Books We Love: Cowgirls Cook For The Great Outdoors

|

Cowgirls Cook for the Great Outdoors is a wonderfully crafted slice of American culture. The pictures and stories between recipes weave the scent of something fantastic cooking. Readers will want to follow that scent to the more than ninety recipes included in the colorful book. 

There are easy-to-follow recipes for every meal of the day. Start the morning with the a recipe for chicken and waffles with homemade gravy, cornmeal and banana tacos, or sunrise scones. For lunch, there are recipes for curried chicken salad wraps and no mayo red potato salad. For dinner, Dutch oven chicken pot pie and grilled potato planks.  Cowgirls Cook for the Great Outdoors also features recipes for a myriad of dips, barbeque sauces, desserts, and drinks. All the dishes are designed to be made by the modern cowgirl cooking for herself or her crew on the trail or around the campfire. 

The historic photographs of cowgirls serving meals at various Old West ranches, cooking over an open fire, and at county fairs where their jams, preserves, and vegetables were displayed, along with the poems and stories of picnics in the wilderness add to the pleasure of Stanford and Johnson’s cookbook. The brilliant images of the prepared dishes also enhance the reading.  

Cowgirls Cook for the Great Outdoors is irresistible.
