    Ree Drummond, in case you are unfamiliar, is a blogess who talks about cooking and family life. She lives on a working ranch and has four kids. Four? Unless she's had more I don't know about.Anyway, she has a pretty good sense of humor and puts it in her recipes and her intros to this book, which covers recipes for every holiday. She illustrates EVERY SINGLE STEP of a recipe, it's wonderful. If you are a new cook or just a nervous one, this will ...

    4 stars. I LOVE reading Cookbooks. Stories involving food preparation and recipes are beyond delightful reading as far as I am concerned, not quite on a par with eating said delicious food but an exquisitely joyful experience nonetheless. Ree Drummond is a woman that I have always enjoyed and admired as it is self-evident to me that cooking for family and friends is not only her passion but is also a great source of pleasure and enjoyment for thi...

    I love reading cookbooks. I know this isn't a novel or anything, but the way she writes the introduction to each section and then each of the recipes, and then the captions to all her photos, etc. Well, they make it really fun. Plus she lives on a ranch in the middle of nowhere, so I know her food isn't going to require a lot of fancy ingredients that I can't find or that are too expensive. She makes me want to create an abundance of food that my...

    I loathe this woman. She presents herself...I should say markets herself as just a down home mother home schooling her children, serving old-fashioned down home meals. In truth her husband's family is one of the richest and largest land holding in Oklahoma, she has a full staff, her children never seem to be schooled (they are always out in the field with their father,) and on more than one occasion she's been accused, accurately, of stealing-pla...

    Definitely not my favorite by this author. I think there will be a very small handful that I actually pull out of the book. Not sure why, as they looked interesting, but not enough to tickle my fancy enough to make them or that I think would fly by my brood.I will admit that I absolutely love the layout for RD books. Even the most novice chef could do RD recipes due to her step by step layout.

    Beautiful cookbook with full color photography. Each recipe and step in the recipe is meticulously explained and photographed making this a great cookbook for new cooks. I would absolutely gift this just as I received this as a gift. I didn't make a bad recipe. I found many of them repetitive - more filler than needed - and good but not outstanding. i.e. The steak and gravy recipe and a few of the desserts. I think the best recipe out of this col...

    I like to read cookbooks and I usually like the Pioneer Woman (her stories, recipes, photos) but for some reason this one irritated me. There weren't a lot of new ideas, most seemed recycled from earlier books, and the sequencing of the recipe pictures just annoyed me (instead of reading left-to-right her blurbs read top-to-bottom and then across - which kept confusing me)! Glad I borrowed from the library first (two months on wait-list!) and did...

    I usually enjoy her books and always like the pictures but this time I just didn't care for the recipes.

    I love reading cookbooks! I'm definitely going to try a lot of these recipes.

    This is a beautifully photographed book with step-by-step instructions. However, I didn't find that many recipes I would like to try.

    Amazing - her book got me drooling and wishing I could cook like her. So off to Amazon I went to get her books and imitate her skill to make the holidays, and lots of days, hopefully better eating.

    This is the first book I've bought by this author, though I followed her on twitter before she was published. For me, the book is worth buying for the "Perfect Pie Crust" recipe alone, because using it I made the first successful pie crust I've made in 10 years. All the women in my family except for me make excellent pie crust, so it was beginning to become a bit of a therapy issue for me. Using Ms. Drummond's recipe was super easy and turned out...

    Ree Drummond has a lot of great ideas and I love all of the pictures.

    I was not sure if I would want to purchase this book. The first cookbook? Loved it! The second one? Not as much. This one? I didn't purchase it, I checked it out from the library. And now nothing I make for dinner or treats for my family looks remotely good.This cookbook is five stars. Six. A classic that will begin new family traditions. Ree makes the book extra personal with photos from her own past Christmas cards...and all the other photos sh...

    I had heard of the Pioneer Woman cooking show and heard talk of her yummy recipes, but never paid much attention. When I came across this book in the store, I immediately wanted it and had to have it. The book design and format caught my attention (very pretty), and Ree Drummond's witty commentary roped me in. I've never actually wanted to read a cookbook, and this was the first that I did so. There's a wonderful organization to this cookbook tha...

    The recipes in this book look amazing and inspire ambition in my heart.The only exception is the egg salad, which is weird to me. Clearly I hold grudges against anyone who does not utilize my mother's egg salad recipe, which is the One True Recipe. I did not know this about myself. Don't mess with the egg salad, people!The cookbook pictures are all lovely.What really makes me love this cookbook, though, is the number of times it made me laugh out...

    I just think Ree Drummond is such a likeable person. I thoroughly enjoy her Food Channel show. Sometimes her recipes are a bit too spicey for us, but that is easily rectified. This is another great book of hers.

    The photographs are beautiful and Ree writes with a good sense of humor. I don't think I need to own this book so I am glad I got it from the library but I did learn a few things and might like to see it again at some point.

    I love reading cookbooks (and knitting books too) and Ree's books are so enjoyable to read. She makes me sense the pleasure she takes in preparing food for friends and family, and what is more enjoyable at the holidays!

    Another great addition to Ms. Drummond's cookbooks!

    Meh, this cookbook was nothing to write home about. I know the majority are on her website, so skip buying the book and check out her blog!

    It took me a while to figure out a rating because I love every Pioneer Woman recipe I've ever tried. Her chocolate pie is heaven. Her French toast casserole is heaven with syrup on top. But her cookbooks make me nuts, which is why I checked this one out rather than buying it.I find that a little of her schtick goes a long way, and it's the same schtick in recipe after recipe. I get it: you're a fun, scatty person who gets so carried away by your ...

    LOVE THIS COOKBOOK !! I have Ree's other cookbooks so of course I had to have this one too. She is funny, seems so natural on camera and is a great writer and story teller. I read her cookbooks like a novel. I have tried so many of the recipes. They're consistently delicious and easy to put together, especially with all the pictures she provides. Beautiful photography throughout. Ree shares so much with us about her family and life on the ranch. ...

    I love the Pioneer Woman's food, so this cookbook doesn't disappoint. I've had this cookbook for a few years since it came out, but only just now got around to really reading through it. I like that it's divided up by holidays instead of the traditional appetizers, entrees, etc. I also really like that each recipe has LOTS of color pictures of each step of the recipe. That way you can make sure as you're going that it's looking like it's supposed...

    I have been a follower of Ree since the day she first appeared on the Food Network. Her entertaining writing from her blog/website would make the Internet rounds so I was already familiar with The Pioneer Woman. This delightful title is another in a line of books she has authored and is a joy to thumb through. I read cookbooks (especially by this author) like a novel and this one does not disappoint.

    I met Ree at a lecture and signing of this book. There were tons and tons of people and yet she stayed calm and took the time to chat with everybody like they were old friends. Such a classy lady. In this book is the BEST recipe for mashed potatoes! Tons and tons of butter, but hey, if you only make them for the holidays your heart can take it! ; )

    Every year I make pumpkin pie from scratch, this year I did the PW pumpkin pie and they did not last at all. Ive tried a few of her recipes and everything has been amazing. There are pictures for you to follow along so you know what its supposed to look like. She makes it easy to read and to follow along.
  • Tanya
    1970-01-01
    I always enjoy Ree's recipes, I like that I have some other options for holidays. I've gone through and earmarked some more recipes. I enjoy the stories that accompany her recipes or why they came to be. If you'd like some old favourites with a new taste twist. Yum!

    Some excellent recipes and holiday ideas. A few strange concoctions. Some serious obliviousness to racial/cultural respect. (Fancy people aren't the ones who call it Satay; that's what the people in the culture who originally created the dish call it. As an example.)
