My name is Ree. I’m a desperate housewife. I live in the country. I channel Lucille Ball, Scarlett O’Hara, and Ethel Merman. Welcome to my frontier!
Paula Deen meets Erma Bombeck in this spirited, homespun cookbook, which colorfully traces one woman’s transition from city life to ranch wife through recipes, photos, and pithy commentary based on the author’s popular, award-winning blog.
The Pioneer Woman Cooks takes readers on a voyeuristic journey through the life of a girl who once believed a Grande Latte from Starbucks was the key to all happiness but who ultimately finds her bliss in the arms of a cattle rancher.
Breaking free from a dead-end relationship, Ree Drummond left Los Angeles and made a pit stop at home in Oklahoma on the way to a new life in Chicago. It was there she met “Marlboro Man,” a fourth-generation cattle rancher with steely blue eyes and a muscular work-honed body. Drummond fell hard and fast, and suddenly she was married, living on his ranch in the middle of nowhere, and managing a brood of four young children (also known as “ranch hands”).
In her folksy, wonderfully engaging voice, Drummond shares how she learned to cope with the isolation and peculiarities of ranch life, from chasing beavers out of the pond and saddling horses, to cooking for a man who believes the sun rises and sets in a steak and baked potato. Using only simple and widely available ingredients, Drummond shares many of her satisfying and delicious recipes--both for cowboys and cowgirls--including Cowboy Calzones, Pioneer Woman’s Ribeye Steaks, Cheese Grits, fresh Blackberry Cobbler, Pico de Gallo, and Iny’s Prune Cake.
Bursting with the colors and flavors of country life and peppered with her wonderful homespun stories, The Pioneer Woman Cooks encourages even the most harried urban cook to slow down, relish the joys of family, nature, and great food, and keep it real.
I bought this as a gift for my wife who has followed the authors blogs for several years. She loves the book we have given one as a gift to a newlywed couple. It has some great recipes that the whole family has enjoyed
I don't know if I've EVER enjoyed reading a cookbook so much! This cookbook was so much fun to read. Each recipe has beautiful pictures and I absolutely loved reading her stories. It has such a personal feel to it that made me feel welcome. I couldn't wait to start trying her recipes. My family and friends have loved the recipes that I've tried so far and we look forward to more! Well done, Ree!
Love the show and recipes. Aside from receiving the book totally drenched in rain, I might suggest wrapping all cookbooks in plastic, as you don't know what kind of weather it will be delivered in and possibly be sitting in inclimate weather as mine was.
I haven't tried anything in the cook book that I haven't liked
As always the price and the product along with the ease of finding and paying for what we want has been great and we expected no less. George and Carol
I take every chance I can to watch her. I have tried most of her recipes and love them all. Just a good everyday cook. Thanks again.
I love the way this book is written. Wish all cookbooks were so friendly. can't wait to try the recipes.
great book, will be waiting for more of her books.
I love The Pioneer Woman's receipes and her way to simplify cooking. She shows all the steps and uses common ingredients to make a delicious dish. I have not made anything yet that my family did not like. Excited about her show that will be on Saturday mornings. Really wish she had a daily show, but maybe in time she will.
LOVE the recipes the Pioneer Woman makes love love the show try not to miss it. When will she publish another book can't wait. Fantastic pictures in her book also!!!
Read it like it was a novel. Thoroughly enjoy her show, her honesty, her sense of humor and her recipes are wonderful.
I find this cookbook to be very applicable to my cooking. The recipes, ingredients and taste are similar to my way of cooking/baking. Not easy to discover a cookbook where you find most of the recipes appeal to you.I have a feeling I will utilize most of them.
The pictures are great, stories heart warming, and the food so basic and comforting. The ingredients for the recipes are usually already in your pantry. This is the kind of food my family eats. And a regular visitor to my house told me on day. "I love to come to your house, your kitchen always smells so good!" Thats the kind of food in this book...it will make your kitchen smell so good.
It is a beatifully illustrated book and draws your attention immediately. The recipes are "down home" types that my generation grew up with. It's an alround great book and one I'll recommend to all my cooking friends! Donna McGaw Blue Springs, MO
This is one cookbook I read from cover to cover. It's entertaining, informative, the pictures and instructions are fantastic and the author - she's entertaining, funny and most of all, this woman can cook and knows the importance of seasoning and flavor. I know I will eventually make everything presented in this book. I would only make one suggestion: it would be so nice if cookbook publishers would make the books with a coil binding so the book will stay open while you are trying to create the dish. Other than that, this book gets five stars from this suburban woman.
This cookbook took me back home. I especially loved the flat apple pie. I also love how she personalized her cookbook (I fell in love with charlie) The recipies were easy to follow and well explained. I have recommended this cookbook to my freinds and family. Thank you for the trip back home Colette Woodworth
Very dissapointed in the book. Not many recipes and too many pictures of family.I would have sent it back but I dont feel like paying any more money for re stocking fee.
I purchased this cookbook to give to a friend for her birthday...but before I gave it to her, I copied a couple of recipes that I wanted to try. She really liked the cookbook.
Great book, to read and the recipes are fun and easy to make. Really enjoy a day to day real persons way of cooking.
I love the Pioneer Woman and never miss an episode and I love Ree's cookbook. Not only are the recipes easy to follow but the stories that she tells all through the book are delightful. I hope food network keeps her around for a long time.
