Ree Drummond Cookbook and Book Tour

Ree Drummond released another cookbook today called The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Holidays!: 150 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Family Feasts.

Ree seems to be someone people either love or hate, and there aren't too many people in between.  She has quite the cult following from internet bloggers and people who seem to be interested in the 'ranch life.'  Other people, such as myself, cannot stand her and think she is boring.  If you are like me, a great site to read is The Marlboro Woman, where the website owner and the people commenting make fun of Ree, expose things about her, expose her stolen recipes, etc.

If you are in the 'love' Ree category, enjoy the book, and the dates for her book tour are below:

  1. Re: The Marlboro Woman. I don't understand why someone would waste years of their lives ranting at length about someone or something they don't like, especially something or someone that inconsequential. There are things more important.


    Oh...and I have no idea who Ree Drummond is, before you ask or accuse.

    rather watch her than Guy, various "wars", or restaurant stakeout/rescue dreck.

  3. Ree Drummond is known as "The Pioneer Woman". She lives on a ranch "in the middle of nowhere" and makes food that must meet the approval of hard-working cowboys, hungry kids, and her. And she does it well. She's another one I like because: 1. She makes food I would really want to eat. 2. She is unpretentious, sincere, and relies on great recipes rather than gimmicks. Good for her.
    No matter who we are talking about, it just floors me and I just shake my head whenever I hear anyone say, or see anyone post, that someone is lousy or bad --and gives nnoooooo specific info at all to back up how or why. People can like or dislike who they want. But I prefer details (even short ones) and to be informative.
    Ree Drummond is a good one (reasons already given). Damaris Phillips and Amy Thielen are also good. Same reasons: food I'd like, sincere, outgoing. It doesnt have to be southern, midwest or ranch either. I like Giada at Home, and Bobby's Barbecue, and more. Some on Cooking Channel, too. Glad Ree Drummond has become more well known after she got some weekday exposure. Many will .love her new book.

  4. I'm not a fan, the little I've seen of her; but one look at that web site immediately made me roll my eyes. Photoshopping a picture of her hair onto the face of a man with five o'clock shadow? How clever. I immediately lost interest in whatever they had to say.

    She doesn't live the "pioneer life". Pioneers didn't own that much land. They weren't worth that much money. The whole basis of her fame is completely false. She's an upper class, rich person. She's not a "down home family cook". So...

  6. OK, here's why I don't like Ree Drummond. First of all, "Pioneer Woman" as a descriptive is a conceit and a hypocrisy. Her father is/was a surgeon, not a mule skinner. She went to college in southern CA, not exactly the frontier. She married a rich rancher and moved to an isolated homestead with every modern convenience, not a log cabin in the wilderness. I don't like her pale pancake makeup and penciled on brows that erase every bit of character from her face. Most of all, her voice drives me up the wall. When her commercials come on, I hit mute. I can't speak about her recipes because there's no way I could stand to listen to her for a half hour.

  7. Wait, are you telling me someone on television is exaggerating their qualifications and/or fudging their bio? *dies of shock*

  8. Well, when you are a SAHM with a team of tutors homeschooling your children, maids cleaning your house and doing your laundry, all four kids are at relatively self-sufficient ages, and you don't help out with the ranch work, I would expect you do have a little more in your repertoire than Aunt Sandy Lee-esque dump 'n' stir and doctoring up packaged foods.



    It's a little disingenuous to play the little rancher wife routine when you have all the time and money in the world to build a (very large) separate kitchen to toil around in and create recipes without relying on jars and cans and church cookbooks from your mother's bookshelf.

  9. *shrug* You seem to care an awful lot about this for some reason. Let me guess, you run the website that is dedicated to bashing her?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, because I am the only person who has a dislike of PW and also has Internet access, so therefore I must be the one who runs "the" website.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Actually, I run the website you find umbrage with. Of course, most of the Pioneer Woman's paid commenters find fault with anything that falls short of radical adulation and worship.

  12. Perhaps a visit to your ophthalmologist might be in order. The "face of a man" is Ladd Drummond.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Perhaps a visit to a shrink is in order. No one cares about this family as much as you seem to. Seriously, get over it.

  14. No shit you run it, sweetheart. You're clearly unhinged on the topic. I don't even watch the show. But you keep on keepin' on with the cray cray, girl.

  15. Oh I see you alterted your compatriot. You two really are pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Compatriots? Like your buddy "StellaBartois?" Just curious, how much does Ree compensate you to trash The Marlboro Woman site? Hope it's worth it. It's really no secret what you gals are doing.

  17. Lady, you're a joke. You're obsessed with some woman I barely knew existed and hadn't given two whits about before your name popped up. Now, like a tick, or a cockroach, or herpes, you won't go away. Seriously: Get a friggin life. Obsessing over someone you don't know or like on the Food Network is a pathetic time filler; and becoming obsessed second hand with people on the internet who've noticed you are fixated is an even sadder comment. Do not have a spouse, or chlidren, or a job, or a healthy hobby beyond the Pioneer Woman?


    (That's a rhetorical answer, by the way. The answer is clearly no.)


    Get. A. Life.

  18. Surely unemployment pays better than trolling forums defending Ree's honor. Do you hire out solely for Drummond or are you available for other bloggers' dirty work too?
