The Pioneer Woman Forges a New Food Community

The Kitchn reports that Ree Drummond, a.k.a. the Pioneer Woman, has piggybacked off her wildly popular down-home cookin’ blog (uh, the zucchini cake with cream cheese frosting looks pretty awesome right now) to—you know it’s coming—pioneer a new website.

Tasty Kitchen is Drummond’s new site for people to share their “Favorite Recipes from Real Kitchens.” It doesn’t seem to have a lot of features that set it apart from other user-upload sites, however if the quality of recipes and photos is anything like Drummond’s, it should prove to be a good place to browse.

This raises the question of how many more new food sites/communities the Web can sustain. In a short period of time we’ve seen the Atlantic Food Channel appear, the nationalization of Grub Street, and Citysearch’s launch of the Feedbag blog (it’s also rumored to be expanding the blog to other cities). Are we going to hit critical mass soon?
