On Saturday afternoon, the “Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond shared a hysterical video of herself cooking with her daughter Paige. Adding to the reasons why Drummond’s fans love her down-to-earth personality, the famous chef forgot numerous ingredients in her cooking clip.
Drummond and her husband, Ladd, are the parents of four biological children and one foster child. The parents have raised their children on their working ranch outside of Pawhuska, Oklahoma. That’s where she first came to fame as Ree created her own blog about life on the ranch.
In addition to sharing her family’s ranch lifestyle with her fans, she would often share recipes. What started from humble beginnings has now grown into a full Pioneer Woman empire. She went on to become an author of multiple cookbooks, has her own cookware line, and opened her own store in Pawhuska. In fact, she even became a Food Network star and has turned into a celebrity chef with her own cooking show.
This weekend, Ree and her daughter filmed a cooking tutorial while at home. However, the Pioneer Woman got a bit sidetracked during filming with Paige. First, Drummond forgot to add peas to the recipe. Then, she realized they left out both the garlic and the ginger. The mother-daughter duo shared a laugh over the mishap before Paige accidentally splashed her mom with the food.
Ree shared the clip on Instagram with her almost 4 million followers. In her own defense, she simply blamed the whole ordeal on a case of brain fog.
“I’ve had a lot on my mind lately. Brain fog!! I blame brain fog,” the Pioneer Woman hilariously said in her Instagram video.
‘Pioneer Woman’ Shares Why She Connects with Viewers
Even though the Pioneer Woman rose to fame behind her cooking and has her own show, Ree Drummond still prides herself on being relatable to her fans. The famous Oklahoman credits her popularity to the fact that she’s an untrained chef. She believes her humble cooking background keeps her connected to viewers.
“I’m not a trained chef, and so I have a level of accessibility,” she said in a 2019 CBS News interview. “I’m not going to show [viewers] anything that is beyond their skill. And also, I use a lot of ingredients that are pretty easy to get.”
Additionally, the Pioneer Woman spoke about preferring recipes that aren’t hard to perfect. And the recipes are even better if they’re easy to remember. Drummond recalled some of her favorite recipes, which many are simple comfort food recipes. Those include sticky buns, macaroni and cheese, and her trademark chicken-fried steak as examples.
“It’s really food that people want to eat, right?” asked CBS News correspondent Alina Cho.
“It is, and the answer to that question is usually either butter or crème!” Drummond laughed. “Why is this so good?“
