The Pioneer Woman Cooks – Come and Get It! is Ree Drummond’s newest cookbook. This cookbook touts simple, scrumptious recipes for crazy busy lives.
It’s the perfect gift for anyone who loves to cook and is a fan of The Pioneer Woman.
Food blogger and cookbook author Ree Drummond, aka as “The Pioneer Woman,” is a sassy former city slicker who has moved to a ranch in Oklahoma to live with her rancher husband, their children and a menagerie of animals.
Drummond also has a TV series on the Food Network and invites viewers into her life (and kitchen), sharing her brand of home cooking, from suppers that are thrown together in a hurry to preparing elaborate celebrations.
It’s amazing to me how you can Google recipes for any cuisine from your phone while walking down the aisle of a grocery store. So convenient!
But… if you know someone who still enjoys the feel of a cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks – Come and Get It! is a treasure of delicious recipes! And her down-to-earth way of writing will make anyone laugh.
I just so happened to know that someone. My son’s girlfriend, Danielle, beamed from head to toe when she opened the cookbook gift signed by her idol.
Pioneer Woman’s Simple, Scrumptious, Doable Recipes
Danielle, her mother, and sister are huge fans of Ree Drummond and traveled to Pawhuska, Oklahoma to visit the Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile Store. They were mesmerized by the general store, exceptional deli, and amazing desserts in the bakery!
No wonder Danielle loves Ree’s cookbook. Here is an excerpt from her cookbook.
For home cooks,
Nothing beats preparing a long, leisurely dinner for your family, stirring slowly, seasoning gradually, and savoring every flavorful step.
Screeeeeech! Reality check!
Okay, let’s face it: With school, sports, work, obligations, and activities pulling us in a million directions, not many of us can spend that amount of time in the kitchen anymore!
What we really need are simple, scrumptious, doable recipes that solve the challenge of serving up hearty, satisfying food (that tastes amazing!) day after day, week after week without falling into a rut and relying on the same old rotation of meals.
Cooking should be fun, rewarding, and it definitely should feed your soul (and feed the people in your household in the process)!
I’m asking Danielle if I can tag along the next time they make a trip to Pawhuska and hopefully get the opportunity to meet The Pioneer Woman herself.
