Today’s post comes from Robyn at Add A Pinch – She is our most recent The Traveling Cookbook blogger. To follow the journey, visit HERE.
My friend Amy invited me to participate in a fun The Traveling Cookbook project and I couldn’t wait to hear more about it. In a few days, she sent The Pioneer Woman’s Cookbook to me all wrapped up in a handmade bag with ribbons and bows. I have to admit I was a bit awe struck just in the unwrapping of the book and seeing the cute and special inscriptions from Amy, as well as from Chris Ann and Kristin from The LoveFeast Table.
Now I have to tell ya, I knew just the recipes to make from Ree’s cookbook. A while back I’d tried her BBQ Jalapeno Poppers and just sat back and watched them disappear. Everyone loved them and kept asking me about them after they were all gone.
So, I knew when I made them again to just go ahead and triple the recipe for our get-together just like Ree tells you to do in her helpful hints.
Boy, was that a great decision!
I also knew that I would make Ree’s Olive Cheese Bread. Her bread recipe is great for making ahead in large quantities, wrapping tightly, and keeping in the freezer until you are ready to pop it in the oven to serve. I knew with Christmas and New Year’s fast approaching, having olive cheese bread prepped in the freezer would be a good thing.
A very good thing indeed!
So now the fun continues as The Traveling Cookbook is headed to the home of the very talented Wendy, from Wenderly. With her artistic and mad cooking skills, I just know she’ll have something remarkable to share!
I’m excited to watch the journey The Traveling Cookbook takes and know that the home it finally resides in will have a one of a kind cookbook indeed!
