If you love cooking blogs this post will not give you anymore information than you already know, probably. But if you aren’t so astute in finding good cooking blogs then read on. What do you get when you add a former city girl, who falls in love with a cowboy, moves to a ranch, has kids and home-schools? You get a very unique person and a great blog called The Pioneer Woman. Ree Drummond shows that blogging perseverance, a love of food, photography, combined with an interesting perspective creates reading necessity. Her blog is for everyone, the foodie, photographer, home renovator, home-school teacher, gardener and general lover of life. The Pioneer Woman is a pioneer. Who knew all those different interests could make such a great, informative and aesthetically pleasing blog. It makes me want to leave city life every time I visit The Pioneer Woman.

I don’t know about you, but every holiday morning is the exact same for me. I get up, excited about early holiday dinner. But I’m at a complete loss for what I’ll have for breakfast. The breakfast can’t be too light, so I can be satisfied. It also cannot be too heavy, so I can participate in a Spanx worthy meal. So either I have nothing for breakfast or the same old, which seems so dull given it’s a holiday. I mean, shouldn’t every holiday meal be something special. I say: “Yes!” this year. Therefore, this Christmas I’m going to do something different. I’m going to make a Christmas breakfast that is not what I normally eat. Christmas isn’t like any other day, and neither should any of my meals that day either. Here is the caveat. It has to be filling enough, special enough, and easy enough to whip up and eat. I believe Saveur’s Christmas breakfast Souffle (and all their other Christmas breakfast meals fit the bill (mostly…some are intricate). It’s special, guaranteed to be good (I mean it’s from Saveur, I love them), and quick! Click the picture to go to the recipe and see the other Christmas breakfasts. So this is my plan, a special Christmas breakfast to go with a special Christmas dinner. Now, what are your holiday breakfast plans?
I think I’ve said this in a previous post, but I’m toying with becoming a vegan. Better health is on the horizon for me & all of us…especially given the fact that the government has recently said that 72% of Americans are clinically obese. Yikes! I have to admit I stumbled on to this vegan blog extraordinaire via twitter. I followed the tweets first (@lunchboxbunch) that then led me to the blog. Everything about the blogstress Kathy Patalsky is happy! The tweets, the blog…must be because of the food. If you were afraid of being a vegan and thinking what on earth appetizing could I eat on a daily basis, visit Kathy. She makes all the food look absolutely delicious (and I venture to say it is not just because of her photography skills). It’s just good food. Lunchboxbunch now has a permanent place in our dinner regimen (especially since I’ve gotten my meat-eating husband to go vegetarian or pescetarian 6 days out of the week-his veganism is coming, as is mine!!!) So here is the secret to happiness. Good food made by, served, & tweeted about at lunchboxbunch.
