My name is Ree.

Some folks know me as The Pioneer Woman.

After years of living in Los Angeles, I made a pit stop in my hometown in Oklahoma on the way to a new, exciting life in Chicago. It was during my stay at home that I met Marlboro Man, a mysterious cowboy with steely blue eyes and a muscular, work-honed body. A strict vegetarian, I fell hard and fast, and before I knew it we were married and living on his ranch in the middle of nowhere, taking care of animals, and managing a brood of four young children. I had no idea how I'd wound up there, but I knew it was exactly where I belonged.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks is a homespun collection of photography, rural stories, and scrumptious recipes that have defined my experience in the country. I share many of the delicious cowboy-tested recipes I've learned to make during my years as an accidental ranch wife — including Rib-Eye Steak with Whiskey Cream Sauce, Lasagna, Fried Chicken, Patsy's Blackberry Cobbler, and Cinnamon Rolls — not to mention several cowgirl-friendly dishes, such as Sherried Tomato Soup, Olive Cheese Bread, and Crème Brûlée. I show my recipes in full color, step-by-step detail, so it's as easy as pie to follow along.

You'll also find colorful images of rural life: cows, horses, country kids, and plenty of chaps-wearing cowboys.

I hope you get a kick out of this book of mine. I hope it makes you smile. I hope the recipes bring you recognition, accolades, and marriage proposals. And I hope it encourages even the most harried urban cook to slow down, relish the joys of family, nature, and great food, and enjoy life.

Review:

"Blogger-turned-author Drummond gives readers a slice of frontier life in this likeable-enough collection of recipes and dispatches from the Oklahoma ranch she shares with her husband and children. Replicating the step-by-step photography that made her blog such a hit, Drummond walks readers through dishes ranging from simple — Guacamole, Chili, Artichoke Dip — to more complex, such as from-scratch Cinnamon Rolls and Sherried Tomato Soup. Drummond's careful coaching will help anyone intimidated by the kitchen fearlessly crank out favorites like Chicken Fried Steak, Meat Loaf and Rib Eye Steak with Whiskey Cream Sauce. While the recipes are reliable home cooking standards, relentless references to her husband, known as the Marlboro Man, range from distracting to juvenile, giving what could have been a comfort food classic the feel of a junior-high class project." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"[Ree Drummond is] funny, enthusiastic and self-deprecating, making the book appeal to pavement-pounders and pioneer types alike [with] recipes like steak with whiskey cream sauce, leek and potato pizza and pico de gallo. As a portrait of a real American family kitchen, it works." New York Times

Review:

"Drummond invites fans into her world with irresistible recipes and photos.... Here's a mom of four who can turn out a Perfect Pot Roast and make feasts for girlfriends that start with sangria and finish with creme brulee. It's sweet and seductive: You'll want to plunge right in." People

Review:

"Drummond's writing style is closer to a good friend dishing out advice than an expert telling people want to do." Denver Daily News

Review:

"[Ree Drummond] whips up mouthwatering meals with easy-to-find ingredients (she's miles away from restaurants and supermarkets) and shares what living in a not-so-little house on the prairie is really all about." People

Review:

"Need to know how to make the 'Marlboro Man Sandwich' for your hubby? Get the skinny at The Pioneer Woman Cooks! site." Chicago Tribune

Synopsis:

Paula Deen meets Erma Bombeck in The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Ree Drummond's spirited, homespun cookbook. Drummond colorfully traces her transition from city life to ranch wife through recipes, photos, and pithy commentary based on her popular, award-winning blog, Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, and whips up delicious, satisfying meals for cowboys and cowgirls alike made from simple, widely available ingredients.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks — and with these "Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl", she pleases the palate and tickles the funny bone at the same time.

About the Author

Howdy. I'm Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. Welcome to my frontier! I'm a thirty-something ranch wife, mother of four, moderately agoraphobic middle child who grew up on a golf course in the city. I attended college in Los Angeles and wore black pumps to work every day. I ate sushi and treated myself to pedicures on a semi-regular basis. I even kissed James Garner in an elevator once.

Then, on a brief trip to my hometown, I met and fell in love with a rugged cattle rancher. Now I live in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch. My days are spent wrangling children, chipping dried manure from boots, washing jeans, and frying calf nuts. I have no idea how I got here...but you know what? I love it. Don't tell anyone.

Fantastic recipes, gorgeous photos, funny, down-to-earth writing- what more can you ask for? Each recipe is accompanied by step-by-step photos which are pretty helpful in illustrating what to do. I've really enjoyed every recipe I've tried- the cinnamon rolls are my current favorite. A word of warning, though: many of the recipes, while absolutely delicious, are not exactly diet friendly.

I have been a fan of PW's blog for a few years, so I was really excited when her cookbook was published! It did not disappoint. I've tried many of the recipes and they have become family favorites, especially the Twice-Baked Potatoes! If you're looking for good food that is easy on the cook and family-friendly, this is the cookbook for you.
