"Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels — A Love Story" by Ree Drummond (William Morrow, $25.99) A favorite Oklahoma cook, food blogger, and cookbook author, Drummond dishes up her own life story: a move away from the big city, onto a rural cattle ranch, and into the kitchen — which, she finds, is where the magic happens.
The Watermark Pick
"Committed" by Elizabeth Gilbert (Penguin, $16) New to paperback, the best-selling author of "Eat, Pray, Love" turns her thoughtful gaze and acrostic eye onto the way we marry now: Is it a bargain? A trade-off? A form of defeat? Or is it a victory for today's busy, adventurous, and independent woman? Watermark brings Gilbert to Wichita Feb 17.
