Ree Drummond - host, serves and eats Egg in the Hole with her husband Ladd Drummond and their children Alex, Paige, Bryce and Todd during episode 2 as seen on Food Network's Pioneer Woman Season 1.

Families, foodies, mamas and romantics rejoice!!

This morning Food Network announced that Ree Drummond, award-winning blogger and best-selling cookbook author will be brining her wit, charm and delicious down-home recipes to the Food Network in an all-new series shot at her family’s gorgeous Oklahoma ranch. The show will offer a big slice of frontier life, as the “accidental country girl” creates hearty family meals.

The first few episodes will follow Ree as she flips Lemon Blueberry Pancakes for son Todd’s birthday breakfast, achieves a Perfect Pot Roast for Sunday family dinner, and serves up Fig, Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza and Sangria for ladies night in. In between culinary conquests, Ree takes time to wrangle horses, compete in a shooting contest with her husband Ladd (aka “The Marlboro Man”), have fun with her four adorable kids and try to keep Charlie the basset hound out of trouble.

Oh, I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this announcement! I don’t know anyone who isn’t familiar with Ree, but if you need a little intro:
