Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

When I Grow Up I Want To be A Pioneer Woman!

This book has become one of my most favorite Christmas gifts! I think I may have already blogged about it....which confirms how much I love this book! Thanks, Mom and Dad!

I learned how to make a fantastic breakfast burrito....from scratch:
Check Spelling

The BEST chili ever! My man swooned!


Delicious rosemary rolls. (I found these on her website, not the cookbook and modified them a little bit). The smell of rosemary permeates every room of our home with delight:

I made these to take to my mother-in-law's house for Christmas dinner. She is a superb caterer so I'm always a bit less-than-confident about my mere offerings for dinner, but they all loved these and I was so relieved...nothing like trying out a new recipe at someone else's house!



I've made PW's delicious homemade cinnamon rolls for the last 2 Christmases; the recipe is on her blog. I even tried the orange marmalade rolls this year and they were just as delicious!

Oh, don't get me started on her crash hot potatoes...yum!!!
PW's Cookbook may be the only cookbook that I may actually use from cover to cover! It is fantastic! If you haven't tried any of her recipes, check out her blog where she lists many for free. I'm making her homemade salsa and guacamole this afternoon (please, go get the guacamole recipe now!!!).

Her photography is beautiful and her dishes are always divine. Yes, when I grow up, I want to be a Pioneer Woman!
Do you have a favorite PW recipe? So, come on...share it!

OK...this may surprise you...I've only recently found Pioneer Woman (and it just might have been from following a link on your blog!) Be still my heart! I think I want to try every recipe you've shared here. I visited her blog a couple of weekends ago and just swooned! Thanks for the tips. I love trying new recipes! Can't wait to try these! Happy weekend!
