A reader of “The Pioneer Woman” magazine asked Drummond about the food she makes on the show and if she ever had a major mishap on air. Drummond replied that she has had mishaps and there’s one recipe she wishes she never made on television:

I was just talking to my director about the one recipe I wish I’d never made on my show, because the finished product was not what I had imagined it would be. It was a chicken-strip pizza with pickles and sauce. The vision I had was of big, beautiful pieces of homemade fried chicken and thick-cut pickles with a drizzle of honey. But because of the timing of the episode, I wound up using frozen chicken strips—and they had not won any chicken-strip beauty pageants. Then, we threw coleslaw into the mix and it was just a sea of confusion. I wish I could undo (and unsee!) it. Other than that, most mishaps are minor, and I can fix them on the fly.

What Ree Drummond said about organizing her recipes

In the holiday 2018 issue of “The Pioneer Woman” magazine, one reader asked how Drummond keeps track of all her recipes. There are just so many different meals and desserts, we imagine it would be easy to forget the instructions and ingredients now and then. The Food Network chef shared her method for staying organized. Surprisingly, Drummond revealed she has no real method. Here’s what she confessed to her readers:

There’s no organization whatsoever! I have some recipes in my head, like chocolate sheet cake and cinnamon rolls, but I actually have to go back to my cookbooks to find things sometimes. I always laugh when I do that.

Ree Drummond recommends making these recipes

Although Drummond has to refer to her cookbooks for recipes, there is one more way to keep track. In a blog post on her “Pioneer Woman” site, Drummond mentioned she has recipes stored in her website archives. So, if you can’t remember the ingredients for one of her recipes, don’t forget to check out her website. There are a few recipe ideas Drummond recommends her readers try out. Among her suggestions are restaurant style salsa, shrimp quesadillas, chipotle steak salad, and patty melts.
