It's an odd thing for me to find myself with an evening "off" as of late. I didn't have any transcription work tonite as the workload must be light with the upcoming holiday (for some reason hospitals don't get that much traffic during the hols) so I happily spent my time looking through my new cookbooks I got in the mail (thanks to my inlaws and a Barnes and Noble gift card).
I got The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl which turned out to be all I hoped for and more. There's recipes, oh yes, recipes, but also her lush and luscious photography and little side notes from Ree herself, which are always hilarious. Cannot wait to try out some of the new stuff in her book!
Also, I got How to be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking by Nigella Lawson. I heart her. I could look and listen to this woman for hours. She's funny, witty, self-effacing, and entirely too beautiful. She looks like a woman should look; she's not stick thin and she admits to sneaking snacks in the middle of the night. I heart her. I'm loving all the recipes so far and there's even a section for children's party's that I've gotten ideas for Sadie's party (woot!).
I've also been spending a lot of time with Posie Gets Cozy the last few days. Her blog is one of my secret and guilty pleasures. I covet her home and her beautiful sewing room. Her corgi and cat are adorable and funny as they love landing on her last crochet or sewing project. Her hubby is adorable and her look at life is refreshing.
That's just a little ditty from Chez Hez for today. Enjoy!!!
And here's a picture that makes me so happy for some reason (it's by artist Carl Larsson):
