Howdy. I’m Ree Drummond, also known as The Pioneer Woman. Welcome to my frontier!

I’m a ranch wife, mother of four, moderately-agoraphobic (self-diagnosed) middle child who grew up on the seventh fairway of a golf course in a corporate town. I attended college in Los Angeles and wore black pumps to work every day. I ate sushi and treated myself to pedicures on a semi-regular basis. I even kissed James Garner in an elevator once. Then, on a brief trip to my hometown, I met and fell in love with a rugged cattle rancher. Now I live in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch. My days are spent wrangling children, chipping dried manure from boots, washing jeans, and frying calf nuts. I have no idea how I got here…but you know what? I love it. Don’t tell anyone.

I hope you enjoy my website, Here, I write about my decade-long transition from spoiled city girl to domestic country wife. I post photos of cows, horses, and my four weird children, and frequently include shots of cowboys wearing chaps. In my Cooking section, I post step-by-step photos of all the cowboy-friendly dishes I’ve taught myself to cook through the years. In my Photography section, I include Photography section, I give tips for beginning photographers and offer simple Photoshop tutorials. In the Home & Garden section, I show the step-by-step saga of a start-to-finish remodeling project of an old guest house on our ranch, as well as general design tips and photos of things I love to use around the house. And in the Homeschooling section, I discuss the perils of homeschooling four children on an isolated cattle ranch and hold periodic “Smartypants” trivia quizzes so readers can test their brain matter. (
