I've recently been addicted to watching The Pioneer Woman, for which the first season is on Netflix.
It isn't easy for me to get into cooking/food shows unless they have some sort of competitive notion (Top Chef) or some sort of specialty focus (Cupcake Wars, Sweet Genius, Cake Boss - see a theme there?). I will occasionally watch Nightmare Kitchens, but it's more of something that I'll watch when nothing else is on.
All that being said, while perusing Netflix's reality tv genre for a new and interesting show, I stumbled upon The Pioneer Woman and decided to watch it based on the description mentioning her being a blogger. No way! Someone blogged about food got her own tv show? I had to watch. Maybe get some tips or inspiration about how to be successful too.
And I see why people love her show. She's the neighbor you'd love to have living next door - so inviting and just a genuinely nice person...and...all that yummy food! I'd invite myself over to her house every day. ;-)
All that delicious looking food...and butter, vanilla, and whole milk. I believe that should be her mantra, quite honestly, haha. It's also probably not a show you should watch if you are on a diet, as it can make you crave all sorts of yummy looking foods. If you must eat something to help you feel better, I recommend a spoonful of peanut butter to curb your sweet tooth, or a handful of salted nuts for your salt tooth so that you don't run off and make a random chocolate cake just because Ree did.
You can watch recipe snippets here on the Food Network, if you are interested. Watch at your own risk. hehe
