PW's Comfort Meatballs

It is HERE!!! I OWN it!!!!

I received my copy in the mail last week of the newly released cookbook by Pioneer Woman. If you have not seen her website or read her stories you are missing out. She is funny, hilarious and heart warming and I am addicted to her blog/wesbsite. I enjoy reading about her four punks and Marlboro Man and their life on the ranch. You have to read her love story from Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. She is currently on her book tour. I am excited she will be in Austin in December 3rd. I cannot wait to meet her and have her sign my cookbook!

My first recipe to cook this past weekend was Comfort Meatballs.... mmmmm good! They tasted like mini meatloaf-balls!!! You could change up the sauce, use a BBQ sauce to give them a different flavor. It is a true comfort food. I made PW's mashed potatoes to go with (which I will post another day). 

I plan on cooking everything in this cookbook I cannot wait to try it ALL!!! Coming soon - PW's Chocolate Sheet Cake!!
