Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

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 Creme Brulee. 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 by Library Journal (2009-09-15)

Named one of Time's 25 Best Blogs of 2009, Drummond's the pioneer woman. com details her life as a rancher's wife. Her cookbook debut features such classics as buttermilk biscuits and macaroni and cheese (with roasted chilies and fresh jalapeOos). A warning for the calorie conscious: this grub calls for whole milk, heavy cream, and butter. The easy-to-follow recipes include step-by-step pictures, which accommodate beginning cooks. While this is certainly not the first ranch-style cookbook (see B. Byron Price's National Cowboy Hall of Fame Chuck Wagon Cookbook for more authentic ranch recipes and details on cowboy life), Drummond's biog notoriety and down-home dishes will surely make this book a hot ticket.
