When I mentioned I wanted to get Pioneer Woman’s new cookbook, so that I could be a crazed fan and go to her book signing, what did Eric do… surprise me with the book.
Then today I was catching up on my blog reading and I saw on the food blog Taste and Tell that I had won a contest that Deborah (the author of Taste and Tell) was having for Emeril’s new cookbook Emeril 20-40-60! When she made the announcement on her blog as picking me as the winner she even gave a shout out that it was my birthday! Thanks Deborah!
OK, enough about me lets talk food! Since Thanksgiving is a week away I decided that I would post a recipe each day this week that might help you on T-day! Nothin’ too fancy maybe just some smashed taters, or an apple pie, or some cute Turkey cookies. I hope (remember I said hope not I promise) to post a different Thanksgiving themed or related recipe every day leading up to the big day, so gobble them up.
The first recipe(s) I chose to feature are mashed potato recipes. I have only been writing this blog since March and have already posted three mashed potato recipes. One is my all time favorite mashed potato recipe (but of course I have to say that because they are Eric’s world famous mashed potatoes), another is my own recipe for ‘loaded’ mashed potatoes (I am also partial to this recipe too!) with cream cheese, bacon, sour cream, and herbs, and the last one is from Rachael Ray. All are easy, taste great, and would be perfect soaking up some homemade (or store bought, whatever floats your gravy boat, hehe) gravy!
