Yes, I gave myself an early Christmas present this year. I never can resist one of Ree’s cookbooks, and I actually use them.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Come and Get It! does not include a holiday section, but here are some recipes in this new cookbook you may like for you holiday cooking through the New Year . Many are also available on the internet.

Pimento Cheese p. 67
Love this stuff and especially Ree’s recipe which is both beautiful, luscious, and oh, so festive!

Tortilla Pinwheels p.76
Red, White and Green paints your Christmas table!

Roasted Red Pepper Soup p. 104
This color is a holiday favorite whether we are talking food, or color schemes. What a great way to start a holiday meal or buffet.

Steak with Chimichurri p. 146
Best quality steak probably doesn’t need this festive and flavorful sauce, but how can it hurt? Pile up sliced steak next to a bowl of this bright green sauce and let your buffet guests serve themselves.

Citrus Salad with Vinaigrette p. 236
The colors and flavors, especially if you can find blood oranges are just right for the holidays. Use Bulgarian feta if you can find it and you are more than ready to enjoy this addition to any holiday meal.

No-Bake White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake p. 352
Fresh and light and the color is right!

More about this cookbook in an upcoming blog. It contains some beautiful and detailed pictures of the Merc in Pawhuska. But on this blog you’ll have to make do with my pictures instead. They will inspire you, all the same. Hope you can visit soon! And try one of these recipes. The citrus salad is truly beautiful and makes my mouth water1
