Title: The Pioneer Woman Cooks A Year of Holidays
Author: Ree Drummond
Genre: cookbook, non-fiction
After a stressful semester I needed a relaxing and quick read. I always seem to read cookbooks when stressed and the Pioneer Woman's new cookbook called out to me from the library's New Books section. I have never seen the Pioneer Woman show on the Food Network since we don't have cable and I have only read one other cookbook by her, but I do occasionally read her food blog and follow her on Facebook.
This is one of the few cookbooks where I wanted to make 90% of the recipes (usually I'm limited by my own food quirks and strawberry allergies). The food photography is gorgeous and is accompanied by Ree's down-to-earth writing style. Each step in the recipe has a thumbnail picture- why don't all cookbooks have this feature? It's literally mouth-watering.
