Discovery-owned Food Network has signed a new multi-year content deal with food blogger, cookbook author and entrepreneur Ree Drummond.

Drummond (pictured) is a writer and photographer. Her blog, ThePioneerWoman.com, showcases her cooking, photography and anecdotes about country living as a ranch wife and mother of four. She launched the site in 2011 and has been a Food Network staple ever since.

The new deal will include new episodes of her existing daytime series The Pioneer Woman on Food Network.

“Ree Drummond’s incredible following and popularity has led her from a small-town blogger to successful entrepreneur with a hotel, restaurant and general store, author of several cookbooks and quarterly magazine, a line of best-selling cookware and more. But she never deviates from her roots, always sharing a passion for food and cooking for her loved ones,” said Food Network president Courtney White in a statement. “With this new deal she will be able to continue to connect with Food Network’s viewers offering more of her accessible cooking style and family-focused country life.”

“After all these years together, Food Network is like family to me,” added Drummond. “There’s nowhere else I’d rather be when it comes to sharing the things that are most important to me: food, friends, community, family — and don’t forget fun.”
