The Pioneer Woman Cooks – cookbook of the season
And the hottest cookbook of the Christmas season is…. (drum roll) The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl by Ree Drummond.
I’m a thirty-something ranch wife, mother of four, moderately-agoraphobic middle child who grew up on a golf course in the city. I attended college in Los Angeles and wore black pumps to work every day. I ate sushi and treated myself to pedicures on a semi-regular basis. I even kissed James Garner in an elevator once. Then, on a brief trip to my hometown, I met and fell in love with a rugged cattle rancher. Now I live in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch. My days are spent wrangling children, chipping dried manure from boots, washing jeans, and frying calf nuts. I have no idea how I got here…but you know what? I love it. Don’t tell anyone.
I’ve just been surfing around her website and trying to find out what she actually does. It would appear the Pioneer Woman simply does her website, has a cookbook and is pioneering.
