Full Episode Guide
  • Ree Drummond is opening a mercantile at her building in town, so she's throwing an on-site dinner for her girlfriends who've helped her stock the store. She kicks things off with a gorgeous Quinoa Salad with Buttery Roast Vegetables, then serves a comforting pot of Cheesy Cauliflower Soup with chunks of gooey Jalapeno Cheese Bread. For dessert, there's decadent Salted Caramel Cheesecake Squares.

  • It's tequila all the way as Ree Drummond tests making a whole meal with a bottle of tequila. The appetizer is a great Queso Fundido Con Tequila, and for the main course it's a Shrimp Tortilla Soup with a shot of the good stuff! Even dessert's part of the experiment with Berries with Tequila Cream, and she wraps things up with a Spicy Tequila Sunrise cocktail.

  • There's a battle of the sexes going down on the ranch where the guys like their food brown and hearty. There's a blind taste test to see if punchy Penne alla Vodka can win a coveted spot on Ladd's approved list. Then when the guys are away, eating steak and potatoes, the girls will play, and Ree's throwing a cowgirl's dinner the guys would hate with elegant, sophisticated Goat Cheese with Fresh Dill appetizers, chilled Sangria, and a hip Fig-Prosciutto Pizza with Arugula.

  • The family is pitching in at Ladd's brother's farm, and Ree is packing a cowboy-approved tailgate lunch. There's Spicy Baby Back Ribs, Twice Baked Potato Casserole, Slow Cooked Jalapeno Corn, Roasted Green Beans and two delicious Dump Cakes; Pineapple and Peach and Cherry.

  • It's a big day of unveiling down at the building Ree's been renovating. She's making a Tex-Mex themed celebration lunch of Chipotle Chicken Chili, Chili Cheese Muffins, Caramel Brownies and Mexican Punch for the building team and construction workers to enjoy when the covers come off two new entrances.

  • Ree's sharing four delicious done-in-a-flash desserts, from a great White Chocolate Pudding that's a huge family favorite, to a fast and fabulous Raspberry Fool that's light, creamy and perfect for company. She's breaking out quick Dessert Panini, a gooey, chocolatey kid pleaser, then whipping up Caramel Apple Sauce to make a sundae that everyone loves.
