Hi, Valerie, that's interesting to know about the pictures because in the introduction the author talks about how she did her own photography and she amkes it sound like it's like maybe barely passable or something but I figured she's probably just being modest. She just seems like such an interesting person, her life definitely didn't go the way she had planned when she started out and she had to make a lot of adjustments to her ranch life. I'd heard other people comment about the pictures in that book, too. She writes well, too, so it's a fun read.

I downloaded Pioneer Woman Cooks and the fractions are irregular and not all the same at first glance. I can see it could be a problem for a speech reader. I have to say, I am stunned with the images in the daisy with images file. Often step-by-step pictures which would be VERY helpful for dyslexic cooks! This book looks really interesting as it weaves the author's life story amongst the recipes.

There are places where's no space betweens the comma and the next word and fractions do come through pretty strange at times but can figure them out.
