The Pioneer Woman Cooks is finally out and it’s flying off the shelves like hotcakes! Lucky for us, we were able to secure a free copy of the cookbook from our amazing swag bag at the Blog Her Conference we spoke at. Her new cookbook is a fabulous stroll through her amazing life of working, living and raising kids on the ranch. It’s full of fabulous pictures of cows, horses, her kids, her recipes, her life and more cows. And more gorgeous horses.
The success of Ree Drummond’s cookbook isn’t a surprise because she’s proven to the publishing industry that you don’t have to be a professional chef to write a successful cookbook. Ree’s infectious humor, honesty, sincerity and love on her blog is proof enough that being kind and generous is life’s true virtues. The rest of the rewards just follow.
Ree has never claimed to be an expert in any field, in fact, she’s made fun of herself and her colorful faults on many occasions. When Ree spoke at BlogHer, everyone in that packed room knew that she was a real person, a caring Mother, a devoted wife and a blogger just like the rest of us. She’s a gentle soul, so normal, so real and so inspiring to many people that the lines to visit her at her cookbook signings have been as long as 4 hours!
The amazing thing about Ree is that she’s so generous with information and her dedication to building a supportive community is evident in everything she shares. Just look at her Photography posts and you’ll know how many people she’s helped in understanding photography and photoshop tutorials. Ree has proven that generosity, family and friends is all this “accidental country girl” needs to make her and all of us happy on her blog.
Speaking of her book “flying off the shelves like hotcakes”, we love hotcakes! Ree has an amazing and simple recipe for sour cream pancakes. It’s a tried and true sour cream pancake family recipe from her husband’s grandmother, Edna Mae. This sour cream pancake recipe makes such easy, perfect, light sour cream pancakes! These sour cream pancakes can be eaten any time of day. We made an addition to the recipe by adding our favorite bananas!
You must make these sour cream pancakes. They are so light, fluffy and only require 7 tablespoons of flour!
In fact, Ree’s new cookbook has many great breakfast recipes. Her wonderful breakfast recipes are great for lunch and dinner and we’re fans of eating backwards and having our breakfast for dinner. Thanks to Ree, we now can enjoy some typical morning meals in the evening!
