The Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Tortilla Soup

Print Friendly

(This giveaway has now ended.)

So there’s this woman. Her name is Ree. You might know her?

I’ll give you a hint! Her last name rhymes with Brummond and she’s married to a man who lives for cow poop and they have four punks (hey! her word, not mine) and they live on a huge ranch where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.

That’s riiiiight! The Pionee – oh my title already told you. Yeah.

Well, as the entire planet knows (and most likely Mars and Neptune) today is a really exciting day for Ree. Her second cookbook is released! I was one of the lucky bloggers who got an early copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier and I can’t even begin to describe to you the giddy pants dance I performed when I found it at my front door. I think it’s on YouTube somewhere. I’ll try and find it.

 

I just love her blouse.

 

So Gaby had this super fab idea of getting a few food bloggers together to host a virtual “Congratulations, Your Awesome Cookbook Is Released Today and You Should Totally Celebrate With Panty Hose on Your Head!” party for Ree by cooking something from it. And this is it! This is our party for you, Ree!

Are you wearing panty hose yet?

(psst! Giveaway at the bottom of this here post.)

 

THIS BOOK. Ugh, it’s such a gas to read, the step-by-steps are helpful and beautifully shot, and as you would expect, it’s perfectly decorated with her signature style, complete with lovely borders, pretty butterflies, pictures of the kids and cute little cowboy and cowgirl symbols indicating if the recipes are strong enough for a man, but ph balanced for a woman.

 

I’m already in love.

 

I can’t wait to meet Ree next week when I drive to Oklahoma in the middle of the night and break into her house and have french toast on the breakfast table and a creepy smile on my face when they wake up.

I am TOTALLY kidding!

I’ll be making breakfast burritos.

 

As you can tell, I chose her delicious chicken tortilla soup to party with today. Um, I took one bite and had to put on a wet suit so that I could snorkel in the pot for the next 5 hours.

Why don’t I live on a ranch?

I’d live in this dang soup, I tell you what.

MAKE IT. Your tongue will be born again.

And buy this book, for the LOVE. Your soul will fly like the wind.

And since I picked something out of the book that’s already on her site (DER) here’s the original link to the recipe! I think a few others did the same thing, so I don’t need to enroll in doofus camp this summer.

AND here are the links to the other lovely ladies participating in today’s virtual celebration with panty hose on our head. Thaaat might be just me. Cheers and big time congratulations, Ree!

    I love how she talks about her yoga pants-hilarious!

    • molly March 13, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

      well it’s not really a ree-ism, but i love how her youngest son compliments her food in every Food Network episode. It’s super-cute!

    • Hugh Blair March 15, 2012 at 1:35 am #

      I love the way she loves her dogs.

  2. Blog is the New Black March 13, 2012 at 9:23 am #

    This soup sounds of out this world! Love Ree!

  3. Melissa March 13, 2012 at 10:14 am #

    I have NOT made this soup yet..but now I think I definitely need to! My fave Ree-ism is that she always makes reference to her ‘pink lobster claw’ in pictures. It’s so ridiculous.

  4. amy marantino March 13, 2012 at 10:18 am #

    i like how she makes cracks when she forgets something in her cast of characters (ingredients photo)

  5. Caroline @ chocolate & carrots March 13, 2012 at 10:32 am #

    I love the way she isn’t afraid to share who she is. She is hilarious! :D

  6. Elizabeth March 13, 2012 at 10:49 am #

    Burgundy Mushrooms!

  7. Jen S March 13, 2012 at 11:01 am #

    The first time I heard Ree call her kids ‘punks’ I realized how perfect a description it is for our kids! I still giggle inside every time I read it.

  8. Shannon P March 13, 2012 at 11:06 am #

    I love all the nicknames she gives herself – pdub, pwiddy, etc!

  9. Val March 13, 2012 at 11:15 am #

    I too love her down-to-earthness!! And her cinnamon roll recipe!

  10. lori p March 13, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    I love all her nicknames for her family…marlboro man, pdub….i love her total “normal-ness”-just being herself….she is a gem!

  11. Cassie March 13, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    I love Ree’s sense of humor and her flowy peasant tops. Not really Ree-isms but it’s what I love about her. I love that you used Boulevard Pilsner, it’s a staple in our house!

  12. Stefanie March 13, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    Amen. I love when she says Amen. Means it is so important! HA HA HA!!

  13. Heather March 13, 2012 at 11:32 am #

    Her self-effacing, keepin’-it-real humor is wonderful – especially about her Spanx. ;)

  14. Katie March 13, 2012 at 11:40 am #

    I like how she isn’t afraid to share how much she dislikes bananas – most chefs won’t own up to not looking a particular food, but she does!

  15. carrie s. March 13, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    I love how she signs her posts. Pwiddy is my favorite.

  16. Aimee @ ShugarySweets March 13, 2012 at 11:42 am #

    I love when she says “NOT” like we are back in 1989 again :) Good times, good times! Your soup and pictures look beautiful, as always Bev!

  17. Karen Haynes March 13, 2012 at 11:59 am #

    Her sense of humor, it is contagious!

  18. KarenM March 13, 2012 at 12:01 pm #

    I love all the funny things she says about her dog Charlie!! love all of her recipes!

  19. Michelle March 13, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

    Big Chocolate Birthday Cake!

  20. Christine March 13, 2012 at 12:10 pm #

    Everything she writes is wonderful. I cannot even begin to pick just one! It is the first website I go to in the morning.

  21. Meagan Wied March 13, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

    You have to love everything about Ree. From the kids, to Marlboro Man and of course Charlie the wonderful dog we love everything!

  22. Jenn from HealthiFood.blogspot.com March 13, 2012 at 12:20 pm #

    I loved when she says “enforced with a wooden spoon”!

  23. oh magada March 13, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

  27. Jenn March 13, 2012 at 12:38 pm #

    She’s a funny gal, with a great heart and a wonderful hand in the kitchen!

  28. Kelly March 13, 2012 at 12:39 pm #

  29. kelly March 13, 2012 at 12:40 pm #

  30. Celeste B. March 13, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    I love how she has nicknames for everyone…including the fur kids.

  31. Jennifer | Mother Thyme March 13, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    This soup is beautiful! I love Chicken Tortilla Soup, definitely need to try this recipe. I love Ree! She is a great inspiration, an amazing cook and I just love her way of life. I can’t wait to get my hands on her cookbook, it looks fabulous!

  32. Stacie Bee March 13, 2012 at 12:46 pm #

    I love the nicknames she calls her family.

  33. rachel e. March 13, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    I love how she always makes fun of her self. That is a great personality trait!

  34. Tori O. March 13, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

    I love her posts about her dogs, also make me laugh :)

  35. Ashley Wright March 13, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    I think my favorite phrase I ever read was, “my back fat it violent.” I die!

  36. Lisa Russo March 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

    Ree’s chicken tortilla soup is a winter staple in our house – everyone LOVES it!

  37. Theresa March 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

    I like how she calls herself different nicknames, Pdub Diddy etc. When people ask me for a recipe (because they just tasted something amazing I made of hers) I like to say “Oh it’s P-diddy’s or Pdubs”- the look on their faces is priceless!

  38. Jillian March 13, 2012 at 12:53 pm #

    I love her sense of humor! (Alien hands, anyone?)

  39. Cyndi March 13, 2012 at 12:55 pm #

    I always crack up about her “alien hand”!

  40. Janet R March 13, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

    Ree is great! Love your blog too!
    Isn’t it neat that Ree isn’t afraid to share all that she is – strengths and weaknesses alike! And she KNOWS FOOD! Thanks for a generous giveaway!

  41. Jacqui March 13, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

    I love and always crack up at how she refers to her hands as “pink alien hands” or claws hahaha she cracks me up!!!!

  42. Nancy p. March 13, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    I like how she is so down to earth.

  43. Misty Lynn March 13, 2012 at 1:03 pm #

    I refer to my kids as punks too. That’s probably my favorite Ree-ism.

  44. Kate H March 13, 2012 at 1:03 pm #

    She’s a riot!

  45. leah sparks March 13, 2012 at 1:05 pm #

    I love that she made a blog for the dog… Love dogs, used to have a Beagle.

  46. Jessica KW March 13, 2012 at 1:06 pm #

    I love when she says something will make your skirt fly up. Then I know it’s going to be good!

  47. Linda March 13, 2012 at 1:06 pm #

    I laughed so hard, had tears rolling down my cheeks when I read her story about I only wanted a donut!

  48. Allison C March 13, 2012 at 1:06 pm #

    I love all the nicknames she has come up with. Hilarious.

  49. Karen March 13, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    I love her sense of humor and how she doesn’t take herself too seriously.

  50. Julie Haan March 13, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I love how Ree refers to her husband as “Marlboro Man”. Thanks for the giveaway!

  51. Sandy B March 13, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

    All of her “isms” referring to the amimals – especially Charlie & Walter!!!

  52. Tara H March 13, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

    Her sarcasm and wit as she give directions for making her recipes.

  53. Hannah J March 13, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    When she talks about her fingers or hands… lobster claw!

  54. Melissa March 13, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    It might be how she talks about her non-muscle toned white legs, lol, i can totally relate!!

  55. Tracy J. March 13, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    Not sure if this is a Ree-ism, but I love it when she says that a recipe makes her skirt fly up. Makes me picture her holding the best apple pie ever while standing on her porch, pulling a Marilyn Monroe when the prairie wind blows.

  56. Victoria Sterry March 13, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    Dubbing her man ” The Marlboro Man”. I love to watch the love they share

  57. Brenda March 13, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    “So good it’ll make your skirt fly up”.

  58. Andrea the Kitchen Witch March 13, 2012 at 1:16 pm #

    I love how she takes her food so seriously and yet makes it family friendly. And I love her dog :)

  59. Debbie Farrar March 13, 2012 at 1:16 pm #

    There is no particular Ree-ism i like. I just love the way she comes off. I feel like I could walk into her home and we have been friends forever. Ree is so down-to-earth.

