Up till now I’ve posted on both, broadly similarly, but not always the same things, from now on though I’ll post everything on both. I know some folk gravitate towards one of the other.

Happy cooking 🙂

PW Mini Meatloaves and Roasted Broccolini




Mini meatloaves from The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Come and Get It by Ree Drummond. The recipe in the book is for turkey mince, I subbed in pork mince and it worked well. I need to try Ree’s meatloaf from her first book... one of these days. 


On the side is broccolini roasted with olive oil, seasoning and garlic, then spritzed with lemon before serving. This one is from the same book. I have really struggled with broccolini, and haven’t tried it for a few months. So this was really it’s last chance in my kitchen, and -hurray- it was delicious. Thank goodness I was willing to try it one last time! Which won’t be the last now I’ve found a way we like to eat it!

PW Thai Chicken Wraps

We had these Thai chicken wraps for supper, and they were very good. The marinade / sauce for both the chicken and the satay sauce are both just stir together numbers, so super easy. From The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Come and Get It by Ree Drummond.

Pioneer Woman Bean with Bacon Soup

 Ree Drummond’s Bean with bacon soup from The a Pioneer Woman Cooks, Come and Get It.  Weekend lunch is done! There may even be some for the freezer too. I loved the episode where she made this soup, Ree and Ladd are so cute 🙂 

It occurs to me now that you can’t actially see any beans in the pictures 🙈, but there is definitely a pound of them in there!

Ree Drummond’s Lemon Bars

 The weekend treat became a Tuesday bake kind of treat! Lemon bars from The Pioneer Woman Cooks Come and Get it by Ree Drummond. A shortbread sort of base then a lemony layer and topped with icing (confectioners) sugar. They fairly perked up our Tuesday. 🙂 🍋

Ree Drummond’s Marsala Mushroom Flatbreads

I forgot to take an after baking picture! 🙈 The two on the right are Ree Drummond’s Marsala mushroom, pesto and goats cheese naan flatbread ‘pizzas’ from The Pioneer Woman Cooks Come and Get It. The two on the left are my Caprese riff on them, for the non - mushroom eaters! I had one of the mushroom ones, delicious combo, fast too!
