During the coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine, Drummond experimented with some recipes. One recipe she made was a drip beef with caramelized onions and provolone sandwich, which she describes as “blessed”. In her book Border follies, she says, the sandwich was so good that her family gave it a “5+ star” rating.

According to Drummond, one of the best things about making this sandwich is that it can satisfy the hunger of a house full of teenagers. She jokes that you can let your children wash up afterwards. She shares the instructions on The Pioneer Woman’s website. If you’d rather not use a slow cooker, you can find a hob guide on the Food Network website.

Peach dumplings

Drummond says her peach dumpling recipe is like apple dumplings. Some of the ingredients in this recipe are frozen peach slices, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and 7-Up, Mountain Dew, or Sprite. The Food Network chef says the soda adds a little extra pizazz.

“Do you know what this will do?” says Drummond on their website. “It just becomes part of the mix and results in that magical mystery syrup that makes the dumplings irresistible,” she replies.

Gazpacho soup

Drummond enjoys gazpacho soup. If you hesitate to try it because you think of it as a hot soup served cold, don’t be afraid. Drummond says Gazpacho is not at all.

“Gazpacho is raw, cold soup – it shouldn’t be thought of as cooked tomato soup that is served cold,” says Drummond on The Pioneer Woman’s website. “Definitely not! Gazpacho is fresh, structured, light and such a delicious summer treat. I love it more every time I eat it. It just feels good.” You can get Drummond’s full gazpacho recipe if you have hers Visit website.

Linguini with mussel sauce

Drummond tried to impress her husband, Ladd Drummond, during her early years of dating. During an episode of The Pioneer Woman, Ree says her first homemade meal was for Ladd Linguini with clam sauce, reports The Food Network.

Rees Linguini wasn’t the food Ladd is used to. She later learned that he likes to eat heartier meals. “Talk about the perfect food for a rancher,” joked Ree. “When I know what I know about Ladd Drummond now, it drives me crazy … He’s that kind of meat and potato guy.” Now Ree makes meals that fit Ladd’s lifestyle. She even has a section on her blog called “Cowboy Food” that has recipes for hearty dishes like smothered pork chops, meatball casserole, and grilled tenderloin.

Ree Drummonds Coffee Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

Some of the ingredients you will need for this ice cream are sugar, egg yolks, vanilla extract, and heavy cream. This recipe makes 12 servings, takes about 30 minutes to prepare, and takes a total of 13 hours and 30 minutes. The full recipe and instructions can be found on Drummond’s website.

The Food Network cook tells Imbibe magazine that she likes to relax during the holidays by drinking Dulce de Leche coffee. “I’ve had a really busy year starting with my book tour and then shooting TV, so I just want to stay in my yoga pants, eat cinnamon rolls, drink dulce de leche coffee, and relax,” says Drummond. “Nothing tangible – just a lot of time with my family.”
