Some Fans Don’t Think ‘The Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Cooks All Her Meals

The Pioneer Woman star Ree Drummond is known for whipping up recipes for her blog and her Food Network show. Ree makes meals with ease and a constant smile on her face, but some fans doubt she really makes all her own dishes. As her empire continues to expand, some find it hard to believe she has time each day to make elaborate meals for friends and family. Here’s what Food Network fans on Reddit had to say.

One fan thinks there’s someone who helps Ree cook for her family

Ree is quite busy with her businesses and brand partnerships, so some fans think she has a little outside help when it comes to meals. One viewer of The Pioneer Woman thinks Ree portrays herself as a woman who does it all, but she doesn’t believe that’s the case. “I don’t believe that she alone cooks for her family or for the ranch events but that is how she portrays herself,” said the Redditor.

Some think other family members help Ree with meals

Another viewer said she thinks Ree gets assistance from members of her family. Her guess is that they help out with big family dinners or events in the community. “I have a feeling all the women in her extended family and friends group are probably all good cooks and that everyone pitches in for actual family dinners or community events, but for the show, they just want a good story,” said the viewer.   

Many Food Network viewers don’t think Ree is relatable

Many of the Food Network viewers on this Reedit thread wouldn’t be surprised if Ree has help because they don’t think she is the everyday house wife she tries to portray herself as. One Redditor said Ree’s lifestyle is a tell-tale sign she isn’t like the people who watch her show. “It really bothers me when she tries to come across as an everyday, simple, home country cook. No, Ree sorry, but most people don’t have walk-in pantries filled to the brim with grade A products,” said the Redditor.

Is Ree Drummond a trained chef?

Ree Drummond did not go to culinary school. She mentions on The Pioneer Woman blog she is a self-taught cook. Ree’s blog featured her very first post about food in a 2007 guide on how to cook a steak. Fans of her blog loved the recipe and began asking her to share more food posts.
