On her way to from LA to Chicago, a vegetarian city girl stops at home in Oklahoma and meets "The Marlboro Man" in a dive bar she is at with friends. One husband, ten years and four kids later Drummond begins her blog, The Pioneer Woman, writing about ranch life, photography, parenting, homeschooling and cooking. In early 2009, The Times put hers in the "Top 50 of the Worlds Best Food Blogs". Now, in her debut cookbook, we get an entertaining glimpse of ranch life, motherhood and what she (and her family) likes to cook and eat. Chapters called Starters, In the Morning, Dinner (translation: lunch), Sunday Dinner, Supper (translation: dinner), and Sweets comprise a book chockfull of tasty comfort foods. An abundance of lovely photographs accompany every recipe before, during and after preparation. Drummond uses ingredients you usually have, equipment you probably own and techniques you already know. While there are vegetables and fruits featured in many recipes, there are few low-calorie choices. This book is full of flavorful recipes of meat, cream, butter, eggs, cheese and bready richness. According to The Pioneer Woman, the recipes "tickle my cooking fancy, but still make the cowboys hearts go pitter pat." YUM! Check catalog for availability.
