A Pioneer and Really Yummy Food


Frozen Pizza, frozen lasagna, frozen alfredo, fruit, vegetables, carrots, and so on.

What do these things have in common? This is my daily lunch menu. And I’m pretty darn sure you are absolutely blown away by my variety of foods I’ve chosen for my diet.

However, I can make shortbread and meltaway cookies. (I like to mix it up a little).

Shortbread and Meltaway cookies are pretty easy and quick to make. They each have about 5 step directions, for I am a very busy girl and don’t really have all that much time to cook or bake.

I do have time to watch tv though! Surprised? Thought so.

One of the shows I have recently started watching is Pioneer Woman. (Sigh, thanks mom).

Now, I usually do not watch any tv show about food. (Well, ok. I do watch Rachael Ray. But she has celebrities on her show and it’s pretty fun to watch on a day off from work when your nose is runny and you feel like poo).

Pioneer Woman is unlike any other food show. It brings out my inner most thoughts and dreams of living on a farm and owning horses that, sadly, I will most likely never have. But it’s pretty fun watching her and her family ride horses, cook all the yummy food in her really big, huge, amazing house, (which by the way, she owns another house, which I’m sure is just as really big, huge, and amazing.). Ahhhh, the joys of being a famous cook on tv.

Do you ever cook? What is your specialty or favorite dessert to eat ?

      Isn’t it so fun to watch? I love it! Makes me want to bake more. I will have to DVR Trisha and Ina’s shows! Thanks so much for commenting and stopping by. It means a lot to me.:)

    I’ve never watched her show… but then I don’t really watch TV much… and I love to cook when I have the time… but then I don’t always have the time, so yeah.

    I used to be a Pioneer Woman fan too and read her blog on a regular basis, but something wasn’t ringing true for me. She held herself out as just a “little ol’ ranch wife” but the truth is, she wasn’t even close. When I learned in reality she was married to one of the largest landowners in the US and had built a custom television studio on their property, which she cleverly concealed as a “lodge remodel” on her blog, I had to stop and ask myself, how many ranch wives have the means to do that? Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing inherently wrong with having money, this is America after all. But when you deceive your readers and misrepresent yourself as something you’re not, intelligent people’s radars go up. Most people don’t like being made to feel like chumps.

    I also learned that she has tons of household help, tutors for homeschooling her kids, maids who run errands and tidy up her multiple homes and an entire cadre of people who help her manage her blog. Rumor has it she even has butlers for miscellaneous chores. In reality, there is no Pioneer Woman. All this “little ol’ ranch wife” b.s. is nothing but a fake internet persona orchestrated by Ree Drummond and her Madison Avenue publicists. Ask yourself, how many “little ol’ ranch wives” can hire a P.R. firm and retain an agent at United Talent Agency?

    And the fact Ree has lifted most of her recipes from church and community cookbooks without crediting her sources is lame. Oftentimes, her recipes are not tested and are simply versions of Betty Crocker’s. In 2012 alone, Drummond became embroiled in not one, but two plagiarism scandals. Instead of acknowledging the incidents, Drummond simply deleted the offending posts and pretended they never happened. One such incident involved an Etsy artist. Ree’s cowardice and the fact she never apologized made it appear she was trying to cover up the entire incident.

    This website really opened my eyes about the real Ree Drummond:

    Meltaway cookies with 5 ingredients I need that recipe! I watch a lot of Food Network, but I just watch Good Eats with Alton Brown. Other then that I get sucked into the show like Chopped. I try to keep the cooking low key, but I do get into it some times. I’ve taken to cooking a whole chicken to make multiple meals it’s a lot easier since when I get home from work I’m usually tired.

    I do make some kickass enchiladas that is so simple and delicious! I’ll trade that recipe for your Meltaway cookies one 🙂

      I’ve heard of Good Eats! I’ve never seen it tho and I know people that like the show. I will post Meltaway Cookies on here soon. Would love an enchilada recipe. My mom makes the best chicken enchiladas. She has been making them since I was little. So yum!
