A few weeks back, in early November, my friend Jennifer and I made a huge mess in my kitchen. Flour was everywhere as we embarked on a cinnamon roll escapade of sorts with The Pioneer Woman Cooks as our guide.
Our plan was to make a bunch to freeze for Christmas parties and such. Four batches later, and a light dusting of flour on every surface in a four mile radius, we completed the task.
And now that the Christmas season is upon us, the cinnamon rolls have come in mighty handy. And yum? Oh yes. Yum indeed. The Pioneer Woman knows a thing or two about cinnamon rolls. Not to mention some other tasty grub.
That book is somethin’ else.
And The Pioneer Woman Cooks is not just a cookbook. No sirree!
It’s got purty pictures of all sorts of animals and people, and stories all throughout to keep ya laughin’ and smilin’ for sure. It’s a real page turner.
Where else can you find a recipe for lasagna…
And cute hunky cowboy pictures too?
Ree, The Pioneer Woman, is nearing the end of her book signing tour for The Pioneer Woman Cooks, which has topped several bestseller lists. So in celebration of her successful book tour, (and ’cause she’s so sweet and generous), 10 copies (that’s 10, T-E-N) of The Pioneer Woman Cooks will be up for grabs.
(That would be ten separate winners.)
All you have to do to enter is answer a question.
In honor of the pioneer way and horses and horse poop and other horse things, here’s the question…
If you had a horse what would you name it and if you could ride it anywhere – anywhere on earth – where would that be?
Answer the question (only one entry per person) and you’ll be entered to win. You have until Wednesday, December 16 at Midnight PST. Winners will be announced Thursday, December 17 sometime after I get back from riding my nonexistent horse. Be sure to check back to see if you’ve won and if you did to claim your prize.
Merry Christmas everybody!
I do have a horse and her name is Zip Me Up Darlin, but I call her Pebbles. I would love to ride her in Wyoming or Montana on a cattle roundup.
Norma, I had this horse when she was a baby’; my daughter and I named her. Do you still have her? E-mail me at email@example.com
I always wanted a horse and, when I was little, I picked out the name Pegasus. We would ride the Argentinian pampas where we could look up, see nothing but sky and feel like we were flying.
I would name my horse Dude. And I’d love to ride along the California coast.
I would name my horse Flash, and hope that it was fast. I would ride it through the outback of Australia
In honor of my favorite cookie, and possibly food, I would name my horse Snickerdoodle and would want to ride her/him in as many state and national parks as possible; I hear the horseback riders get the best views.
I would name my horse Cinnamon. I would love to ride her on the beach-how about in Greece!
I need a new cookbook 🙂 My old ones are a liitle stained and used. The old cookbooks would welcome a newbie to the group 😉
I would name my horse “Tried and True” This is what the Lord says about that name in 2 Timothy 2:15: “Do your best to present yourself to God as a
tried-and-true worker who isn’t ashamed to teach the word of truth correctly.”
I would ride my horse to whatever destination or situation that the Lord led me to. Kinda like life, right? : )
I would name her Penelope and I’d ride her across that plain area from A Wrinkle in Time.
This brings back memories! I had a horse for almost 10 years – from before I was married to when my kids were little. He was a very handsome Arabian named Raja. The woman who owned him before had to give him up – they were both being mistreated by her horrible boyfriend. And so began the long road of rehabilitating my scared horse. I am really proud to say that after our many years together, he was offered a job as a therapy horse in a program for disabled children. Boy did he come a long way to be included in their program! I am so proud of him – he now gives rides and confidence to people whose lives he can change forever. (And now I need a tissue. I miss him!)
I would name it Mr. Ed (just because I think it would be funny) and ride it to school. I live in Texas, so that would fit the stereotype that everyone has 🙂
If I had a horse I would name it HELP LET ME OFF and I would ride it Nowhere! Seriously… I’ve only been on a horse once and that was on a field trip in the 3rd grade. My best friend and I wanted to ride next to each other on the trail and our teacher so kindly worked it out for us. The only problem? Our horses HATED each other and we were smack dab in the middle of the long line of classmates on a winding trail. SCARED me half to death and I’ve never been on a horse since. My daughter on the other hand absolutely adores horses and still dreams of owning one.
If I had a horse, I would name him Stormy, after the horse my daughter fell off of. And my daughter and I would ride together, anywhere he would take us! It’s our dream to have land and horses.
LOVE PW’s cookbook! I bought it for my sister for Christmas, but I’ve been using it like crazy! Hope it won’t be too stained when I give it to her 🙂
Made the cinnamon rolls yesterday, and they are AMAZING!!!!!! There are no words to describe the goodness in your mouth when you taste these!
My horse would be named Blaze and we would blaze a path down the beach.
I’d name it King (or Queen, if it’s a filly) of the Wind (always loved that book!)
I’d like to ride in New Zealand. Ever since The Lord of the Rings series was filmed, I’ve thought it’d be cool to visit there — such GORGEOUS scenery!
I would name her freedom, and I would ride her through the prairies from back in the day before cars, credit cards, and nuclear weapons. the simple life… ( yes I am time traveling too, since we are in make believe world I deem it okay )
If I had a horse, I would name it Misty because Misty of Chincoteague was one of my favorite books when I was a child. I wanted a horse so badly after reading that book. So of course, if I had one I would ride it on the beach in Chincoteague VA.
I want a horse! I would name it Buttercup and ride in the Grand Canyon.
If a had a horse, I’d name her Pansy and ride her into town to get some bubblegum.
If I had a horse, I would name my horse Charlie. Owning a horse would mean I lived somewhere with a large yard larger than my teeny, tiny yard.
I have truly never pondered this question, so I applaud you for your original idea. 🙂 I’m going to go with Penelope, riding on the beach in California somewhere.
