I have told you many times that a couple of my favorite past times are watching cooking shows on the weekends and looking through cookbooks.  So when The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond came out with a new cookbook all about holiday entertaining and cooking, I would hardly wait to get my hands on a copy!

The Pioneer Woman Cooks:  A Year of Holidays

For most people, the holidays are a time to gather with family and friends and that usually means cooking and baking a little more than your normal routine.  The Pioneer Woman Cooks:  A Year of Holidays offers recipe ideas for 12 holidays that are sure to keep your guests happy.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks:  A Year of Holidays

Ree (aka The Pioneer Woman) is so humble and seems like the kind of person that I would like to be very good friends with.  For those of you who don’t utter her name daily, Ree is a food blogger turned Food Network show host who lives on a gorgeous ranch in Oklahoma with her cowboy husband and four likable and seemingly very well-rounded children.  Ree’s Food Network show features her either making enough food to feed over 100 hungry kids at her son’s football camp or making her father-in-law his favorite foods for his birthday dinner just to name a few examples.  I love Ree because she is down to earth, can make fun of herself on national television and just seems to have such an insightful handle on what home cooks want to make for weeknight meals or festive holiday occasions.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks:  A Year of Holidays book is organized by holidays beginning with New Year’s Day, progressing through the year with everything from Super Bowl treats to Cinco de Mayo fiesta ideas.  Ree has a lot of experience feeding a crowd so she has you covered with menu plans for your 4th of July barbecue celebration or your Easter Sunday gathering.  All of the ingredients for the recipes in this book are easy to find and Ree is the queen of step-by-step photos with her recipes.  I love step-by-step photos along the way in a recipe because it encourages me that I am doing everything right and then I am confident that my recipe will turn out the way it is supposed to.

    I don’t enjoy hosting Holidays. Too stressful and too hard to coordinate.

    Have you read her love story book? I can’t remember what it is called, but it’s about how she met the Cowboy, etc. It’s a good one!
