♥ I may be a little late to the party, but I am LOVING Bakerella and her cake pops! How cute are these:
I'm cake pop obsessed! I can not wait to make more!!!! I need to find other people to eat them though!
♥ My newest crush is Ree Drummond (a.k.a. Pioneer Woman) AND her husband. While I've been a fan of her website for some time now, I never really paid too much attention to her blog portion. It was all about the recipes for me. I took out her cookbook from the library.
Holy Yum & Butter! Definitely not weight friendly, but fine for a once in a while meal. Or you can always "slim it down".
Then I read her new book:
I can totally relate to her. Well, not in the way that I live on a cattle ranch and get up at 4 a.m. and home school my kids way, but seriously, I do! I never planned to live in the mountains, in a town with 5 traffic lights... Oh, I mean 6, they just added one more. I am a city/town type of girl. I also love to cook and bake. The fact that there are deer, bear, chipmunks and turkeys using my backyard as a playground is crazy. I wouldn't change a thing though. And both P-Dub and I are very funny! HAHA!
Anyway, back to the book. This is a love story of how she met her now husband. Anyone that is a fan of hers knows that she marries him, I'm not ruining this for you, really, I'm not. The actual story is so sweet. I read it in about 4 hours. I had to keep going. I couldn't stop. When I finished, I wanted to hear more... so Ree, if you're reading this... write. more. books. You know, in your spare time ;-)
I've said this several times before and I'm sure I'll say it again and again. This book made me want to drive out to the ranch to hang with them and eat meat. I've been craving a nice juicy steak since finishing it!
Here's something I found out through my "investigating" of my two new faves... THEY ARE FRIENDS! They have gotten together for cake pop weekends! I WANT TO GO!!!!! INVITE ME!!!!!!
♥ Katy over at My Vegan Weight Loss posted a recipe a few weeks back about a sushi salad. It was from the book Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.
Like I said in my last post, I could never go vegan all the way. I love my Greek Yogurt and Eggs... and I like meat! But let me tell you a little something about these recipes... They are easy, delicious and low fat! Some of the side dishes sound amazing! There's a whole section on "Bowls" that will just knock your socks off. SO many great ideas!!!! I took it out of the library, it's on a 14 day loan. I HATE to have to give it back. I think I am either going to have to go scan crazy scanning in some pages or go buy this!
♥ And... my last new fave - Because I AM still a Jersey Girl, even if I live in the mountains...
Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in HOT PINK!!!! Oh how I love thee!!!! I got a sample in the mail, from Target. I am smitten with this lip gloss. It's the perfect pink, without being too Barbie-ish!
Of course, I went to purchase it and it was the only color sold out... I guess I'm not the only one who loves it!!!!
