I just discovered “Pioneer Woman” on the Food Network. Please share some details about Ree Drummond.
—Penny Pruitt, Amarillo, Texas
Drummond, 44, a writer and photographer, was born in Bartlesville, Okla., and lives with her husband and four children on a working ranch near Pawhuska, Okla. She started blogging seven years ago and now draws millions of page views a month to her posts about home schooling and country life, and recipes with elaborate food photographs. She made her major TV debut on “Throwdown! With Bobby Flay” in late 2010 and kicked off her own series the following year. Drummond has published two best-selling cookbooks and a memoir, “From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels.”
