1. Ree Drummond makes amazing food!
No really... So yummy! I know it seems like I'm stating the obvious, but if you haven't checked out any of her cookbooks, please rectify that immediately. Every one
of her recipes that I've made or tasted has been incredible. My mother in law made her recipe for sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. They were amazing.
2. She is normal.She is a wife and a mom...she likes to cook...and she made a career of it. My husband and I love to watch her cooking show because it features all those fabulous recipes, but also shows this normal, dedicated woman taking care of her family. She is practical and makes meals that families can actually make during the week and enjoy together.
3. She is a book nerd.
I read her book a few years ago before I really knew much about her. And, I have to say, it made me fall in love with her! Such a fun story of how she and her husband met--and you know I love a good love story!
Lots of folks know about Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, and all of her awesome cookbooks, but did you know that she also has kids' books?! That's right, and Charlie the Ranch Dog is the star!
I love the picture book...but I really love the I Can Read books too! The illustations by Diane deGroat are just precious
I'm not normally one to rave about celebrity authored books. Not that some of them aren't great...it's just that I feel like their celebrity provides them with more than enough publicity while there are other super talented authors who would kill for a little exposure. I'm making an exception for the accidental country girl Ree, however. She wrote long before she was a celebrity--and like I said, I love her!
