The Pioneer Woman

You've toured her Oklahoma ranch, explored her her town and even had breakfast with her family. But how well do you know The Pioneer Woman when it comes to her kitchen favorites and go-to meals? Recently FN Dish caught up with Ree as she launched her new line of serveware, and she dished on some of her culinary picks, plus what she's listening to — and watching — while she cooks. Read on below for the answers, as well as a bonus rapid-fire session with all of Ree Drummond's favorite flavors.

What dish or ingredient will we never catch you eating?

Ree Drummond: Anything remotely related to bananas. Banana splits, banana cream pie, banana bread ... I want nothing to do with them. BLECH.

What's your favorite midnight snack?

RD: I'm never awake at midnight! I'm a morning person.

It's a regular Tuesday night. What are you having for dinner?

RD: If it's wintertime, roasted chicken legs and broccoli cheese soup. If it's summertime, roasted chicken legs, refrigerator rolls and cool, colorful salad ... and it's too hot to eat dessert, so we all have fruit.

What's your ultimate guilty-pleasure food?

RD: Mmmmm. So many things! Any coffee-flavored dessert is a weakness of mine. Tiramisu, coffee ice cream, coffee-toffee pie ... I'll take it all.

What’s the most-surprising thing we’d find in your fridge?

RD: Six or seven different jars of fiery hot peppers. I need them, in a psychological sense.

What music do you like to listen to in the kitchen?

RD: I watch movies like The Godfather and Napoleon Dynamite.

Rapid fire — think fast!
Ketchup, mustard or mayonnaise? Mayo — always!

Chocolate or vanilla? Is that a serious question? Chocolate!

Coffee or tea? COFFEE, IN ALL CAPS.
Bagels or doughnuts? I don't have to answer that.
Waffles or pancakes? Both!
Burger or hot dog? Burger, baby.

Cream cheese or butter? Sorry, cream cheese, but butter is the king.

Cake or pie? That's like asking me to choose one of my children. I can't do it!

Beer or wine? Wine, wine, wine!
