This book underscores my deep-seated need to be invited to stay at The Lodge. Seriously, it's only an hour or two down the highway from Wichita. I'll even bring our basset hound, Stella, since I know Ree's partial to her kind…
I hadn't picked up The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl when it came out last summer, so I decided to splurge and get a two-fer and try my hand at some of her vittles while I read the novel.
I decided to make the Perfect Enchiladas and I must admit, they were pretty much perfect. Bob is an avowed enchilada-hater and he couldn't stop eating the things. Seriously, we had them for days until they were completely gone. And they might even be more delicious as leftovers! Here's a Whrrl story about shopping for the ingredients and making the enchiladas:
Comfort food at it's finest, with plenty of great photos and backstories. The story of Ree's courtship with Marlboro Man is enough to make even the most hard-hearted cynic swoon– even if you don't like reading romances, her playful sense of humor and her brother Mike's antics will keep you amused. A must-have for ardent fans of The Pioneer Woman and a treat for newcomers.
