The Pioneer Woman Cooks

Oh, don’t get me wrong. I adore breakfast. I love lunch! But dinnertime definitely tops them all. It’s the time of day when we reunite with our sweeties, our kids, our friends, our parents . . . and catch up on the events of the day over something mouthwatering and delicious. Dinnertime anchors us, nourishes us, and reassures us. It’s the greatest meal of the day!

 The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime is a beloved collection of all the scrumptious supper recipes that make their way through my kitchen in regular rotation, from main dish salads to satisfying soups to hearty casseroles to comfort food classics . . . and everything in between. I lay out all the different ways I tackle dinner in my house, from super-quick 16-Minute Meals to make-ahead Freezer Food to irresistible pastas and a bundle of brand-new favorites of my crew.

You’ll want to immediately dive into surefire hits like Tomato Soup with Parmesan Croutons, Buffalo Chicken Salad, Baked Ziti, and Shrimp Scampi. But just wait till you try the Cashew Chicken, French Dip Sandwiches, Chicken Marsala, and Beef Stroganoff. And don’t even get me started on the Tomato Tart, Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce, and Pan-Fried Pork Chops. You’ll have a very tough time deciding on a favorite!

To take away the guesswork, I made sure to include all the step-by-step recipe photos I love to share, and I packed as much deliciousness into each chapter as possible. My hope is that you will turn to this book regularly to solve your dinnertime dilemmas, and that you will use these recipes to feed your family time and time again. The more stains, smudges, and smears on the pages, the better!

Enjoy dinnertime in your household, friends!

    There are a few freezer prep recipes and one soup I'll be trying, but nothing too exciting. This may be a good cookbook for a young mom or wife looking for a mix of early prep, quick and comfort food.The step by step instructions are particularly helpful, but the design and layout of t...

    This is a pretty good cookbook. She's still keeping dishes fairly simple but branching out a bit with more exotic ingredients, which I sometimes believe is not the best thing especially since she claims to be out in the wilderness. Many of her recipes are Tex-Mex inspired. I understand...

    Kirsten *Make Margaret Atwood Fiction Again!"

    I didn't exactly read this, but I did look at every page and ever photo and every recipe. Ms Drummond produces lovely cookbooks. Plenty of color photographs and good explanations of every step in the process. She even includes lists of things you should always keep in your pantry. It w...

    Another great cookbook of recipes that can be classified as "heart attack on a plate". Her cookbooks are nicely done with great pictures and step by step instructions. ...

    Besides offering helpful, practical recipes to solve the eternal dilemma of what's for supper, this cookbook is downright entertaining to read. I mean, laugh-out-loud funny at times. Drummond has some serious writing talent, especially humor. Several keeper recipes. Recommended! ...

    After completing a whopping 58 recipes out of this cookbook (list of all recipes below with individual ratings), only 3 recipes were ones I wouldn't make again and a total of 20 made it into my personal recipe box! For those who say Ree only produces butter heavy, heart-attack recipes,...

    I think Ree has quit trying. Here are some of her 'recipes':Chili Dogs. The Bread (which is one loaf of bread smeared with butter and broiled)At least 3 pasta recipes that are little more than marinara, pasta and cheese.My 13 year old daughter received this as a Christmas gift and she ...
