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.

“[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.”

MLB5 Stars Out Of 5November 14, 2009MLBThis book reads like a girlfriend sharing her best recipes and stories to her best friend. It is packed with beautiful-step by step photos of each recipe, including unbelievable breathtaking photos of the author's family and life on the ranch. Each recipe comes with well written and witty descriptions of techniques, ingredients, and tips, including substitutions to "gussy" them up making them more suited to a "city-style" life or taste. The adaptions are easy substitutions that go well with all she suggests. The author is honest,personal, and candid about her love of family, animals, life, and food. Any woman, city or country, would love this wonderful book. It is not just a beautiful cookbook with WONDERFUL recipes but a peak into a life change/love story/and current love affair. Oh, and the author did the whole book,including the pictures with just her family and friends. I own MANY expensive cookbooks by many famous chefs and this books equals any that are on my shelves. It is a top choice for all my fave girlfriends this Christmas.