  60. Melanie March 13, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

    I love how she has nicknames for everyone!

  61. Andrea March 13, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

    I love how she talks about her pink alien hands and chipped polish. I can SO relate!

  62. Shondra Brown March 13, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

    I love who she is constantly keeping us up to date on all the animals!

  63. Sunnie March 13, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    I love how funny she is, her pictures, her recipes and the way she can make fun of herself.

  64. Krysten O March 13, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    I love love love all the movie quizzes she does via Twitter and her random train of thought. Also, I love how much she loves her dogs!

  65. Cheryl Stoy March 13, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    “Enforced with a wooden spoon” used it frequently around the kids…

  66. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray March 13, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    I love how much she loves her family! That always makes me happy. :)

  67. Ladette March 13, 2012 at 1:21 pm #

    I love how Ree talks about butter — how bad it is, but how we all love it!! the kind of stuff. Calling her kids punks and her lobster claw hand is hilarious too.

  68. Liz March 13, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    I love her Mike stories! They make my day. She is amazing and she taught me how to cook.

  69. Kim W. March 13, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    She has such a way with words – all of her little sayings are cute!

  70. CarolinaGirl March 13, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    Love how she calls her kids punks!

  71. Sarah Marie March 13, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    I love it when she become preacher Ree and throws out an AMEN!

  72. Crystal C. March 13, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    i love how she talks about her animals especially charlie. she always makes the funniest comments about him and makes me laugh. actually she makes me laugh with everything that she says. she is awesome! let me know when you are heading to her house to break in and make breakfast burritos! i will make the salsa! :)

  73. Rachael March 13, 2012 at 1:24 pm #

    I love when she says “don’t be like me” because no matter what I still want to be like her! What a fabulous life

  74. Amy @ The Savvy Kitchen March 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm #

    I like that she’s not afraid to make fun of herself. It’s a great trait to have!

  75. Richelle March 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm #

    the alien-hand-lobster-claw-isms always make me laugh.

  76. Camille Gerbyshak March 13, 2012 at 1:27 pm #

    I love that she uses the word “groady,” it reminds me of when I was growing up and that was a frequently used word that you don’t hear much anymore!

  77. Robin March 13, 2012 at 1:28 pm #

    It’ll make your skirt fly up. who the heck wears skirts any more??? But I read it, I see the one cowgal on her website, and I can totally relate to how good something is. LOL

  78. Rori March 13, 2012 at 1:29 pm #

    I love when she makes lists!

  79. Ashton March 13, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism is when she is cooking with whiskey and she says she grabbed it from her bedside table!

  80. Betty G March 13, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    I’ve recently discovered Pioneer Woman and I’m IN LOVE with her pizza crust recipe. I have a bowl in the fridg right now just waiting to be made up. This soup looks great too! It’s nice of you and the other bloggers to throw this virtual party:).

  81. Rene March 13, 2012 at 1:33 pm #

    i don’t really have a favorite Ree-ism. I just like her general friendly tone and the way she loves to have a laugh — even if it’s at herself. (like the story about the donut case shattering)

  82. Jenn M March 13, 2012 at 1:33 pm #

    I love that she has nicknames for all her family members! Her Hubby’s is my favorite!

  83. Emily March 13, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

    I love it when she says “trust me” because I do trust her!! She hasn’t led me astray in the kitchen yet:)

  84. Urban Wife March 13, 2012 at 1:37 pm #

    Ree is hilarious. (So are you, Bev!) One of my fav Ree-isms is when she says “Enforced with a wooden spoon”. I totally use that with my husband all the time.

  85. Kel March 13, 2012 at 1:37 pm #

    I like the phrase “it will make your skirt fly up”!

  86. Marley March 13, 2012 at 1:38 pm #

    I love how she inserts random movie quotes into her blogs….it is amazing the amount of movies she has memorized!

  87. Renee' R March 13, 2012 at 1:38 pm #

    I love Charlie and how she loves her family.

  88. Karie Weiss March 13, 2012 at 1:39 pm #

    I love everything about Ree :) She’s so funny. I don’t know how to choose a favorite! I love the way she signs off her blogs in a different way every time.

  89. Natalie @ Cooking for My Kids March 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

    I love how she calls her children her punks in an extremely affectionate, motherly, awesome way…because I lovingly refer to my littles as “punks of junk” when they are being especially punkalicious. :)

  90. Nina March 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

    Like a true mother, no matter her children’s ages, she calls her kids “babies”! It’s so sweet. I love her sense of humor!

  91. Leslie Swintz March 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

    I love the nicknames that she has given everyone…Especially her punk-ass little sister! Cracks me up everytime!

  92. Sharon H March 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

    I love when she says something will make your skirt fly up!

  93. Liss Vasquez March 13, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

    pink alien claw!

  94. Darcy March 13, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

    Her run on sentences. Because after I read them, and then she says it’s a run on sentence, I think to myself, “Huh, I never would have thought that was a run on sentence!”. Maybe I missed that day in 5th grade English?

  95. Krissy's Creations March 13, 2012 at 1:45 pm #

    How exciting! I’ve been waiting for this book to be released! Buying it today :). I think all the names she calls herself is funny, pdub, etc!

  96. Kim March 13, 2012 at 1:46 pm #

    I love the Burgandy Mushrooms! Yum!

  97. MandaKay March 13, 2012 at 1:47 pm #

    So many Ree-isms to love, hard to choose just one, but I think one of my all time favorite story’s of Rees is the one where she is out with her Marlboro Man and they stop at a gas station and she just wants an apple fritter, but ends up breaking the glass and causing a scene! That would so be me!

  98. Andi Gayle March 13, 2012 at 1:50 pm #

    It’ll make your skirt fly up!

  99. Jane Mykleby March 13, 2012 at 1:50 pm #

    She is just funny. I follow her on twitter and she is just real. And she has made a living out of “living”. Granted, she has a good “story”. City girl marries a cowboy and has 4 punks. I loved it when she was in her phase of watching Inception and trying to figure it out. Which I have not done. I think I will sign up for your emails too. You are funny. “stink eye”. Always accuse my youngest of that. I hope I win. I cook, but I hate it.

  100. Luann P March 13, 2012 at 1:51 pm #

    i love her sense of humor…. because I have a very similar sense of humor and she cracks me up!

  101. Brandy March 13, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    The nicknames she gives her family.

  102. Mareen March 13, 2012 at 1:55 pm #

    I love her phrases about butter … to feel guilty and even more guilty… but what the hack. Butter is good after all =)

    In general, I love the way she writes her recipes. So fun to read them.

  103. Kara D March 13, 2012 at 1:55 pm #

    I like that she has a good sense of humor and lots of nicknames for everyone, from her husband to her kids.

  104. Candace T March 13, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    I love how she finds the humor in ALL things and then puts her spin on it…and her obsession with movies cracks me up

  105. libby March 13, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    Love her sense of humor and the goings on with her family

  106. Ashley March 13, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    Her sense of humor is fabulous :)

  107. Kalyn March 13, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    I just love it when she inserts random comments into the middle of a recipe that have nothing to do with it…especially about her alien hands.

  108. Jan S. March 13, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    I love the names Ree makes up for her dogs. Like Walter becomes “Wal-toh.” I do the SAME THING with my cats and horse! (Basically, it’s baby talk for pets.) Scary? Yes. That’s why I’m glad I’m not the only one who does it!! :)

  109. jamie wainwright March 13, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    I love how she calls herself an “airhead” when she leaves an ingredient out of the photo. I would SO do the same thing.

  110. Emily March 13, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    I love that she calls her husband the Marlboro man!

  111. pam c. March 13, 2012 at 2:01 pm #

    love her sense of humor and how she always makes you want to read more and makes you feel like you just cant wait to read her next blog post! fantastic writer!

  112. Betsy March 13, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    So many things I love about her! Cracks me up when she goes off on a tangent and then says “tap tap, this thing on?” perfectly captures how well she can poke fun at herself. Plus, I’m ALWAYS still reading at that point, she never loses me!

  113. kelsey March 13, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    I love how she really brings humor into her cooking. Her blog cracks me up and makes me want her food all at the same time!

  114. Addie March 13, 2012 at 2:04 pm #

    I love all her funny nicknames for herself… and I love her Cheap Romance Novel story that she wrote about her and Marlboro Man… ok, I just love her

  115. Jackie F. March 13, 2012 at 2:04 pm #

    I love how she is always sweating when she goes on TV and never fail…she is always wearing a silk blouse!

  116. Amy March 13, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

    It will make your skirt fly up!

  117. Lorie March 13, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

    Marlboro Man. The first few episodes of her show when she’d call him by his REAL name Ladd, I was dumbfounded and seriously confused. I was like “What is a Ladd?” “Who is she talking to?”

  118. Summer March 13, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

    I love that she calls her kids “punks.” If I called mine that it wouldn’t sound near as endearing!

  119. Sandra M March 13, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

    I love how she calls her fingers her pink alien fingers!~ hilarious.

  120. PamD March 13, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

    I like her nicknames for her family and herself. And her sense of humor :)

  121. Mrs. Wendy S. March 13, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism is, “and because I love ya…,” a statement which always accompanies her giveaways!

  122. Jenni Allen March 13, 2012 at 2:08 pm #

    I love watching her show and how NORMAL she makes everything!

  123. Sarah D. March 13, 2012 at 2:09 pm #

    I love how Ree can always laugh at herself and admit that she is not perfect.

  124. Katie March 13, 2012 at 2:10 pm #

    I love how she calls her husband Marlboro Man. I think it is so sweet and endearing. She has so many to choose from though! Love her voice in her writing!

    • carol st March 14, 2012 at 10:54 pm #

      I love seeing the dogs in glasses & sprawled all over the furniture.

