Fantastical Feature: Food From My Frontier

I happily showed off the day my copy of Food From My Frontier showed up - its arrival actually interrupted our dinner. I couldn't wait to look through it and start making things. It's bright and colorful and FULL of pictures from the ranch, which I absolutely love.

Some of the recipes in the cookbook are ones I have made and posted previously: French Toast with Berry Butter, Drip Beef {didn't blog}, Beef and Bean Burritos, and BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas. We made the Chicken & Noodles and even brought it to an FRG meeting, but unfortunately did not get a pictures of it. It was super good.

So now to share the other recipes I made from Food From My Frontier!!

Lemon Blueberry Pancakes - p.22
I've never been a big fan of lemon anything, but my husband loves lemon. I've been easing my way into it. My favorite combination has got to be lemon and blueberry. These were great pancakes! I used a sandwich cutter and make some of them into dinosaurs. :)

Basic Chicken Salad - p.50
This recipe I wanted to try and branch out from our normal lunch foods that the kids and I eat. I loved the almonds and the grapes in it. I was pleasantly surprised with how much flavor they had in them!

Chicken Parmesan - p.130
This is hands-down my favorite recipe that I've tried this year. It was unbelievably delicious. I ended up blogging this one. So so so good! Even if you don't like chicken parm, try it. I hated chicken parmesan until I tried Ree's recipe!

Ranch-Style Chicken - p.208
I wasn't too sure on this one. I'm not a huge fan of dijon mustard. It was good, but not my favorite.

Pan-Fried Kale - p.214
This was our first experience with kale and we loved it. It was very tasty :) It was also the perfect match for the Lemon Fettuccine that I'm in love with.

Corn Casserole with Peppers - p.222
We ate this as a side to steak one night, my husband has been begging for it ever since. It was creamy and there was a little bite to it. Very yummy!

Is it any surprise that this cookbook gets 5 utensils??
If you don't have this cookbook, go buy it immediately!!!

I am in LOVE with her chicken parm too! I made it after you sent me the link to her recipe & my family devoured it. The kids ask me to make it ALL the time now. It's a great dish to make like when you have company too, because it will blow their minds. I'm going to make it when my parents visit!
I can't wait to get my Pioneer Woman cookbook. Did you see that I won an autographed copy?! Even Marlboro Man signed it :) I almost cried because I didn't even know I won it & the girl had been emailing me & they all went to my junkmail. I was about an hour away from losing the prize but luckily I emailed her back in time. I would have been SO mad if I would have missed it! Can't wait to make some yummy stuff from it. Everything you made looks sooooo good....I'm drooling now.
