The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier


I'm Pioneer Woman.

And I love to cook.

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a cowboy. A strapping, rugged, chaps-wearing cowboy. Then I married him, moved to his ranch, had his babies . . . and wound up loving it. Except the manure. Living in the country for more than fifteen years has taught me a handful of eternal truths: every new day is a blessing, every drop of rain is a gift . . . and nothing tastes more delicious than food you cook yourself.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier is a mouthwatering collection of the simple-but-scrumptious recipes that rotate through my kitchen on a regular basis, including Perfect Pancakes, Cowgirl Quiche, Sloppy Joes, Italian Meatball Soup, White Chicken Enchiladas, and a spicy Carnitas Pizza that'll win you over for life. There are also some elegant offerings for more special occasions at your house: Osso Buco, Honey-Plum-Soy Chicken, and Rib-Eye Steak with an irresistible Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce. And the decadent assortment of desserts, including Blackberry Chip Ice Cream, Apple Dumplings, and Coffee Cream Cake, will make your heart go pitter-pat in the most wonderful way.

In addition to detailed step-by-step photographs, all the recipes in this book have one other important quality in common: They're guaranteed to make your kids, sweetheart, dinner guests, in-laws, friends, cousins, or resident cowboys smile, sigh, and beg for seconds. (And hug you and kiss you and be devoted to you for life.)

I hope you enjoy, devour, and love this book.

I sure did love making it for you.

    I liked this better than the first cookbook because it's less folksy and personal - while there are still pics of her family and ranch, the focus is more on the food, and that's a plus for me. She doe...

    A visual delight! Yum! I picked this cookbook up today and plowed through it, from start to finish. In the beginning of the cookbook, when discussing her new recipes, Ms. Drummond states they're "guar...

    The way I "read" a cookbook is, if the recipe title sounds good, I pay attention. If the picture looks good, I pay attention. If the title or picture involves a food I don't care for, or doesn't sound...

    Normally when I get a cookbook I page through it and find one or two recipes that look okay. If they are really good, I will write them down or copy them and then pass the book on to a friend or famil...
