I Think She Liked IT!!!

I’m not 100% sure, but I think Hopie likes chocolate pudding!   :-)


On a very sad note, I found out that very good friend of mine from high school lost her battle with breast cancer.   I am just in shock and so sad over this news.   We had lost touch in the last couple of years but I’ve thought of her often and am very saddened by the news.

On a much lighter note – if you’re looking for a gift for someone this holiday season (and you’ll have to think of something else for me because I already have this :-) ) I highly, highly, highly recommend this cookbook:


I pre-ordered it from Amazon (click link to go directly to it!) and it graced my mailbox the other day.  I sat down and read it from cover to cover!!!   I absolutely LOVE  The Pioneer Woman anyway and have made many of her recipes.  I love (and appreciate) the step by step instructions and pictures that she provides with each recipe.   I actually make my Thanksgiving turkey using her method/recipe  - tried it a couple of years ago and will never ever make a turkey any other way.   I’ve already made two other recipes from this cookbook and they are wonderful.  Be warned – she is not a low-fat cook – that’s what makes it all so good!!    Perfect item in time for the holidays!

I'm in prayer for your friend's family. Cancer is such a cruel disease, robbing so many precious ones from families!

Oh, and I'm with you on loving PW and her cooking! I have her on my RSS feed and can't tell you the number of days she's saved my family from frozen pizza for dinner! And I totally lucked out as I won a copy of her book on a giveaway. I can't wait for it to arrive!

Oh, and how did I miss commenting on Hope? Oh my word, what a cute little mess!

So sorry to hear about your friend passing. Cancer is such an evil plague.

I think I may be one of the only people who doesn't read PW. Guess I better go check it out. :)

Those are some big beautiful eyes behind all that chocolate.
