The Pioneer Woman

The Pioneer WomanSome time ago we featured “The Pioneer Woman Cooks” as our Blog of the Week.

We often visit her site to check out what great recipes and stories she has in store. Ree now has a new website called “” and I have just come from reading about her Tomato-Basil Pizza, Two Ways: An Experiment. Both ways of making this pizza are very easy to make and very tasty to eat.

I really like her new website and I am sure you will as well.

Ree has a great way of writing which is entertaining and amusing. So why not get yourself a coffee and settle down to check out the recipes and all the other interesting stuff on

This weeks Blog of the Week is


I found this site through ‘Stumbleupon” and I am so glad I did.

Now here is a cooking blog with a difference. Firstly it is put together by François-Xavier (FX) who is a French-speaking Swiss man living on the shores of Lake Geneva, an hour from both France and Italy. Already I am totally jealous and intrigued. And secondly the recipes and articles are accompanied by great photos with full descriptions on how to achieve the desired result. 

I was captivated immediately by the intriguing banner and then my eye travelled down the page to all the interesting recipes and articles.

There are so many interesting recipes such as the Daube de beu saintongeaise or Beef with carrots or the Pumpkin Gnocchis, a recipe I must try as I have never been able to perfect this dish. For a refreshing yogurt salad try the Indian Raita

One article that I found to be very interesting, having lived on a farm where we killed our own meat was  about the killing of the pigs. This article may be disturbing to some and you are warned before reading it that there are graphic pictures of a pig being slaughtered in the Moldavian manner.

FXcuisine is a veritable feast for the senses.
