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!
If I had a horse, I would probably name it Beauty. I’ve never ridden a horse so I probably would stay in my yard because I bet it would be a very short first ride.
I’ve always wanted a white horse. I would name the horse Dream, and ride Dream back to the time when my mother and father were still alive.
I would name my horse Starlite after Rainbow Brite’s horse and I would ride it (on a rainbow of course) to Italy to eat pizza and pasta and tiramisu and then to Ireland to catch a leprechaun and get his pot o’ gold. Ok, I think I may have have had WAY too much caffeine today….
My horse would be an old nag and hence the name Lumpy and I would ride it on the beach right next to my beach cottage that exists only in my head!
I’d name my horse Afterglow, and we’d ride wherever she took me. Maybe we’d start somewhere in California and go East from there…
My horse would be named Midnight and I would ride it in the mountains of Colorado!
I would name my horse June and I’d take her (if I had a trailer) to CO to ride to the top of the mountians.
I actually did this at a Dude ranch in CO. But it would be more fun to have your own horse! 🙂
That’s what I’d do.
Thanks for the give-a-way!
So hoping to win!
You have A LOT of reading to do. Whoaaaaaaaaa lots of comments! Go you! “It’s your birthday, it’s your birthday….”
I’ll keep this simple since you have a lot to read:
I’d name her Shelby because I loooove that name. I think it’s the quintessential southern name. Since my husband won’t let me name a daughter this name, the name will be given to my horse that has a blonde mane and light brown fur with a few white patches to give it character. I would ride Shelby all around my parent’s property in Pauline, SC. I would have my family take turns riding on her with me so I can soak up that one on one time with each of them…. making a memory I could keep with me always.
I love PW and miss having horses! If I had a horse now, I would name him Harley and we would ge riding everywhere…all over the gravel roads clsoe to home here.
I would name my horse Smiley. I think a horse always has a smile on its face. I would ride it somewhere soft to help me when I fall. I guess that would be on the soft, white sand near clear, blue water. Nice comments!
Really hoping to win this time…… I would name my horse Sweetpea and we would ride through The Shire, being careful to steer clear of the hobbits of course. =)
I’m not really good at giving names but I think it would be Boomette in honor of my cat who passed away in 2007. I would ride my horse probably at the summer camp I go each summer.
My horse would Rashid. I’d ride him to Dubai 🙂
Well, I’ve never really wanted a horse, but I DO want a copy of PW COOKS, so…
I would name a horse Mocha (of course it would have to be a brown one) and I would ride it on the beach OR across the prairie!
Well, I have a horse, but if I had a better horse (a nice gentle & non-spitefu,short to to ground horse) I would ride it anywhere with my hubby (who is a farmer/rancher & oilfield consultant) and boys…probably to check cows…which is a great thing to do…I believe that T.Roosevelt said “The best thing for the inside of a man is the outside of a horse”…he was right. Thanks…mary
If I had a horse, I would name it…well, that’s actually a tough question because I would want to see it before finalizing a name! However, if I must decide now…I’ll say Bailey or Latte! Can you guess why I’d choose the 2nd name?!?!? 😉
I would love to ride her through the pineapple fields on Maui! I wonder if that would ever be possible?!?!? 😉 Ha, who knows!
If I ever had a horse, and that’s a pretty big if, I would name her Sunshine and we would ride together on the beaches of Oregon.
If I had a horse I would name her Penny and I would love to ride horseback with her through the Grand Canyon!
If I had a horse, I would have a palomino. I would name him Aureus or if it was a girl, I’d name her Havilah. I would take him into the redwood forests. It seems like a place to ride a horse.
I would name my horse Cowboy. It would be a beautiful Paint…and I would love riding on a sandy beach with the warmth of the sun upon us.
