The Pioneer Woman Cooks Cookbook Giveaway x 3!

The Pioneer Woman Perfect Pie Crust Recipe plus a cookbook giveaway at dineanddish.net

  A flaky and tender pie crust recipe that uses both Crisco and Butter from The Pioneer Woman and a signed cookbook giveaway! I'd like to tell you a little story about two bloggers. Two bloggers who sat down at their respective computers 7 years ago and started their blogs. Two bloggers who love their dogs very much and both happen to have four kids. One blogger lives in the country. She has a little ranch in the middle of Oklahoma and likes to take pictures of her horses and cows. Over the past 7 years she has worked so hard and has built an entire empire out of her little blog. She has written something like 300 books (ok slight exaggeration), has her own awesome tv show on The Food Network, has an enormous fan base, and pretty much has become the Oprah of the blogging world. She somehow manages to be a great mom to 4 kids, work on the ranch, homeschool her children and keep up with 5 different and very entertaining sections of her blog. Many of you know and love her as The Pioneer Woman. The other blogger would be me. And, well. Hmmmm. Let's move on. … [Continue reading]

Healthiness {Recipe: Healthy 2 Bean Kale Soup}

Healthy 2 Bean Kale Soup from www.dineanddish.net

This recipe post is sponsored by Bush's Beans.  You can tell by the different soup recipes I've posted on Dine & Dish throughout the years that I turn to soup for comfort. My mentality has always been the creamier, the heartier, the cheesier, the better! Why waste time and calories on a "healthy" soup? Surely they don't taste as good as a big, steaming bowl of, let's say, baked potato soup? Then I met Sarah Jenks and started going through the Live More Weigh Less Mastery program, and began to really understand my not so great relationship with food. I'm discovering that the decisions I make every day with some of my less than stellar food choices are going to be really hard habits to break. But, I'm working on it...and with the artillery of information Sarah is sharing, I'm really starting to break through some life long barriers and am changing my relationship with food. Which brings me to this Healthy 2 Bean Kale Soup recipe. … [Continue reading]
