    This book is 1 part of the most basic recipies you'll ever need and 15 parts pictures of her family and horses. It's more of a love letter to her kids than an actual cook book, but if you need to know that to make eggs in a basket you put egg on toast, go ahead and buy this.And with all the photos o...

    This cookbook is a boatload of fun. The story of how a big city woman became a country girl, serving hearty food to ranchers, is interesting in its own right. The variety of pictures that portray life on a ranch--having little to do with the recipes--adds a very nice context against which to look at...

    If you've followed her blog as I have, you'll be pleased to find that author Ree Drummond sticks to her characteristic mix of wry humor and butter by the pound. I'm glad. It's been working for her. In The Pioneer Woman Cooks, her cookbook slash photographic memoir, Ree brings to life the story of he...

    I didn't know that I could have such a great time READING a cookbook. The usual cookbook is just page after page of boring black and white text. Not so with the Pioneer Woman Cooks. Ree Drummond combines her love of family, food and ranching in a beautiful homage to the people, places and things tha...

    I've been following Ree Drummond since she first began blogging a few years ago. Her quick wit makes it a pleasure to read even the most mundane of daily tasks. When I found out there was to be a cookbook, I knew I *had* to have it. Ree is obviously a visual person (something I appreciate) because h...

    First of all, why would you even buy this book since all of the recipes are on her website for free--unless you just had to have the complete Pioneer Woman Experience--and there are legions. She is highly marketed. What you aren't told is that her husband is something like the eighth largest land ow...

    I don't cook, not really. I can make an okay omelet, an edible lasagna, pretty yummy mashed potatoes and gravy ... and that's about it. And it isn't that I'm SO INEPT, I just don't really have the desire to cook. I don't like it. It's not fun for me. But here's the thing -- I LOVE to eat and I LOVE ...

    (WARNING: incoming rant)I wanted to give this book three stars but since I found out the TRUTH about what a fake and phony Ree Drummond is, I cannot.Through several websites I read the truth about Ree, her life of privilege in an upper-middle-class family and then marrying into one of the top land-o...

    This book was my first exposure to Pioneer Woman, other than stumbling on her blog a few times. I will say this: don't pick her book up expecting to go on a diet. She makes good, hearty meals for hard working ranchers and a family full of growing kids, so if you're looking for salad recipes this is ...

    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 quick after reading her recommendation that you make an "F5 tornado" out of boiling water to hold the eggs to...
