A healthy dose of updated ranch cuisine.
Beaumont Enterprise - Jane McBride
Yee-haw! This one's a keeper. Several things make this book appealing: the recipes are for a specific type of food so it's one you'll pull immediately, it's reasonably small and won't take too much space on the shelf, it's attractive and the stories from cowboys make for good reading.

... this one is worth checking out.

Dallas Morning News - Martha Sheridan

As enjoyable as the book is to read, it's the recipes that invoke hunger for the romance of what it must be like to dine and live like a true cowboy.

Beautifully written and photgraphed, this book is as much a delight for the palate as it is for the eyes.
