Ree Drummond started her announcement by saying she’s happy January is over. Depending on where you live, January tends to be one of the coldest months of the year, so we’re not surprised Drummond is glad to leave the month behind her. “Is it just me, or did it feel as if January lasted 519 days?” asked Drummond on The Pioneer Woman blog. “Wait, I know it’s not just me. On social media, at church, everywhere I’ve come in contact with other humans, I kept hearing the same sentiment: Please let January be over! Here on the ranch, it was a cold, wet, muddy January, and our cars became almost undrivable because of the mud that was up in the tires.”

Drummond told her readers she is planning a big surprise for The Pioneer Woman website. She says the updates will allow her to easily check in with her fans. “I have a surprise relating to my website that’s coming soon, though–I will let you know when I get closer to relaunching!” Drummond wrote. “I’m excited about it, because it’s going to make it easier for me to check in with you here, which was my very first online home and will always be important to me.”

Another store is on the way

Another exciting announcement Drummond made is that a brand-new store is on the way. “I’ll be opening a new store in Pawhuska this spring,” wrote Drummond. “So excited.” The Food Network star already has an ice cream shop, pizza shop, hotel, and restaurant. Whatever she has planned is sure to be a nice addition to her growing empire.

Ree Drummond is working on a new book

If you just can’t get enough of Drummond’s books, you’re in for a real treat. She also announced she is working on another book. However, it doesn’t seem like this one will be a cookbook. Drummond says the book will focus on her family. “I’m writing a book of weird and wacky family stories that will be out this fall. I can’t think of a title!” Drummond wrote. “More on this later.”

The last book Drummond wrote is titled The Pioneer Woman Cooks: The New Frontier: 112 Fantastic Favorites for Everyday Eating. In her interview with Tulsa World, Drummond reflects on what the title of that cookbook means to her. She says the book represents new things that have taken place in her life. In her book’s introduction, she talks about her two eldest children attending college and the death of her mother-in-law, reports Tulsa World.

Drummond says the title of her book fits what has been happening with her lately. “When I started to examine the recipes that I particularly loved, and how they kind of reflected the new perspectives I’ve had as family and friendships have developed, The New Frontier seemed to sum everything up.”