  125. Jessica March 13, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    Most definitely her “pink alien hand” comment is the one that cracks me up. We women are so hard on ourselves.

    Love the looks of this soup!

  126. Britney March 13, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    I love her sense of humor and the stories about her family. Makes you feel part of her world!

  127. Tori March 13, 2012 at 2:12 pm #

    I love when she talks about driving to the city (Tulsa) because that’s where I live!! I long for the day I run into her buying apple fritters at Quick Trip.

  128. Amy March 13, 2012 at 2:12 pm #

    I love how she calls her husband, Ladd. I have to stop sometimes and think to myself, who is she even talking about!

  129. Heather March 13, 2012 at 2:12 pm #

    I love her sense of humor & how down-to-earth she is!

  130. Amber Barnum March 13, 2012 at 2:14 pm #

    I love how she is never afraid to make fun of herself!

  131. Judy March 13, 2012 at 2:14 pm #

    I love, love, love, love Chicken Tortilla Soup. So over the weekend, I made some.

    The end.

    Wasn’t that a beautiful story?

    Her one liners followed by “the end” and a follow up question like the example above. Love those

  132. Aimee Porter March 13, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    “Not” and “Groady” :)

  133. Jeni March 13, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    I don’t know if it’s a “Ree-ism” but I love it when she references her alien hands. I have them too!

  134. Emily March 13, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I love her honesty and real-ness!

  135. Amy March 13, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    When she swoons over Marlboro Man’s chaps :)

  136. marilyn March 13, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I love her witty comments..always gives me a laugh..

  137. Judy March 13, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I think all those pictures of MM in his chaps and who she trails off and forgets what she was talking about might be my favorite part of her blog lol. I love seeing couples who are still ridiculously in love after so many years :)

  138. Amy in KY March 13, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I love the way she signs her name, P Dub, etc. It makes me laugh every time!

  139. Nicole in STL March 13, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    Love when she plays pranks on her own kids! Hilarious!

  140. EG March 13, 2012 at 2:17 pm #

    I can’t help but chuckle at “hiney tingle.”

  141. Magen March 13, 2012 at 2:17 pm #

    I love how she calls her kids “punks”. It makes me laugh!

  142. Angela March 13, 2012 at 2:19 pm #

    I like that she refers to her husband and the Marlboro Man!

  143. AngieDB March 13, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    How she always talks about Marlboro Man’s..ahem…butt and kindly shows us pictures.

  144. Kristin March 13, 2012 at 2:21 pm #

    I love how she lets her personality shine through! It’s funny when she says “don’t be like me” whenever she leaves an ingredient out of a photo.

  145. tamera March 13, 2012 at 2:21 pm #

    I use the ‘stink eye.’ It’s effective. It’s hilarious! I use it at home – and I use it at school!!!

  146. Gay H. March 13, 2012 at 2:21 pm #

    Her “pink alien hand” is my favorite Ree-ism!

  147. Michele M March 13, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

    I am fairly new to PW but love reading everything on her blog. Can’t wait to get this cookbook!

  148. Diane March 13, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    Like when she jokes about “we” when she means the cowboys.

  149. Becca from It's Yummilicious March 13, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    I love how every time Ree writes, I feel like I’m standing right there next to her in the kitchen, watching her “skirt fly up”… lol

  150. Jodi March 13, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    i think it’s great when she makes fun of herself for forgetting a picture in her cast of ingredients!

  151. Vinessa Chapates March 13, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    I love the nicknames she’s assigned to her family! :)

  152. Susan H. March 13, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    I love how she always says “and because I love you” on her giveaways. I love reading anything she writes though. Thanks to you and Ree for chance to win her latest book.

  153. Jeri M March 13, 2012 at 2:25 pm #

    Love her sense of humor!

  154. Elizabeth March 13, 2012 at 2:25 pm #

    I love her sense of humor!

  155. Amber, RD March 13, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

    Yum! That soup looks amazing! I have her first cookbook and I adore it! I think my favorite Ree-ism is when she takes pictures of her hands an makes fun of herself. That’s confidence!

  156. Bobbiekg March 13, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

    I love that she kind of rambles. haha. Even in her writing you can tell that she is bubbly, happy and eager to tell you her stories!

  157. Beth March 13, 2012 at 2:28 pm #

    I love how she comforts me by letting me know it’s ok to use MORE butter.

  158. Eva Canitano March 13, 2012 at 2:33 pm #

    Love when she talks about living in her yoga pants!

  159. Karla March 13, 2012 at 2:35 pm #

    I love that she clearly loves her kids—even though she is often poking fun at them……

  160. Laura P. March 13, 2012 at 2:35 pm #

    Her sense of humor and ability to not take everything so seriously is great. I love Pioneer Woman!

  161. Lindy March 13, 2012 at 2:36 pm #

    Her references to her hands always crack me up – pink alien hands!

  162. Christina March 13, 2012 at 2:38 pm #

    I love how she uses () to disclose extra thoughts… i do it all the time too!

  163. Julie F March 13, 2012 at 2:38 pm #

    Butter, butter, and more butter!

  164. Sarah O March 13, 2012 at 2:38 pm #

    I love how much of herself and her personality she puts into her recipe posts.

  165. Jessica W March 13, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    I love when she posts photos of chaps, if you know what I mean ;)

  166. Julie P. March 13, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    Her “pink alien hands” crack me up!

  167. Joey March 13, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    Mmmm this looks yummy!

  168. Carrie March 13, 2012 at 2:42 pm #

    “Don’t be like me.”

  169. Laura March 13, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

    I love how Ree’s posts are always like having a conversation with her. She’s so fun and personable!

  170. Jenny Judi March 13, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I love the names of her recipes.

  171. Lisa Z March 13, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I love her humor and how she is not afraid to make fun of herself, love her story about the donut case when they stopped for gas. If you haven’t read it, you need to!

  172. Allison March 13, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I love her references to her dogs and kittens!

  173. Debra Schramm March 13, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    Love Ree’s clothing and jewelry!

  174. Lauren March 13, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    Wow! This looks great i love me some tortilla soup! I love how she’s just like the lady next door…so down to earth!

  175. momgateway March 13, 2012 at 2:46 pm #

    Her Charlie posts are funny and charming at the same time.

  176. Elizabeth March 13, 2012 at 2:46 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism is whenever she references chaps. They just make me laugh. Probably because my husband and I randomly reference chaps and we definitely have never worn them. Ever.

  177. txcookiemomster March 13, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    I love how her signature at the ends of posts are different i.e. “Love, P Widdy”, etc…

  178. Stephanie March 13, 2012 at 2:49 pm #

    I love how she always seems to forget to take a picture of an important step, or forgets to include certain ingredients in the picture!!

  179. Melissa Calvin March 13, 2012 at 2:50 pm #

    It’s funny when she says “strictly enforced with a wooden spoon!” Thanks

  180. Cassie Erickson March 13, 2012 at 2:50 pm #

    She is just so funny and down to earth

  181. Jamie March 13, 2012 at 2:51 pm #

    I love how she loves her family and her dogs. Her love for life really shines through and I love that about her.

  182. Kristen March 13, 2012 at 2:52 pm #

    I love any time she references Marlboro Man!

  183. Denise K March 13, 2012 at 2:52 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism is all of her nicknames. I do the same thing at my household. It makes her very real and makes her seem like a friend.

    Great Giveaway! THank you for hosting.

  184. Lynsey March 13, 2012 at 2:57 pm #

    YUMMY!!!! Cannot wait to get this book (and make this soup)! Thanks for the chance to win it signed!!

  185. Katie hoot March 13, 2012 at 2:58 pm #

  187. Johanna March 13, 2012 at 3:00 pm #

    My most recent favorite story was the one about the donut case shattering….

  188. MaryBeth March 13, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

    I crack up reading her blog when she writes “don’t be like me”. Thanks for a chance to win!

  189. Natalie March 13, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

    I love all the nicknames she gives everyone!

  190. Lauren March 13, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I LOVE her all together. But mostly I love the warnings she leaves you with. Like if you don’t have people to share it with, you may have to throw the pan away because there’s no stopping yourself from eating the whole thing. Congrats on the 2nd cookbook, Ree!!

  191. Traci March 13, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    Love how she talks about her Marlboro man and punk kids!

  192. Brenda M. March 13, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I love how down to earth she is and her sense of humour. Is so relaxing to watch on TV…not to mention very funny.

  193. Sarah O March 13, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I love her Corn and Cheese Chowder. I made it a couple weeks ago for the first time and then I’ve made it once a week since. It’s soooo easy and so comforting. It’s ‘knock your socks off’ good!

  194. Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac March 13, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I love when she refers to her hand as a “pink lobster claw” or “alien hand” ridiculous! The creamy avocado on top of this really makes it!

  195. lauren March 13, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    her humor!

  196. Tara March 13, 2012 at 3:10 pm #

    Hmm. Ree-ism. I guess I just love her self-deprecating comments. Not one in particular. A genre of ree-isms, if you will…

  197. Jan March 13, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    Love that she takes pictures of her husbands backside!

  198. Manda Valenti March 13, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    I love all of the funny names she calls her husband! They are so funny!

    Thank you!!

  199. Kelli Williams March 13, 2012 at 3:13 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism was “Juice Bag” the entire post cracked me up! I love her cooking, too. But that sweet voice and her funny comments about her son going to college and hoping they served other drinks besides juice bags! Hilarious!

  200. Anne March 13, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism is actually a Mike-ism…dumb butt turkey face!!!

  201. Sherri March 13, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    I love her wit on her blog. She always make me laugh!

  202. Deanna B. March 13, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    When she’s “keeping it real” or “make your skirt fly up”. I can’t decide. Great looking soup!

  203. Sarah March 13, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    I love how when she leaves something out of her cast of characters, she always says, “don’t be like me”. So funny!

  204. Winter March 13, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    I love it when she goes on and on, then she says “okay, I’ll stop now.” Cracks me up!

