In an episode of “The Pioneer Woman,” Drummond visited her father so she could bring him and his wife, Patsy, a special meal. She made creamy chicken cacciatore soup, parmesan herb drop biscuits and Italian salad with parmesan crisps and green olive dressing. For dessert, she made dark chocolate cheesecake. Her father loves chocolate, so this was a real treat for him. Here’s what Drummond posted on Instagram:

I made this very small (have you ever used a 6-inch springform pan? So cute!) chocolate cherry cheesecake for my dad and Patsy recently, and Todd and I delivered it, along with soup, salad, and biscuits. The whole shebang is captured on a brand-new episode of The Pioneer Woman on @foodnetwork Saturday morning at 10 Eastern/9 Central! I had to lead this post with a pic of the dessert, because chocolate is all that really matters to my dad anyway. (The apple didn’t fall far from the tree on that one…) See you on the teevee!

Ree Drummond’s tip for storing leftover baked goods and sweets

How does Drummond store leftover baked goods and treats? Last year, in Drummond’s holiday issue, she answered a reader question about her food-storage method. Drummond gave a humorous response, saying sweets don’t really last that long in the Drummond household:

I’m not very good at holding on to treats—they get eaten pretty quickly in our house! I don’t ever store homemade candies, because they’re just too delicious, but things like cookies, cinnamon rolls and other soft baked goods freeze well. I generally freeze them in their finished state, wrapped in plastic wrap and then in foil.

Drummond cooks a lot and appears on her weekly Food Network show, but that doesn’t mean gathering recipes for a new cookbook is any easier. Drummond dedicates a lot of time and thought to each cookbook she produces. She told “Tulsa World” it often takes her a few months just to create a list of the recipes she wants to publish in her cookbook. “Usually a new cookbook starts with me making a list of recipes I’m passionate about sharing. And that usually takes a couple of months, because things need to evolve before I come up with a more or less complete list. Then I see if there’s some sort of theme I can use to try and connect everything together.”
