The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier

The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Well, I'm definitely in the minority here. The Pioneer Woman Cooks has 586 customer reviews on Amazon and 480 people gave her 5 stars.

For my money, though (and I'm glad I didn't spend any ) this is a book to be looked at once and then taken back to the library. There is nothing here I would care to make, the recipes are way more complicated than they need to be, and the quantity of photos is ridiculous. I mean, seriously, do you really need a picture of how to mix dry ingredients together? Of how to pour broth? They're also laid out funny, in my opinion. I kept trying to follow them left to right, but the pictures read top to bottom. Oh, well.

If you're a big fan of the Pioneer Woman, or if you just like to collect cookbooks, you might want this book. But even her biggest fans report that all of these recipes are available on her website.
