#1 New York Times Bestseller

Crazy delicious recipes for your crazy busy life from the #1 New York Times bestselling author and Food Network favorite, Ree Drummond the Pioneer Woman.

For home cooks, nothing beats preparing a long, leisurely dinner for your family, stirring slowly, seasoning gradually, and savoring every flavorful step.

Screeeeeech! Reality check! Okay, let's face it: With school, sports, work, obligations, and activities pulling us in a million directions, not many of us can spend that amount of time in the kitchen anymore! What we really need are simple, scrumptious, doable recipes that solve the challenge of serving up hearty, satisfying food (that tastes amazing!) day after day, week after week without falling into a rut and relying on the same old rotation of meals. Cooking should be fun, rewarding, and it definitely should feed your soul (and feed the people in your household in the process)!

Here are some of my favorite make-it-happen dishes, pulled from my nonstop life as a busy wife, mother of four, and lifelong lover of food! The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Come and Get It! includes more than 120 of my best solutions for tasty, wholesome meals (with minimal fuss!) for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. (And let's not forget the glue that holds it all together: desserts! There are some dandies in here, friends.)

With a mix of categories and flavors that will please everyone, this book has everything you need to whip up delicious, downhome recipes that you can get on the table without a lot of stress. Now that's something to get excited about!

Just finished this cookbook online and every recipe I tried was easy and full of flavour! Her mac and cheese bake is great and her "Under 20" section is the best for weekday dinners!

Smorgasbook Club are fans of Ree but felt that this cookbook didn't meet the mark with recipes that have been around the block. The book is nicely constructed with color coded pages and layout that is in keeping with her style but there are two many pictures and their orientation should be left to right. We recommend another Pioneer Woman cook book unless you are looking for great pictures of Walter.

I liked the pictures and presentations, but most of the recipes I have made and are from years ago. The recipe for lemon bars is a basic lemon bar recipe i have been making since the 70s. Nice that i was able to take it out from the library and not waste $30.00 on it. That would be been disappointing.

I would agree with the previous reviewer who said this book felt rushed. While the pictures are wonderful, there is really nothing new here. It's like we've seen all of the recipes before. I have read several of her cookbooks and in this newest one, she seems extraordinarily fixated on telling us how handsome and fit she thinks her husband is. I finished it quickly so others behind me could have their turn, but I did want to say this: PLEASE do not turn down the pages of a library book. Someone before me did this, plus left sticky notes as bookmarks which did not come all the way off. This is NOT your book - it belongs to someone else, so please treat a library book with the respect it deserves. Many thanks.

I'm sorry, but this cookbook is a real dud. It's almost like the author (Ree Drummond) just had to write another book to please her publisher. The Hamburger Steak with Mushroom Gravy, for example, was flavorless--look for her Salisbury Steak recipe instead (not in this book). Also, Chicken Picatta is not typically made with heavy cream. Enough said, these are just a few examples. Very disappointed here.

Absolutely loved this book! One I will buy. show and has sEvery recipe is taken from hertep by step picture instructions. Drummond, a long time t.v. fixture has another winner with every day meals made with ingredients that you will have in your pantry.
She also photographs her family and farm life which adds to the book.

Fabulous Book!

I really enjoy Ree Drummond's cookbooks and read them as if they were a coffee table book. Her conversational style of recipe writing interwoven with family anecdotes and photos makes for an engaging read. The recipes are delicious too!
