First, let me say, that this is a great book - typical Ree - showcasing recipes, with step by step instructions and pictures (that go along to show each step) for producing said recipes, and if you are new to this game or have a lot of people to cook for, then I highly recommend this!

However, as someone who has read pretty much everything she has ever produced, I found some of the recipes to be repeats. Also, most of her recipes are for 6-8 or 8-10 services. There are very few recipe

I have to say that I am disappointed. My favorite cookbook is the first one, The Pioneer Woman Cooks, followed by The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A year of Holidays. I have bought all five hard copies and I am sad to say this is my last.

The recipes are uninspiring and there are only a handful that I thought might be good, but they seem forgettable. Animal cookies, pop tarts, egg salad a million ways, fried red tomatoes (not in the South, honey), Spiked spa water, seriously?! There are a lot

I really like many of her early recipes and some have become standards for me. But this one has little to offer, I think. This feels like she's grasping to come up with new ideas by throwing things together. and her good ol' cowgirl (homeschooling, football, ranchin' and jeezus) shtick is becoming tiresome. I'm disappointed.

These cookbooks are always beautiful and entertaining. The recipes, for the most part, didn’t seem to ring my bell as much as the other Pioneer Woman cookbooks, but I still enjoyed reading it.

I just love Ree. You just want to be her friend and sit down and have a meal with her and her family. There were not any recipes in this book that I would make but I loved reading about them and looking at the pics.

3.5 stars because pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. Otherwise, I found most recipes to be pretty blasé and uninspired. For a cookbook with over 100 recipes, there were very few I would want to try out and see if they’re good enough for my usual rotation.

I loved her first two cookbooks, and this really doesn't stack up that well compared to them. I still lover her conversational tone, and hearing about her family and daily life (which has also changed a lot). But these recipes aren't as homey; they're more modern, but not truly modern - modern-for-Ree, which isn't really the Ree I expect. The drinks chapter was kind of a throwaway; I liked the appetizers and seafood best. Her pictures are still great; and her tone is very warm; but I don't know ...more

Rainy Day books had Ree Drummond appear for a talk at the Unity Temple located on the Plaza in Kansas City, MO. We paid to attend the event and got a signed copy of this book as we left. As her two daughters have flew the nest to attend college and the dynamics of the ranch are now a man cave the style of cooking is also changing. She tried KETO for a short time and has incorporated some low carb recipes - she said she quit because it was making her hate many of the foods she loved before the di ...more

This is the first, and maybe only, time I will ever say that a cookbook has TOO MANY pictures. I did not like the layout of the instructions with one hundred photos, and a lot of the photos were of a 90’s cookbook quality. To be fair, I only picked this up at the library because it was new, not because I love her recipes. I do have a few from her early years that we have adapted and use frequently (the Marlboro man sandwiches became a meal we serve over rice). I wasn’t wowed by anything, but was ...more

First off, I must say I'm a huge Pioneer Woman fan! But, sadly, this cook book was not great. I've seen almost all of the recipes on her food network show already, but they are supposed to be new. I found 4 recipes that I would like to try. That's it. Sorry, Ree I still love you! I will say that the pictures and the steps are very clear and helpful. This would be a good cookbook for people who aren't great cooks and need help the whole way. I'm glad I didn't buy this and just checked it out at t ...more

I've always loved Ree Drummond and her show and recipes, but many of them are so high calorie that you would need to be working cattle all day to eat like that. However, in The New Frontier many of her recipes are healthier, lower-carb, etc. while still including more indulgent recipes as well. And as is her cookbook signature, all the recipes have tons of step-by-step photographs to go along with the instructions. There are definitely a few recipes I'd like to try. Overall, another great cookbook by Th ...more

Typical Ree...and I mean that in only the best possible way. Beautiful book, beautiful food, beautiful life, beautiful lady and family. I had the pleasure of having my book signed by The Pioneer Woman herself, on the CA leg of her book tour. Ree was even prettier in person, and could not have been any nicer or more gracious if she tried.

I wish her all the success in the world. She’s certainly earned it and deserves every bit it.

Pictures of recipes? Yes.
Commentary on recipes? Yes.
Nutrition facts? No.
Recipe Style? Midwestern with a lot of Tex-Mex influences.
Any keepers? No.

Not my favorite PW cookbook. This one seems to include a lot more vegetable centered dishes, which makes it seem a bit healthier than some of her others.

I enjoyed this. Some of the recipes are a little outlandish that I wouldn't make, but most of them are the same delicious sort of recipes I expect to get from Ree! Will update when I've actually cooked some of the recipes.

I almost didn’t buy this book because of some of the reviews. However last night after looking through it in the store, I decided to buy it. I absolutely love it and I cannot put it down. I have not made anything out of it yet, but I will as soon as I can. Meanwhile I am enjoying reading it.

There are not as many recipes in this most recent cookbook that I will add into my regular rotation as in previous books but there are a few which I truly enjoyed.

Love all her books. Not just good recipes but great family things to do and cute stories about her family....

Great recipes as always. I enjoyed all the stories that go with the recipes. I also like that many recipes have options to prepare them traditionally, with a slow cooker or with an Instant Pot.

It’s a beautiful book and there are some recipes in it. Over the years she’s adjusted herself to carb craze, instant pots and lighter foods. I enjoy Ree. There are a few recipes I might try.

Not the same

I have every cookbook she has written and enjoy many of the recipes. This one is not my favorite as I do not use a crock pot or an instant book.

The photographs are beautiful and it's nice to have step-by-step pictures.
But, there aren't too many recipes in this book that my family would eat...
