Television personality Ree Drummond is well-known for her cooking. However, there are things you still do not know about her.

It would be an understatement to describe Drummond a lady of many talents. To give some examples of the things on her resume, she is an acclaimed blogger, a bestselling author, and has her own show on Food Network called "The Pioneer Woman."

In any case, between all of her numerous ventures, the star lives a generally peaceful life on her ranch in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. To honor our adoration for Drummond, we have rounded up some unknown facts you probably not have known about her.

SHE HOMESCHOOLED HER CHILDREN

Drummond and Ladd homeschool their children in parts of the summer. Speaking about her choice to homeschool their kids, she explained that albeit a long way from town has its advantage, having Alex, Paige, Bryce, and Todd go through as much as three hours on a school transport every day didn't appear to be very right to her.
