PDubGiveaway
See that puppy (Charlie, is his name) and those gorgeous horses? Those are just a few of the animals on the working cattle ranch that Ree captures on a regular basis through the lens of her camera. I reviewed The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond a while back when I made her Beans and Cornbread. I gushed about how much I love her cookbook, for the simplicity of her recipes, for her snarky humor, for her amazing photography, for the endearing characters that are her family, and most of all for the writing. Ree’s cookbook reads like a novel that’s tough to put down. It’s worth having in your collection, even if you’re not much of a cook. I find myself continuing to pull it out and look at it some more, sure that I missed something the first time around.

Here are two keeper recipes I’ve recently made using The Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook:
Linguini with Clam Sauce
My family loved the Linguini with Clam Sauce.  I lightened Ree’s recipe up slightly (and added lots of Parmesan too).   This recipe can be found HERE.
Red Velvet Cake
I turned PW’s Red Velvet Cake into a bundt, and drizzled it with a cinnamon-cream cheese glaze.  The teachers at my son’s school got this for a treat at a recent holiday luncheon.  Good feedback from the teachers (they said it was yummy!)  This recipe can be found HERE.

Ree has generously offered TEN of her cookbooks to give away to RecipeGirl readers! Here are the details…
