Ree Drummond's The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime: Comfort Classics, Freezer Food, 16-Minute Meals, and Other Delicious Ways to Solve Supper! was the top-selling print cookbook of 2015, selling nearly 570k copies, according to Nielsen BookScan, which tracks about 80% of print book sales.
Two other Drummond cookbooks were among the top ten, adding just shy of another quarter million print copies, combined.
Overall, the year's bestselling cookbook list looks much like last year's, with five of this year's top titles appearing on last year's as well: Thug Kitchen, Ina Garten's Make it Ahead, Gina Homolka's The Skinnytaste Cookbook, and two of Drummond's titles made the cut for the second year in a row.
Among the books new to the list this year are Inspiralized by Ali Maffucci, a cookbook for use with the inspiralizer kitchen gadget; Blue Jean Chef: Delicious Under Pressure, Meredith Laurence's second pressure cooker cookbook; The Food Lab, a hefty, scientific take on the hows and whys of cooking by Serious Eats managing culinary director J. Kenji Lopez-Alt; and Franklin Barbecue, Texas barbecue giant Aaron Franklin's "meat-smoking manifesto."
