just in time for bikini season...

...i have discovered the pioneer woman.  this is a major issue. after two straight days of being busted at work for reading recipe after recipe after recipe, i just went ahead and bought her cookbook.   my thighs now hate me.

so far, i have made the buttered rosemary rollsthe olive cheese bread.  and the pan-friend rib-eye steak.  and i have designs on the cinnamon rolls, the chocolate sheet cake, and these little nuggets of perfection.  i'm justifying the sheet cake by making it for our monthly office birthday celebration.  the rosemary rolls and the rib-eye steak were for the boy, and as a college athletic coach, he needs to have a full tummy.  i'm working on the bullsh*t excuses for the cinnamon rolls and the jalapeno poppers, but honestly, i'll eat them anyways.

y'all, this is bad.  i have to be in a bathing suit in exactly one month.  help me overcome my addiction!

I have heard great things about PW...but, scared to get her cookbook. I would put on 5 lbs just from looking at the pictures!

Haha cooking is great for weight loss (I admire those who can cook.. I fail almost always). You just need to know where to adjust the ingredients. Applesauce instead of butter, egg whites instead of the full egg, olive oil (but not too much)... I am sure you know the drill.

Happy Cooking! Feel free to send me samples :-) New England doesn't like bathing suit season much... maybe a solid couple weeks in July.

I own her cookbook. It's so good. The chocolate sheet cake?? Yeah, that sucker didn't stand a chance in our home. ;)
