“Mouthwatering….Step–by–step instructions are illustrated with photographs at each stage. Ranch–style chicken, grilled cheese sandwiches and fancy macaroni and cheese will appeal to the reader’s desire to cook hearty foods…[and] Drummond makes exotic–sounding dishes such as Italian Meatball Soup and Honey–Plum–Soy Chicken as simple as frying an egg.” (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Back Cover

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.

By Reviewer #67845 HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 13, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Ree Drummond, who uses the nom de plume "Pioneer Woman" for her eponymous show on the Food Network, is following on the success of her 2009 debut The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl with a new cookbook designed to bring the taste and culture of her family-style cooking to the rest of the world.

I've never seen an episode of Pioneer Woman, and had never heard of Ree Drummond up until a month ago. My familiarity with her grew quickly only a few pages into it. "Food from my Frontier" is filled with pictures and stories of her family and children, and if you don't know the names of everyone by the time you've reached the soup section, then it's likely several pages have gotten stuck together. At first glance, I started to groan. I know all about the emotional aspect of cooking, and I'm used to chefs playing up the "family angle" in their books, but for the most part, I gloss right over it. I would gladly give up pictures of Gordon Ramsay's children picking strawberries or Paula Deen's niece cutting herbs for a crusty, bubbling mac and cheese or even a nice dark roux. I can fully appreciate the market for "coffee table cookbooks," but mine will spend most of their lives on the counter, with hand-cracked spines to ensure they lay flat and pages covered in grease and olive oil. At first appearance, "Food from my Frontier" follows the same formula, but it quickly becomes clear that Drummond has hit a magical balance between form and function and created a cookbook that retains the down-homey family aspect that will make this book appeal to those that like to "read" cookbooks and those that use them to cook.

I like cookbooks. I don't care if an author has a blog and every recipe can already be found online for free. If I like the author enough I will spend the money so I can have the book, with all the recipes in one place, to enjoy at my convenience. I don't think it's fair to judge a book solely on whether the recipes can be had elsewhere for free. That being said, I just don't like this book as much as the first one. The first one grabbed me because it was fun and flirty, written in a tone that drew me in, with lighthearted photos and simple, delicious recipes. I didn't mind the extensive detail or the photos of the process that went into making each and every dish. This time, though, and I can't quite put my finger on it, I'm bored. The recipes aren't grabbing me; her down-home charm is wearing a bit thin. The recipes are more "exotic" (for her) this time around and a big departure from what she claims her family will eat. Her tone also seems more forced, as if she's trying desperately to hang on to who she was the first time around. And I personally cannot handle one more photo of a hand with a spoonful of paprika in its palm. There's detail and there's too much detail and these types of photos seem more filler than necessary. I have no real desire to cook from this book. This is not to say it's a bad book, rather, I just wish it drew me in as much as the first.

I think this is really such a great, well planned cookbook with so many wonderful recipes. The photography is fabulous and makes for an easy read. This is one cookbook I keep coming back to.

I love this cookbook! Great recipes and put together very well. You can tell how much she loves her family and cooking for them. I can identify with her a lot and I love that she is so real about everything.

I have her first cookbook and lots of recipes looked familiar as if derived from my Mom and Grandma. The 2nd one is even more yummy and the pictures are really beautiful, makes your mouth water for sure. This is not a low fat cookbook and if you go in thinking it is, you'll be disappointed. I've tried 2 recipes so far and lets just say my husband has signed up for a few more years with me. The Tres Leche cake was a hit at our house and I have marked pages in order to try them one by one and now carry it with me to the grocery store just to make sure I have all the goodies. I love her blog and I gain 3 lbs. just reading it and this cookbook does not disappoint. Now when I read the recipes, I 'hear' her give me the little quips of humor she dishes up on the TV version of her life as a foodanista!

There aren't as many recipes as expected (yes, I did "look inside" before I bought it). It's filled with nice photos but each step has a photo which makes it difficult to follow a recipe without flipping several pages. Fortunately, I use the mise en place method of cooking so didn't need to flip pages that often, but when I did it bothered me because it's obvious the ingredients and instructions could have been put on a single page with room for some of the photos.

Also, if you are a believer in the ranch (faux) story of Ree's daily life you'll enjoy the book as nearly every page has either a cute photo or a story of some kind. All in all, this plus the bazillion photos make it a thick cookbook with more non-recipe stuff than actual recipes.

I'd suggest grabbing the recipes from her blog since most of them are there. The few recipes I've tried thus far have been very good.
