The Pioneer Woman

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Did you know I love her? Her cookbook is my go-to favorite when I want to eat something delicious (which is all the time of course). Our most recent favorite was her Chicken Pot Pie. (I couldn't find it on her website to give you a link, but this Leftover Turkey Pot Pie of her's looks pretty close).

We went back for seconds and thirds! We couldn't get enough. The pie crust (Perfect Pie Crust) is a little tricky to roll out. Maybe I'm just not used to pie crusts at all, but it took us a couple of tries to get it rolled out just right. Also it didn't help that we had to use a square pan. Oh well, it all tastes the same in the end! And since the recipe in the book makes two crusts, I made this again last night because we had not had enough!

As you can see, mine had a little too much liquid. Maybe it's the altitude we are at, but I have learned with a few of her other recipes as well that she adds too much liquid. Especially when it comes to heavy cream. So I've started using about half of what her recipes say. (Her creamy bacon cheese grits are another culprit). Has anyone else had this liquid problem with the Pioneer Woman's recipes?

P.S. I am substitute teaching for the first time today! Wish me luck!
