This recipe requires you to make the Pioneer Woman’s burgundy mushrooms at some point. To say that they are amazing is an understatement. So much flavor and a perfect side dish for almost any meal. They require a full 9+ hours of cooking, so I threw mine in a crockpot and they turned out fabulous. And we had tons leftover, so this was my first …

Since I was such a slacker last week, I went on recipe overload this week. On Sunday, I went to a super amazing store in OKC that is full of exotic, delicious, and CHEAP food called Super Cao Nguyen. Go, if you live in OKC, it’s quite the experience. Anyway, I found some naan, which I love, for a WAY better price than our grocery …

I fell behind on my menu recaps for one week. The only thing I cooked the first week of the year was chili. So there really wasn’t anything to “recap” – I did share the recipe so that counts right? I also “cooked” a pie last week, that I shared with you on Monday: PDub’s Mocha Silk Pie. We did make it out for dinner …

I love Indian food and earlier this year I got brave enough to attempt to make it at home. And it actually turned out great. Better than great. So good that when I hosted another girls’ night, people requested Indian food. So I decided to attempt this slow-cooker chicken tikka masala. And it was so good that after said girls’ night, a friend has since …

This is a recipe that the Pioneer Woman featured on her new Food Network show this past weekend. I know, you guys have never heard me go on and on (and on) about the Pioneer Woman. I have not tried all of her recipes and I do not recommend them constantly. I was not the most excited person in America to find out she had …

Okay I know you guys probably think that I only make Pioneer Woman recipes. Partly true. The other part of that story is that every time I make one of her recipes it turns out to be delicious. A success. A keeper recipe. Thus, I share it. So maybe it seems like I only use her as a source, but trust me, I DO branch …

Full disclosure – this is a Pioneer Woman tried and true recipe, I’m just sharing with you my experience (and the messy kitchen pictures to prove it).

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a breakfast lover OR a baker, so you can imagine my …
