“It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! It’s here!!” -My words yesterday at about 5:45pm. Jumping up and down and with my heart going pitter patter, I struggled to rip open the tightly sealed cardboard like a three-year-old on Christmas morning. With the help of some kitchen scissors, I managed to open the package and was greeted by Ree Drummond smiling at me. Her second cookbook had arrived!

Folks, you have GOT to get this one. The photography, writing, and delicious recipes are an essential addition to your cookbook collection. I can not believe how many recipes there are! They are all mouth-watering but some that I am especially looking forward to making are:

-Knock You Naked Brownies

-Whisky-Mustard Meatballs

-Buttered Rosemary Rolls

-Drip Beef

-Blackberry Chip Ice Cream

-Homemade Glazed Doughnuts

Whew! Can’t wait!  There are plenty of photos of the ranch, notes about Ree’s darling family and friends, and step-by-step instructions for the recipes. Ree’s quirky writing style made me literally laugh out loud while reading. It’s $29.99, but if you order online from Barnes & Noble, you can buy it new for only $16.98.

Let’s talk about cookbook corner. Well, in the corner of our kitchen we have a breakfast table. It’s kind of the landing pad of the kitchen. We fling groceries there right when we get back from the store, we keep our vitamins there so we remember to take them in the morning, we put bills there to pay that need to go out, we write reminders and cute notes to each other there, and it acts as extra prep space while cooking or packing lunches. Also on this multifunctional table is a cookbook stand which displays a seasonal cookbook or one that is currently inspiring our meals. Can you guess which book is currently in cookbook corner?

 

 

Good guess.
