The Pioneer Woman

This summer, I was reading Melanie's blog and she mentioned she had been with The Pioneer Woman at her ranch. I didn't think much about it until she posted a photo of these cinnamon rolls. My mouth began to salivate and I knew I needed to find out more. Needless to say, I quickly fell in love with The Pioneer Woman's website and ALL of her many recipes. I made the cinnamon rolls and gave them out to different friends. They all called me later and proclaimed their new found love for me.

Needless to say, I'm baking those babies tomorrow to hand out as Christmas presents.

Ree's new cookbook came out last month and I quickly ordered it. She has been signing the cookbooks in various areas of the country and last night she made it to our neck of the woods.

My only wish is that we would have been the only ones there so we could have chatted with her the whole night instead of sharing her with 500* other people.

*Strictly a guess. More ideally would been 5,000 because of the crazy line... but I'm guessing between 500-600.

Anyway, it was a much needed girl's night out and I had a great time with great friends. Thanks Ree for coming to our neck of the woods! Hope you enjoyed my Punk's Christmas card!

Also... E and M both have better cameras than mine... hoping their photos are better!

thanks! I was trying to be creative enough to get on her website, haha. My friend that was with me made the big poster with her dog dreaming of Charlie did have her picture taken by Betsy so I think she may have made it :)

I just commented back on your blog but I just googled "Pioneer Woman Nashville" to see if anyone else blogged about Tuesday night. It was neat to read other peoples perspectives!

Ha! I think you were right in front of me in line-with the sign, right?! Isn't that crazy?

And her cinnamon rolls are to die for. I have a couple of pans of them on my counter right now! :)
