If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I was at The Pioneer Woman’s Ranch last week! Still can’t believe I was there, lol!

Kitchen Conversations brings together a really great group of food bloggers including myself, my pal Ree from The Pioneer Woman, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod, Bridget from Bake at 350, Sommer from A Spicy Perspective, Brenda from A Farmgirls Dabbles, Julie from The Little Kitchen, Joanne from Fifteen Spatulas, and Jessica from The Novice Chef.

We arrived to the ranch last Monday evening and had a jam packed fun schedule ahead 🙂

The Pioneer Woman Ranch Sunrise

I woke up Tuesday morning to this gorgeous view. The cows were mooing, birds were chirping and the sun rising. I could have stayed out here all day!

Picky Palate and The Pioneer WomanRee is the sweetest around. She showed us around her gorgeous ranch and spent the day chit chatting, laughing and eating with us. Love love love spending time with her! How fabulous is this pantry by the way?! Love the ladder.

he Pioneer Woman Kitchen

Had to snap some pictures of her beautiful kitchen that’s on her Food Network Show. That orange KitchenAid Stand Mixer is just sooo fabulous!


We had a big breakfast that featured many of our recipes. It’s safe to say that we did not go hungry, lol!

We took a fun tour around Ree’s ranch. LOVE this picture of her sitting with the cows. We also got to tour Ree’s building they are renovating. See Ree’s post HERE.

Butter Showdown

Up next was our Butter Showdown! We had to pick two mystery ingredients and create a recipe using Land O Lakes® Butter. We had a great time.

The Pioneer Woman's Charlie The Basset Hound

Charlie came for a visit Wednesday morning. That sweet face just melted my heart. What a sweetie he is!

Had so much fun being roomies with Maria. So excited that they are having another little boy. Congrats Maria!

Dinner and treat

We had a lovely dinner featuring more of our recipes. Ree made us her Cashew Crackle to snack on, talk about to die for. It will be available later this year 🙂

I’ll never forget the gorgeous early morning sunrises on the ranch and my time spent there. I feel so lucky to be a part of such an amazing group of women!

Have a great weekend!!

    So jealous. The views, the company, the food, the pajamas, looks like you had a great time.
    I think Ree should have a fun week-end with people that don’t blog but are faithful followers…she could pluck one out from Buckeye, AZ.

    Oh how I miss those Oklahoma (and Kansas) sunsets!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband and I are currently (hopefully temporarily) living in Michigan. The sunsets up here are pretty but pale.
    I’m drooling over living in the country.
