The Pioneer Woman
I am making a prediction that we will be seeing lots more of this lady. Her name is Ree Drummond. She has a blog called The Pioneer Woman and a cookbook titled The Pioneer Woman Cooks.
I first became aware of Ree when Southern Living recently did a piece on her. It was not long before I was flipping channels and saw her again selling cookbooks on QVC.
You have got to look at her blog! It has beautiful photos, interesting stories about her life on an Oklahoma ranch, and hearty recipes.
Ree is a former city girl, married to a rancher. She has four children that they homeschool, because the commute to the closest school is so far. Ree tells about their life with humor and creativity. She bucks sterotypes of the rural housewife by being stylish and cool. Ree's blog has a huge following, and I think she may just be the next big thing in the cooking world. I am betting she gets her own Food Network show someday!
