Reese is Ree, craft night, root beers, doing something sweet and more
--The Pioneer Woman's story is headed to the big screen, with Reese Witherspoon in the starring role. Yeah, we can see that. When she arrived at USC, Ree Drummond thought she'd left small-town living, planning on a big-city career in Chicago. But then a cowboy happened. Which was good for us, because then the Pioneer Woman blog happened. And the bestselling cookbook. And crash hot potatoes.
--Check out this root beer recipe that packs a potent punch: Definitely for the 21-and-older set.
--Jealous. I want this life: How about a regular craft night with friends, lemon curd optional?
--While everyone else was going on and on about green beer and Irish soda bread on St. Patrick's Day, Steph was writing about clever ways to fend off sugar cravings at her Noshtopia blog, which manages to write about dieting without ever making you feel guilty. (Twip of the day -- follow her always fun feed @noshtopia.)
