Drummond has released many books throughout her career. The Food Network star released her first cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl, in 2010. In 2012, she released her second cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier. The following year, Drummond came out with The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays.

The Food Network star’s other cookbooks include The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime; The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Come and Get It!: Simple, Scrumptious Recipes for Crazy Busy Lives (2017); and The Pioneer Woman Cooks: The New Frontier: 112 Fantastic Favorites for Everyday Eating (2019).

Drummond recently announced her latest cookbook will be out soon. She says the book should be out sometime this fall. During her virtual book tour, Drummond joked she will have to get on her rowing machine after testing all of those recipes, reports The Pioneer Woman website.

The Accidental Country Girl is excited about her new cookbook, but she’s likely not as excited about the cleanup that comes after testing out all those yummy dishes. According to The Pioneer Woman website, Drummond says her kitchen is usually a wreck after she prepares meals for a cookbook.

“You know how when I’m cooking on Food Network, my kitchen is neat and the ingredients are organized and I can almost always find the tool or bowl I need?” asks Drummond. “That’s exactly how it is when I work on my cookbook—NOT!” she joked.

 “In real life, when I’m developing and testing recipes, my kitchen quickly becomes a crazy mess of pots and pans and open containers,” admits Drummond.

Another tough part about writing a cookbook is planning what to wear. Drummond says she struggles to figure out which top will look best on her. It’s something she puts a lot of thought into because she says she will have to see herself in the top she picks forever since it will be on the book’s cover. She must choose clothing she will be happy with for years to come.

“Choosing a shirt for the cover is a big commitment,” said Drummond. “I’ll be wearing it on the front of that cookbook forever! I always test out a few options to find the right one.”

Ree Drummond’s coffee

A new cookbook isn’t the only thing you have to look forward to from The Pioneer Woman. Drummond also announced a new line of coffee pods. Her coffee line isn’t new, the only thing that’s new about the coffee is the pods and some of the flavors.

Drummond has been selling her coffee line at The Mercantile and online for a while. If coffee pods aren’t your thing, you can buy bags of coffee from The Mercantile website. We wrote all about Ree Drummond’s coffee in a previous post.
