Ree Drummond transformed herself from a city girl into a country wife in the name of love. When she’s not busy wrangling her four kids, she spends a lot of time in the kitchen, and her blog is entertaining and instructional. Not only does she post recipes, but she also includes photos for each stage of the cooking process. That’s great for those of us who can barely boil water for tea, let alone make flank stake or monkey bread. The Pioneer Woman will help you cook wings, chili con queso, and Pasta alla Marlboro Man for your cowboy, as well as cauliflower soup and risotto for your inner cowgirl. Drummond’s laugh-out-loud prose and inspired cuisine make her blog a must-read for both the country mouse and the city mouse.
