The Pioneer Woman is a friend of mine!

 

I love the Pioneer Woman like she’s a friend of mine.  I go through phases like this when there is a celebrity that I really like.  I used to love Martha Stewart that way.  With her it wasn’t her person but her stuff.  Her decorating, crafts, etc.  Martha is not very approachable though.  I honestly feel like I could hang out with Ree Drummond.

She has taught me how to cook.  My mother did and my grandmother did.  Cookbooks and experience have too.  But in the past couple of years, since I discovered Ree and started watching her show, reading her blog and making her recipes, she has taught me how to cook.

With some recipes you get the idea that the author doesn’t really want you to make it well.  They leave things out.  Ree tenderly and carefully explains every detail in a girlfriend kind of way.  You know what you are doing, you feel confident, and you smile.  And when it’s all over, the recipes work!  And you have happy customers.

My brother and his family got me a Pioneer Woman cookbook for Christmas.  I loooooooooooove it!
