You'll soon come to find that I am an avid Pioneer Woman follower. I love her. I love the life she portrays (can't say she lives, because everyone knows that as real as you may be on a blog, really, come on, we know life isn't always happy times and perfection...well maybe for the Pioneer Woman, I don't know heehee :-) ) My dream is to live out in the open with a beautiful house and property that I really don't have to leave unless I want to, to raise cattle & have wild horses running through my yard. And I wouldn't mind seeing my husband in Wranglers & chaps, riding a horse, roundin' up cattle, either. I LOVE it! I'm quite envious in a way. My boys would love it too. They all think they're cowboys anyway. My oldest is VERY upset that he grew out of his cowboy boots & clothes & I haven't gotten him new ones yet. Shame on me!
Anyway, the Pioneer Woman is wonderful. When it comes to food, I know I can ALWAYS count on her. She NEVER lets me down. There is NOTHING she has ever posted that I have tried that has been anything other than pure bliss. This recipe being one of them. Its SO good! I do have to admit that I forgot to get Gruyere cheese, so I used the Mozzarella I had on hand...tasted great, but definitely needed a little bit saltier of a cheese (hence the reason why Gruyere is perfect). For some reason I've always been scared of making onion soup. Don't really know why, I guess I just always figured it would take too long to make, but it was WAY easy. And it gets better as the days go by. We ate it a couple days in a row and each day it just got better and better! Mmm, makes my mouth water just thinking about it!
