I was browsing the cookbook section of the Chicago Public Library last week and I saw Pioneer Woman's new cookbook. Now I have been known to read her blog once or twice - her photos are gorgeous; plus it seems as if everyone in the blogosphere world reads her blog. So I checked out the cookbook.
Overall impression? meh. Some nice photos and it reads like fiction and a cookbook. The recipes though...? Some seem OK. Most are just uninspiring to me. I wanted more garden fresh recipes. Fresh ingredients were sorely lacking.
I'm glad the public library owns it and not me.
I've gotten tons of inspiration from Heidi Swanson and her 101 cookbooks site recently. Thanks to my friend H.C. at CFC for turning me on to this site.
