What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I love this! I found your blog on the Siesta page this morning and when I clicked here and saw the first blog reference The Pioneer Woman....ahhhh! I made the cinnamon rolls this Christmas and LOVED them. Thank you for the smile. To have hearts connected by Siestaville and now The Pioneer woman......:-)

ME TOO!!!!
My cooking has improved 100% since I got the PW Cookbook.

My husband even bought me brand new (really nice) cookware for Christmas and said to me, " You can't be the Pioneer Woman with the crap we have" ha ha ha!!!!

Love your blog (I'm new)

Ohmygoodness! I know, I love Pioneer Woman! Haven't tried those cinnamon rolls yet, but have been wanting to. She has a few variations on her rolls online as well.

I literally just made her chicken and dumplings soup yesterday and it was ridiculously delicious (and easy). She just knows comfort food and is entertaining when I read her recipes.

Daisy

Her mashed potatoes are simply divine!! I love her breakfast dishes as well, and the cookbook itself is such a joy to look through.

Beth

You are the second blogger in 24 hours to post basically the exact same thing. :) I just put the cookbook on hold at the library (though I probably should just buy it) so I can prep for my hubby's return from Iraq next month.

Elizabeth

My husband would like to add his signature when Toben writes the letter! The chili and Betsy's Pasta are favorites around here. When I saw your post this weekend about the cinnamon rolls I did take a peak- may be making those this weekend! A friend of mine said the cookbook was "Life-Changing" when she told me to buy it. So True!

Amanda

You must also try the NOT so LOW fat Rosemary Potatoes and the Meatloaf. We are not meatloaf family but I figured anything wrapped in bacon had to be good and it will knock your socks off!!!!

Rachel

Well, I can tell that continuing to read your blog is going to present a problem (but I will continue to do it). The other day, I wasn't going to buy "Radical." I thought, I don't need another book and I'm not ready to be radical. Today after reading this blog, I thought I don't need another cookbook. So then I promptly went to the bookstore and bought the cookbook and "Radical." Oh my. =)

beki

Okay, you've convinced me, i need this book!

Amelia

I don't have the cookbook, but I have tried several recipes from her blog. The Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies and Spanish Green Beans are wonderful!!! I am going to have to get Radical!

Kim Feth

Started Radical this AM. I'm still pondering the first chapter. Wow! And I almost got the Pioneer Woman CB for Christmas (for myself). So, now I'm going to have to get it.
MMmmmm ... cinnamon rolls.

Be sure to try her cornbread. I made it this week and it's the best cornbread ever!

Can someone give me Ree Drummonds email address? I can not actually see it when I "click here" to email and it takes me to some wizard thing, Outlook I think it is. Crazy!

THANK YOU!
