I received four cookbooks in December.
Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking
The Joy of Pickling by Linda Ziedrich
I love cookbooks.
I actually received two copies of The Pioneer Woman Cooks.
One of the unexpected bonuses since then has been my kids' interest and involvement in cooking.
I proposed to my clan that they should take part in making our nightly dinner, which the majority of the time is still a sit down affair at the dining table. I suggested they use The Pioneer Woman Cooks as their guide. I figured the easy step by step process with pictures would work well.
My three kids have teamed up 3-4 times since then to make some wonderful meals.
First off, the boys made Comfort Meatballs.
(Ignore my messy kitchen. I do.)
Next up was my daughter and middle son who made Linguini with Clam Sauce. Oh...So...Good.
Then the two youngest again, with my aid, to make Simple, Perfect Enchiladas. I must say that the sauce recipe is a brilliant touch.
And finally, my middle pretty much solo'ed making the Lasagna.
I am so happy and proud and rested.
Thank you Ree!
