Ree Drummond—better known, perhaps, as The Pioneer Woman—took to Instagram on Tuesday, June 16, to share a special announcement with loyal fans of her website, cookbooks, and Food Network show.
"If you've been here before, you may notice that things look a little different," Ree told fans regarding her website, ThePioneerWoman.com. "This is a change I am so excited about."
The site got a shiny new makeover, complete with brand new recipes, fun snapshots of life on the ranch, and adorable photos of Ree's seven (SEVEN!) beloved dogs.
Watch Ree's special video message about the update:
The site's redesign comes nearly 15 years after the The Pioneer Woman's initial launch in 2006. "I started this website completely on a whim," Ree told her fans in the video message, "and it evolved into something I never could have imagined."
From favorite desserts like blackberry cobbler and decadent sheet cake to classic "Cowboy Food" like short ribs and BLT baked potatoes, Ree's new site has endless meal suggestions. (What to make first?!)
In addition to yummy dinner ideas, there's plenty of info about Ree's hometown of Pawhuska and all the activities it has to offer for locals and visitors alike. Plus, Ree says she'll still be telling sweet stories about her husband, Ladd, her kids, and her pets.
As for her famous nickname, there's a story there, of course. Ree says that family and friends began calling her "The Pioneer Woman" after she announced her engagement to her now-husband, Ladd, a cattle rancher from Oklahoma. She left city life behind to be with him on his ranch in Pawhuska, and soon realized she had a lot to learn.
"Actually, when I first moved to the ranch, I was a fish out of water in basically every way," Ree told The Pioneer Woman Magazine. Years later, we think it's safe to say Ree has gotten the hang of country life.
We can't wait to see what else Ree has in store for her fans!