  205. Alina March 13, 2012 at 3:21 pm #

    Great giveaway!! I love how Ree is so down to earth and that she’s always giving herself funny nicknames.

  206. Rebecca @ Miss Magnolia Munches & Moves March 13, 2012 at 3:21 pm #

    I love how she refers to her family. She often takes the long, humorous, confusing way to let you know who someone is.

  207. Sean March 13, 2012 at 3:21 pm #

    Ree is simply fantastic. She’s hilarious calling her children, punks!!! I love it.

  208. Rachelle March 13, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    I love that whenever you cut an onion, she tells you to “lop off the tops” first. Such a funny expression!

  209. jjk March 13, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    I like when she criticizes her hands or polish in photos.

  210. Vaishali March 13, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    She is hilarious…and oh so good….:)

  211. Annalise N. March 13, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

  213. Adena March 13, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    I love how she talks about her family and that one of the best known pics she has taken is of her hubby in Wranglers, just a complete butt shot, too funny.

  214. Laura in Texas March 13, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    My favorite is “makes your skirt fly up!” Thanks for the laugh this morning!!

  215. Michelle Stephens March 13, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

  216. Hope DuRoss March 13, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    I love how cute she is with the kids!

  217. Ashley @ Josh & Ashley's World March 13, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    I love how she always takes a moment to enjoy the quiet moments in her household or to enjoy the aroma’s of her cooking creations :)

  218. Tami March 13, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    Not sure if this a “ree-ism”, but I always crack up when she comments in blog posts as her Basset Hound, Charlie. So funny!

  219. Patti Williams March 13, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    I love that when a recipe doesn’t look perfect, its looks rustic. I use this excuse now when my pie crusts don’t quite turn out.

  220. Sarah M March 13, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    My favorite Reeism would have to be “it’ll make your skirt fly up”. She is so great!

  221. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts March 13, 2012 at 3:36 pm #

    What a great soup – I love Tortilla Soup!
    My Ree-ism is all the nicknames she has for herself her family and everyone around her!

  222. Janet March 13, 2012 at 3:36 pm #

    I love that she’s not afraid to pour some booze in her food!

  223. Angela March 13, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    How she calls her kids punks – love it!

  224. Charlotte March 13, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    The “purple alien claw”!

  225. Tammy P. March 13, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    I like the fact that she isn’t afraid of keeping it real..letting us know all about her love of spanx..and a certain cowboy.. ;-)

  226. Taylor March 13, 2012 at 3:42 pm #

    I love how her love for her kids shines through in all her posts! And her love for Marlboro Man!

  227. Jessica March 13, 2012 at 3:42 pm #

    I cannot think of one specific. I love that she is just so honest.

  228. Denise March 13, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

  233. Angie Mc. March 13, 2012 at 3:46 pm #

    Cracks me up she calls her kids “punks”

  234. Kara B March 13, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    This one’s kinda obvious, but I love “Marlboro Man” – perfect nickname for her rugged, cowboy hubby!

  235. Gerry @ Foodness Gracious March 13, 2012 at 3:50 pm #

    I like how she always cries at every movie she watches :) First time I’ve landed on your blog and I love it. I’ll be checking in more often :)
    Thanks and take care…

  236. Amie March 13, 2012 at 3:50 pm #

    The references to the mystery alien hands that appear in her pictures…lol

  237. Michelle Corbo March 13, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

    I love Ree and “I love ya more then my luggage”!

  238. Veronica March 13, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

    She absolutely cracks me up. And I love how she calls her husband Marlboro Man. Love it! She talks about being a city girl, and considering the fact that she lives on a farm, I think she has made the absolute best of it. I admire her so much.

  239. Gayle Shepherd March 13, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    I love the way her beautiful relationship with her children shows in everything she does!

  240. Sarah G March 13, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    And her nicknames are great, too!

  241. Stephanie S. March 13, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    I don’t know if this is a Ree-ism but I do love how she always talks about how she is never letting her kids leave home. I feel the same way.

  242. GinaE March 13, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    “Whatever makes your skirt fly up” is a favorite. But like everything about her blog, humor and just a lovely, loveyl family. Many thanks for the chance to win!

  243. Rachel in PA March 13, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

    My favorite is when Ree says “don’t be like me” It always puts a smile on my face.

  244. Rory W March 13, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

    Of course the best thing about her is her recipes! They’re always amazing and they never fail to impress. But I also love how entertaining her blog posts are. She’s hilarious and it just makes her recipes so fun to read!

    One of these cookbooks would be great, especially if it’s as entertaining as her blog. Thanks for the chance to win!

  245. Nee Nee March 13, 2012 at 3:59 pm #

    I love all the funny comments she makes when she writes her blog especially about her dog, Charlie and her kids.

  269. Jenise March 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    Amen.

  270. Michaela March 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    I love her sense of humor and how she isn’t afraid to be herself! the pink lobster claw is pretty hilarious

  271. Casey March 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    i love how she never takes anything too seriously

  272. Debi Boz March 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm #

    I love her nicknames and how she is so totally honest when she talks….

  273. Samantha March 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm #

    Her posts make me smile because she’s so quirky and witty. Seems like she’s not afraid to be herself online. I like when she says “Amen” or talks about how much she loves Marlboro Man’s chaps! Love her recipes!

  274. Melissa @ Bless This Mess March 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm #

    Oh Ree. What’s not to love about that woman. I love her love of Charlie. He might be the most popular blog dog ever! I am just dreaming about that book!

  275. Mackenzie Miller March 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm #

    I love that she is funny-and real. I get a kick out of some of the things she says sometimes. It can always put a smile on my face!

  276. Laura March 13, 2012 at 4:34 pm #

    The story about her and MM going to a convenience store and the donut case broke cracked me up. flipping hilarious…

  277. Peggy March 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm #

    I think it’s funny when she refers to her holey yoga pants. Actually, I just like her sense of humor!

  278. Pam March 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm #

    Her “it’s all ok” attitude is so comforting!

  279. Nikki March 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm #

    Love the nicknames she gives herself. Always make me laugh.

  280. Valerie B March 13, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

    I love how she talks about her kids – so lovingly.

  281. Martha Mitchell March 13, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

    I laugh about how she always comments on her fingers and manicure (or lack thereof) showing up in her pictures. She’s a marvelous photographer!

  282. Katie March 13, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

    When she says “whatever makes your skirt fly up” ha!

  283. Victoria HM March 13, 2012 at 4:39 pm #

    Ree’s awesome in many ways. I appreciate her understanding of the “muffin top”.

  284. Tammy March 13, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    When she says if you make this for a man, he will propose marriage.

  285. Lori - near Seattle March 13, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    I’m not telling you what it is, but it starts with an i, and ends with Pad.

  286. Megan March 13, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    Her love of excessiveness. Add a little more cream, a little more chocolate. Use whole milk, more butter. YUM.

  287. Carole Resnick March 13, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    Her love for her children — human and fur. I need to try this soup while it is still cold enough for hot soup.

  288. Anne March 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    The nicknames she gives herself!

  289. Amanda W March 13, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    That soup looks so yummy! My fav thing about Ree is her wit. She’s hilarious!

  290. Nancy March 13, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    Her pink alien hand

  291. Jill March 13, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    So many to choose from! I always enjoy when she adds “man” to the end of a sentence. Cracks me up!!

    Or the whole donut case story. Hilarious!

  292. Will March 13, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    That like my wife, she too has 4 kids and manages to do so much-well!

  293. Bekah March 13, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

    love her sarcasm!

  294. kaiann March 13, 2012 at 4:53 pm #

    I appreciate her love of ranching and what it means to our country.

  295. Jaton March 13, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    “Marlboro Man” “It will make your skirt fly up” “punks”….uhhh, maybe not in that order :) Thanks for just being “Ree” (aka…pwiddy, pdub…)

  296. Cathy March 13, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

    She’s just so darn down-homey! From one Oklahoman to another!

  297. Erika March 13, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

    I like her whole writing style!

  298. Severiana March 13, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    When she says, “because I love ya” cuz I feel like she actually does!!!

  299. Joanna @ Southern Daisy March 13, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

    I love when she uses the phrase “hiney cringes” because that is such a perfect way to describe that weird feeling you get when you see something gross. :-)

  300. Jolene March 13, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

    her many uses for the word, “MAN!”

  301. Ada Spahija March 13, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

    Her jokes about her “pink alien hand” get me every time!

  302. thai March 13, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

    i really like when she says “becasue i love ya, because….” on a giveaway post

  303. kyndall March 13, 2012 at 5:02 pm #

    her humor!! i laugh when reading every post!!

  304. Marissa B. March 13, 2012 at 5:02 pm #

    “Don’t be like me” “Trust me” and “Never mind” Love her stuff!

  305. Sallie March 13, 2012 at 5:04 pm #

    calling her husband “The Marlboro Man”

  306. kristen b March 13, 2012 at 5:05 pm #

    I love anything Charlie and Walter – Oh and she says Oh Never Mind after everything!

  307. Eileen March 13, 2012 at 5:05 pm #

    If something doesn’t turn out just right, I say its rustic, and I feel better. Love it…

  308. Amber March 13, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    I love all the nicknames she’s given herself and her family =)

  309. Kate March 13, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    Love her! I love how she talks about her grandma’s recipes

  310. Kristina N. March 13, 2012 at 5:10 pm #

    I love how she gives nicknames to everyone and jokes about everyone – including herself. “Dont be like me.” :)

  311. chelsie March 13, 2012 at 5:13 pm #

    Hiney tingles. Hilarious.

  312. Janie Hyde March 13, 2012 at 5:15 pm #

    I absolutely loved her book From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels! A Ree-ism, huh? I like when she warns you about trying something, “beware you might become instantly addicted!”

  313. Mindy V March 13, 2012 at 5:17 pm #

    Her sense of humor..

  314. Sue McRae March 13, 2012 at 5:21 pm #

    Ree is so witty and I like when she uses the threat of a wooden spoon when she has giveaways.

