    First, let me say, that this is a great book - typical Ree - showcasing recipes, with step by step instructions and pictures (that go along to show each step) for producing said recipes, and if you are new to this game or have a lot of people to cook for, then I highly recommend this!However, as someone who has read pretty much everything she has ever produced, I found some of the recipes to be repeats. Also, most of her recipes are for 6-8 or 8-10 services. There are very few recipe First, let me say, that this is a great book - typical Ree - showcasing recipes, with step by step instructions and pictures (that go along to show each step) for producing said recipes, and if you are new to this game or have a lot of people to cook for, then I highly recommend this!However, as someone who has read pretty much everything she has ever produced, I found some of the recipes to be repeats. Also, most of her recipes are for 6-8 or 8-10 services. There are very few recipes that only serves 4, and while I do cook, I don't necessarily cook well enough to figure out how to divvy up the ingredients to produce smaller servings. Yes, for some recipes, Ree has included suggestions for leftovers, but not most, and with the large number of servings, I would be eating leftovers, forever!Also, as someone who does Weight Watchers, I kept looking at some of her recipes trying to figure out what I could substitute for some of her more "pointed" ingredients. Now, I know that Ree and her large family own and live on a large ranch (no ground turkey, here), so, like I said ... large servings, Ree has you covered! On a more positive note, Ree uses an Instant Pot for some recipes - I don't have one of these, but have been contemplating purchasing one, so she did provide some basic and important information about this, and I did photocopy this information for future reference. Still a beautiful book to look at, if you have the time.

    I have to say that I am disappointed. My favorite cookbook is the first one, The Pioneer Woman Cooks, followed by The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A year of Holidays. I have bought all five hard copies and I am sad to say this is my last.The recipes are uninspiring and there are only a handful that I thought might be good, but they seem forgettable. Animal cookies, pop tarts, egg salad a million ways, fried red tomatoes (not in the South, honey), Spiked spa water, seriously?! There are a lot I have to say that I am disappointed.

There are a lot of misses with this one and a definite departure from the country cooking her brand was built on. I love her brand, but this is my last cookbook.

    I really like many of her early recipes and some have become standards for me. But this one has little to offer, I think. This feels like she's grasping to come up with new ideas by throwing things together. and her good ol' cowgirl (homeschooling, football, ranchin' and jeezus) shtick is becoming tiresome. I'm disappointed.

    These cookbooks are always beautiful and entertaining. The recipes, for the most part, didn’t seem to ring my bell as much as the other Pioneer Woman cookbooks, but I still enjoyed reading it.

    I just love Ree. You just want to be her friend and sit down and have a meal with her and her family. There were not any recipes in this book that I would make but I loved reading about them and looking at the pics.

    3.5 stars because pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. Otherwise, I found most recipes to be pretty blasé and uninspired. For a cookbook with over 100 recipes, there were very few I would want to try out and see if they’re good enough for my usual rotation.

    I loved her first two cookbooks, and this really doesn't stack up that well compared to them. I still lover her conversational tone, and hearing about her family and daily life (which has also changed a lot). But these recipes aren't as homey; they're more modern, but not truly modern - modern-for-Ree, which isn't really the Ree I expect. The drinks chapter was kind of a throwaway; I liked the appetizers and seafood best. Her pictures are still great; and her tone is very warm; but I don't know I loved her first two cookbooks, and this really doesn't stack up that well compared to them.

But again, while sandwiching a burger between two mushroom halves is a good idea, it's not original.Worth checking out if you're a fan, and some of the low carb stuff is worth trying if you're following that kind of diet. But otherwise, not really worthwhile.

There are also more vegetarian recipes offered. I was just talking to my mom wondering how to make a McGriddle and she has a recipe for that. Her mom had never used a crockpot and she is now learning how to incorporate into her kitchen along with the Instapot. I found several recipes that I am eager to try.

    This is the first, and maybe only, time I will ever say that a cookbook has TOO MANY pictures. I did not like the layout of the instructions with one hundred photos, and a lot of the photos were of a 90’s cookbook quality. To be fair, I only picked this up at the library because it was new, not because I love her recipes. I do have a few from her early years that we have adapted and use frequently (the Marlboro man sandwiches became a meal we serve over rice). I wasn’t wowed by anything, but was This is the first, and maybe only, time I will ever say that a cookbook has TOO MANY pictures.

    First off, I must say I'm a huge Pioneer Woman fan! But, sadly, this cook book was not great. I've seen almost all of the recipes on her food network show already, but they are supposed to be new. I found 4 recipes that I would like to try. That's it. Sorry, Ree I still love you! I will say that the pictures and the steps are very clear and helpful. This would be a good cookbook for people who aren't great cooks and need help the whole way.

    I've always loved Ree Drummond and her show and recipes, but many of them are so high calorie that you would need to be working cattle all day to eat like that. However, in The New Frontier many of her recipes are healthier, lower-carb, etc. while still including more indulgent recipes as well. And as is her cookbook signature, all the recipes have tons of step-by-step photographs to go along with the instructions. There are definitely a few recipes I'd like to try.

    Typical Ree...and I mean that in only the best possible way. Beautiful book, beautiful food, beautiful life, beautiful lady and family. I had the pleasure of having my book signed by The Pioneer Woman herself, on the CA leg of her book tour. Ree was even prettier in person, and could not have been any nicer or more gracious if she tried. I wish her all the success in the world. She’s certainly earned it and deserves every bit it.

    Pictures of recipes? Yes.Commentary on recipes? Yes.Nutrition facts? No.Recipe Style? Midwestern with a lot of Tex-Mex influences.Any keepers? No. Not my favorite PW cookbook. This one seems to include a lot more vegetable centered dishes, which makes it seem a bit healthier than some of her others.

    I enjoyed this. Some of the recipes are a little outlandish that I wouldn't make, but most of them are the same delicious sort of recipes I expect to get from Ree! Will update when I've actually cooked some of the recipes.

    I almost didn’t buy this book because of some of the reviews. However last night after looking through it in the store, I decided to buy it. I absolutely love it and I cannot put it down. I have not made anything out of it yet, but I will as soon as I can. Meanwhile I am enjoying reading it.

    It’s a beautiful book and there are some recipes in it. Over the years she’s adjusted herself to carb craze, instant pots and lighter foods. I enjoy Ree. There are a few recipes I might try.
