    4.5 stars Odds are if you've watched the Food Network channel, you are familiar with Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman. She lives on a working ranch with her family and her recipes are basically comfort food type dishes. Not overly fancy meals, but they taste good, are relatively simple to prepare and should satisfy most eaters.

She lives on a working ranch with her family and her recipes are basically comfort food type dishes. Not overly fancy meals, but they taste good, are relatively simple to prepare and should satisfy most eaters. This cookbook contains 120 recipes and the chapters include Breakfast, Apps and Snacks, Salads, Soups and Stews, Pizza and Sandwiches, Pasta and Grains, Easy Skillets, Lovin' from the Oven, and Terrific Tex Mex. The thought behind the book is to include shortcuts here and there that should save you some time in the kitchen, but without sacrificing the quality of the food. The vast majority of ingredients listed in the book you should be able to find at a regular grocery store rather than a specialty shop. While the recipes give detailed instructions, it was disappointing that each recipe does not list the estimated time for prep as well as the cook time. That's pretty much a standard thing with most cookbooks listing it at the top of the page near the serving info. By far the best thing about this cookbook is there are lots of photos. Each recipe has a photo of the dish and each step has a corresponding photo. I own around 50 cookbooks and it is extremely rare to get that many photos. Usually you're lucky if you get more than 2 photos per chapter. The recipes don't seem super complicated to make and therefore cooks of any skill level shouldn't have too much difficulty making the different dishes. I was impressed that there was a decent variety of recipes. I've been in a bit of a cooking rut lately, making the same dishes over and over, and this book inspired me to branch out and give some of her recipes a whirl. Thank you to William Morrow for providing me with a copy! All thoughts expressed are my honest opinion.

    Confession time… This is the first cookbook that I have read and gone through by Ree Drummond. I also have never watched any of her cooking shows (or anyone else’s for that matter, considering that I rarely ever watch TV). I have however, heard plenty about Ree Drummond and her Pioneer Woman cooking show and magazine. 🍳 I did enjoy this cookbook, although as with any other cookbook that I purchase or read there were only about two or three recipes that I would actually make.

I’m not sure that these recipes were “super easy”, as the title of the cookbook claimed. The presentation of the meals and deserts were beautiful, and I did become increasingly hungry while going through this book. Oh, what I wouldn’t do to have the meals already prepared for me by Ree Drummond- now that would be a real treat! 😋 I do recommend this cookbook to others, and I plan on going through some of Drummond’s previous books for more recipes.

    I feel bad rating a Pioneer Woman cookbook with only 2 stars, but I just didn't like this one. I felt like her earlier cookbooks focused on more from-scratch cooking and this one focused on a lot of pre-made, convenience ingredients. I think anyone who cooks regularly knows that from-scratch is not always time consuming and can be just as fast (and taste better) as most convenience foods. There were like 2 recipes I want to try, but usually with her cookbooks there are several I want to try.

    A cookbook born out of necessity and love, you’ll have the best time reading, using and eating from this glorious COOKBOOK! Ree Drummond is no stranger to the kitchen or making cookbooks. Recent changes to family life brought about by COVID-19 quarantines caused her to reevaluate her approach to kitchen time and cooking. Shortcuts could be ok if the food doesn’t suffer and they result in more time spent with family.

Ree Drummond is no stranger to the kitchen or making cookbooks. Recent changes to family life brought about by COVID-19 quarantines caused her to reevaluate her approach to kitchen time and cooking. Shortcuts could be ok if the food doesn’t suffer and they result in more time spent with family. Drummond provides pictures of her favorite “shortcut” items; canned and frozen products that are GOOD and can save lots of time when preparing recipes. She also suggests some hacks to save time, like using rotisserie chickens from the store when you need shredded chicken; all cooked & seasoned, ready to shred. There are others and seeing actual pictures of the products Ree uses will save lots of times for some folks. Her time saving suggestions carry over to the recipes themselves. Not nearly so many bowls and vessels are used and more tho’t is given to single pot, casserole dish, bowls and the like and how that will impact cleanup and total time spent. By far, my favorite part of this cookbook, (aside from the food), is the sheer number of pictures. Every recipe has a pictorial guide of the various steps and a finished product. You can read the recipe, follow the steps, check the pictures and know if you’re doing all right along the way rather than ending up unhappy at the end of the cooking process. If you’re an health officionado, this book might rankle a bit. There aren’t any DV’s for anything. This is down home on the ranch cooking, comfort food, casseroles, full flavor, butter bearing, whipped cream topped, eewey, gooey and delicious eating. Besides being full of great culinary photography, Ree has included updates on all her family members and used them throughout the book as assistants and provides pictures that tell their individual stories. It’s like you get a family album inside the cookbook. Fans will be in Pioneer Woman heaven. Without a doubt, this cookbook can be used by beginner and seasoned cooks alike and will make a terrific gift for the holiday season or any reason📚

