What happened on ‘The Pioneer Woman?’

Drummond has a close relationship with her fans, after all, she started her empire blogging. The Food Network star has a large following on social media and often shares snaps of her life and clips from her show. On Saturday, August 14, she gifted her followers with a video full of bloopers between herself and her daughter Paige.

In the video, Drummond is explaining to her daughter what she was doing. As she was talking, she suddenly remembered that she had forgotten an ingredient — the peas. However, that was not the last ingredient that Drummond forgot to add. As she continued to boil the food, she saw that she also forgot the garlic and the ginger.

The red-head and her daughter couldn’t help but laugh at the moment. Paige took it upon herself to add the garlic to the pan and when she added the ginger, she tapped it, which made a splatter all over Drummond’s outfit. The Pioneer Woman’s assistant was surprised it did that and said she didn’t think that would happen.

“So far, Paige is the worst assistant — let’s see who can beat her,” Alex Drummond says as she captures the moment on camera.

On Instagram, Drummond captioned the video, “I’ve had a lot on my mind lately. Brain fog!! I blame brain fog!”
