Do You Need One Terrific Cookbook To Help You In The Kitchen?

Sharing is caring!

Well, we found one! It’s Ree Drummond’s new cookbook THE PIONEER WOMAN COOKS DINNERTIME, and it’s fantastic. We’re trying one of her delicious recipes. Can you say Wonton Pumpkin Ravioli? Yum!

We’re all about books! So we decided to break out and try out a cookbook. I’m so glad we did.
Every few weeks my sister and I use the excuse that we have to go away and work on PBR. We’re perfect travel buddies, so it just makes sense to mix business with pleasure.

We work remotely, so sometimes it’s more fun to get together in person. We brainstorm, laugh a lot, and get tons of work done. I’m not going to lie; it’s mostly fun. We recently spent the weekend at our family ski house in Vermont. There’s just something about visiting the mountains that is so relaxing. We went hiking, shopping and cleared our heads in the crisp mountain air.
