One of the highlights of my time at BookPage was my trek out to Pawhuska, Oklahoma, in December of 2010 to interview the Pioneer Woman about her book Black Heels to Tractor Wheels: A Love Story. (You can read all about that adventure here.)
I also heard Ree Drummond—aka the Pioneer Woman—speak at Nashville's now-closed Davis-Kidd Booksellers in December 2009. At the time, she was promoting her cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks. (Read about that here.)
Needless to say, many people love the Pioneer Woman. Her website chronicles her life on a working cattle ranch and receives 20 million page views a month. She's also been profiled in The New Yorker and named as one of Forbes' top 25 Web Celebs.
And now she has a new book coming out. The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier will be published on March 13. It's bigger than the first cookbook, with more than 100 recipes and lots and lots of step-by-step photos. You can see sample spreads on Drummond's website. I've been flipping through a review copy at my desk, and let's just say . . . is it lunchtime yet?
Are you a fan of Drummond's recipes? Will you check out Food From My Frontier? Do you have a favorite cookbook from 2011? Check out our January cooking column here.
