getting naked and stealing precision recipes with your siblings, or something.

I am going to bed. I am tired of wiping coffee off my screen. Good night!

I finally got a copy of Pioneer Woman's cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: recipes from an accidental country girl (by Ree Drummond) from the public library. After going through a couple dozen recipes all I can say is that I'm impressed! None of these are recipes you haven't heard before but PW has them done perfectly, with directions complete enough that only a total newbie would have any trouble following them.

Here's several of her recipes that I reviewed and want to try soon:
  • BBQ Jalapeno Poppersb (jalapeno halves stuffed with cream cheese & cheddar cheese, bacon wrapped and baked)
  • Pico de Gallo (her version looks good, although conventional, makes the point that tomato, onion & cilantro must be in equal parts)
  • Guacamole (just avocados + pico de gallo, and don't over mash them, definitely don't process it!)
  • PW's Potato Skins (almost like mine but + bacon)
  • Katie's Roasted Corn Salad (just a bunch of grilled vegies, chopped, plus a dressing)
  • Hot Artichoke Dip (from canned artichokes, seasoned with cayenne)
  • Cinnamon Rolls (looks like a killer recipe!)
  • Pizza Crust (very basic but I want to try her version)
  • Potato-Leek Pizza (with bacon of course!)
  • Perfect Pot Roast (very basic and conventional, but concise)
  • Chicken Pot Pie (again, very basic, uses following crust)
  • Perfect Pie Crust (with an egg and 1 T vinegar? I'll try it)
  • Chicken Fried Steak (conventional, simple, looks delicious! egg + milk dip, seasoned flour dip, egg/milk dip again, flour dip again, pan fry them, make sauce from some drippings + milk)
  • Meatloaf (she lays bacon slices over the top, then sauce & bake it)
  • Twice-Baked Potatoes (I think mine are better but I wanna know, both very similar)
  • Fried Chicken (again, basic and conventional, but it's simple and looks perfect)
I've looked at perhaps only one-eighth of the recipes and almost every one looks worth cooking, even the ones that resemble things I already have my own recipes for.

Her style is a bit too cutesy for me. I'm not interested in the non-cooking, biographical or philosophical stuff either. Nor the family pictures, but I am interested in the food pictures! Pure hard core food porn!

I've made up my mind that I will definitely buy my own copy of this book. It's only $16.50 at Amazon and all I need is my next coveted book to push it over the $25 free shipping threshold.

Note: Do not confuse this with The Pioneer Woman Cooks: food from my frontier which is her new book going to be released just this March 13th, Tuesday next week. Obviously I haven't reviewed it yet, but I intend to, and I bet it'll have some good recipes too!

So take that you PW scoffers! I give the book a hearty thumbs up!
