in the kitchen

Maybe its all this cold weather, {or that Mom bought me some kitchen redecorating things for Christmas--observe the smallness of this oven! but cute bird towels, right?} but I am surely in the mood to cook lately! And I'm tired of all my old fall-backs--in the winters it seems like I make chili, chicken-n-dumplins, some kind of pasta and some kind of soup at least once a week.

After browsing the Pioneer Woman website (which I usually don't browse, since I think she gives off this kind-of-faking-it air--is it just me?), I came across some recipes I'd like to try. Here's what will be happening in my little half-oven, closet-kitchen over the next week or so:

I'm also craving a few of B's family classics--
  • Breakfast Burritos (I could literally eat this everyday)
  • Poppy Seed Chicken (M's triumph)
  • Apple Dumplins (for the secretary's breakfast. and I cannot Wait to pull this recipe out! I tried some when we were at B's Aunt's house over Christmas, and it is one of the best things I've ever put in my  mouth!)
 And a few of my family's classics:
  • Dad's Steak w/ Sweet Potato Fries, Broccoli
  • K's Chicken Parmesan

That's whats on the menu! (& any comments with delicious recipes to share would be wel.come.)


  1. All of that sounds sooo good! I might try the chicken crescent rolls! And don't you just love sweet potato fries? I hadn't tried them, ever, until last year and they're my new favorite! MMM!

  2. i know! i can't wait to try it all--got to go grocery shopping this weekend ;) & sweet potato fries are Bryan and my favorite--we didn't discover them until we were in Boston, soo good!

  3. i think PW is kindof annoying as well, but she can cook, so.
    at my grocery store, they have chipolte sweet potato fries! OMGoodness. I cant get enough of them. (and it sounds like _you_ need to do the recipe posting!)

  4. yumm sounds so good...

    i can post up the family recipes, they aren't secret (or complicated). i will post them as i cook them =)
