Found this cool book at the library . . .
If have a love for ranchin' and Texas you'll love this book.
I have a lot of cookbooks and read a lot of Texas Cookbooks. I have to say this one is my favorite.
The photos are great. And it isn't just a cookbook it has a lot to read.
The cover describes it as A History of Recipes and Photo's.
And it is. There are lots of photo's of horses and Cowboys, Chuck Wagons and ranching.
So far I have tested two recipes the Cowboy Beans and the Charro Beans (Mexican Bean Soup).
My new favorite Pinto Bean recipes!
The recipes are simple without a bunch of ingredients.
A few of the Chapter Titles include:
West of the Pecos: Sourdough and SOB
Chuck Wagon Cook-Offs: Biscuits,Beans and Cobbler
Powder Puffs and Spurs: Cowgirls in the Kitchen
Urban Cowboys: Honky Tonks and Hamburgers
The New Cowboy Cuisine: Dr. Pepper Tenderloin (I'll be trying this one)
From the back cover:
Home on the Range
Bring the spirit of the Wild West to your home kitchen with this easy to follow guide to hearty
cowboy cooking. . . .
. . . Through over 100 authentic recipes and 100 archival photo's, the food lore of Texas cowboys ( and cowgirls) is brought vividly to life.
This one is a must get. I'll be buying a copy at Amazon for myself and ours sons Christmas present.
