The Pioneer Woman's Kitchen Collection at Walmart
{Recipe: Ree's Mexican Rice}

The Pioneer Woman's - NEW Kitchen Collection: dinnerware, cookware, bakeware, serveware, cast iron pieces, kitchen tools, and more!  #sponsored 
It's here the NEW Pioneer Woman Kitchen Collection Line!!! If you're a reader (who isn't) of the Pioneer Woman's Blog then you know she has been teasing us the last couple of months, with bits and pieces from her new Kitchen Collection. I was super excited when I heard Ree was coming out with a kitchen line. 

My initial thought was I hope her new line reflects all the country charm and vintage feel that I love so much about her blog. And second hopefully her kitchen assortment would be affordable, so everyone could enjoy it. I try not to get super excited about new kitchen gadgets and such when they first come out, because honestly, they are always so pricey that I can't ever afford them.  

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to preview a few pieces from The Pioneer Woman's New Collection, which will be in stores on September 14th, and I was very impressed. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that everything was very affordable, and available at Walmart! Every piece in Ree's collection is not only beautiful, but also very functional. 

Each piece in her collection are items that I would use on a daily basis. Nothing crazy or over the top. One of my favorite things about her dinnerware and serve ware is that each piece is simple enough for casual dinners, and fancy enough for entertaining. And best of all, all of the kitchen and dining pieces are mix and match so you'll get the perfect look every time!!!!   

Red is my favorite color and the color of my kitchen, so I knew I would fall in love with the Butterfly Vintage Speckle Frying Pan Set  ($29.72). Each fry pan set comes with two pans that measure 11 inches & 9 inches, and are made of durable enameled porcelain, with a non stick finish. The fry pans also have heat resistant - silicone handles, and the pans are oven and dishwasher safe. You gotta love that.

I took the fry pans for a test run and made Ree's Mexican Rice from her "Food From My Frontier Cookbook".  The pans are sturdy, light weight, and nothing stuck to the pan. In fact the Spanish rice just slid right out. 

I love all the personal little touches that Ree has added. Just look at that cute little butterfly on the side of the fry pans. It's little special touches like this that I love. 

There's also fun little personal signatures on her Rustic Silicone Utensil Sets.  Live, Laugh .... and Lick the Spoon! I love that so much detail went into the development of each piece. 

There are so many dinnerware designs to choose from. If you like flowers then this Vintage Bloom 12 Piece Dinnerware Set  is a great choice. 

My favorite is the Paige 12 - Piece Crackle Glaze Dinner Ware Set  in RED of course!!! I'm almost positive the dinnerware set was named after her sweet daughter Paige. Each 12 piece stoneware set includes: 4 - Dinner Plates, 4 - Salad Plates, and 4 Bowls. Each set is priced at $44.92 which is very reasonably.   

A few other pieces are this Flea Market Cow Creamer that comes in red, teal or floral and these timeless turquoise glass Adeline Sundae Bowls. The blue glassware is so pretty, and a few of the pieces come in blue, turquoise and plum. 

If you're familiar with the Pioneer Woman than you know she is obsessed with Mason Jars!!! I have to say I'm a little obsessed myself, so I was excited to see this 32 oz Mason Jar Set  was included in her collection. Once again Ree has made sure to add more of her personal touches with these embossed blue mason jars that say, "Simple Homemade Goodness"  with that cute little butterfly. A set of 4 are priced at $21.84 which is an awesome deal. 

Before I wrap things up I couldn't help, but to share a few of my favorite pieces from The Pioneer Woman's Collection. By far my favorite is the Flea Market Collection, so I will definitely being purchasing the red polka dot batter bowl, covered butter dish ( This butter dish is a must have ), decorative canister set, colorful mixing bowls, and the cake stand. As you can see I chose lots of RED, and all the pieces are interchangeable!!

I mentioned above that I made Ree's Mexican Rice from her cookbook "Food From My Frontier", so I'm sharing the recipe below. Enjoy!!! 

Mexican Rice - The Pioneer Woman 

2 - tablespoons canola oil
1 - onion, chopped
3 - garlic cloves, minced
2 - cups long grain rice
1 - 10 ounce can Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
1 - 14.5 ounce can whole tomatoes 
1 - teaspoon ground cumin 
1/4 - teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 - teaspoon kosher salt
2 - 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

Place the oil in a large skillet over med-high heat.  Add the onion and garlic, and cook for 3-4 minutes. 

Reduce heat to low and add the rice. Cook over low heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly so the rice doesn't burn. Add the Rotel, tomatoes, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt. 

Stir to combine and cook for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups of broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes more, or until the rice is done. 

Add more broth as needed, the rice should not be sticky. Just before serving sprinkle fresh cilantro on top.

My local store has a ton of her new items in stock, and is re-stocking items online, so I hope everyone will check out The Pioneer Woman's new collection. I can tell you it's so much more beautiful seeing it all in person. Which ever of the pieces are your favorite you can find everything you need for cooking, dining, and entertaining at an affordable price with The Pioneer Woman at Walmart.

WHERE are those gorgeous canisters????? I have been waiting to order them for weeks but they are NOT there! Tina, you have them pictured on your post for today - did you find them? Thanks

Michelle Mccarn said... #

I was wondering about the canisters too! Can't find them :(

Tina Butler said... #

I haven't found The Flea Market Tin Canisters either. These are one of the PW items that are not sold online :( it states only in store, so I guess we will all have to wait and see if we can see them on the shelves. I have them on my post listed as one of my favorite items I will be purchasing. Here is the link to the canisters.

Great! I like the recipe, it is easy and quick. But still thinking to have meat added, like ham or sausages. :)

I LOVE her new line! Seeing it in person was a changer for me, now I want it all!! I love the attention to details and everything just has her charm. I refrained from buying anything but I can't stop thinking about it. I need to go back and get a little something...maybe even purchase something each time I visit Walmart.

I agree Melissa that is what I will have to do is get a piece at a time. After I saw your store photo I went to mine Sunday to get some lunch items for my kids and bammmmmmmmmm a whole isle of PW stuff. I was so excited.
