Don't Sweat It

“My mom was a wonderful cook — and still is! She struck a balance between comfort food and elegance, making things like seafood casseroles and scrumptious stuffed bell peppers. She always made cooking seem effortless, and she never sweated anything. When it comes to cooking, I want to be my mom when I grow up!” —Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
