The Comforting Dish That Ree Drummond Calls Her 'Life'
From hosting an incredibly successful Food Network show to authoring cookbooks, Ree Drummond, a.k.a. The Pioneer Woman, has done it all to achieve the status of a celebrity within the food world. Among the many comfort food recipes that the chef has shared with the world is a dish she refers to as her “life.”
Drummond’s cozy favorite is one that not many fans would say no to: broccoli cheese soup. On her website, she explains that there's "something about it that triggers a happy, peaceful memory" every time she eats it.
The Pioneer Woman may be onto something, as employees of Panera say that broccoli cheddar soup is one of their most popular menu items. Quiznos' broccoli cheddar fares well at the chain, too, with Fast Food Nutrition finding it to be the fourth most popular order.
