My favorite thing about springtime is the sights that you get to see. It feels like freedom after being pent-up in the house all winter. I tend to get into reading a lot when the warmer weather comes around. I’m just super unmotivated to peel open the pages of a book during the colder months.
Any way, We are back to our slow days after a lengthy hiatus from them with moving and holidays. One thing that really helps me to slow down is getting to relax outside amidst the green willows and the warmer air with a good cook book. Skimming the pages and the picturesque tutorials that make the pages come alive. Oh how that makes my heart-strings turn!
Ree Drummond is one of my favorite people. Her recipe’s are always to tastefully done yet simple. My Kid Hero loves curling up on the couch to watch an episode or two. We eat a more gourmet type of lifestyle and Ree always helps me bring that steakhouse charm to my little ole country life. I like to lighten things up a bit during the summer months and there are some good recipes not found online in Ree’s book.
Another thing I love to do in my spare time is bake. My hubby would say baking is my thing. It’s most like a stress reliever of the sorts- because what bowl of warm, gooey, sweet goodness doesn’t make life better? Don’t answer that.
Cook books make me happy. And in this season of life they are my slow place. They allow me to take a breath where I sometimes can’t seem to find one. So this is what I’m up to lately in the book world.
How about you? Who’s your favorite food network cook?
