Breaking free from a dead-end relationship, Ree Drummond
left Los Angeles and made a pit stop at home in Oklahoma on
the way to a new life in Chicago. It was there she met
'Marlboro Man', a fourth-generation cattle rancher with
steely blue eyes and a muscular work-honed body. Drummond
fell hard and fast, and suddenly she was married, living on
his ranch in the middle of nowhere, and managing a brood of
four young children (also known as 'ranch hands').
In her folksy, wonderfully engaging voice, Drummond shares
how she learned to cope with the isolation and peculiarities
of ranch life, from chasing beavers out of the pond and
saddling horses, to cooking for a man who believes the sun
rises and sets in a steak and baked potato.
Using only simple and widely available ingredients, Drummond
shares many of her satisfying and delicious recipes - both
for cowboys and cowgirls - including Cowboy Calzones,
Pioneer Woman's Ribeye Steaks, Cheese Grits, fresh
Blackberry Cobbler, Pico de Gallo, and Iny's Prune Cake.
Bursting with the colors and flavors of country life and
peppered with her wonderful homespun stories, "The Pioneer
Woman Cooks" encourages even the most harried urban cook to
slow down, relish the joys of family, nature, and great
food, and keep it real.