  315. Susan Smith March 13, 2012 at 5:22 pm #

    I think it’s funny that she likes that Charlie stinks :) He is a cute doggy and I love that she is a children’s book author too!

  316. Lisa March 13, 2012 at 5:24 pm #

    Talking about her brother and his cuss words. Hilarious!

  317. Becca Dutill March 13, 2012 at 5:25 pm #

    “and I’m an accidental country-girl”
    I love Ree…her family…Charlie…and the land!
    Florida hugs,
    Becca

  318. sarah March 13, 2012 at 5:25 pm #

    I love her posts about Charlie!!

  319. Dana March 13, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

    She can really tell a story and….burp!

  320. Katherine V March 13, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

    The pictures she takes of her Basset Hounds

  321. Lydia March 13, 2012 at 5:29 pm #

    Love how she refers to her husband as “Marlboro Man.”

  322. Mary March 13, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

    Got to love all those captions Ree puts with those adorable Bassets!

  323. Amilia @justeverydayme March 13, 2012 at 5:35 pm #

    It’ll make your skirt fly up <–too funny :)

  324. Lauren Z. March 13, 2012 at 5:36 pm #

    I love it when she directs us to “use the most freaky looking pink alien claw you can find to…” Hilarious! Also love “P-Dub.”

  325. Robin March 13, 2012 at 5:38 pm #

    “love you more than my luggage”

  326. Robin Moss March 13, 2012 at 5:39 pm #

    I love her down to earth here I am take me or leave me. I love how she loves her family and Charlie and Walter and she has a great laugh.

  327. Brittany C. March 13, 2012 at 5:41 pm #

    I love all the nicknames she gives herself, and that she is so just open and down to earth

  328. Marleen V March 13, 2012 at 5:42 pm #

    Her nicknames for herself – P-Dub-Widdy-Diddy-Dub :)

  329. Tammy March 13, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    LOVE her family nicknames. She constantly makes me laugh!

  330. Julia March 13, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    The best thing about Ree is her humor!

  331. Marissa March 13, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    She is a delightful woman with lots of words of wisdom…I love when she says, “don’t be me”. She is my inspiration and i would love a signed copy of her book!!!!

  332. Julie @BananasForBourbon March 13, 2012 at 5:48 pm #

    Hm…Ree-ism. Definitely when she mentions her skirt flying up. I totally love it!

  333. Michelle Wright March 13, 2012 at 5:49 pm #

    I made that soup and it was awesome!!

  334. Sandy Manning March 13, 2012 at 5:51 pm #

    I love (and have stolen!) her saying “It will make your skirt fly up!”

  335. Carolyn March 13, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    I love when she gets going on her blog and then is so off topic she says Okay. Forget I said that.
    or Ignore that.
    But she doesn’t delete it. We all read it and “get” her so much more because she is so real.

  336. Jen Jones March 13, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    Since I am new to the Pioneer Woman, I’m gonna just go ahead and buy the book. I buy all my books on Kindle EXCEPT cookbooks!

  337. Denise March 13, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    She often says, “I have to be me.” Love it.

  338. Jen March 13, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    Love PW recipes!

  339. Ruthy March 13, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

    Love her blog, fb – everything. But Cinnamon Rolls are our favorite! And not so hard to make which is great! And that Chicken Tortilla Soup looks like a must!

  340. Tiffany March 13, 2012 at 5:55 pm #

    I love that ree is not afraid to use butter!!

  341. Kelster March 13, 2012 at 5:56 pm #

    I love her streams of consciousness (best way I could describe it).

  342. Stephanie March 13, 2012 at 5:56 pm #

    “Goodbye forever.” It cracks me up every time.

  343. Mary O. March 13, 2012 at 5:57 pm #

    I love how she’s “keeping it real”!

  344. Rebecca Boetticher March 13, 2012 at 6:00 pm #

    I love the pictures of her family and the cute dogs!!!

  345. Meghann March 13, 2012 at 6:01 pm #

    that she just wants to do something and then does it!

  346. Stephanie March 13, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    At first I thought she was “perfect.” A blog for anything about everything. But she really is imperfect like the rest of us. But her recipes are perfect.

  347. Kacie L March 13, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    I love her funny comments when she is writing.

  348. Erin March 13, 2012 at 6:06 pm #

    I love her Charlie photos!

  349. Kristina March 13, 2012 at 6:10 pm #

    I think it’s funny when she makes fun of herself in the pictures for her recipes (like her “alien fingers” and “lobster claw hand”, etc.). I would never notice any of the things she points out because I’m too busy drooling at the delicious looking food. But it makes me laugh!

  350. Phyllis March 13, 2012 at 6:12 pm #

    I like how she describes anything that is not perfect as “rustic.” Great cookbook!

  351. Heather March 13, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    I love her obsession with Real Housewives :-)

  352. Laura K March 13, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    I love it when she talks about turtle breath Frito paw Charlie. Hmm breath that smells like turtles while his paws smell like Fritos? What is in Fritos that makes them smell like the path to turtles at Ree’s house? I guess we will never know!

  353. White March 13, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    Add me to the “it will make your skirt fly up” camp.

  354. Hannah March 13, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    Just love her in general…I know I will get a good laugh out of every post!

  355. Debbie R March 13, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

    “Marlboro Man”

  356. Leesa Getry March 13, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

    She lives by a very special rule, “Chocolate makes everything better.” Sometimes she surprises me by using one of my phrase and express my feeling exactly about living with meat driven men. I’ve been married to a man who believes there should be three meats at every meal. When Ree shares something that if just for her or the girls I get excited, means a new idea for me time.

  357. Becky March 13, 2012 at 6:19 pm #

    I love how she refers to her kids as “punks”…..how cute is that ?

  358. Rhondi March 13, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    I think it’s funny when she says You’re Welcome!

  359. Brenda March 13, 2012 at 6:23 pm #

    Obviously, the pink alien hand.

  360. Allison March 13, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    I love how she obsesses with Marlboro Man’s chaps…and chaps in general

  361. Lynne March 13, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    “Skirt fly up” cause I say it too.

  362. Vanessa March 13, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    I love that she refers to herself as “PDub” among many other names. It’s adorable and funny!

  363. Karen Peterson March 13, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    I love her willingingness to share her recipes, even if it is free on the internet and plus, she is really funny in all her posts.

  364. Emily March 13, 2012 at 6:25 pm #

    A girl’s gotta experiment from time to time, man.

  365. Julie Turner March 13, 2012 at 6:28 pm #

    I love her music/movie references that show up randomly in recipes or “confessions. ” Just makes it so much more fun!

  366. Andrea March 13, 2012 at 6:28 pm #

    I love her blouse!

  367. Averie @ Averie Cooks March 13, 2012 at 6:30 pm #

    Maybe it’s not a Ree-ism, but I do love how she is not shy about using a pat of butter here, a half of stick there, another “little bit” there. :)

  368. DessertForTwo March 13, 2012 at 6:33 pm #

    Hmm…my favorite Ree-ism is all the sarcastic anecdotes underneath her step-by-step instructions. It makes me smile every time.

    :)

  369. Michelle March 13, 2012 at 6:34 pm #

    I love how she cooks naturally. She isn’t into cutting calories by using low fat products…I love having flavorful dishes…

  370. Jackie Thompson March 13, 2012 at 6:35 pm #

    Though there are many – if I had to choose, I’d have to say I love it when she says “whatever makes your skirt fly up”. Hilarious!

  371. Danielle Beinke March 13, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

    Probably that she isn’t afraid to poke fun at herself – the donut case story made me laugh so hard!!

  372. Kristen M. March 13, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

    I love her witty sense of humor! She is just a joy!

  373. Jeannette March 13, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

    when in doubt, use more cream. more cream is good for the soul. ;) I hear her saying that as she unloads an entire bottle of heavy cream into some concoction ;)

  374. Jamie March 13, 2012 at 6:40 pm #

    It’ll make your skirt fly up…cracks me up every time

  375. Barb March 13, 2012 at 6:41 pm #

    Love that she is real!

  376. Donelle March 13, 2012 at 6:42 pm #

    I love her post sign-offs! So funny!

  377. Janell March 13, 2012 at 6:42 pm #

    Her nicknames!

  378. Shellee Chase March 13, 2012 at 6:44 pm #

    Affected accents in her posts, Jamaican, is particularly lovely.

  379. Scorpio Woman March 13, 2012 at 6:45 pm #

    my favorite thing about Ree is her sense of humor and all her yummy photos of all the food

  380. Kim March 13, 2012 at 6:45 pm #

    i also love her nicknames. shes hilarious

  381. jamie March 13, 2012 at 6:45 pm #

    I love how she signs stuff “P-dub”, “P-diggity-doggity-dub”, etc etc…so funny!

  382. Debi March 13, 2012 at 6:46 pm #

    When in doubt, use more cream!

  383. Karen Caves March 13, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

    Love how she calls Ladd, her Marlboro Man!

  384. Carolyn Black March 13, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

    I LOVE all the nicknames she has for everyone and the fun things she says in her blog! She cracks me up! LOVE her and would LOVE her new book!!!

  385. Kesha March 13, 2012 at 6:48 pm #

    I love her down to earth, sense of humor personality! She was really funny about the trying of the fake eyelashes! Just hilarious:)

  386. Rachel J March 13, 2012 at 6:48 pm #

    Love of butter- or all things food.
    “Because it is Tuesday and because my pants are already tight…throw in a little extra…”

  387. Sarah March 13, 2012 at 6:49 pm #

    Never mind.

  388. judith March 13, 2012 at 6:49 pm #

    The pink alien hand gets me every time!!!!!

  389. Jessica March 13, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    I love when she talks about “Marlboro Man!” I always think of that song “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” ;D

  390. Anita March 13, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

    I love the way she talks about her alien hands.

