one day at a time

Hi, friends! I can’t believe summer’s coming to a close. In some ways, it feels like it lasted forever…in other ways, it has flown by. Ladd and I have had the busiest three months in recent memory, between his never-ending ranch work, my Pioneer Woman work, the kids being home, filming my cooking show and trying to figure out what’s to come this fall with work, high school, college and sports. Most parents I know are still firmly in “figuring out” mode, and I think we’ve all gotten better at taking things one day at a time. In the midst of all the busyness, I had an exciting development this summer: I got to completely relaunch my website! Many of you might remember that ThePioneerWoman.com is where all the fun began,…

talk to me!

What is your favorite fall dessert? —Collette Thomas, Uniondale, NY When I was in elementary school, the cafeteria regularly served a piece of pumpkin cake with a dollop of whipped cream on top. I was never more excited to be at school than when it was on the menu! Can you tell that I love, love, love pumpkin desserts? One of my favorites is my pumpkin gingersnap cheesecake. Putting pumpkin in my go-to cheesecake recipe was a no-brainer—and then I added caramel sauce to make it more sinful. I love changing the crust when I make cheesecake, so for this one I used gingersnaps, but a chocolate crust would be delicious, too! Find the recipe at thepioneerwoman.com. You’ve said before that you eat a lot of eggs. Do you have any chickens? —Megan N.…

away we go

Most of us haven’t traveled much lately, but I can’t help thinking of a trip I took last fall when I had to run—actually more like sprint—from one airport gate to the other to make it home that night. Luckily the wheels on my carry-on suitcase moved faster than I did! I kissed my bag, and the plane, when I made it onto my flight. All this to say: I know traveling isn’t always easy, but getting ready for a trip can be. Here are some packing tips for whenever you hit the road again. PHOTO: ALISON GOOTEE; STYLING: MIAKO KATOH.…

how the west was worn

I think I’ve only worn one shirt that could truly be considered Western, back in 2005, but I really do love old-fashioned Western shirts—the colors and designs, the tassels and frills. They’re absolutely gorgeous, and they make me think of some of my favorite people: Dolly Parton, Robert Redford, Randy Travis, George Strait (swoon)! We can thank Hollywood for turning these shirts into pieces of art: When Western movies took off in the 1920s, so did cowboy fashion, and tailors around the country started adding embellishments. The fun really started in the 1950s when country music stars put their own spin on the shirts, adding sequins, rhinestones and elaborate embroidery. Of course you won’t see these around the ranch. Ladd only owns a couple of Western shirts and they definitely…

a gallery of gallery walls

On the Grid This simple arrangement is clean and classic—and super easy to execute. • Start with the corners: Mark on the wall where you want your four corner frames to go and then work your way in. • Let the images breathe! Space pictures two to three inches apart to keep the group from looking cluttered. • Try this layout with a group of postcards, magazine covers or wallpaper samples. Grids work best when you have a collection of prints and photos in the same style and size. Mixed and Mismatched This “anything goes” wall is a great way to display all kinds of art, no matter the size, style or colors. • Control the chaos by anchoring the gallery with one large piece that can act as a focal point, like the “The End” print…
