Miranda Lambert on Cover of Good Housekeeping Magazine, Shares Recipe for Peanut Butter Pie
She talks about her childhood, her journey to becoming Blake Shelton’s wife and she even shares Blake’s favorite pie recipe in the latest issue.
You may be surprised to find out Miranda is just like everyone else. She ‘shops for clothes at Target and Forever 21 and buys makeup at Walgreens.’ When she’s not on the road touring, she like to spend time with Blake and time in the kitchen, cooking. Miranda shared Blake’s favorite recipe, peanut butter pie. It sounds so good I think I’ll give it a try.=
