Award-winning blogger and best-selling cookbook author Ree Drummond is bringing her down-home recipes to Food Network on August 27 in her new show, The Pioneer Woman. Over the past five years, Drummond has chronicled her life as a big-city-gal-turned-rancher’s-wife on her remarkable food and lifestyle blog. Now, she gives fans an inside look into her family’s picturesque Oklahoma ranch as she offers a slice of frontier life mixed with hearty family meals and elegant menus for entertaining.
“Ree’s easy-going humor and down-to-earth approach to food and life have won her millions of devoted fans online,” says Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Programming and Production for Food Network. “Now, in The Pioneer Woman, she welcomes us into the vibrant and beautiful home she has created and demonstrates how she makes her simple yet delicious variations on traditional American fare into memorable mealtimes for family and friends.” (Source: The FOOD Network)
While the family works cattle, Ree Drummond's filling the freezer with delicious components ready to turn into meals at a moment's notice. There are All-Purpose Meatballs, fabulous in a variety of incredible speedy sauces; Perfect Grilled Chicken, ready to star in delicious meals like a Chicken and Apricot Panini; and Chicken Taco Meat, the key to easy meals and a big batch of spicy Arrabbiata Sauce.
It's three days of Easter on the ranch, starting with a big Good Friday delivery of Hot Cross Buns to friends. Then on Saturday Ree's making a fabulous spring lunch of Tortellini Primavera for the kids and cute Krispy Eggs to take to the Easter Sunday potluck at church along with a stunning Basket of Crudites with a delicious Spinach Dip.
