February, the month of LOVE...Love #1 The Pioneer Woman-Ree Drummond (and her recipes)

Here I am stepping back into the blogging world.  We have had an interesting turn of events at our house over the past few months (a blog post or twelve all their own) that have caused us to live in survival mode, but we have survived and here I am...
To get myself back into the groove of things I decided that I would put a little twist on Opera's favorite things and mix it in with those November everyday I am grateful for things that I have been guilty of making fun of a time or two.  I am going to post about something that I love (in no particular order) everyday, at least until Valentine's.  Hopefully I will be able to mix in a new post or two in the meantime.

The Pioneer Woman.  Oh, how I love her.  She cooks, blogs, homeschools her children, gardens and much more, those are just the items I find most amazing, particularly the cooking.  I am almost obsessed with her recipes at the moment.  Probably because after years of drooling over it I finally ordered her recipe book and the box with the Amazon smile on it finally arrived on my doorstep.  What a great day.  She has also just started doing a show on the Food Network.  My DVR is set and all of the episodes are locked, to avoid accidental deletion.  None of her recipes are low calorie or healthy, most of them are not real complicated, but boy are they tasty.  My favorite recipe at the moment is her chocolate sheet cake.  If you haven't tried it I highly suggest you do.

*Remember these items are in no particular order of importance.  I love you, Ree, but not more than my children!
