I am not going to mince words: I am a bad cook. I do not love cooking, but I have come to realize that I can continue to make the same six meals the rest of our lives. I am currently reading The Pioneer Woman Love Story and it is sweet. I also got her cookbook at the library and I love the simplicity of the recipes and the gazillion pictures! I think I may have to buy this one, but I do have it for three weeks and I decided that I am going to half to try as many recipes as I can channeling Julie/Julia Project!
On August 27th the Pioneer Woman will have her own Food Network Show. I am really curious about that and will definitely be recording!
Here are some of the ingredients that are commonly used in the book that I do not consistently have in the kitchen:
- kosher salt
- active dry yeast
- garlic clove
- cocoa powder
- half n half
- heavy cream
I also do not own a pastry cutter, rolling pin (that is a running joke my house because it went missing one day and has never been found), and a biscuit cutter.
I guess I have some shopping to do!
