... Uncommon Blonde is fierce in the kitchen. Well, not really but I am cooking a lot more and having a lot of fun with it. Pioneer Woman has a fabulous site with lots of recipes and ideas. If you have not been to the cooking section of her blog you are missing out. I think I like her because she's a photographer too so there are great pics everywhere. Delicious recipes and loads of pictures, it's a cooking dream! Many of the recipes have a little more butter than I would prefer but she's married to a real life cowboy so I guess she's allowed. I love how she posts step-by-step instructions with pictures - it's sooo helpful when you're doing something new and unsure what it's supposed to look like. Last night I found the link to these Chedder Biscuits that I can't wait to make. Yumm!
Other things I have made from her site are these steak sandwiches (guaranteed to make your husband love you forever except he probably won't liVe that long because his arteries will be clogged in no time). Chicken spaghetti is also one of my husband's very favorite casseroles (I use whole wheat pasta to make it a little healthier).
The other night I was watching Jon & Kate plus 8 and I was reminded of one of their favorite snacks - monkey munch. I made it last night and I forgot one minor detail, I do not have 8 kids to help me eat it. I can't stop eating it. Someone make me stop!
