Christmas Came Early!

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

I got home was dark and cold and I was tired and hungry. Poor poor me.

But what was that waiting for me on the kitchen counter? An unexpected package addressed to Leslie Jerkins!

And what was inside?

[The Pioneer Woman Cooks, here]

From my precious and dear friend Katie. I jumped up and down.

Then I jumped up and down a little more when I saw this:

Katie got to see Pioneer Woman at Book People in Austin for a book signing a few weeks ago. And she had this delightful surprise up her sleeve for me this whole time!

I did not go to sleep last night until I had looked at every page of this book---saw every photo, read every vingette. It's a fun cookbook that I can't wait to use.

Thank you, Katie. You are so dear to me. Merry Christmas!

[p.s. check out Katie's blog, eating as i go. she's starting up a cooking blog of her own!]


  1. Let me know what you think of it. I have mixed feelings about it. I love the photos, design, and vignettes. But overall I wish there were more new recipes (almost all are on her site).

    Thanks for the shout out! Cookie recipes coming soon.

  2. What an awesome surprise!

  3. JEALOUS! What a fabulous friend you have! PW's cookbook is on my Wish List, and I'm sure hoping Santa brings it to me on Friday!

  4. Yay! What a fun surprise! I'm hoping Santa makes a stop to my house with that lovely thing too!
