Here are some additional pictures that Courtney took from Tuesday night with The Pioneer Woman...
Abby & Me standing in line...well, really sitting in line at this point of the night
The Lady of the Hour(s) and me...
She isn't only known for her cooking, but also photography, so it is filled with really great photos. It probably has more photos than you have EVER seen in a cookbook. Not just the food, but about her life on the ranch.
The personalization for me (we were talking and she almost spelled my name wrong, so I got an extra smiley)
If you aren't the most skilled cook, then this is the cookbook for you. I think it is really pretty, but it is fairly basic "southern" type cooking and she does things very similar to the way I already do them. One of the other great things about her recipes if you aren't the gourmet chef is that she details them step by step in photographs (so you can see what it is suppose to look like). Finally, because she lives in podunk Oklahoma, she doesn't have access to a gourmet grocery store. You can get the required ingredients in ANY grocery.
Finally, I have to say that I have a bad case of the Digital SLR envy right now. So many folks had there fancy schmancy cameras on Tuesday night and it did nothing but fuel my itch for one. Then I also used Courtney's and felt like a member of the paparazzi, so I was sold! I'm wondering if Lola might have gotten herself a job so that she can shell out the $700 for a camera and extra lens for me for Christmas? The fast snapping abilities would be very helpful in taking great puppy photos! Well shoot! I just realized I should have used that angle to sell it to my Mom as a Christmas present for me...better abilities to take photos of her little Milly! Oh well, maybe next year (you can see I seriously doubt Lola will come through)!
