They removed all of our bookstores from around this area, the closest one is now about an hour away. The last one I bought at Walmart but plans just changed, the little one has a slight fever so I don't think taking him to Walmart is on my list of things to do.

isn't lack of refrigeration why cheese was invented?
Why are something like 99% of all the cheeses at the supermarket kept in refrigerated sections?


Completely off-the-wall question: Do they sell a grated Cheddar cheese product similar to grated Parmesan cheese? If so I want this for a recipe totally unrelated to the current discussion.

Yes, the grated cheese in the Kraft Mac and Cheese. And it use to be available in a can of sorts located next to the Kraft Parm in a can. Full of preservatives. Cheese is kept in the fridge area to prevent mold from forming. It is a dairy poduct after all.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier

Another lovely cookbook, interspersed with pictures and stories. The recipes are tasty sounding and the pictures are great. Good use of Cowboy and Cowgirl Icons to show you what recipes are full on fat and calories to the lighter fare.

Ree has gotten better with pictures, everything from coffee to desserts and a few canning recipes tossed in at the end. The only thing she didn't cover were dog and cat treats. Wide ranging foods from many different styles. Can't wait to get into some of the recipes and tailor them to old toothless folks.

That's my big impediment against getting into blogging recipes, my lack of photo skills, and my lack of photogenic setting for the photographs. I recently shut down my blog, because my photo skills were not competitive, and because my reduced kitchen could not support complex recipes.

I can't wait to get my hands on PW's new book.
