Overview

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.

Author, photographer, and Food Network host Drummond is one of food blogging's biggest success stories. Her blog has grown into a staggeringly popular lifestyle website (thepioneerwoman.com) that gets more than 20 million page views per month. Her second cookbook features the same layout and cast of characters as its New York Times best-selling companion. While it covers the same courses (starters, breakfast, lunch, supper, and dessert), it includes additional chapters for soups, pasta and pizza sides, and canning. VERDICT Readers who loved the first Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook will love this second helping of hearty, crowd-pleasing recipes with step-by-step photos. Expect demand.

Bestselling cookbook author Drummond (The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels--A Love Story, 2011, etc.) returns with another compilation of mouthwatering recipes. The recipes are designed to "win friends, influence people, garner marriage proposals, foster friendships, mend fences, and make you the most popular person in town"--or to fill the comfort-food needs of the non–weight-watching crowd. The average cook will have no trouble duplicating these easy-to-follow recipes. Drummond's step-by-step instructions are illustrated with photographs at each stage in the recipe, leading readers from beginning to end. Covering all types of meals from breakfast, lunch and supper to party foods, beverages and desserts, many recipes are similar to what our mothers might have cooked before recipes became more health and calorie conscious. Familiar dishes such as ranch-style chicken, grilled cheese sandwiches and fancy macaroni and cheese will appeal to the reader's desire to cook hearty foods with a modicum of expertise, time and money being spent in the process. Drummond makes exotic-sounding dishes such as "Italian Meatball Soup," "Caprese Salad" and "Honey-Plum-Soy Chicken" as simple as frying an egg for breakfast. Interspersed with the recipes are more photographs of the author's life on her ranch. Some readers may delight in Drummond's down-home way of speaking directly to the reader, while others may find the interaction a bit snarky and annoying. A collection of basic recipes to guarantee a full belly and an empty plate.
