8 of The Pioneer Woman s Favorite Comfort Foods

Chili: Ree feeds her family her perfect chili, and it truly lives up to its name! This filling dish is a great way to cap off a demanding day on the ranch.

Chicken Parmigiana: Ree says she often has chicken parmigiana with a generous portion of pasta for dinner because it's a family favorite.

Italian Meatball Soup: Ree frequently serves this hearty soup, which is loaded with vegetables and a thick stock, with thick pieces of crusty Italian bread and butter.

Pecan Pie: Ree acknowledges that as a little child, she was afraid of pecan pie. She still loves it, though, as a Thanksgiving dessert.

Buffalo Wings: The Pioneer Woman's favorite Super Bowl spread includes buffalo wings because they are crispy, juicy, and drenched in sauce. Furthermore, they're a favorite of the Marlboro Man as well!

Edna Mae s Sour Cream Pancakes: Ree Drummond holds a particular place in her heart for sour cream pancakes because her grandmother-in-law passed down the recipe to her.

Perfect Iced Coffee: Ree, a self-described "freakazoid" for coffee, begins each and every day with a big glass of iced coffee that has been strongly made.

Perfect Potato Soup: Ree's flavorful potato soup is the comfort food equivalent of Goldilocks. Its texture is just right it's neither too creamy nor too lumpy.
