BURRRRRRRRRRRR

On cold days such as these it's kinda nice to lounge on the couch and peruse new books, especially cookbooks. The Pioneer Women Cooks by Ree Drummond is a spectacular cookbook. Not only is it filled with wonderful cowboy tested recipes, but included are glossy photos, step by step instructions, and an insight into her humorous world as a ranch wife and home schooling mother of four. This book is just plain fun, you gotta get yourself a copy! Make It Fast Cook It Slow is the big book of everyday slow cooking by Stephanie O'Dea. In 2008, Stephanie used her slow cooker every single day for one year. This cookbook offers recipes from beverages, breakfast, meatless mains, to desserts and more. Each recipe has been taste tested by her family and in return they offer a "verdict"- some flops and others mainstays. All recipes in this book are gluten free.
Well, If cookbooks don't make you want to head straight to the kitchen pop in the movie Julie and Julia, a wonderfully delightful movie! Meryl Streep is (what else?) "amazing" and Amy Adams just plain "lovable". Now, go tie your apron strings and get the butter out.....

and don't forget to wear your pearls! Bon Appe'tit!
I love this movie!

I really enjoyed reading Julie's book so I can't wait to see Julie and Julia. I feel like I'm the last person yet to watch it!
I'm waiting for it and PW's book from the library. I may have to search out that slow cooker book too; I love using mine during the busy work week in the winter. There's nothing better than coming home to the smell of dinner waiting for you!

Be well! ~Andrea~

I love butter! And I think my mom has pearls...I guess we'll get this movie!
I've got two wonderful Southern Cookbooks that "somebody" gave me....I guess it's time to sit back and look for something good to eat.
Thanks Cuz.
I was just going back to this recipe from Southern Living Mag...it was a big hit. Perfect for this freezing southern weather we're having.

I had the opportunity to see the Pioneer Woman's cookbook over Christmas as my niece got it for her hubby and they let me take it home for the night. I really enjoy Ree Drummond, she's got a great sense of humor and I love all the recipes of hers I've tried so far.
Enjoy perusing your wonderful cookbooks. Feel free to invite me over for some taste testing. :)

I( went to see Julie and Julia when I was in the US last year and loved it. Julia Childs was quite a woman, I knew her name but nothing about her until I saw the film.
