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...

If you don't have her cookbook yet (and you might be one of only a few, as it was the largest pre-seller in Amazon history!), here is what it looks like...

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)!

Take the plunge. Become part of the paparazzi. Still so jealous I wasn't there.

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

Real dress on Left~ Back-up on the Right Here are the sketches of the back-up dress

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