    Ree. Ree. You've put me in a quandry. My main reponse after reading through her shortcut recipes is bitter disappointment. Cool-Whip? Bisquick? Ramen Noodles? Instant Pudding? Cream-of-whatever soups? Bleep-ing Fish sticks? :: groan :: Dang, girl. No. Just. No. The food looks delicious. But this is how-to-add-dangerous, unhealthy ultra-processed food to your diet. Fried pasta?!!? And there I go, screeching like a food crank. The thing to swish around your brain — a palate cleanser — after this "Be Ree. Ree. You've put me in a quandry.

The thing to swish around your brain — a palate cleanser — after this "Betty Crocker reimagined" cookbook is Robert Lustig's book Metabolical ("it's not the food itself that is bad, it is what has been done to it.") I have Ree's first cookbook. When I am looking online for a recipe, I gravitate towards Pioneer Woman. Two of her recipes, steak bites and Asian Noodle Salad, are staples of my weekly menu. Ree's lost weight this year and looks fabulous. I double-dog guarantee you it wasn't by these recipes. Ree is winsome. Ree is lovely. But this latest cookbook? Walk on by...

    I love these cookbooks so much. I can't resist them. The recipes are fun and easy in this edition. I have several pages marked, ready to try. The pictures of the food are tantalizing, and the recipes are easy to follow with lots of pictures in the directions, as well. I love these cookbooks so much. I can't resist them.

    Ree Drummond's latest cookbook full of easy recipes that use uncomplicated ingredients. Most ingredients will be in the kitchen pantry, like Bisquick, canned tomatoes, soups and beans, cake mixes, and frozen vegetables. Each recipe has lots of nice colour photos, and is easy to follow, and includes a little blurb from Ree. I will definitely try some of these recipe ideas, especially the Dalgona coffee and a bunch of the pasta ideas.

    A beautifully illustrated step by step guide to cooking recipes that encompasses everything from sunrise to sunset and a little in between. I love Ree’s signature witty sense of humor which is included at the beginning of each section. Along with photos of her family there are some great quick recipes. All in all a quality easy to follow recipe book for people who do not eat restricted diets. Although you certainly could substitute in my opinion and make them your own version.

    Can't say enough about this book. The recipes are easy and look delicious. She gives to many helpful hints and must haves for the pantry. I would be totally surprised if you didn't find a bunch of recipes that you like. I know I did. For that reason I am going to buy the book. The best part is that she personalizes it with photos of her family, making you feel like part of her family. The photos of the food also make it look appetizing as well. Great book, I really enjoyed it. Can't say enough about this book. The recipes are easy and look delicious. She gives to many helpful hints and must haves for the pantry.

    Ree has never left me down! I’m so excited to try some of the “super easy” recipes like the Chicken Lasagna Stew and the easy “past trending” dalgona coffee foam and the broccoli and cheddar orzotto! I love how all of Ree’s cookbooks have step by step color photos and easy to find ingredients - every recipe I’ve ever made from Ree has been delicious and cozy.

    I love all the pictures that guide you through each recipe's process. This book has lots of good recipes that I hadn't seen before. I like that she mentions all the pantry staples that she recommends you have on hand all the time. I also loved seeing all of Ree's family pictures and the wedding pictures from her daughter's wedding that were included in the book.

    I'm so happy I bought this cookbook! I will make an easy Pork Dumpling and broccoli soup this week. It sounds delicious, and the cookbook is full of easy can combinations that would have to be great flavor combos. I'm so happy I bought this cookbook!

    Love this book and love the step by step photos in her kitchen. However her number order goes down instead of across and it mixes me up EVERY time. Otherwise love the book. I made the meatball and polenta casserole and it was yummy. (Pg 250)

    A lot of these recipes are ridiculously simple and seem more like no-brainers than deserving of pages in a cookbook, but the way that Ree describes her cooking process and includes photos makes it valuable.
