Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Warning: This Post Could Be Hazardous To Your Health

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on August 16, 2011 ][ In Diet Tips and Better Eating Ideas ]

I want to share a link to another blog today but I warn you, this blog could be hazardous to your health.  Ree Drummond is an interesting woman who married the love of her life and moved to the middle of nowhere to be with him.  She began blogging to keep up with the friends and family she left behind but she soon developed quite a following.   To pass the time and feed her four children, she also went to work in the kitchen in a big way.  Now she has at least one cookbook out and another on the way and has appeared on such shows as Good Morning America.  Soon she will have a Saturday morning show on Food Network.

Ree is a fine cook but she never met a stick of butter or a cup of sugar she didn’t add to whatever she was making.  To use some of her own words, she is a very, very, bad, naughty girl.  I find coffee undrinkable but she has a recipe for iced coffee that makes me want to whip up a batch.  I couldn’t bring myself to make her positively sinful Milky Way cake this weekend with the eight Milky Way bars in it.  In other words, we are pretty much polar opposites.  Still, being the foodie I am, I have been willing to try some of her recipes and found them to be good.  Last night, I made her meatball sliders.  They were a huge hit and super easy to whip up; just right for a school night.

I encourage my readers to check out her site.  She writes about life on a cattle farm, her children, farm animals and more.  She has a section of beautiful photography, hers and others.  And then there are the recipes, conveniently divided into sections such as dessert, breads, cowboy food and cowgirl food and filled with helpful photos.  You could just lick the screen looking at some of her food.  However, don’t say I didn’t warn you if your diet is wrecked.  You need some self control in looking at this site and you probably need make no more than one of her recipes a week, or even a month.  I plan to make the peach-whiskey barbecue chicken this weekend.  Sounds too good not to.

Check her out at thepioneerwoman.com and keep an eye out for her new show.  But don’t say I didn’t warn you several times!
