Today’s Cookbook Highlight is, The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond. When I bought this cookbook, I actually bought it because I was having her sign it not necessarily because of the cookbook itself. That is until I opened it up!
At first I wasn’t too sure why I was buying the cookbook since the majority if not all the recipes are on her website too. Then, I was skimming through it and the stories are the real love for me behind this cookbook. I love that it’s not just a cookbook stuffed with recipes. It’s a cookbook stuffed with love, family, and good food.
I also felt like being that I’m born and raised in Oklahoma, many of her stories are ones that I can relate too. We do not live on a ranch; however, we are surrounded by them here and my husband grew up working on a farm and later a ranch hand. It’s not far from us, my husband’s dream is to own a ranch and maybe someday that will happen. Until then, I love to read about the stories of Ree’s ranch as well as cooking up some of her delicious food!
This cookbook will always be a favorite of mine!
