July 15

I don’t know how many of you read The Pioneer Woman’s blog, but I have read it faithfully every day for over 2 years now.

I love her style of writing.

I love her photographs.

I love the fact that we are the same age. ~~You’d think that with all this loving going on, it might help me win one of her contests~~

I love most of her recipes.


Now don’t be hatin’ but I do not like her cinnamon rolls.   I have a much better recipe that I think is out. of. this. world. fabulous.   Her icing for them, however, I could eat with a spoon.

When she came up with this post about the wrong/right way of making cinnamon toast I had to laugh.

I have always made mine like approach #3.   That is how my mom made it for me.

I laughed out loud at her “right” way approach, because I would never….ever….make time to do it her way.


Until last night.

And Internet…she is right.   It is the best way to make cinnamon toast.

Dear PW,

I’m sorry I ever doubted you.


A true believer, who would love to win one of your contests

  1. Seriously! What’s with that? I’ve been reading her since the very early days – waaayyy before there were bazillions of comments. Do I win?! NOOOOO…

    Dang it all! We ought to come up with our own way to give away fabulous prizes and give them to each other, huh?! LOL!!!

    You gotta love Ree, though. She totally cracks me up. And we had the cinnamon toast debate here, too. We’ve got three styles of making it in our house – and everyone is convinced their way is right! I made them all read that post. It’s what a good mother would do, right?!

  2. I love PW, but I rarely read it anymore because, well, dial-up and lots of photos don’t go together well and I don’t have time/patience to wait for all of them. But I love her sense of humour. I read the cinnamon toast one and laughed because apparently I’ve been making it the wrong way too. Her way did sound very very good but I haven’t got around to trying it yet.

  3. I, too have always made it by the #3 method. I would love to be able to try the “right” method, but unfortunately I have learned it too late.

  4. I’ve NEVER HEARD of the #3 method! what on earth?! I have always had it #1 style–where the sugar gets all broily and crisp–but I can see how her way is kind of similar in spirit, and vanilla is always welcome in my life.

  5. Okay, I’ll have to check it out. Many of my favorite recipes started out as hers. ;>

    Say, what happened here? Things look very, very different.

  6. Oh, I love the new layout of your blog!! The recipes look better, too. I’m sure it took awile to change everything. You did a fantastic job.

    I will have to try out that cinnamon toast method. I saw that post before and basically ignored it, but now I that know you liked it, I will try it.

  7. The world is in caos, politicians are crooks, our nation is rapidly going socialist, nobody goes to church anymore, but, all is not lost! We NOW know the RIGHT way to make cinnamon toast! We gotta’ learn to keep things in perspective!

  8. I haven’t read PW for ages, so I went and read the post because I had to see how to properly cook cinnamon toast. We use approach #3 at my house. Now, her approach looks fascinatingly delicious, but it also looks like a lot of work. Too much work for this non-morning person. Maybe someday when I am feeling extra domestic I will try it. 🙂
