Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaDuke09 Real food, good recipes, great photographs
I like this cookbook because it is real food. . .not super fancy with ingredients that are hard to find. And I like how Pioneer Woman weaves the story of her family and life on the ranch into her recipes. Plus she is an incredible photographer and the cookbook provides step-by-step photos to go along with the recipes. She does the same thing on her blog but I think it may be easier to read in a book rather than on a website.

I already love reading Ree's blog everyday, so it didn't surprise me when I fell in love with her cookbook. I love it and want 25 more to share. Her step-by-step recipes are easy to follow and are REALLY good. THANK YOU PIONEER WOMAN!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BPLKWW More than a cookbook
This book shouldn't be called a plain cookbook. Yes, it contains great recipes (many containing plenty of butter; if you are looking for low-fat, low-calorie dishes the pickings will be slim). There are not hundreds of recipes but a decent variety, and each has step by step instructions that will give even an inexperienced cook the confidence to try these recipes. What sets this cookbook apart is the author's folksy, goofy, good-natured humor; beautifully photographed color photos of every recipe and many photos of the preparation instructions; and glimpses into an Oklahoma rancher's life that makes you feel like you're part of the family, or at least a ranch hand. It's a fun read that will leave you hungry (literally!) for more.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Becca325 Great Cook Book
This cookbook is the best. I bought 3 for gifts. There is not a bad recipe, tried almost all of them, and have never been disappointed. The photography is beautiful.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jUjujudy Handsome Useful Cookbook
The Pioneer Woman Cookbook is a delight. I especially enjoyed the pictures along with the recipes...really nice food photography. I thought I made good white beans but yummm. I returned to buy another. The value at Walmart was exceptional. Beat the heck out of Barnes and Noble, Borders. I will return to Walmart to buy Books! Who thought?
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chilligirl88 Great recipes
A friend told me about this cookbook after making the meatballs from it. Everything that she and I have tried is wonderful. Ree also tells us a little about her life. She includes photos that she took. I love PW!! Walmart delivered this to my house faster than expected!! I would cook from this cookbook more but most of the recipes are no low calorie or low carb. So I probably use it about once every week or two now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JodyLeigh Amazing Cookbook!!
I love every recipe that I have tried. I also enjoy her stories and beautiful photographs. This is my new favorite cookbook! Walmart.com had the best price I could find.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ruathahold Fun, basic recipes if you are not on a diet.
This cookbook is beautiful. The pictures are mouth watering. The family photos make is personal. It gives you a feeling of who the author is. I'm making her pot roast tonite, a little bit different than mine, but it smells wonderful. Can't wait to try other recipes. These are not lo-cal at all but they look like a good guilty pleasure recipes.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CowMom4 This is the best family cookbook I have and I have a lot! Not only is it user friendly, it has amazing photos and stories in it. I can not wait for her next one!

This gal knows about good down home country cooking. She is a gal after my own heart. I just got the book and have read it from cover to cover. It is not your typical cook book the stories and pictures are wonderful. Now to get cookin' and try some of her recipes. I know this is a book I will be purchasing as a gift for family and friends.

This was an easy Mother's Day gift. She got one of these books for her friend and then said she wished she had gotten one for herself too.
She loves it and enjoys the stories also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RN4ever Nice cookbook
I like the step by step tutorials on all the recipes. Some of the recipes are very time consuming but overall a great cookbook full of new ideas.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lapointgirl best cook book ever!
This book is full of beautiful pictures, not only of the recipes, but of this womens life. It is darling! The recipes are all very simple, ones you would make on a daily basis. It really is one of the best cook books i have ever purchased.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PoohbearLovesToCook ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS!
I have been so impressed with this cookbook, it is everyday recipes, easy step by step with pictures to follow and it is mostly grocery's that should already be in your pantry if you cook alot. It would also be great for anybody who is just learning to cook with the step by step and pictures to show you just how each step should look. I just can't brag enough I LOVE THIS COOKBOOK!! As a matter of fact I bought my best friend, mother-n-law & my nephews girlfriend one for Christmas.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mackiew A fun cookbook
I gave this as a gift. The recipient found it a very practical and useful cookbook as well as an entertaining one. Tidbits of homespun advice and stories are sprinkled throughout, so it's more than just an ordinary cookbook.
Rated 4 out of 5 by lovecookbks love this cookbook
In this cookbook she takes pictures of every step in the recipe and i love that about it. When i received the cookbook that night i was making stuff out of it because i had the ingredients in my pantry.
Rated 5 out of 5 by prepgal2 good recipes
I ordered 6 for gifts after purchasing one for myself. Recipes use ordinary ingredients.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dw0752 Fantastic book
Great recipes along with humorous descriptions of life on a ranch. The personal comments made this more than just a cookbook.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cshook8 down home cookin' at it's best
I have tried almost all of the receipes in this book and these are some of the of the best - this is not for those who want light no taste healthly meals - these meals are stomach filling and are best with the real ingredients -butter on hot cast iron. Totally recommend beautiful pictures even if you don't want to cook
Rated 5 out of 5 by ARodd A Must!!
This book is full of "real" food - stuff that you could truly serve your family every day. There are no complicated recipes and no hard-to-find ingredients. This book would be great for anyone just starting out on their own too because of the step by step pics. (Her website is fab too!)
