Have you ever found something that you totally fell in love with the instant that you came in contact with it and you COULD. NOT. WAIT. to tell everyone you know about it? I had this very expierence a few weeks ago when my copy of "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" arrived in the mail from Amazon. I had sent a few reviews of it out in blogland and I decided to order it as a birthday present to myself. I cannot even begin to gush enough about how much I love this cookbook. I mean, I love cookbooks. They are one of my most favorite things. But, this cookbook, I sat down and read from cover to cover, front to back, first page to last page, all in one day.
Not only are the recipes to die for, I mean, I would cook every single recipe in this book. Every one. No lie. But Ree Drummond, or the "Accidental Country Girl" as she calls herself, is wildly clever and witty and the way she shares her life in this book is endearing. I loved it. Oh wait, I already said that.
As a testiment, I've already tried my first recipe from the cookbook for a Berry Cobbler and it was "Mmmmm so delicious" as my little man says! Even my husband told me two different times tonight that the cobbler was great. The recipe in the book used blackberries, but any berries could be used so I used blueberries. Start to finish it was done in 70 minutes, 10 mins prep and 60 mins to bake. So easy and so yummy. Have a look for yourself:

Try the book and definitely try the cobbler. You will not be disappointed. I will let you know what I decide to try next!
