The Pioneer Woman Rocks!

If you haven't heard of Pioneer Woman, you have been living under a rock. She is everywhere these days -- even on Fox & Friends the other morning!

However, in the case that you don't know who she is, you definitely should. She is a great blogger who also happens to be a great cook, photographer, and homeschooler among other things.

I had a dinner party this past Friday night, and most of my recipes came from The Pioneer Woman Cooks, PW's recipe blog. All of the recipes were fabulous, so I thought I would share our menu and the links to PW's recipes so that you can make them, too!

(BTW, none of these recipes happen to be Weight Watcher friendly, and I am not sure that PW has any WW friendly recipes. So, if you are doing WW like me, steer clear of these recipes. I had an excuse this time -- my dinner party! No one wants to go to a low-fat dinner party, right?!?!)

Appetizers:
Warm french bread with goat cheese and fig preserves (no recipe)
Seasoned pecans (from a local cookbook -- I will get you that recipe later)
Salad:
I intended to do PW's Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing, but I ran out of time, so I just threw together a spinach salad of my own design.
Dinner:
Beef Tenderloin with Onion Blue Cheese Sauce
Green Beans
Dessert:
Ooh, I am getting hungry just thinking about all of that good food!!
The dinner party went really well, and everyone raved over the food -- all thanks to the Poineer Woman!
