I am not sure if you have met the Pioneer Woman. I must admit that I have a bit of a hero-worship problem regarding her amazing blog. It may be because she cooks deliciously, takes great pictures and lives on a ranch. (The first two things I really want to do, the last is just romanticised in my head.) She also home schools and gives away fantastic goodies - if you are into that sort of thing.
Regardless, if you need a yummy, man friendly, fattening treat (and something that is incredibly similar to those evil "onion strings" at Famous Dave's) You have gotta try her recipe. Don't blame me if your cholesterol shoots up after you make a few (hundred) batches of these golden yummies, blame the PW.
