I love Ree Drummond's recipes, and this cookbook launched her career. These crowd-pleasures are broken down with step-by-step directions.

Rhee Drummond, a city girl who married a rancher started out blogging, wrote this book and then eventually was given a cooking show based on her story.
The recipes are wonderful for family cooking or cooking for the men in my life who love meat and potatoes.
Her step by step illustrated instructions as well as her ideas for substitutions make this a wonderful cookbook. I have made a few of her dessert recipes and yes, some beef recipes. One that I must try is chicken fried steak. I always wanted to know what was chicken fried steak and she explains.
Worth a look!

This cookbook is a must have for any kitchen. The recipes are easy enough that anyone should be able to prepare them. I don't think there is one recipe in this book that isn't delicious! I LOVE that it has step-by-step photos!

I'm Pioneer Woman.

And I love to cook.

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a cowboy. A strapping, rugged, chaps-wearing cowboy. Then I married him, moved to his ranch, had his babies . . . and wound up loving it. Except the manure. Living in the country for more than fifteen years has taught me a handful of eternal truths: every new day is a blessing, every drop of rain is a gift . . . and nothing tastes more delicious than food you cook yourself.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier is a mouthwatering collection of the simple-but-scrumptious recipes that rotate through my kitchen on a regular basis, including Perfect Pancakes, Cowgirl Quiche, Sloppy Joes, Italian Meatball Soup, White Chicken Enchiladas, and a spicy Carnitas Pizza that'll win you over for life. There are also some elegant offerings for more special occasions at your house: Osso Buco, Honey-Plum-Soy Chicken, and Rib-Eye Steak with an irresistible Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce. And the decadent assortment of desserts, including Blackberry Chip Ice Cream, Apple Dumplings, and Coffee Cream Cake, will make your heart go pitter-pat in the most wonderful way.

In addition to detailed step-by-step photographs, all the recipes in this book have one other important quality in common: They're guaranteed to make your kids, sweetheart, dinner guests, in-laws, friends, cousins, or resident cowboys smile, sigh, and beg for seconds. (And hug you and kiss you and be devoted to you for life.)

I hope you enjoy, devour, and love this book.

I sure did love making it for you.
