The Food Network's new show, "The Pioneer Woman" will star best-selling cookbook author and blogger Ree Drummond. Shot on location at her family’s Oklahoma ranch, The Pioneer Woman premieres Saturday, August 27 at 11:30 a.m.(Eastern and Pacific Time).
In keeping with her popular blog, "The Pioneer Woman," Drummond will serve up a slice of frontier life along with the “accidental country girl’s” step-by-step recipes for creating wholesome, hearty family meals and elegant menus for entertaining.
Before the on-air premiere, fans will have a chance to get a sneak peek of footage from the premiere episode beginning Aug. 22 on www.foodnetwork.com/pioneerwoman. Among the dishes she'll whip up are Lemon Blueberry Pancakes for son Todd's birthday breakfast and Perfect Pot Roast for a Sunday family dinner. In between culinary conquests, Ree takes time to wrangle horses, compete in a shooting contest with her husband Ladd (aka “The Marlboro Man”), have fun with her four adorable kids and try to keep Charlie the basset hound out of trouble.
Over the past five years, Drummond has chronicled her life as a city-gal-turned-rancher’s-wife on her food and lifestyle blog, ThePioneerWoman.com. It attracts over 20 million page views per month and was named Weblog of the Year at the 2011, 2010, and 2009 Bloggie Awards. She is also author of “The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl” and the 2011 memoir “Black Heels to Tractor Wheels—A Love Story,” which opened at #2 on The New York Times Best Seller list for nonfiction hardcover.
Ree’s children’s picture book, “Charlie the Ranch Dog,” which chronicles the adventures of her much-beloved Basset Hound, also premiered at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list.
