Roundup the 'Pioneer Woman' fans: A special giveaway


Ree Drummond calls her story "Green Acres Meets Harlequin Romance": City girl meets a cowboy, falls in love and moves to the ranch. She turned it into a popular blog, then an even more popular cookbook, "The Pioneer Woman Cooks." (Even Hollywood can't resist: There are rumors of a movie in the works, with Drummond played by Reece Witherspoon.)


Drummond is coming to Charlotte for a book signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers at SouthPark, Friday, May 7, at 6 p.m. Sounds like a girls-night occasion to me. They'll also feature some of her recipes in the bistro that night.


Tickets are free, but you'll need to act fast. You have to go the Jo-Beth store to pick one up (you can't just call to have one held). It's first-come, first-serve and they'll be available starting Saturday morning.


In honor of Drummond making the trip here, let's give away a copy of the cookbook. I used a couple of her recipes when I was doing a Super Bowl story last month and I can say she does good versions of down-home dishes. You know the drill: Post your name as a comment and we'll draw a winner at random next Friday.

Love the very idea of being an "accidental country girl"! Lots of folks have told me that I need to follow her blog. Maybe her cookbook would inspire me?

How do I get my blog to get 10,000 hits a day like hers? Oh yeah, I probably have to write more than once a year.

It would be wonderful to win this cookbook--that would mean the food spatters would get on a page instead of the laptop screen!!!!
