Book Overview

My name is Ree.

Some folks know me as The Pioneer Woman.

After years of living in Los Angeles, I made a pit stop in my hometown in Oklahoma on the way to a new, exciting life in Chicago. It was during my stay at home that I met Marlboro Man, a mysterious cowboy with steely blue eyes and a muscular, work-honed body. A strict vegetarian, I fell hard and fast, and before I knew it we were married and living on his ranch in the middle of nowhere, taking care of animals, and managing a brood of four young children. I had no idea how I'd wound up there, but I knew it was exactly where I belonged.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks is a homespun collection of photography, rural stories, and scrumptious recipes that have defined my experience in the country. I share many of the delicious cowboy-tested recipes I've learned to make during my 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 Crème Brûlée. I show my recipes in full color, 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.

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.

   Pioneer Woman Style!
It's a little smaller than the Martha Stewart book, but it has a few less recipes. But she kept in mind that style was just part of the story. You can find some of the recipes from this book and her other ones in the new cookbook. The fact is, most people just love her books. It's perfect for someone learning to cook or someone who cooks all the time. Follow along with the ever-expanding family of foodies.

   Love the Pioneer Woman!
I've always loved the Pioneer Woman, her show and her books. This book is hardbound and sturdy, looks great on my bookshelf. Easy to follow, the recipes are fairly easy to make. They are great for a family, Raymond said. Good old home cooking, Mr. D'Antonio said. Vibrant and enticing images of sunsets and sunrises fill the screen. The book is a must-have for any book club.

   Great food and fun stories.
Her story will thrill you to the bone if you love ranch life as a whole, otherwise leave it to the ones that do. Each recipe is photographed with all the steps it takes to make it. Great to see the rural folk back home, Mr. Dhaliwal said. My Favorite.

   I am going to get in a lot of trouble with a lot of people for not giving this five stars
I love the pictures and the personal stories, added Blair. My only problem is that I have not had the success that I would have liked with the recipes in this book. I still watch her show because I love her personality, her home, her family, and her lifestyle, Blair said. I almost bought her second book, because I just enjoy her style.

   The Pioneer Woman ROCKS at cooking, photographing and story telling!
I started out with this cookbook, then my daughter saw it and raved so I ordered her one, then my daughter from out of town came down and had to have one too, so I gave her mine and ordered a third! I have since ordered her biography From black heels to Tractor Wheels and pre-ordered her upcoming holiday recipes book. Needless to say, I watch her TV program, too.

   Perfect
No fancy food here, just hearty, good food, with no exotic ingredients, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's so easy to understand, even for the most advanced level linguists. Whether you're a new cook or an old one who's lost her way, this book has all the recipes you need. I've cooked some of these same things for years, but a few little details have improved the dishes so much that I'm enjoying cooking again. I bought the cookbook for all the women in my family and have a couple of extras on hand for wedding gifts. And if you don't want to use it, there are tons of fun photo and story-based recipes.

   Great book, but not a cookbook
I'm delighted that Penguin has chosen to publish this great book. It's a lot of fun, said Blair. I was disappointed there were no recipes. It really felt more like a book I was to read rather than a cookbook. And I bought thinking that I would find so many great recipes, because my family is picky eaters, so I usually go through a lot of recipes to find the one that they'd like. I think I found one in this book, too.

   Good book, cheap binding
The second time around, I fell apart because the bonding was so cheap. I hope that enough time has passed that they have taken care of the issue, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   Great recipes
Ree has been my go-to gal for yummy, wholesome recipes for a while now, but she has absolutely saved me during this quarantine! She has step-by-step photos of each recipe, and an index in the back makes it easy to find. She has a wealth of cookbooks to choose from, and you won't be disappointed with any of her recipes.

   Real recipes
I love the recipes because they are recipes that I would really use and don't have weird and obscure ingredients, Melissa told The Age. In a pinch, I don't have to run to the store for an item that I may never use again.
