It seemed like everyone I knew had the new Pioneer Women cookbook but me. So I had mentioned wanting to get the book to my friend susy and she said to order it from amazon.com...it's only $11.50 there. So I did. It has helped me get out of my cooking slump. For the past week I have been making the best dinners with homemade pies, rolls, yummy salads with homemade dressings. One of Steve's favorites is apple pie. Not that they are hard to make but I stress over trying to get it looking picture perfect so when I saw Pioneer Women's flat apple pie I knew it was for me. I used my grandma kiehl's pie crust recipe and my mom's/Pioneer Women's filling recipe....there were only two differences. All I had to do was roll out the pie crust, lay it on a cookie sheet, pour pie filling on top and fold up the edges...it was perfect tasting. Steve is always very nice...if I don't have dinner plans he always offers to pick up Subway or something on his way home from work. But, if I have a yummy home cooked dinner waiting there is a twinkle in his eye. Tonight's menu is Pioneer Women's Chicken-fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy.
