“[Ree Drummond] whips up mouthwatering meals with easy-to-find ingredients (she’s miles away from restaurants and supermarkets) and shares what living in a not-so-little house on the prairie is really all about. ” -- People
“[Ree Drummond is] funny, enthusiastic and self-deprecating, making the book appeal to pavement-pounders and pioneer types alike [with] recipes like steak with whiskey cream sauce, leek and potato pizza and pico de gallo. As a portrait of a real American family kitchen, it works.” -- New York Times

“Drummond’s writing style is closer to a good friend dishing out advice than an expert telling people want to do.” -- Denver Daily News
“Jokey and irresistible. Drummond’s…appreciation for something as simple as well-made pico de gallo is infectious. Such attentiveness to basic cooking skills makes the book entertaining and useful.” -- New York Times Gift Guide

Let me preface that none of these recipes are particularly healthy, so if that's what you're looking for, walk on from here. These are, however, delicious, home-cooking style recipes with easy to find ingredients and tons (too many) photographs of the finished dishes, the steps in between and general life on the farm.
The BBQ Jalapeño Poppers are wonderful. I like them even better when I cook and chop the bacon before-hand to mix into the cheesy jalapeño stuffing, as it's less greasy and the bacon is crispier. Likewise, the Potato Leek Pizza, while lots of work, is well-worth the effort and the Comfort Meatballs have provided lots of "comfort" every time we make them.
This cookbook is recommended for beginning to intermediate cooks looking for cuisine that can be enjoyed by the whole family on weekends and weeknights.
I actually made the lasagna tonight, and it was so, so good. I did make some changes (I used Italian ground sausage in place of breakfast sausage and 2 cups of ricotta in place of 2 cups of cottage cheese), but I feel like the original would have been just as great. The only recipe I didn't care for were the enchiladas. The steps seemed too much, as far as frying the corn tortillas and dipping them in the sauce when I'm trying to hurry and get dinner on the table, and they came out incredibly soggy. The meatloaf was good and the breakfast burritos will keep you full for most of the day (they are big!). I did try the cinnamon rolls, and failed absolutely horribly at it. My kitchen was a waterfall of melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon and looked like bad blobs. Even though I threw them away, it's something I never thought I'd ever try.
Some things I would have liked to have seen were prep and cooking time, as well as servings. If you're familiar with Ree, and love her recipes, getting this book is a no-brainer. I'd also recommend the book to those who are looking to learn to cook, due to the step-by-step instructions, as there are some beginner recipes for things such as mashed potatoes and the like.
Once you're hooked, you'll be purchasing all the others!

Love the step-by-step recipes and general feel of the book.
I read it just as much sitting on the sofa as in the kitchen.
the recipes are lovely but the way it is written has fun and a warmth to the book you meet the family and hear her story
I am addicted to the pioneer woman
