The comfort food recipes that have helped Ree Drummond become famous include macaroni and cheese, blackberry cobbler and broccoli cheese soup. Some of Drummond's other popular recipes include knock-you-naked brownies and flat apple pie.
Many of Ree Drummond's most popular comfort food recipes come from her blog, The Pioneer Woman, while others debuted on the television show of the same name. Drummond's recipes put a twist on comfort food classics. Her macaroni and cheese recipe, which originally appeared on The Pioneer Woman blog in 2009, calls for a generous amount of whole milk, salt and mustard. Drummond also recommends toppings such as crumbled bacon and gorgonzola cheese.
Blackberry cobbler is among The Pioneer Woman's most popular dessert recipes. Her comforting version calls for just five ingredients: flour, butter, sugar, blackberries and whole milk. In 2007, Drummond advised blog readers to top the cobbler with whipped cream or ice cream. The baking method involves dropping fresh berries into the uncooked batter before cooking.
Broccoli cheese soup is among Drummond's favorite comfort foods. Her recipe calls for fresh broccoli and onions, as well as grated cheese. The soup's primary spices are pepper and nutmeg. To achieve a creamy texture, Drummond suggests that home cooks put the soup in a blender.
