Hey there, Ree ... it's me, Gretchen, I'm one of your faraway besties. The one that you don't really know, but would adore if you did. That's why I make it a habit to try out your recipes, because recipe theft is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
Over the last while I've whipped up six of your kitchen beauties. More to come! Don't be sad if you don't agree with their stardom; I have a picky family. Overall, you're the bombdotcom and I'm truly inspired by your kitchen prowess. If you ever want to invite me to the ranch, I'm only a flight away :)
Really smooth and truly like Mexi restaurant's salsa. Sadly, I heard, "too much cilantro" and "too tomato-y". Hello people, it's salsa! Whatevs. If you make this cut the recipe in half unless you want to eat salsa for every meal for a week.
Freakingamazingdeliciousness! That's Gretchen for "FEED ME MORE!" I have adopted this recipe as my main pasta dish for life. I adore the sauce and have mixed and matched a plethora of proteins and meats. Most common mix is yellow squash and caramelized onions with bacon and Parmesan sprinkled on top.
Pretty yummy. Sadly, I'm a sucker for chocolate chip, but for something different these were a good choice. After reading the comments which is such a brilliant thing to do when working on a new recipe I opted to bake these cookies for 18 minutes, use half the amount of salt and Crisco instead of butter.
Calorie free appetizer, why yes, oh yes! I ate so much I had to skip dinner. The only thing that would have perfected this spread + bread is a marinara dip.
Made it twice already - winner, winner! Dominic adores it and has dubbed it his new favorite dessert. A mixer (KitchenAid or hand) is a must to get the filling whipped to perfection. I've made it with both creamy and chunky PB and honestly can't decide which I like better. Give it a try and let me know what you prefer!
I splurged on vodka just for this recipe and was sad. I don't know if I did something wrong, but it had much too much of a vodka taste. Now, don't get me wrong, I like vodka, just not poured on my pasta.
Have you tried any Pioneer Woman recipes?
Share your faves ... I'm up for a round 2 of copycats!
