I don't cook a lot. This is a result of the fact that I don't stand a lot. But I still enjoy eating, and I look forward to the day when I can resume my position as Chief Cook. Until then, I've indulged my love of both eating and cooking by working on my recipe database, combing through old cookbooks, and in the past couple of years, by reading and enjoying food blogs.
What makes a great food blog? Well, great recipes, for one thing. Recipes you know you can do at home and you can taste them as you read. Lots of pictures. And a certain je ne sais quoi that you can't name but you know it when you see it.
Well, I saw The Pioneer Woman Cooks and I KNEW it.
This blog has it all: great food, impeccable instructions, superb photos (LOTS of them), a love for eating and sharing food, rip-roarin', thigh-slappin' copy, and just an overall joy for living. It's irresistible. Do go over and see what I mean. And then go cook something good (and bring me some).
If you get hooked on the Pioneer Woman, you'll want to check out her main site, Confessions of a Pioneer Woman.
