Miranda Lambert obviously knows that the way to a man’s heart is straight through his belly! In this months edition of Good Housekeeping, Miranda shares her recipe for hubby Blake Shelton‘s favorite, “Peanut Butter Pie!“ Miranda also tells the magazine that she is following her Mama’s best advice, which is “Don’t change who you are for anybody!” So even though she could easily afford to to wear the finest and most expensive designer duds, she still prefers to shop for her clothes at Target & Forever 21, just like us ‘regular country girls!’ And we all know that country girls are known for their cooking too, so big thanks to Miranda for sharing her Peanut Butter Pie recipe that she says keeps Blake coming back for more….
