Cookbook Club Review ~ The Pioneer Woman Cooks- A Year of Holidays
For these reviews, we are to make two of the recipes in the cookbook. Well I picked four and as these recipes went together I decided to write about all four of the recipes. Another great part of these reviews is that we are giving away one cookbook to you... So you get a chance to have this cookbook isn't that wonderful.
Black Eyed Pea Salsa and Salted Pita Wedges
I love black eyed peas, we have them often, so when I saw this recipe I knew that I had to make it. I cooked my black eyed peas instead of using canned but otherwise I made the recipe as written in the book. I only made half of the recipe as right now there is only me to eat all of this and half of the recipe makes lots of salsa. I was worried that I wouldn't like it too much because I am not a big fan of cilantro but it tasted delicious. The Pita Wedges complemented the salsa. I made my own pita but store bought pita would work well too. Both of these recipes I will be making often.
Coffee Granita and Salmon Scrambled Eggs
Now these two recipes are perfect for a Sunday brunch on a warm summer day, sitting on your sun porch. Doesn't that sound just wonderful? Well I didn't really eat them out on my sun porch as the mornings here aren't so warm but both of these recipes are wonderful. I did find that the granita was a little too sweet and the next time I make the granita I would use a little less sugar. The Salmon Scrambled Egg is made with smoked salmon and it tasted wonderfully. Another winner in my books.
