Ree Drummond Pokes Fun At 'Lack Of Professionalism' In Self-Shot Cooking Show

Popular blogger and Food Network personality, Ree Drummond, knew that she would have to find innovative ways to film her show after COVID-19 brought everything to a halt. A 2021 blog post on The Pioneer Woman website reveals more details of how she faced that challenge. Without her crew, Drummond turned to her family members for help and her kids happily pitched in, filming videos from their Oklahoma ranch and sharing fun snippets with fans on social media. 

For example, in June last year, The Pioneer Woman posted an Instagram video of herself in the kitchen, handling burnt marshmallows on toast. She jokingly captioned it, "Filming went great today." Her fans loved how relatable the content was and praised Drummond for being so transparent on social media. 

The blogger's self-shot cooking show, while enjoyed by many, does get some complaints from viewers. Drummond has taken to Instagram to address those who are unhappy with how messy the show can get at times.

Ree Drummond takes a humble approach

Ree Drummond posted to Instagram that, while she often receives encouraging responses from her followers, there are times when she gets negative comments. She explained, "While most of the feedback I receive on our self-shot cooking show is positive, I do hear from the occasional viewer who takes issue with the lack of professionalism and decorum displayed in the kitchen." She added that this comment didn't make sense to her for a long time — until she saw a few goofy clips from the show.

The Pioneer Woman attached a video clip from the kitchen for reference, sharing a clip of her finishing off a chicken pot pie. Her daughter and son-in-law are then seen competing to sample the dish, running around the counter, and even wrestling. The scene prompted Drummond to comment, "I didn't really invite you guys on my side of the counter, by the way...I just asked who wanted to try it first." 

Such goofy moments, however, are a big hit among fans who seem to appreciate the reality of filming a show from home. One follower said, "I love the laid back vibe much better than the professional version! Love seeing the kids! You do you!!!" Another commentator advised the blogger, "Real life is the best! Keep it up and enjoy all the memories you and the kids have made."
