It's a tale of two dinners at the Drummond Ranch — one for the kids and one for the grownups. The kids are tucking into Baked Ziti, while Ree makes Rib-Eye Steaks With Cowboy Butter, Baked Potatoes with all the fixin's and Cheddar Bacon Wedge Salad for the adults. It's all followed by gooey and decadent Molten Chocolate Cakes and of course, some ranch pranks!
Ree's hosting a movie night for her daughter's classmates and preparing a Roman-inspired menu to accompany Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Steaming pans of Supreme Pizza Lasagna, crisp Julius Caesar Salad and Neapolitan Ice Cream comprise the perfect feast before a tale of Roman intrigue and assassination.
Ree is home alone in the snow — a perfect opportunity to eat lighter and pack in some exercise. For a pre-hike dinner, she's making a delicious Low Carb Lettuce Burger. To kick-start the next day, it's a Carb Buster Breakfast, complete with poached eggs, followed by a Butternut Squash and Kale Stir-Fry lunch, all rounded off with a fabulous Orange Resolution Smoothie.
Ree's brother Mike is helping Ladd feed the cattle out on the prairie and Ree is making a fabulous and comforting Mexican Hot Chocolate with marshmallows for toasting over the fire. While everyone's hanging out, she makes Mike's favorite breakfast; individual Eggbert's Sunrisers with Orange Mini Muffins.
Ree Drummond is going around the world with 16-minute meals. First stop is India with Easy Mulligatawny Soup for sharing with a friend. Then, for a solo meal, Thai Beef With Peppers. For dinner with the family, it's off to Italy for Chicken Piccata and delicious Buttery Lemon Parsley Noodles.
It's dinner for two for Ree and her son, Bryce, so she's treating him to all of his favorite meals. First up is Italian Meatloaf, then a no-bake Mac and Four Cheeses served with a simple B-Man Salad of leaves with a great, punchy dressing. And finally, they're having some mom and son quality time with Yummy Slice-and-Bake Cookies and Ice Cream Sundaes.
While the kids and Ladd are outside working the bulls, Ree is making them a rib-sticking meal for when the school bell rings. There's Strawberry Lemonade to refresh them when they get to the lodge, and then Scalloped Potatoes and Ham with a side of Lemony Green Beans. To keep things sweet, Chocolate Pecan Crispy Treats before the kids get down to their studies.
The whole family is pitching in for a big party to celebrate Ree's father-in-law, Chuck's, birthday. Everyone is gathering at the lodge for a Cajun Surf and Turf feast, with rare beef tenderloin and juicy jumbo shrimp, and Cajun Mashed Potatoes and Garlic Butter Dinner Rolls on the side. The girls are helping Ree make a delicious Strawberry Shortcake Cake, while her sister-in-law makes Salad and her mother-in-law takes the boys shopping. It's one birthday Chuck will never forget.
Ree's stocking up the freezer for Ladd's grandmother, Edna Mae. On the drive from the ranch to town, she's sharing the mouthwatering dishes that's she's packed to go: All the perfect food to have on hand, plus tips and tricks. With recipes for Waffles, Lasagna Roll Ups, Potato Soup and Cheese Toast.
Ree's doing some cowgirl catering as she pitches in with the family and cowboys working calves, taking them a delicious breakfast of Apple Fritters With Bacon and Sausage and then serving up a fabulous lunch of Pulled Pork, Classic Coleslaw and Quick and Easy Baked Beans to the hungry crew down at the pens.
Ree tours a local kitchen store gathering some favorite tools for a wedding gift. As she gathers the goodies, she shares the great dishes she makes with each, like Italian Meatball Soup, Potato-Leek Pizza, Skillet Cookie Sunday and Orange Brulee.
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.
