    Just what I'd expect from The Pioneer Woman. Love her take on cooking and living.

    This is not my favorite Ree Drummond cookbook. That's not to say that it isn't a good cookbook, its just not a great cookbook which is what I have come to expect from Ree. The recipes are focused on meals that are quick and easy to make, often relying on pre-made or pre-mixed ingredients (such as pancake mix or freezer dough). While this does indeed make the process faster, it can periodically be to the detriment of overall flavor.Now, there are ...

    I think this is my favorite of her cookbooks, so far. Tons of terrific and easy recipes. Since I’m a regular cook and not a chef I am always on the lookout for easy recipes. For example there is a great granola bar recipe made with rice krispies. Chicken strips made with Cap’n Crunch and a stuffed pizza crust. Yum! 😋

    I enjoy the Pioneer Woman's TV show and usually love her cookbooks, finding at least 3 or 4 things to make ASAP. Not so with this one. There wasn't a single recipe that I even considered. Very disappointing, Ree. I returned it! That almost never happens with a cookbook! I gave it 2 stars rather than 1 because of the nice pictures.

    It's a really beautiful book. The amount of pictures make recipes really easy to follow even for n00bs like me. The cutesy tone and the real life anecdote work for me, but I can see how it could be grating for some. This was actually intended as a gift to a family member who likes cookbooks, but I might keep it after all, because none of the recipes come across as "healthy", and some of the ingredients may be a little harder to find up here in th...

    Let me tell you why I LOVE this book!First, Drummond uses regular, everyday ingredients -- sometimes she even uses store-bought cake mixes, etc!Recipes are organized in colo-coded sections: Breakfasts, Lunches On the Go, Apps & Snacks, Under 40 (less than 40 minutes to put together), Under 20, Take Your Time, Sheet Pan Suppers, Meatless Marvels, Sensational Sides, Bread Baby, and Sweets, Glorious SweetsRecipes within each section contain the serv...

    Probably my new favorite cookbook, tbh. There are all sorts of recipes in here - main dishes, desserts, bread, etc. for everyone including the pickiest of eaters.

    Come and Get It is a delightful collection of simple recipes. Each recipe is accompanied by color photographs showing each step in the process. Also are some photos from Drummond family life.

    I’m a big fan of Ree Drummond’s books and tv show. She’s a loving wife and mom, has some fantastic recipes, funny, and I love they clothes she wears! So when I saw this book was available at my library I put it on hold. Two days later I had it in my hands.There are photos and stories of her, her family & pets, and The Merc. The recipes have photos of each step which I really liked. I do wish the book included the nutritional info for each r...

    I have always loved Ree's cookbooks but this one was very disappointing. For the sake of "fast cooking" she seems to have written a book that requires very little to no cooking at all. Real food has been replaced by pre-done ingredients and processed foods. I was so excited about this cookbook I preordered it. Too bad I can't return it.

    I enjoyed the writing much more than the recipes in this one. She is down-to-Earth and funny, but the layout (photos for every step!) doesn't lend itself to easy usage. The recipes are very handy and friendly and would be a great starting place for people without much cooking experience.

    Literally my favorite cookbook so far. Ever.The design, the simplicity of directions, the availability of ingredients, the tastiness of the recipes themselves... I love you, Pioneer Woman. You're the best.

    Actually, Ree Drummond's latest cookbook has one more subtitle. It's The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Come and Get It!: Simple, Scrumptious Recipes for Crazy Busy Lives. And, even if you seldom cook, this is a scrumptious cookbook to browse.Ree Drummond, blogger turned cookbook author and television celebrity, begins this latest cookbook with a collection of her favorite things. It includes her "20 Favorite Pantry Items", favorite freezer staples, refrig...

    A Visually Appealing Cookbook -- Cooking Made Easy Let me start by saying... I LOVE Ree Drummond. Her show, The Pioneer Woman, is my absolute favorite to watch. Her new cookbook is saving our meal times! We were stuck in a pattern of the same old recipes and/or take out. Cooking wasn't fun anymore and was becoming an unpleasant activity. We bought this book as our family Christmas present. I saw The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Come and Get It! Simple,...

    Loved the detailed pics for instructions. Liked her conversational style. Found inspiration for some recipes to try. Or even to create my own versions. Who wouldn't love a muffin top?!? Without the base. And the sheet dinners seem like they could be a life saver

    I just love these cookbooks. They’re beautiful, funny, and this one especially was filled with page after page of recipes I can’t wait to try. These cookbooks are made for cooking good food, but they’re also meant for reading and enjoying like any other book.

    This cookbook was actually fun to read! I really liked the pictures for the individual steps instead of just a typical recipe. When I try some out, I’ll come back and update my review.

    I really enjoyed reading the stories and seeing the pictures plus I cannot wait to try numerous recipes out of the book. There are so many great ones and love her style of cooking. I did not give this book 5 stars because most of these recipes are on her blog or the Food Network so nothing new. It is nice having them in one place.

    Didn't go too in depth, mainly just looking to find some good "try later" recipes me and my boyfriend can make down the road. Hopefully everything tastes as good as it looks!!

    Love this cookbook. Easy to follow and very colorful. Plus who doesn’t love Ree Drummond!

    I love Ree and I enjoyed reading her little blurbs but the thing I’ve always liked about her cookbooks is how familiar everything is to my Midwest rural kitchen. This cookbook has too many recipes that my husband turns his nose up to. He’s not eating a roasted vegetable sandwich. There are a couple recipes I will make but it’s not going to be a go-to like her other cookbooks are

    I found a few recipes I can't wait to make, but the rest seemed like something I've seen before.

    While I enjoy watching her show, this cookbook was a waste of my money. Very few things I would ever try, plus the commentary is just silly

    Enjoy the range of recipes. Like that the recipes have photographs for each step. Only complaint is the cook/bake time does not appear at the start of the recipe. Most cookbooks I have show the bake/cook or even prep time listed along with the ingredients. With this cookbook, you have to read through all the steps to find out how long to cook/bake it. I'd rather have it listed at the start, so when I scan the recipes I'd know this is a recipe mea...

    Another great cookbook for Ree Drummond. I loved the photography of the recipes as they were being prepared.

    I always grab her new cookbooks when we get them in at the library. (Librarian benefits, yessss!) I love how her recipes use every day ingredients and aren't super "fussy" (if you will.) The peach dumplings look really good... as does the no-bake white chocolate raspberry cheesecake... and the cheesy garlic pull-apart bread... and the everything else. :) Will definitely be trying some of these recipes! (Also, the ode to Charlie is so sweet.)

    I skimmed through this and read all the captions on the pictures the day I checked it out, but I wanted to read through the recipes too.I love the dedication: 'To Ladd, thank you for roping my heart. It's yours forever. XO.'Her relationship with her husband is so cute: "Captain forearms."The lil pop quiz about what Ladd's doing. F. It doesn't matter because look at his arms. Answer key: F.The page of why they don't have a lot of posed photos toge...

    This book read to me as a cross between a cookbook and random texts from my mom.I know that Dee has quite the online following (hence her oodles of dollars and kitchen the size of my dream home), however, I feel like she must be tapped out of recipe ideas if this is what she's presenting to the public.Most of the recipes are incredibly familiar, and some are a good reminder (oh yeah, rosemany can be used as a skewer. Oh, right, tortillas can be r...
