so good

I think I might officially be the last person on earth to get the Pioneer Woman cookbook.  I bought it from Amazon and read it cover to cover the day it arrived.  It's a mix of witty writing and yummy recipes and some really amazing photos.

I think her blog is incredible and brilliant and it totally inspires me.  Her book is just as wonderful.  I made the Spicy Pulled Pork the other night {in CA we call that Carnitas}.  I read the recipe and I was like, "Hey, it's Carnitas!"

Let me just say...it was fantastic.  Mark and I sat there, completely stuffed, but totally wanting to go back to the kitchen for seconds.  It was so good we were still sneaking bites while cleaning up the kitchen.  Really.  It's that good.

And, it made a ton and tasted even better warmed up the next day.  You can find the recipe here.  If by any chance you don't already own this cookbook, treat yourself immediately!  It was worth every penny.




Also on my so good list...The Barefoot Contessa's Lemon Bars.

I recently inherited a gigantic amount of lemons and I made these amazing lemon bars.  I may or may not have eaten 3 in one day.  They taste like lemonade donuts.  Not only was this my the first time making lemon bars, but it was also the first time that I've ever eaten one!  I'm officially hooked.

That Ina, she gets me every time!  Mark got me her latest cookbook for Christmas, and I am super excited to make a few of those recipes also!

I love to cook and bake and I love to make things that make my boys happy.  Plus, I recently went to the doctor and learned that I am back to my pre Grant weight {yeehaw!}.  So, I have pretty much been stuffing my face ever since.  Game on!

What is on your 'so good' list right now?