  391. Bernadette B March 13, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

    I find it cute and funny when she talks about the men on the ranch – especially her husband, in “chaps”.

  392. Andrea March 13, 2012 at 6:53 pm #

    i know she kicks her husband’s butt at shooting & she lets him know it. LOL

  393. Lori J March 13, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    She’s like a good friend… easy going, funny, and knows how to make you feel better!

  394. Chanda March 13, 2012 at 6:56 pm #

    “Trust me Man!”

  395. Jeanie S March 13, 2012 at 6:57 pm #

    Calling the kids punks… always makes me smile!

  396. Pamela March 13, 2012 at 6:57 pm #

    I love all her nicknames and “country” references…makes her seem like an old friend!

  397. Kay March 13, 2012 at 6:58 pm #

    I love the word she use to describe her food….scrumptious!

  398. Amanda March 13, 2012 at 7:00 pm #

    I love how she pokes fun at herself when she forgets to take a picture of something, she’s so genuine!

  399. Kim March 13, 2012 at 7:05 pm #

    I love how she often forgets to include all the ingredients in her photos and makes fun of herself. I often forget little things, too – it’s nice (and reassuring) to not be the only one!

  400. Susan Lynn March 13, 2012 at 7:05 pm #

    I love that she loves her husbands butt in chaps and can stare at it 22 hours a day!

  401. Hillary T March 13, 2012 at 7:07 pm #

    Her freaky alien finger pictures and comments!

  402. Amy H March 13, 2012 at 7:09 pm #

    Calling her husband “Marlboro Man”. I read her blog for months before I knew his real name.

  403. Myra March 13, 2012 at 7:13 pm #

    Her signature – P Dub Diddy etc.

  404. Jen March 13, 2012 at 7:14 pm #

    I love how she describes the smell of Charlie’s paws- cracks me up every time.

  405. Julie P. March 13, 2012 at 7:17 pm #

    Has to be calling her children punks, they are cute as buttons but all children have their moments.

  406. Patricia March 13, 2012 at 7:18 pm #

    “So good it’ll make your skirt fly up”. And her nicknames for everyone. Oh, and the alien hands.

  407. Shelby N. March 13, 2012 at 7:18 pm #

    Not sure if this coutns as a “Ree-ism”, but I love that she calls Ladd “Marlboro Man”. So cute.

  408. Andrea G March 13, 2012 at 7:21 pm #

    Her use of movies quotes!

  409. Kristin Janisch March 13, 2012 at 7:25 pm #

    I love it when Ree says, “It’ll make your skirt fly up.”

  410. Allan March 13, 2012 at 7:26 pm #

    I love that the humour in her blog – which is a plus over an above the amazing recipes she posts there.

  411. Debby March 13, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    I love how she doesn’t follow recipes to a T, she just puts in a little extra cause it never hurts!!

  412. Rachel Osowski March 13, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    I love how sometimes she writes just like she’s thinking, like with a special accent or something-extremely southern or French or just makes up her own language (pepperier);) Sometimes she literally makes me laugh out loud b/c I’m like “I totally do that, too”…pretend I have an accent! Her blog makes my day!

  413. Colette March 13, 2012 at 7:29 pm #

    She is just so down to earth. I love that she shares so much… that donut case incident just cracked me up when I first read it.

  414. Angie R. March 13, 2012 at 7:29 pm #

    My favorite is, “it will make your skirt fly up!”

  415. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel March 13, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    Is it even possible to pin down one thing? Love her movie tweets.

  416. Erin March 13, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    How awesome that you got an early copy. This soup looks great.

  417. Jenny March 13, 2012 at 7:35 pm #

    I love when she signs her post “P-Dubs.” Took me a little time to figure that one out. I also love every single thing about Charlie and Walter!

  418. Andrea March 13, 2012 at 7:36 pm #

    I think just her general style of writing is genius. It’s really taking you in and very nice to read. They way she talks about he animals and her family, calling her guy Marlboro Man, how cool is that? I wish I could give my guy such a cut nickname…

  419. Janean Lindner March 13, 2012 at 7:39 pm #

    I love that she calls him The Marlboro Man…

  420. Lora March 13, 2012 at 7:41 pm #

    I love her incredible sense of humor!

  421. Sarah March 13, 2012 at 7:44 pm #

    I love how she talks about Charlie’s many smells–always makes me laugh :)

  422. Kelly McCarty March 13, 2012 at 7:45 pm #

    “Malboro Man”

  423. Jenni March 13, 2012 at 7:46 pm #

    It’ll make your skirt fly up!

  424. Joan Pratt March 13, 2012 at 7:49 pm #

    The quote ” I just might have…” knowing full well she did!

  425. Karina March 13, 2012 at 7:50 pm #

    Her references to her “alien hand”.

  426. yasee March 13, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

    Her sense of humor!

  427. Sarah F March 13, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

    I love that she calls her kids Punks!

  428. Kristen March 13, 2012 at 7:58 pm #

    I love how “real” she and her family are!!! I would love to go out and help with the early morning chores and then come back to the lodge for a yummy meal….and then a nap! :)

  429. Amanda March 13, 2012 at 7:58 pm #

    Most, love her quirky sense of humor!
    Also, how she calls the trivia questionnaire’s “smartypants”!

  430. Tricia March 13, 2012 at 8:00 pm #

    I love her witty humor…and her love of bacon & butter :)

  431. Lauren March 13, 2012 at 8:01 pm #

    I love her sense of humor and I live her food!

  432. Allison March 13, 2012 at 8:02 pm #

    I love P-DUB!

  433. Beth March 13, 2012 at 8:02 pm #

    I love how she isn’t afraid to make fun of herself. Or her family for that matter

  434. Kerri Coyne March 13, 2012 at 8:05 pm #

    ” so good it’ll make your skirt fly”

  435. Kristin C. March 13, 2012 at 8:05 pm #

    “whatever blows your skirt up” – she just let’s me be me!

  436. Bernadette March 13, 2012 at 8:06 pm #

    I am super jealous! I want an autographed copy of her cookbook!

  437. Michelle from Missouri March 13, 2012 at 8:09 pm #

    Any time she talks about Charlie :)

  438. Denny Cheever March 13, 2012 at 8:13 pm #

    She cracks me up when she makes comments about her hands in the photos.

  439. Melissa B March 13, 2012 at 8:14 pm #

    I love how she admits to being in her yoga pants or how she calls her kids punks. I refer to mine as monsters. :)

  440. Dianna March 13, 2012 at 8:19 pm #

    Ree’s nicknames are hilarious.

  441. Claygirlsings March 13, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

    I guess I’d have to say how she can balance everything and “seem” perfect, but she still admits her mistakes or weaknesses.

  442. Allison S. March 13, 2012 at 8:21 pm #

    I like her nickname for her husband…too cute. :)

  443. Crystal Lowry March 13, 2012 at 8:23 pm #

    I love when she talks about her freakish hands. I love P-Dub!

  444. Kristin March 13, 2012 at 8:25 pm #

    I love the names she gives everyone…so funny! She’s hilarious and I love that!

  445. Melanie {adorkable} March 13, 2012 at 8:34 pm #

    I love that she never fails to make me laugh while reading her stories.

  446. Sharon in Salt Lake City March 13, 2012 at 8:40 pm #

    “Don’t be like me.” She always says that when she makes a mistake in a recipe. Love it! Makes me laugh every time. Mostly because we all DO want to be like her!

  447. JennyA March 13, 2012 at 8:40 pm #

    I’d love some of that soup right now…luv Ree!

  448. Treasa March 13, 2012 at 8:40 pm #

    I love the fact she is herself! And that i get to see glimps of Oklahoma and occasionally Tulsa when I watch her show or read her post.

  449. Naomi Dice March 13, 2012 at 8:40 pm #

    i like her sense of humor. It makes her so fun.

  450. Lara March 13, 2012 at 8:44 pm #

    I love her posts about totally random stuff. It’s just her life and it’s so funny.

  451. Evelyn R March 13, 2012 at 8:45 pm #

    Her “alien hands” crack me up

  452. Stephanie March 13, 2012 at 8:45 pm #

    Amen. : )

  453. Laura March 13, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    “because today is. . . and because. . . . and because I love you. . . . ” I love that she writes like she would talk face-to-face. :)

  454. Amber March 13, 2012 at 8:52 pm #

    I love when she says “it’s so good it’ll make your skirt fly up!”

  455. Andrea March 13, 2012 at 8:52 pm #

    I love how down to earth she is!

  456. Shelby O. March 13, 2012 at 8:52 pm #

    I love when Ree says something will “make your skirt fly up!” So hilarious to envision.

  457. CarlieInLA March 13, 2012 at 8:54 pm #

    It will make your skirt fly up ;-)

  458. Chelle March 13, 2012 at 8:54 pm #

    She says ‘man’ a lot. Like me. It’s good to know someone out there still says it. I used her using it to show my punks I’m not a freak, man.

  459. Tina M March 13, 2012 at 8:55 pm #

    You know something is REALLY tasty if she mentions wanting to eat it on the last day of her life!!

  460. Lesley Fitts March 13, 2012 at 8:56 pm #

    I love her “alien hands” references!

  461. Kathy March 13, 2012 at 8:56 pm #

    Her humor is wonderful, I so relate to it. Plus, all the nicknames she gives her family. We do the same in our family.

  462. Wendy March 13, 2012 at 8:57 pm #

    Her nicknames for her family!

  463. Emily T March 13, 2012 at 8:57 pm #

    I love how she slips at least one bit of *former* slang into almost every one of her recipe posts!

  464. Katie W. March 13, 2012 at 8:58 pm #

    I love that things make her skirt fly up and she calls her kids punks! :) She just has a way of making everything interesting! :) Love her and can’t wait to see this new book!

  465. Shannon Wong March 13, 2012 at 8:58 pm #

    I love Ree and how down to earth she is. She also inspires my photography.

