Went to another auction yesterday and as always buy recipe books.
This is from The Pioneer Woman Cookbook. I have never bought one hers before but this is called Recipes from an accidental country girl.
Really liked some of the recipes.
It's cool and raining today and this just called to me. Enjoy!
