Ever since attending Boot & Hearts last summer I’m slowly seeing how enticing country living is. I love the city but every now and then unplugging for a weekend of fresh air is warmly welcome.
Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond) describes herself as an ‘accidental country girl’ in the opening of her food network show. Along with her her show, she runs a cattle ranch, blog, family, and businesses in town. Quite admire how well she keeps everything together without missing a beat.
Some of her quick recipes are truly quick, easy, and delicious. Working stationary all day, I can’t eat like her cowboys do, and find making substitutions for healthier ingredients and portions in recipes a simple task that doesn’t affect overall flavour.
One trend you may begin to notice with me is I like to be prepared and organized. Check out her crockpot recipes or freezer favourites – they’re great for those nights you don’t want to cook.
My absolute favourite recipe of Pioneer Womens for when I need comfort food – Chicken Mozzarella Pasta.
See you tomorrow,
