The Pioneer Woman – A Year Of Holidays Cookbook Giveaway!

The Pioneer Woman - A Year Of Holidays Cookbook Giveaway!

You all know my undying adoration of The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. I met her last year at BlogHer and literally almost passed out. Ask Rebecca (another amazing cook), I think by the time Ree and her girls came through the door she might have been googling nearby hospitals to take me to.

Anyway. Her new cookbook was just launched yesterday (one of many) and I’ve had it for a few weeks and been able to look it over.

Pioneer Woman Cookbook-1

Pioneer Woman Cookbook-5

Basically it’s amazing.

Pioneer Woman Cookbook-4

It has menus and recipes for holidays during the year – all planned out. No guesswork, no wondering what you’re going to fix for picky eaters. Pages and pages of gorgeous, creative, easy to fix food with step by step guides. You know she’s famous for those pictures that make putting things together so much easier for us visual learners.

Pioneer Woman Cookbook-3

There have been nights I curl up with the book on the couch with hot tea and just – browse, fall in love, and then figure out if it’s too late to attempt to fix the cravings I now have with something subpar from my pantry.

Pioneer Woman Cookbook-2

So while I’m totally in love with it (and already planned Thanksgiving and Christmas – both eve and day) – I also want you guys to love it too.

You can not only win one of THREE, but the copy you get will be signed by Ree herself and shipped to you.


A huge congrats to Ree on the beautiful book. You can find her cooking on the Food Network (my parents just love her and watch religiously), and her blog.

Good luck everyone!

    I had a mother who screamed, not kidding, literally screamed, at us if we went into the kitchen.

I could definitely use this!

  195. Really?!? I guess I should give it another look

  230. I can cook pretty well when I want to. But I have an irrational fear of accidentally poisoning people with food (despite the fact I have never, in my life, poisoned anybody), so I don’t cook for other people. It’s weird, I know. So we just get Cracker Barrel’s take-out holiday meals. :)

  231. Melanie Cazin says:

    Our family has been spread all around the country/world this year. Some years are just like that I guess. This holiday season feels like time to settle in and finally be HOME.

  232. I love to cook for all the holidays (especially Christmas), but would love to find something really special to start as our traditional Christmas Eve dinner.

  233. I love to cook most for Thanksgiving. Last year was our first without my mom (who always did all of the cooking) but I like to think I’m honoring her well by following in her footsteps. I also love, love, love the Pioneer Woman. We went to her book signing in Boston for her last cookbook, but just couldn’t quite make October 30th work out for a 2hr drive to Boston to get this one signed…

  234. Awesome!! I definitely need help with Thanksgiving – I have never once in my life actually made a Thanksgiving dinner all on my own, and I’m in my late 30’s. LOVE Pioneer Woman – her Cornmeal Pancakes are a staple in our house. :)
