The real housewife of Malakoff, Texas!

So for Christmas my mom got me this...
The Pioneer Woman's Cookbook! It is filled with wonderful recipes that are easy to follow with step by step pictures. Doesn't everyone love a cookbook that is full of pictures?

So for the last few weeks I have been cooking my way through this lovely book! Making things like this yummy chicken pot pie, complete with a homemade crust...

And these Angel Cookies that I really believe should be called Heaven cookies because they are so good, I just know there will be some waiting behind those pearly gates one day!
I have so enjoyed using these recipes and spending time in the kitchen. It somehow makes me feel like the mom and wife I always dreamed of being with home cooked meals, fresh cookies, and warm breakfasts every morning...well minus the laundry that is piled up and the dirty dishes filling the sink (one thing at a time right)! So many of the recipes have been so delicious that I haven't even stopped to take a picture!

You can find some of Ree's recipes on her blog
I promise you won't be disappointed!

I was JUST about to try those sugar cookies...I think I will. BTW....I have caught a few episodes of those REAL Housewives....SO HORRIBLE! ; ) Good thing we've cancelled our DISH service. No temptations anymore to waste my time on that junk!
