Do you ever read cookbooks like novels? I do, and The Pioneer Woman’s cookbooks are perfect when you’re in that cozy mood to read about food, cooking and cattle.
Ree Drummond’s latest, The New Frontier,* (William Morrow, publisher) is 384 pages of glorious recipes, colorful photos and amusing anecdotes of her life on the ranch with her husband Ladd, kids, farm animals and dogs.
In her friendly, approachable style, Ree offers recipes for the hearty meals and comfort food we’ve come to love. The book also includes some meatless and lower-carb options that reflect her current lifestyle.
You could win a brand-new hardback copy of this fun book, just in time for the cooler temperatures of autumn and hunkering down at home this winter. (UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to the winner, Laura S.)
Here are some of the photos and recipes that made me swoon.
Let’s just start with a GIANT cinnamon roll baked in a cast iron skillet. It’s finished off with an icing that contains butter, maple syrup and a dash of strong coffee. Yes, 100 times YES!
Fluffy homemade flapjacks bookend this hearty homemade bacon-egg-and-cheese breakfast sandwich:
Here’s another sandwich to dream about, featuring bread slices cooked “egg in a hole” style layered with tomato, lettuce, ham slices and pepper jack cheese:
Lettuce wraps and egg salad merge in a tasty, low-carb “eggs-plosion” of flavor:
A medley of Teriyaki Grilled Vegetables includes zucchini, yellow squash, bell peppers, onion and asparagus:

Here’s a chocolate chunk cookie stuffed with a sweet, creamy peanut butter filling that I can’t wait to bake!
And finally, photos of sweet cows!
With 112 new recipes, The New Frontier* by Ree Drummond is a great addition to your cookbook library and would also make a fun holiday gift for your favorite food-lovin’ friend.
