Pioneer WomanPosted: September 23, 2014
One of the Food Network programs that I haven’t paid a lot of attention to is The Pioneer Woman. The idea of the little woman making a hearty meal for her husband and the ranch hands did not appeal to me. As it happens, Food Network shows reruns of Pioneer Woman at noon during the first part of the week, so I’ve caught parts of episodes while having lunch.
It turns out that Ree Drummond is small but tough, and can deftly handle her share of ranch chores. She also comes up with some interesting dishes that are of as much interest to city slickers as they are to ranch dwellers. I have saved a couple of her recipes already.
And it’s not just cowboys who enjoy her cooking. She cooks for her young boys, her teenage daughters, the folks in town, and senior citizen parents. Ree offers as much variety in her recipes as any of the other cooking shows that I watch. The Pioneer Woman won’t be on the list of cooking shows I record each week, but I will pay attention to what Ree is up to.
