Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this celebration of rural America, web celeb Drummond, aka "The Pioneer Woman," tells warm-hearted stories. The food blogger-turned-Food Network star dedicates this humor-laced tale to her "funny family." She and Ladd, her "hunky husband," got off to a rocky start, contending with such rural Oklahoman realities as bobcats in the trash, skunks under the house, mice in the walls, and a tornado. They scare each other with rubber snakes, give up things like Dr. Pepper for Lent, and homeschool their kids. Endearingly, Drummond pokes fun at herself, noting that her cowboy husband weighs the same as he did in college while, as for her, she says, "No comment!" In one self-deprecating episode, she thinks a sushi chef wants her autograph, only to discover he actually just wants her to sign the credit-card receipt. As for family, her refined-looking mother-in-law matter-of-factly recounts a story about a bull who couldn't walk because his "dick was frozen to the ground," and her brother-in-law prepares fried calf nuts. Drummond makes it all seems wholesome. Grab a root beer and prepare to grin."
