To kick off a new year of fun cookbooks I thought Ree Drummond's latest book, "The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays," would be the perfect choice.
About the Book:
This is a big, HEAVY, and absolutely gorgeous book that is filled with not only 140 of the most delicious recipes you'd ever want to try, but also with beautiful pictures of Ree Drummond's family, her Oklahoma ranch, and her life. This girl can cook, but she can also take photographs like no body's business!
I love how Ree's writing style is just like she would be sitting down (if this girl ever sits down!) and talking to you over a cup of coffee and a plate of her Dr. Pepper cupcakes. She writes about her kids, her dogs, her Marlboro Man husband, and their lives, all while sharing her incredible gift of creating meals that are both easy to fix and memorable.
This book is divided out into holidays, but the recipes could be fixed for any time of year! Some of my favorites included Coconut Ginger Baked French Toast, Red Velvet Pancakes (for Valentine's Day!) and Key Lime Pie for the Fourth of July. All the recipes are shown with step-by-step photos, making this cookbook perfect for beginning cooks as well as experienced ones.
I love all of Ree Drummond's cookbooks, but I think that "A Year of Holidays" is probably my favorite one so far! I highly recommend it!
