I want to be a real cowboy girl
and wear all the buckles and straps
and know how it feels to wear spurs on your heels
then strut around in my chaps.
I want to tote a six-shooter too.
wear a belt that is four inches wide
then ride like the deuce on a buckskin cayuse
with a cowboy I love at my side.
  —C. Prentis Forrester
Cowgirl, make a meal at a gallop and make it look easy!
Take a dash of western myth, a sprinkle of vintage photographs, and a dollop of tall tales, simmer with a delicious selection of western recipes, and, voila—The Cowgirl’s Cookbook. From Cow Punchers Punch to June’s Ranch Beans, Cackleberries on Toast to Cowgirl Crude Salsa, Fit for a Queen Green Chili Soup to Texas Two-Step Blackberry Dumplings, these hearty fixins will feed a city girl’s fantasy as well as a country boy’s belly.
Whether home is on the prairie or you’ve got Big Sky dreams, it’s time to rustle up your inner cowgirl and hit the range. These recipes ain’t just for trail drives no more!
