As I ventured into the world of photography a few months ago, my friend Melinda recommended this website for some easy photography tips for beginners, The Pioneer Woman has quickly become one of my favourite blogs for photography, cooking and home and garden. It is not surprising that this blog was ranked one of Time magazine's top blogs of 2009. Her photography is inspiring, and she has a very down to earth manner of "talking" to the subscribers and visitors in her posts. I love that her recipes are simple dishes, that anyone can manage. I would describe it simply as mouthwatering comfort food.
