I didn t know that I could have such a great time READING a cookbook The usual cookbook is ust page after page of boring black
and white text Not so with the Pioneer Woman Cooks Ree Drummond combines her love ofwhite text Not so with the Pioneer Woman Cooks Ree Drummond combines her love of food and ranching in a beautiful homage to the people places and things that she loves Her photography is stunning The visual step by step instructions are easy to follow and the ingredients are items that you can find in a typical grocer store Add to that the fact that the serving sizes fit a real family plus the fact that the serving sizes fit a real family plus s all with food that you would want to eat makes this cookbook a true thing of useful beauty Ree isn t you typical ranch wife she still craves sushi and Starbucks but she was determined to make a home for her Marlboro man and her brood of children so why not grab the bull by the horns and do the best that a city loving woman can do Start a blog and learn to cook Works for me Love this book and I look forward to reading about her adventures on the Pioneer Woman blog I first stumbled across The Pioneer Woman blog through her photography section and immediately was fascinated with her writing and her life Completely down to earth she started the blog only about 3 years ago and it has morphed into something huge Her husband is a cattle rancher in Oklahoma where they also house wild mustangs for the government Everything she does is with class and high uality and attention to detail This book showcases her uniue style of teaching recipes She takes pictures of every and I do mean EVERY step along the way This would be great for a beginning cook to actually see what the food should look like as it is cut cooked presented It s also great for an experienced cook because the food itself i The only exposure I had to Ree Drummond before e borrowing this from the library was when I accidentally stumbled across a post on her blog about making Eggs Benedict I clicked out of there uick after reading her recommendation that you make an F5 tornado out of boiling water to hold the eggs together Eeesh no thanks So later I e borrowed this book since the fish out of water cookbook idea sounded interestingand was immediately confused Was this a memoir or a cookbook Or is it both And why are there so many pictures So many pictures that it took annoying food porn to a whole new level Seriously I know what bacon looks like ustsitting there I don t need several pictures of the bacon Also eight thousand pictures of your kids are not even remotely interesting to me But okay whatever clicking repeatedly eventually gets me to another recipeBecause I d never heard the term Egg in the Hole I actually got excited when Ree explains that she had to learn how to make them from her husband s grandmother before he would go through with the wedding THIS is what I was looking for Well loved family recipes down home country food you get my point and then i realized it took point And then I realized it took Kindle pages and seven photos to give me a recipe for an egg fried in the middle of a slice of bread Dude that is not a RECIPE That is frying an EGG Yes some people need to start with the basics but calling this a RECIPE with photosis ridiculous I m returning this book without finishing it because I can t wade through another thousand repetitive food pornranch porn photos and endless rhapsodizing about how hot Marlboro Man don t EVEN get me started on that nickname is Although I like to watch the Food Network I can t say I have watched Pioneer Woman very often In this cookbook we learn a lot about Ree Drummond She s shares about her day to day life on the ranch including lots of photographs of her family pets etc The recipes include pictures and easy to follow instructions In fact the step by step instructions each have their own picture of that particular step I understand her blog which I have never visited is set up this same way with lots of visual instruction She admits in the book s introduction that her recipes are hearty and most definitely not low calorie This is very true and since I didn t really watch Pioneer Woman or visit the blog I was unawar. #1 New York Times BestsellerPaula Deen meets Erma Bombeck in The Pioneer Woman Cooks Ree Drummond’s spirited homespun cookbook Drummond colorfully traces her transition from city life to ranc.
