For me, the term “pioneer cuisine” conjures up images of seasonal, local food that could prepared with simple appliances. Apparently, cooking like Davy Crockett means something else entirely on Pinterest.
Did the King of the Wild Frontier had access to olives? Perhaps.
The Pioneer Woman blog, where the recipe originated, uses its brand pretty loosely. The purpose of the blog, according to Ree Drummond (said Pioneer Woman): “Here, I write daily about my long transition from spoiled city girl to domestic country wife.” I just love it when an entrepreneur, author and TV personality running a million-dollar brand calls herself a “domestic country wife.”
If you want to appeal to that conservative, middle-America “country wife” crowd, I guess you can’t stray too far from conservative gender norms. God forbid you call yourself a business woman, or even a “work at home mom”. You just keep shoehorning yourself into that SAHM audience any way you can.
I guess, as a spoiled city girl who has to buy her olives at the store rather than grow them herself (as I assume this “Pioneer Woman” does), I just don’t understand.
