More About the Author

"I'm a desperate housewife. I live in the country. I channel Lucille Ball, Sylvia Plath, and Ethel Merman. Welcome to my frontier!"

My name is Ree. I'm also known as The Pioneer Woman on my website, ThePioneerWoman.com.

Years ago, after living and working there for several years, I left the great city of Los Angeles . Fleeing a dead-end relationship with a surfer, I planned a much-needed pit stop in my Oklahoma hometown before beginning my new life in Chicago. While home, I met and unexpectedly fell in love with a Wrangler-wearing cowboy whose icy-blue eyes made me forget myself. Before I knew it, I'd canceled my Chicago plans, married the cowboy, and was bearing his children and chasing cows off my porch on his cattle ranch in the middle of nowhere.

Four children and thirteen years later, I still don't know what I'm doing here.

But I do know this: I'm exactly where I belong.

A former vegetarian and food-lover, it was a rude awakening to find out that cowboys don't eat seaweed. They don't eat salads unless they're piled high with ranch dressing, and they certainly wouldn't consider spicy Thai food the height of culinary bliss. They eat meat, lots of meat, with an occasional potato thrown in for balanced nutrition. I stood in my country kitchen and cried, mourning the beautiful things I used to eat. I stared at potatoes with disdain.

Then I picked myself up off the figurative floor, dusted off my apron, and figured if I couldn't beat 'em...I'd join 'em. I jumped right in, teaching myself to cook cowboy-friendly meals. Occasionally, I'd throw in some fresh basil to bring a little of my old life in. I'm still cooking today, and I love it more and more all the time.

Unless the family requests fried calf nuts, and then I start crying all over again.

One morning in 2006, my husband took all four of our small children to work cattle. In my pajamas, I wandered to the computer and started a blog, "Confessions of a Pioneer Woman." What started as a place to post the occasional photo or two quickly became a catch-all for rural stories, bizarre poetry, photography tips, and eventually, my step-by-step pictorial recipes. Now, nearly four years later, ThePioneerWoman.com is still going strong. I love sharing my crazy, silly life with the folks who stop by my site...and I love interacting with them. They're the best people on the internet.

My cookbook, "The Pioneer Woman Cooks", is a natural extension of the cooking section of my website. Using only simple and widely-available ingredients, I share my favorite, classic recipes from my website---along with a good crop of new dishes. I hope you enjoy it. It's homespun, homemade, and very stream-of-consciousness. It's me.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the style of writing that Ree Drummond has when it come to interpreting their dog Charlie.

My daughters, 3 years and 13 months both love Charlie! I have been an avid reader of Ree's blog for years now, and am also greatly enjoying her show on The Food Network. It is the only "grown up show" that I can watch with my kids and not worry about questionable material. I also trust these books! They are fun, with beautiful illustrations. I purchased this book on Amazon and the price was GREAT for a new book. Christmas in September??.. yes please. My daughter actually sleeps next to both of her Charlie books, wedged near her pillow. We also have a rascally basset hound in our family and my hope is that he, too is as loveable and well behaved as Charlie is. This book will make a great addition to our collection of Christmas books that we love to read on Christmas Eve (it's our tradition). Thanks to Ree for helping add to the magic of the holidays...Lord knows, my husband is grateful for the wonderful recipes she has provided over the years, too!!

A loveable book to read for young and old alike.

Begin your gift-buying now for Christmas because Ree Drummond is a wonderful children's writer. This book is so bright and cheery, even with Charlie's bad attitude in the beginning towards the new kitty. This is an excellent book that will entertain children and inspire them to get along with everyone. I could really picture Charlie on the farm and feel the snowy, cold winter breeze. Brrr!!!

Even if a kitty was not on Charlie the "King of the Ranch's" wish list, he realizes friends turn up in unexpected packages. I found myself resisting to laugh at some of Charlie's tricks to try and get rid of the kitty.

P.S. Can you find the chipmunk on the book cover? He's gonna appear on mostly every-page in the book. It will be a fun scavenger hunt to find him!

Ree Drummond sent me the above book for review purposes. She will allow me to keep the book. I have no other connection to and have received no other compensation from Ree Drummond.

Cute. It reminds me a little of the Hank the Cowdog books, and my kids all like it. Illustrations are cute, as is storyline. It is not one of my favourites, but we have enjoyed reading it a few times.

My daughter LOVES Charlie the Ranch Dog. This Christmas one is cute, but the original Charlie the Ranch Dog book is the BEST! We frequently read the Charlie books (almost every night!). It is worth the money for a cute story.

I love a book that can take a reader to an experience they might never really get to have. Working in lower socio-economic schools for many years, I saw the joy in children's faces when I shared a book with them that took them to an adventure. And, here we go again, out to the ranch with Charlie & a new friend or two. Without Diane de Groat's colorful & detailed illustrations, this book would not be nearly as fun. Just to see snow for some children will be exciting! But to see the details of ranch life (boots, lasso ropes, & cowboy hats, etc.)makes it seem like we are in the story as well. No one in the story seems to notice the little chipmunk that hides on most pages but the reader surely will have fun looking for it. The recipe at the back of the book seems to be an add on but then the author Ree Drummond is a cookbook author & food network star. Get your holiday shopping done early with this title.

I was able to keep my grandson, Buck, for five days in September. I bought Charlie The Ranch Dog to have at my house, to read to him during those five days. I quickly lost count of the number of times he brought me that book to read. I'm guessing it was well over 100 times. He loved the book! When I was to keep Buck again in late September, I took Charlie & The Christmas Kitty with me. I had planned it to be a Christmas Gift but couldn't wait that long. Once again, Charlie captivated Buck. We were together just for the weekend and I read Charlie and The Christmas Kitty to him multiple times. The best part of reading these two books to Buck has been that I enjoy them too. I love Ree's tongue-in-cheek writing style, and each sentence lends itself to using broad voice tones. I highly recommend both of these books to anyone interested in reading to a child. Buck is 18 months old and already is a bookworm.

A few years ago I purchased "Charlie, the Ranch Dog" for my daughter, who was 20 at that time. Her dog resembled Charlie so much I just had to get it for her. Since then I have purchased every new "Charlie" book I could find and have put them away for my grandchildren when and if I have them. If that's not in the cards, I'll donate the books. Either way, any child that is introduced to him, will find a sweet, gentle and very funny dog that they will fall in love with! I'm so glad I stumbled upon "Charlie", even at my age, you just have to smile as you read and look at the absolutely beautiful illustrations found on page after page! Take a chance on "Charlie. Your children will love you for it.

Charlie and the Kitty? You can't go wrong with this wonderful book for children. I recommend for children everywhere! I hope Ree Drummond keeps putting these books out or my grandchildren are going to be upset. These "Charlie" books are just amazing!
