it was amazing
bookshelves: cookbooks
Read from March 27 to April 10, 2012

I'm not the gourmet chef of the family. I'm the comfort food, "let's get it on the table so we can eat" chef. I was tired of cooking by the time I came across Ree Drummond's first cookbook, and she reawakened my love of cooking. This cookbook is as amazing as the first - but with more food, more recipes, more gorgeous colorful pictures of every single detail. My son has already tabbed every single recipe he wants me to cook - he is a teenager and this is unheard of, high praise from a teenage boy. Thanks again, Ree!

Sara After reading your comments, I had to run out and buy the cookbook! We have a bunch of huge carrots left over from Hal's garden last summer. Hal is Gary's brother. We donate money and he does all the work! Every once in awhile, Hal digs some up and brings them to us. Anyway, I noticed the yummy recipe for carrots in Ree's cookbook. Can't wait to try it!

Sydney Young Oh, I haven't seen that yet, I am almost to sides. Still going through it page by page. Zane went through and tabbed recipes for me to cook for him, which is high praise indeed, when a teenage boy will actually take the time to do that! I will have to check out that carrot recipe, too. Where do you store the carrots? I've recently been lamenting to my Gary that we need a root cellar. His response: "What is that?"

Sara Hal stores them in the ground until he is ready to dig them up. Then we store them in our fridge. So yummy sweet in stew! Also, our new neighbors trade us fresh farm eggs for some of our carrots! I love your story about Zane tabbing cute!
