A Tasty Frontier Inspired Giveaway

We have a winner!!!! Congratulations to Tina who is the winner of the Pioneer Woman Cookbook.
She says she is a huge fan of Savvy Moms Guide and am so delighted that they introduced me to The Pioneer Woman Cooks.
Please email us at thesavvymomsguide@yahoo.com with your contact information.

Happy Cooking. Smiles~

Do you know Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman? Neither do we. But we sure wish we did. We might not be able to speak if we were on her frontier, but we are certain over a Starbucks we would become the Best of Friends.

Anyways….Ree is a desperate housewife, who lives in the country, channels Lucille Ball, Vivien Leigh, and Ethel Merman. She is a witty writer. Phenomenal Photographer (she offers helpful tutorials). And an amazing Cook.

Publishers weekly best explains the book as giveing readers a slice of frontier life in this likeable-enough collection of recipes and dispatches from the Oklahoma ranch she shares with her husband and children. Replicating the step-by-step photography that made her blog such a hit, Drummond walks readers through dishes ranging from simple-Guacamole, Chili, Artichoke Dip-to more complex, such as from-scratch Cinnamon Rolls and Sherried Tomato Soup. Drummond's careful coaching will help anyone intimidated by the kitchen fearlessly crank out favorites like Chicken Fried Steak, Meat Loaf and Rib Eye Steak with Whiskey Cream Sauce. While the recipes are reliable home cooking standards, relentless references to her husband, known as the Marlboro Man, range from distracting to juvenile, giving what could have been a comfort food classic the feel of a junior-high class project.

So do you want to run out and Buy it…Or order it? Or maybe you want to hop on a plane and fly to Oklahoma to meet her (ok so maybe that is what we want to do).
