Ree Drummond, better known by her virtual identity The Pioneer Woman, has a new cookbook that she will sign Thursday at Full Circle Books.
The book signing will be at 6:30 p.m., and a reception hosted by Rococo Restaurant and Fine Wine will follow.
Named one of Time magazine’s 25 best blogs of 2009, Drummond’s blog, "Confessions of a Pioneer Woman,” receives 2 million unique site visitors and about 14 million page views per month. She won three 2009 Bloggies — for best photography and best design, and the big prize: weblog of the year.
Drummond’s book, "The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl,” arrived in stores Tuesday.
Drummond, who lives with her husband, Ladd, on the family’s 20,000- acre horse and cattle ranch near Pawhuska, said she never set out to be an author but she’s thrilled nonetheless.
"In a way it makes it more exciting,” she said, "because it’s so unexpected.”
Drummond graduated from Bartlesville High School in 1987 before attending the University of Southern California to earn a marketing degree. She was in state for a visit with an eye toward law school in Chicago when she met Ladd, whom she refers to on the blog as The Marlboro Man.
