  • Ree hasn't been to the store in weeks and she's still got another day to go before she can hit town. Over the next 24 hours she dips into her trusty staples to whip up some fabulous food from what she can find in her pantry and freezer. There's Pantry Pasta for mom-daughter dinner, French Toast With Blackberry Butter for breakfast for the kids and Simple Perfect Chili with Apple Brown Betty for lunch for the whole family.

  • A rancher's work is never done, especially when there's fence to fix, and today the crew needs some serious sustenance. Ree fixes them Homemade Glazed Doughnuts and later she delivers a rib-sticking lunch of Ranch Chicken Sandwiches to the workers. After the day of hard work, the family enjoys a well-deserved evening of fun and fishing at the pond, where Ree serves up the perfect refreshment: Raspberry Lemonade.
