Popular blogger and cookbook author Drummond shares the story of her courtship and marriage to her husband, whom she refers to as Marlboro Man. Though Drummond grew up in Oklahoma, she never imagined she�d end up there for good. After four years of college in Los Angeles, Drummond was only making a pit stop home before moving to Chicago. A chance encounter with a devastatingly masculine cowboy in a local bar changes everything. Though several months elapse before Marlboro Man calls her, the spark between them ignites as soon as they start dating. A rancher with deep roots in the land he works, Marlboro Man isn�t going anywhere, which means Drummond has to decide whether, to be with him, she�s willing to give up her dream of moving to Chicago. By the time Marlboro Man proposes, the decision is made, and Drummond prepares to marry the love of her life and discover what being a rancher�s wife will entail. Charming and bright, Drummond�s story will be an inspiration to those who despair of finding old-fashioned, lasting love. --Kristine Huntley

1-5) Game night! Buffalo Chicken Bites with Blue Cheese Dip – p 28, Potato Skins – p 36, Grilled Corn Dip – p 34, and Eight Layer Dip – p42. These were all really good, but the Buffalo Chicken Bites were outstanding! We’re enthusiastic dippers, and still had half the blue cheese dip left over, so I *had to* make the chicken again the next night to use it up. ;) My 16 year old was eating the chicken pretty competitively, and finished half the platter herself, so I’ll probably just double the chicken next time instead of halving the dip. The kids had never tried potato skins before and loved them! I adore it when Ree drops in retro food we’ve all long forgotten about. She gives a bunch of variations to try that all look really fun, too. I’d like a little more color on them, so I’ll leave them in the oven a smidge more next time before the cheese step.
6) Valentine’s Day! Bacon-Wrapped Filet – p 76, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes – p 78, and Cheddar-Bacon Wedge Salad – p 80. This is divine. There’s three full heads of sweet roasted garlic in those potatoes. It was supposed to be a romantic dinner for two, but my kids thought it would be much better for four. Yum! –My steaks took a bit longer than the 3 minutes in the recipe to hit 130° (medium rare) on the thermometer.
7) Easter! Sigrid’s Carrot Cake – p 110. Delicious and fabulously moist! It’s one of those very retro casual bakes that make the holidays so much easier!
