Because easy meals are a busy Mom’s best friend, this fall you’ll find me posting every now and again about my favorite finds that are not only super easy for me to prepare but that my entire family loves too. This week’s post features Beef and Bean Burritos from The Pioneer Woman. I’ve been in awe of Ree Drummond since meeting her in person at Blogher 2011. On the same connecting flight from Houston to San Diego, I was tweeting with some fellow bloggers just a tad star struck and admiring her amazing shoes. Ms. Drummond dmd me on Twitter and after the flight, I introduced myself at the luggage turnstile and she suggested we share a cab. She is incredibly gracious and just as friendly as she seems on her weekly Saturday morning show on the Food Network. Warm and seemingly very down to earth, we chatted our way to the hotel. She insisted on picking up the cab fare and the next year on the way to the airport at Blogher 2012, I did the same to pay forward the favor.
Ms. Drummond is a force of media nature with incredible success via The Pioneer Woman website, show, cookbook and I’m sure so much more. But even better, Ms. Drummond is a real Mom just like you and me. She just happens to be a phenomenal cook too! If we are home, my daughter and I watch The Pioneer Woman religiously and after seeing Ms. Drummond make these delicious Beef and Bean Burritos, I decided this was easy meals written all over it. Check it out…
My family loves Mexican food and this dish was not only delicious but filling, fun for the kids to help me cook, and definitely an easy meals winner. I find that catching up on the latest episodes of The Pioneer Woman on the weekend actually makes me want to cook. My daughter and I love her easy going demeanor, family focus, and most of all I love knowing that her recipes are kids tested too. Tell me…
