After looking at her new book online, I knew that it had to be my next purchase. I brought the book home and immediately fell in l-o-v-e. The stories, the photography and the recipes all tell the tale of her transition from city life to ranch wife…and let me just say, what a wonderful tale that is. She has a knack for teaching people how to slow down, kick off your shoes (eh…boots, in her case) and enjoy great food with family and friends.
I might be surrounded by concrete and rowhouses now, but I haven’t always lived the big city life. Growing up, I lived on quite a bit of land with trees, horses and cows in our backyard. Some day, I know I will return to country life but for now I will live vicariously through Ree and her tales in The Pioneer Woman Cooks.
Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
You are going to love these pancakes. To quote my husband, “These are the best pancakes I have ever had. In fact, I don’t want you to make any other pancakes except for these from now on.” What a statement!
I can’t make any promises (I always have to try new recipes) but I know I will be making these time and time again in the future!
