it’s finally fall!

I would like to officially declare that fall is my favorite season. Oh, believe me, spring runs a very close second. But there’s something about this time of year—when the long, hot summer draws to a close and school and work routines put our days back into a normal rhythm—that I find so calming and nice. (Even though our school year could be described as anything but calm!) When fall finally arrives, the trees explode with brilliant colors, sweaters show up in my closet again and there’s that buzzy anticipation of the holidays coming around the bend. And don’t get me started about the food! As our days become more structured, family weeknight dinners are the norm; we dive into things like chili, soups and stews. And what about all the…

talk to me!

What is your go-to comfort food? —Marci and Isabel Small, Metuchen, NJ I don’t think you can beat chicken potpie. You just can’t. That crisp golden crust and glorious gravy get me every time. Whenever I eat it, I’m transported back to childhood. My mom would make it from scratch (the recipe I use, at thepioneerwoman.com/pot-pie, is very close to hers), or heck, we’d have the frozen Swanson version! I didn’t care—either way was magical. Your skin looks great. What’s your secret? —Heather Woodard, St. Louis I don’t have any secrets—just a routine I’ve developed as the result of being a no-longer- 30-something redhead who can get a freckle just like that. I definitely don’t go in the sun. In the ’80s I was a poster child for tanning booths, and I learned my lesson.…

cookbook confessions!

’m late, ’m late! I usually start thinking about the theme of my next cookbook and making lists of recipes a year in advance. Not that this helps me deliver the goods on time! I’m always late. Always, always, always. And with each new cookbook, I’m even later than I was with the last one. My editor at HarperCollins, Cassie Jones Morgan, is great for me. She’s so good at putting on the pressure—and also letting me know it’s all going to be okay! Title time (thanks, guys!) I was really stumped on the title for this latest cookbook, so I put up a poll on my blog and asked for suggestions from everyone. I was pretty sure that “quick” and “easy” were going to end up in the title, but I had…

good eyes!

Ree’s 18-year-old daughter Paige is the spitting image of her mom—and she inherited Ree’s love of eyeliner, too. In fact, after years of practicing on friends—and on her mom—and watching how-to videos on Instagram, the home-schooled high school senior has become something of a makeup artist. Paige is partial to simple winged liner, but on the next page she shows us four different styles. All of them are easy to re-create— you just need a steady hand! Everyday eye Make this your go-to weekday look. Line your entire eye with a thin kohl or gel pencil in black, brown or gray, then gently smudge the line with a cotton swab or small eyeshadow brush. If you want an even softer look, use eyeshadow and an angled brush in place of liner, suggests Maybelline…
