Dinner is always a hot topic at home. The children are always hungry. Not so long ago, I became trapped in a cycle of same old same old. The children would cringe with the answer. It became apparent that I needed to change. I needed to add variety. We needed something new.
About his this same time, I discovered “The Pioneer Woman”. My children rejoiced. In fact if my then 6 year old noticed I was cooking, he became immediately suspicious if he didn’t see a paper. He would almost panic and begin asking “Where’s the paper? Where’s the paper?” It took me minute to figure out what he was talking about, but then it clicked. He wanted a recipe in my hand. The Pioneer Woman was his savior and mom better not cook without her.
I have since branched out to other places and are all much happier with the variety. My now 7 year old has stamped his seal of approval on many new dishes.
