“The Pioneer Woman” star Ree Drummond is gearing up for the festive period with her expertise and recent updates showed her giving fans insider tips, recipes and hacks on how to go about successful festive delicacies.

The star noted that she would ready her non-perishable food items and also chop some of the perishables like onions, celery, and carrots keeping in mind to preserve them.

Drummond reminded fans that kitchen faux pas were inevitable.


The food blogger knows not to opt for perfection when making a festive meal. She noted that it was good to have fun in the kitchen without tasking oneself with the need for perfect meals. The mom-of-four addressed fans:

“Sometimes, things burn or get overcooked or just don’t end up looking as pretty as you want them to — and that’s perfectly okay. Your family will be happy to eat what you’ve made…”


The food star kept it real as she noted that she had burned things too and the best thing to do was work with a timer. Regardless of this tip, Drummond reminded fans that kitchen faux pas were inevitable.

The top web celebrity included hacks for when things went wrong. She noted that when a food item gets burned, once could get out the good parts and continue working with it. Over cooked beets could also be converted into some “sorts of salad.”


Joining efforts with People, Drummond crafted delicacies that fans could opt for during Thanksgiving Day. The “Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl” writer listed buttered rosemary rolls which she described as something made with little or no strains.

The star mom shared that she loved how rosemary rolls looked like they were served at a farm-to-table restaurant. Fans were also treated to a detailed list of steps and ingredients for the delicacy.


Earlier this month, Drummond joined today to share some of her quarantine recipes which she listed in her new book, “Frontier Follies: Adventures in Marriage and Motherhood in the Middle of Nowhere.”

Some yummy meals off her book include the Green Chile and Cheddar Cornbread muffins, Garlic bread, drip beef sandwich, and the love robot chilli among many others.
