Cook the Book: 'The Pioneer Woman Cooks'

Ree Drummond, aka the Pioneer Woman, will be the first to tell you that sometimes life doesn't turn out the way you'd expect it to. She was on her way to Chicago from Los Angeles when she met her knight in shining spurs and future husband, the "Marlboro Man." Before Drummond—once a self-proclaimed city girl—knew it, she was married to this unlikely man of her dreams and whisked off to a vast cattle ranch in Oklahoma. While the story is pretty darn romantic, adjusting to ranch life wasn't exactly easy for the Pioneer Woman. The reality of life without take-out Thai food, fancy coffee, and weekly mani-pedis was a little hard at first. While whipping up a breakfast of sausage... More

Nice Kitchen, Pioneer Woman

PWC, for instance, is full of recipes that you can almost follow by peeping the pix alone. While we at SE once drooled at the photos on her cooking site, we're now agog at the kitchen she shoots them in. Look at that thing!... More

In typical Pioneer Woman fashion, every step—from dicing the onions to layering bacon on top of the bean-filled casserole pan—is captured in a vibrant, mouthwatering photograph.

Blogwatch: Pumpkin Cheesecake

The season for pumpkin isn't over yet, so why not try this pumpkin cheesecake with a ginger-pecan crust from Muneeba of An Edible Symphony. Topped with raspberries and a generous dollop of whipped cream, it has "just the right amount of creaminess." Inspired by The Pioneer Woman, Muneeba's cheesecake is a snap to put together. All you need is a food processor or blender and a springform pan. There's also no waterbath—good news for those who are still scared to try the technique (i.e., me). It's alright, I'll get over my shame by diving into a slice of this pumpkin cheesecake.... More
