The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes From An Accidental Country Girl by Ree Drummond
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes From An Accidental Country Girl is a homespun collection of photography, rural stories, and scrumptious recipes that have defined my experience in the country. Ree shares many of the delicious cowboy-tested recipes she's learned to make during her 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 creme brulee. Ree shows her recipes in full color and 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.
From Ree Drummond: "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."
