    Failure as cookbook, health guide

    Reactions to COOKING FOR KIDS AND COWBOYS tend to fall into two camps: those who love the Imuses support the book, those who detest them don't. I'll try to make this a straightforward review. Anyone who knows nutrition would have problems with the ingredients proposed here. While the author espouses a holistic approach to food, she actually uses substances--onion powder, for God's sake--one wouldn't want to find in a fast food restaurant. A vegetarian myself, I try to make the food at least palatable when I have others for dinner. Unfortunately these dishes are very, very bland and could have the opposite effect on children and encourage bad choices and obesity. One more note: why does the author think PROCESSED FOOD of any kind should be an ingredient??? Dear Lord, that's more toxic than meat itself. I must also point out cooking times. While it is commendable not to overcook veggies, the same cannot be said for--believe it or not--brown rice and other starches. Yet that is what is suggested here. Finally, I agree with the author that chemicals and other environmental toxins may cause cancer, but she apparently is ignorant of the fact that we, to date, don't have any reliable studies to back up her claims. In sum, this is a bad book not because of who wrote it but because of its poor content.

    Decent cookbook but somewhat overrated.

    The book is enjoyable and the recipies I've tried are certainly good but I don't see the reason for all the fawning. It's a decent book, no more no less. It doesn't rate up there with the DaVinci Code. I guess you've got to be an Imus family fan to give it five stars.

    A book you'll cherish over and over again!

    Until I purchased this book I'd never heard of The Imus Ranch or the wonderful things the ranch does to contribute to the well being of kids with cancer, SIDS or serious blood disorders. The ranch offers children the opportunity to experience the great American cowboy way in a setting that allows them and their families to forget about health issues and enjoy life as its meant to be enjoyed. This book is chock full of recipies that are healthy and easy to make as well as insights about the ranch and first hand experiences from the kids and families who have benefited from staying at the Imus Ranch. The author deserves a round of applause for not only dedicating her life to supporting kids with illnesses we'd never wish upon our worst enemies, but for donating all of the proceeds of the book to insure that a kid with a debilitating disease such as SIDS or cancer can 'get away from it all' and enjoy life at the Imus Ranch. In a society where everyone's out for themselves trying to make a quick buck, its refreshing to see people like the author of Cooking for Kids and Cowboys dedicating their lives in an attempt to make the lives of a child with such horrible circumstances better, if only for a little while!

    WELL, THE BINDING IS ATTRACTIVE.....

    The average person can't afford many of these dishes (check the price of 'organic' in your local grocery); the 2 dishes a did try for myself were bland at best and took way too much time to prepare. If you're thinking of buying this to help the Imus Ranch, send a check instead and find a decent cookbook.

    Write a check to the Ranch

    The recipes (tried several) are nothing special. Get the classic SW cookbooks instead. The ranch is a fine thing but way over the top price wise ($25 million for 500 kids = $50,000 for a week at the ranch). If you endorse the ranch, write them a check and forget the book. But then you would forego the hilarious Charles McCord essay.

    Great Book, Great Story, Great Eats.

    A wonderful book EVEN if you have a problem with her old man! As for the food being too expensive, think about those doctor bills from all those Mickey D's. ALL PROFIT FROM THIS BOOK GOES TO IMUS RANCH!!! Such a deal. Oy vey!