  466. Brittany March 13, 2012 at 9:00 pm #

    She has a great sense of humor! I love that she still calls her hubby Marlboro Man! I wish she did on the show too!

  467. Sarah March 13, 2012 at 9:00 pm #

    LOVE her wit and when she talks about buttah! :)

  468. Carla C March 13, 2012 at 9:01 pm #

    I can’t just pick one! I absolutely love her sense of humor. Some mornings I have tears running down my face from laughing just reading her blog. I love her pictures of the animals and their silly personalities.

  469. Beverly March 13, 2012 at 9:01 pm #

    I love Ree and her names for her family and loved ones… and I really love her “keepin it real” and quirky sense of humor… Thanks for the giveaway (I’m “Bev” too and I love your blog!)

  470. Jackie March 13, 2012 at 9:02 pm #

    I love her personality and her recipes!!

  471. Norah March 13, 2012 at 9:02 pm #

    Pink alien hands… goofy PW.

  472. Brianna March 13, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

    I love any of her usual comments about Charlie, those two are definitely kindred spirits (except for the giant ears, Frito paws and copious amounts of extra skin).

  473. Kath March 13, 2012 at 9:04 pm #

    I love her sense of humor in general but to make it easier for me I’ll choose from the episodes I have seen so far on her new show instead of from her blog. I loved the part when she hid the desserts from her family! It was too cute.

  474. MANDI!!! March 13, 2012 at 9:04 pm #

    Love how she describes how she sees herself on her Food Network show. We all watch and love and she’s mocking her shiny forehead and arm flab. Woman after my own heart!

  475. Catherine March 13, 2012 at 9:05 pm #

    I love how she calls her husband, Marlboro Man! I just love it!!! Her sense of humor is wonderful too!!!

  476. Bar March 13, 2012 at 9:06 pm #

    I love the fact that PW is still hot for her man!!

  477. Kayla March 13, 2012 at 9:06 pm #

    I love her humor!

  478. Audra W March 13, 2012 at 9:07 pm #

    I love her wittiness! I always wished I could be witty ;)

  479. Lisa N March 13, 2012 at 9:08 pm #

    keepin’ it real!

  480. Derria March 13, 2012 at 9:09 pm #

    She cracks me up in general, but I love how she calls him Malboro Man. And how she still calls her youngest Baby.

  481. Megan P March 13, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

    I love how she makes me not feel too bad for putting lots of butter in my cinnamon rolls :)

  482. Bree March 13, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

    I love how she calls her kids punks, but then they are her babies. She’s so funny!

  483. marrianne March 13, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

    I like how she is still in awe of her husband (and his forearms, chaps, etc).

  484. hcpedigo March 13, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

    With 4 kids of my own, anytime she talks about the housekeeping and the excess of laundry, we’re kindred spirits!

  485. Jessica B March 13, 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    I love when she mentions her “alien hands”

  486. Nathan Miller March 13, 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    Family First

  487. heather March 13, 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    I love how much she loves her family (furry kids included) and isn’t afraid to share it with the world.

  488. Linda Wolf March 13, 2012 at 9:15 pm #

    I love her sense of humor and how she calls her husband Marlboro Man. You gotta love these Oklahoma country guys!

  489. Kate March 13, 2012 at 9:15 pm #

    Love her sense of humour, especially her references to the claw!

  490. MindyD March 13, 2012 at 9:16 pm #

    Her sense of humor – laughing and cooking were made for each other!

  491. ZeeS March 13, 2012 at 9:17 pm #

    I love the way Ree makes fun of herself when she blogs. Like how she always comments on her alien hands.

  492. Tina B. March 13, 2012 at 9:18 pm #

    The nicknames that she coins for herself and lovedones – very sweet!

  493. Cindi March 13, 2012 at 9:19 pm #

    Her humor…like when she says “I love ya more ‘n my luggage”….right out of Steel Magnolias!

  494. Teslaca March 13, 2012 at 9:19 pm #

    I laugh every time she mentions Charlie’s turtle breath. I can just see him chomping away on one and smell the awful stench that must create.

  495. AbbyRose March 13, 2012 at 9:19 pm #

    The nicknames she uses, and he unabashed love for Charlie…

  496. Tk March 13, 2012 at 9:20 pm #

    I love her sense of humor and how relatable she is!

  497. Mary P March 13, 2012 at 9:20 pm #

    I think my favorite “ree-ism” would be : Trust me,man ” ( And I usually do! )

  498. Katie March 13, 2012 at 9:20 pm #

    I love how she goes off on a tangent on certain things, like eating peanut butter from the jar, with a spoon, dipping cookie in it, dipping tongue in it, etc. ha.

  499. Liz S March 13, 2012 at 9:21 pm #

    Too many to pick a favorite … love all the photos … Marlboro Man (does he smoke ‘em?) … all the funny stories about dogs and various other animals encountered on the ranch…

  500. Lauren Anne March 13, 2012 at 9:22 pm #

    I love her humor. I also love how Todd always says to everything she makes that it’s the best he has ever had. It’s so cute!

  501. Amy @ WithGoodThings March 13, 2012 at 9:24 pm #

    I like how she always talks about “getting the liquor from the bedside table” for her recipes!

  502. Kristin M. March 13, 2012 at 9:24 pm #

    I love how she refers to her kids as her “punks.”

  503. Michele L. March 13, 2012 at 9:24 pm #

    “it’s my thang”

  504. Chelsea March 13, 2012 at 9:25 pm #

    love everything about her.. but one of my favorite is how she signs her posts at the end! always so funny!

  505. Katy March 13, 2012 at 9:26 pm #

    Her nicknames for foods, kids, descriptions are the best!

  506. Kelly March 13, 2012 at 9:26 pm #

    I love how she comments on her hands in the photos!

  507. Carol G March 13, 2012 at 9:26 pm #

    When she tells me it will “make my skirt fly up!”

  508. Tammy G March 13, 2012 at 9:26 pm #

    I love it that she uses phrases I liked from when I was growing up. You know us forty-somethings…

  509. Mary H March 13, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

    I like when she channels Ethel Merman =)

  510. brittney March 13, 2012 at 9:30 pm #

    love everything about her, but i especially love all of the random musical/film references she makes and her humor in general “pink alien fingers” etc. she just amuses me. :)

  511. Jessica O March 13, 2012 at 9:31 pm #

    I, like a lot of the others, like that she calls her kids ‘punks’. I think it says a lot about her fun-loving personality.

  512. Kristen W. March 13, 2012 at 9:32 pm #

    i love it when she says “It will make your skirt fly up” i giggle like a little girl every time!

  513. Chrissy P March 13, 2012 at 9:32 pm #

    I love how she is just like one of the girls…she isn’t ashamed to admit she sweats a bunch when she’s nervous!!!!

  514. Chelle March 13, 2012 at 9:34 pm #

    I always laugh at how she makes us feel sorry for her (in a funny way) that she’s in the middle of nowhere and doesn’t have the ease of getting things from the deli. Like a chicken or certain cheese. And can’t forget her pet name Marlboro Man. Love all of her pet names.

  515. Julie March 13, 2012 at 9:34 pm #

    I love her sense of humor!

  516. Tracy F. March 13, 2012 at 9:34 pm #

    I love how she doesn’t try to fix her mistakes before she posts… she just goes with the flow and lets us in on what she did (even if it was wrong)

  517. Casey March 13, 2012 at 9:34 pm #

    Maybe silly, but I love how she’s constantly saying “Because I love ya.”

  518. Sarah March 13, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    I love how sometimes she will randomly put “Man” after something, so funny!

  519. Sherry March 13, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    Oh Em Gee, that soup looks wonderful!

  520. Hilary G March 13, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    I love how witty she is…there are too many ree-isms to list. But do love her nicknames for her kiddos, hubby, and sweet lil’ puppy dogs.

  521. Sue . March 13, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    Hiney cringe

  522. Anna Sfe March 13, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    You can’t HANDLE the truth!! :)

  523. Barb H March 13, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism is that she talks about sweating when being nervous. I love that about her! Thanks for the opportunity to win one of her 2nd cookbooks! I love the 1st one.

  524. Michelle March 13, 2012 at 9:36 pm #

    I love how she’s always “keeping it real”

  525. Lisa March 13, 2012 at 9:37 pm #

    I love that she cooks for her family instead of obsessing about the latest diets or health crazes! She is so down to earth! Love her! (That and I have never made one thing of hers that my husband didn’t like!)

  526. Pat Helton March 13, 2012 at 9:37 pm #

    I love how she tells how she became a Pioneer Woman,,,lol

  527. Jennifer March 13, 2012 at 9:38 pm #

    I love how she talks about her family and her food

  528. Valerie @ From Valerie's Kitchen March 13, 2012 at 9:38 pm #

    It’s gotta be “whatever makes your skirt fly up”. That’s the one! Her recipes def make the skirt fly up!

  529. Katya March 13, 2012 at 9:39 pm #

    I love how she is so down to earth!

  530. Anne March 13, 2012 at 9:40 pm #

    I love how she is obviously smitten with her Marlboro Man and let’s us know it – yes I love that about her! Ree’s Chicken Tortilla soup is an often requested family favorite. Never fails, always perfectly deeelicious!

  531. Jenny G March 13, 2012 at 9:42 pm #

    I love it when she talks about funny stuff like her chipped manicures in pictures. Oh, and gotta love her made up words.

  532. Kendra March 13, 2012 at 9:42 pm #

    A girl can never have too much chocolate! I totally agree!

  533. Darci Allred March 13, 2012 at 9:44 pm #

    I love when she gets totally off subject- her sense of humor is awesome!

  534. Megan (Braise The Roof) March 13, 2012 at 9:45 pm #

    Can my favorite Ree-ism be the fact that she loves butter and meat? Because…so do I. :)

  535. hanna March 13, 2012 at 9:46 pm #

    I love it when she says that it will make my skirt fly up. And how she adds a side note about how it’ll apply differently if I’m a man. I LOL everytime!

