Back in the kitchen again...

I haven't felt like cooking, since early in my pregnancy. Bless Alex's heart. He has been living on take-out for a while. I've just now wanted to start cooking again. So for the past three days - I have!

I *heart* Pioneer Woman's blog. Not only is she down-right hilarious....girl can cook! It was our week to host home group last night, so I wanted to fix something that I hadn't made before. I found the recipe for the steak & potatoes on PW's blog. If you don't already read her blog - check her out. You will love her. :)

We started off with a yummy spinach salad...





Then we had PW's steak tips w/brown butter...they were so good. My hubby actually cooked these for us! He followed the recipe perfectly and did a fantabulous job. :)



And what is steak without potatoes!? These are called crash potatoes. Thank you, Pioneer Woman. For changing my life.




And we ended the meal with my good friend, Vickie's favorite...banana pudding!




It was a yummy meal with some of my favorite people.

Grab the recipes from PW's site...you'll love 'em!

Love,

I need to follow her. I used to periodically check her out before I had a blogger account. She does my kind of cooking. I'm not into fake ingredients or low fat. I'm all about REAL ingredients. Just eat less of it if it's a problem!
Both of those things look fabulous.
