There are few things I love more than flipping through a beautifully complied cookbook. The sense of possibilities is almost overwhelming. I picked up the the Pioneer Woman’s newest cookbook this week and am so excited to try a couple new recipes from it. It is one of the most beautiful and fun cookbooks I’ve seen, full of photos and yummy, approachable recipes.

With most food I cook, I see a recipe as the guidelines and within those guidelines there is a great deal of room for creativity. I think soups and stews are the perfect place to start playing around with your creative side. Use the recipe I linked above as your guideline and add from there. Maybe a little red wine? Perhaps you like wild rice in your stew. Taste, add, adjust, repeat. And most importantly, have fun.
