One of the reasons why people love The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond so much is that it seems like she could be your best friend. Many fans see her as filling the void left by Paula Deen when she fell out of favour in the food world – now Ree Drummond is the one everyone turns to for savoury comfort recipes steeped in tradition.
The Food Network star was never going to be famous. She innocently wrote a blog about life on the ranch in 2006 when one of her recipes went viral. One thing led to another, and eventually Ree Drummond had written a cookbook and was offered her own television show on the Food Network. Today, The Pioneer Woman is a household name.
Celebrity and fortune haven’t changed The Pioneer Woman too much. But she quickly gives the credit where it belongs, like insisting that her one recipe is better than everyone else’s.
Ree Drummond has so many mega-hit recipes
Almost everything that comes out of The Pioneer Woman’s kitchen is pure gold, which is a big part of why she became so famous. Ree Drummond combines years of experience with classic, comfort food recipes that are easy enough for almost anyone to prepare at home. Fans love her relaxed approach to cooking and serving.
Some of Ree Drummond’s top recipes include her chicken and noodle dish, the creamy mashed potatoes you’ll one day consume, her great iced coffee, basic lasagna, and of course the original steak recipe that caught her eye in the first place. But there is one special recipe from Drummond’s kitchen that stands out from the rest.
The Pioneer Woman said her cinnamon rolls are ‘the best in the world’
When it comes to her famous cinnamon rolls, Drummond knows her version is really good. In fact, she claims her recipe is the best you can find, period.
“I can say my cinnamon buns are the best in the world, and I thank my mother for that. It’s actually her recipe, so I can’t take all the credit,” she said in an interview with Design & Living.
And cinnamon rolls aren’t her only area of expertise. There were a few other items the Pioneer Woman makes that she considers better than average. “Anything quick, like a chocolate cake out of nowhere, no problem, total confidence,” she said. “Steak, all the predictable things I can pick up, no problem.”
