    This cookbook is like no other in my cupboard... which is both a good thing and a bad thing. I've only recently started reading her blog recently, and knowing that she has a blog, I'm a little disappointed at how few recipes are in the book. She had soo many recipes w/ pictures taken a...

    Got my copy and love the layout of the cookbook. It's classic Pioneer Woman and after scanning the book quickly, it looks like there are lots of wonderful recipes. Beautifully photographed. A wonderful Christmas gift idea for anyone who loves to cook. Ree Drummond has hit a homerun wit...

    I got this for Christmas, and sat down and read it. Yes, read a cookbook! Everything that I love about ThePioneerWoman.com is also in her cookbook. She loves her husband, she loves her children, and she loves her life even thought is has hardship and difficulty. The photography is wond...

    I love Ree's blog. I've been reading it for over two years now and go there almost daily. I really had high hopes for this cookbook and pre-ordered it months ago. Yesterday the package came and I was so excited. I read through the whole book in one sitting. The book is colorful and the...

    Jackie says: This book is a lot of fun. Part cookbook, part scrapbook (complete with the author's own photography and honest to goodness clip art), and all love affair with food, family and ranch life. There are homey tidbits (like what NOT to scratch after seeding a jalapeno), old ...

    I don't cook, not really. I can make an okay omelet, an edible lasagna, pretty yummy mashed potatoes and gravy ... and that's about it. And it isn't that I'm SO INEPT, I just don't really have the desire to cook. I don't like it. It's not fun for me. But here's the thing -- I LOVE to...

    If you?re not familiar with The Pioneer Woman, you need to be! This woman is amazing! She?s a ranch wife and manages to maintain an amazing blog, homeschool four kids, take gorgeous pictures and create a beautiful cookbook. I was mesmerized by The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drum...

    This cookbook is a boatload of fun. The story of how a big city woman became a country girl, serving hearty food to ranchers, is interesting in its own right. The variety of pictures that portray life on a ranch--having little to do with the recipes--adds a very nice context against wh...

    A few good recipes, But Instead of 1/3 or more of the book taken up by pictures of cowboys, and cute animals (some they plan on killing and eating later) it would have been nice to have more actual recipes. I don't need a full page picture of her husband's butt in any of my cookbooks; ...

    I actually sat down and read this cookbook cover to cover, then I tried a few of the recipes and they got raves from my hungry crew so I figured I should review it. The recipes in this book had ingredients that I had in my pantry, which seems to never happen with other cookbooks. No no...

    pros: she's very upfront about what this is--high calorie food, very basic, meat and potatoes. cons: this collection of recipes is some of the most basic stuff you'll ever see. there's literally recipes for meatloaf and mashed potatoes. ridiculous. all her food is extremely m...

    This book is 1 part of the most basic recipies you'll ever need and 15 parts pictures of her family and horses. It's more of a love letter to her kids than an actual cook book, but if you need to know that to make eggs in a basket you put egg on toast, go ahead and buy this. And wit...

    This book was my first exposure to Pioneer Woman, other than stumbling on her blog a few times. I will say this: don't pick her book up expecting to go on a diet. She makes good, hearty meals for hard working ranchers and a family full of growing kids, so if you're looking for salad re...

    I've been a huge fan and avid reader of ThePioneerWoman.com for nearly two years, and have been anxiously awaiting this cookbook. It is without a doubt the most colorful, beautiful cookbook I own, and I'm sure one of the most colorful and beautiful cookbooks ever published. And it's mo...

    I didn't know that I could have such a great time READING a cookbook. The usual cookbook is just page after page of boring black and white text. Not so with the Pioneer Woman Cooks. Ree Drummond combines her love of family, food and ranching in a beautiful homage to the people, pla...

    If you've followed her blog as I have, you'll be pleased to find that author Ree Drummond sticks to her characteristic mix of wry humor and butter by the pound. I'm glad. It's been working for her. In The Pioneer Woman Cooks, her cookbook slash photographic memoir, Ree brings to life...

    I first stumbled across The Pioneer Woman blog through her photography section and immediately was fascinated with her writing and her life. Completely down to earth, she started the blog only about 3 years ago and it has morphed into something huge. Her husband is a cattle rancher in ...

    I became a fan of Pioneer Woman some time ago when I happened upon her blog one day. I've enjoyed her humor, the glimpses into her life, her children and the handsome Marlboro Man that she married. And now I am enjoying her first book The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental...

    I remember when I first stumbled upon Ree's now-famous website a couple of years ago: I was blown away by the photography and how funny she is. But that got boring. And she never improved. The recipes are boring and most of them are available on her website. And I'm sick of her ...

    Absolutely beautifully done book, practically a picture on every page. I love how there is a picture for every step in the recipes. (That is a BIG plus!) I would like to give 5 stars, but honestly, many of the recipes, while not bad, are just too mediocre, (Huevos Hyacinth and Egg-In-T...

    This is a strange little cookbook. I happened to watch an episode of The Pioneer Woman and thought that my family might like her simple, easy recipes. So I downloaded one of her cookbooks on my Kindle and starting leisurely bookmarking recipes while watching my children play on the bea...

    Anyone who picked up this cookbook and expected a straightforward, recipes-only affair must not be all that familiar with the internet presence that is Pioneer Woman. Each of her recipes have step-by-step photos documenting the process, which can be tremendously helpful for beginnin...

    First of all, why would you even buy this book since all of the recipes are on her website for free--unless you just had to have the complete Pioneer Woman Experience--and there are legions. She is highly marketed. What you aren't told is that her husband is something like the eighth l...

    The diet that my husband and I follow for our diabetes management gives us one day of cheating. The point is to eat so much of the bad stuff that you are happy to stay away from it for a whole week. And I almost always turn to the Pioneer Woman. She started out as a website and her for...

    I've been following Ree Drummond since she first began blogging a few years ago. Her quick wit makes it a pleasure to read even the most mundane of daily tasks. When I found out there was to be a cookbook, I knew I *had* to have it. Ree is obviously a visual person (something I appreci...

    The only exposure I had to Ree Drummond before e-borrowing this from the library was when I accidentally stumbled across a post on her blog about making Eggs Benedict. I clicked out of there quick after reading her recommendation that you make an "F5 tornado" out of boiling water to ho...

    (WARNING: incoming rant) I wanted to give this book three stars but since I found out the TRUTH about what a fake and phony Ree Drummond is, I cannot. Through several websites I read the truth about Ree, her life of privilege in an upper-middle-class family and then marrying into...

    Although I like to watch the Food Network, I can?t say I have watched Pioneer Woman very often. In this cookbook, we learn a lot about Ree Drummond. She?s shares about her day to day life on the ranch including lots of photographs of her family, pets, etc. The recipes include p...