  536. Diana March 13, 2012 at 9:46 pm #

    Love the nicknames, ESPECIALLY Marlboro Man

  537. chelle belle March 13, 2012 at 9:46 pm #

    AMEN! :)

  538. didie March 13, 2012 at 9:47 pm #

    Cant pick! Just love everything about the woman!

  539. Lori Henderson March 13, 2012 at 9:47 pm #

    I love that she can admit when she is wrong or makes an oops. he si beautiful inside and out.

  540. Ashley C March 13, 2012 at 9:47 pm #

    I love how she calls her hubby Marlboro Man….I call mine Mr. Potatohead :)

  541. Leslie H March 13, 2012 at 9:50 pm #

    I love her nicknames for herself and all her family (and the fact that she calls the boys “punks”- haven’t heard that in eons).

  542. Beth March 13, 2012 at 9:51 pm #

    I enjoy the sorties she tells about her daily life. the one I especially laughed out loud about was the one where she only wanted a donut!

  543. Lori P. March 13, 2012 at 9:53 pm #

    Any time she talks about an issue on her blog that “a friend of hers” suffers from…cracks me up!

  544. Robin K. March 13, 2012 at 9:54 pm #

    I don’t have a particular Ree-ism. Just love that she doesn’t take herself too seriously and can always see the light side of a situation!

  545. vicki March 13, 2012 at 9:55 pm #

    fave ree-ism…… doesn’t eat/like bananas

  546. Jennifer Pace March 13, 2012 at 9:55 pm #

    How she never fails to make me crack up at even the most everyday things. :)

  547. nicole b. March 13, 2012 at 9:56 pm #

    My favorite Ree-ism is COWBOY FOOD. I tend to love all of the “Marlboro Man-approved foods” the best, like Frito-chili pie, and MY FAVORITE all-time Ree recipe… spicy Dr. Pepper shredded pork. It changed my life. Thanks for the chance to win. xo.

  548. Michelle March 13, 2012 at 9:56 pm #

    I love when she talks about her alien fingers.

  549. Lynne March 13, 2012 at 9:58 pm #

    Where to start??
    Ree is so normal, funny, loving and real. She talks about her husband and her kids like I talk about mine and her love for cooking is right up there with my philosphy that ‘Life is really all about the food’ (preparing it with love and sharing it with friends and family).
    Things that ‘make your skirt fly up’ and ‘dang’ are terms that crack me up. Oh and the story about wanting a donut made me laugh so hard I cried because I could relate.

  550. Rachel March 13, 2012 at 9:58 pm #

    I don’t have a favorite “Ree-ism”, but I just love how she writes, like you’re right there in the kitchen chatting with her as she cooks.

  551. RG March 13, 2012 at 9:59 pm #

    Kinda general, but I like her style. Her humor, candidness, simple fun.

  552. Sue March 13, 2012 at 10:00 pm #

    her sense of humor…..always makes me smile.

  553. Cindy C March 13, 2012 at 10:00 pm #

    Love her sense of humor!!!

  554. Michelle March 13, 2012 at 10:01 pm #

    I love her witty personality!

  555. Mary Lynch March 13, 2012 at 10:03 pm #

    I love her humor!!! And how she says “that’s all baby.” Her book is histerical!

  556. Shannon March 13, 2012 at 10:03 pm #

    my favorite Ree-ism is when she counts down the seconds to her show on twitter using a bunch of decimals, “new show on in 5.000008 minutes” haha

  557. Shari March 13, 2012 at 10:04 pm #

    “It’ll make your skirt fly up.”

  558. Amanda Smith March 13, 2012 at 10:05 pm #

    I love how she always includes Charlie in her Food Network episodes. I want his life!

  559. Liz March 13, 2012 at 10:08 pm #

    I love how she calls her kids “punks”! My son fits right in there too! :P The love that she has for her family just shines through in every post!

  560. Wendy Bartels March 13, 2012 at 10:08 pm #

    I loved her story about the glass door on the donut case that shattered into a million pieces! A total classic!

  561. Stephanie March 13, 2012 at 10:09 pm #

    I love watchng her show and listening to her talk about her family! But my favorite was when she talked about beating the Baptists to the grocery store after church on Sunday. :)

  562. Margarita March 13, 2012 at 10:10 pm #

    I don’t know why I don’t own her cookbook yet. I flipped through it at a friend’s house and loved it… I wish I lived on a ranch!

  563. Colleen D March 13, 2012 at 10:10 pm #

    How she is so real and funny too.

  564. MIchelle K March 13, 2012 at 10:11 pm #

    I love how she talks about her husband. Though she never calls him my name, she frequently refers to him as the love of her life….or Marlboro Man. adorable and hilarious.

  565. Donna Bailey March 13, 2012 at 10:11 pm #

    LOOOOOOVE her nickname for her Brother-in-law…”PESKY” Tim! That represents a good relationship, when you can tease each other, and still get along. I just love this family.

  566. angie March 13, 2012 at 10:13 pm #

    this really isn’t a ree-ism…but i love the way she is just so down to earth…she could be anyone’s next door neighbor!

    PW is hilarious. I was initially attracted to her blog because she talks to the readers like we are all her sisters….and because she takes photos of EVERY STEP! I need that!

    Her gentle spunkiness… she warms my heart ;)

    I love her sense of humor. She isn’t afraid to laugh at herself and that makes her all the more fun! The tweet she sent out yesterday about “I’ve been ‘honking’ about you lately” really cracked me up!

    I love that she says “Amen.” It means that the previous info was very important. Plus I love that Ree has great monkiers for herself, her man, and her kiddos. Too cute!

    I love her use of movie quotes.

    Marlboro man – what else would a woman need???

  573. Julie I. March 13, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

    You know something’s got to taste good when she writes “it should be illegal”.

  574. Lara S. March 13, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

    Her food, her personality and her story.

  575. Maureen March 13, 2012 at 10:23 pm #

    I love how she is just plain down to earth. The cameras might be in front of her but she is just a mom to four kids and a wife. You can tell how she loves what her life is now.

    Marlboro Man

  577. Kate March 13, 2012 at 10:31 pm #

    I love when she jokes about her scary, pink alien fingers.

  578. Darci McVay March 13, 2012 at 10:33 pm #

    Just that she’s hilarious and so laid-back.

  579. Cassandra March 13, 2012 at 10:34 pm #

    Must have cilantro, holmes! Is one of my favorites, she uses it on the restaurant style salsa :P
    But there is WAY to many to choose from, half the reason I love her, Her sense of humor!

  580. Sarah March 13, 2012 at 10:34 pm #

    Okay, I hope this doesn’t sound too much like I’m phoning it in, but my favorite thing that Ree does on her blog is when she gets down and dirty, capturing what it’s like to live in the country. Growing up on a farm, I’m NOT easy to impress when it comes to rural living at its best. I can see a genuine, respectable life being lived through her family and what they do in their home. Makes me homesick but also so proud of my roots. It’s not just novelty. It’s our life!

    We love soup so will definitely be making this one! Love having the pictures and recipe!

  582. Brenda March 13, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

    I continue to think about her telling the story about wanting a doughnut and breaking the doughtnut case, this sounds like something I would do…

  583. katherine a. March 13, 2012 at 10:40 pm #

    i love how she’s not afraid to share embarrassing stories about herself

  584. Jodie Dean March 13, 2012 at 10:42 pm #

    I love how she isn’t afraid to tell her mistakes and her sense of humour!

  585. mallory March 13, 2012 at 10:47 pm #

    i love how she embraces heavy cream…i also think that she should just have that 5th baby already, we all know how much she wants one!

  586. Daphne March 13, 2012 at 10:48 pm #

    I love her talking about Charlie’s frito smelling toes!

  587. Cyndi March 13, 2012 at 10:49 pm #

    I love the “I just wanted a doughnut” line

  588. Marie March 13, 2012 at 10:50 pm #

    Love when she signs off

    I love the humor she incorporates into her posts/recipes, like when she warns readers that they might need two chocolate bars because they might eat the first one instead of putting it into the recipe. She’s great!

  590. Janis Bornong March 13, 2012 at 10:51 pm #

    I love it when she says she’s “KEEPIN IT REAL” and using her Big Girl camera helps her do just that!

  591. Judy March 13, 2012 at 10:53 pm #

    It’s “scrumptious”………………Is that how you spell that?

  592. Kendal March 13, 2012 at 10:55 pm #

    I love that she is so down to earth. My mom was raised on a ranch out West and they are really down to earth people as well. So I can relate!

  593. Joan L. March 13, 2012 at 10:56 pm #

    Recipes that will “make your skirt fly up.”

  594. Sonya March 13, 2012 at 10:59 pm #

    I follow her on twitter and she cracks me up!!

  595. Gidget March 13, 2012 at 10:59 pm #

    ‘it will knock your socks off’ she has only said that a couple times that I remember but it cracks me up every time.

  596. Linda March 13, 2012 at 10:59 pm #

    I love how she takes photos of all the steps to a recipe. Sure makes it easy to follow along.

  597. sherry s March 13, 2012 at 11:01 pm #

    Ree is the real thing

  598. Pam S. March 13, 2012 at 11:01 pm #

    I love her being so down to earth!

  599. Jenn Fox March 13, 2012 at 11:01 pm #

    I love her sense of humor and how she doesn’t take herself too seriously…all her nicknames, etc. and how she’s not afraid to laugh at herself…”pink alien hands”.

  600. cathy stech March 13, 2012 at 11:02 pm #

    I LOVE how she always talks about MM and how he looks in his Jeans!

  601. kathy March 13, 2012 at 11:03 pm #

    Pdub and so many others!

  602. Mariah March 13, 2012 at 11:03 pm #

    That her dog’s feet smell like Fritos.

  603. fabiola March 13, 2012 at 11:03 pm #

    It is for sure the movie talks on twitter, they are my fave!
