This fun cookbook is full of charming cooking tips and advice for catching your man’s heart—through his stomach. The belly-filling recipes will satisfy the hardest working ranch hands, cowboys, farmers, and western-loving city folks. The recipes are organized into meals from the first date and “Hand Holdin’ in the Parlor” to when it’s time for “Impressin’ the In-laws.”
The shopping list for a well-stocked western pantry will set you up for serving tasty grinds such as Sweet Potato Pancakes, All-Day Red Beans, Smothered Yardbird, Cowboy Cottage Pie, and Stewed Fruit with Sugar Dumplings when that dinner bell rings.
Kathy Lynn Wills spends her time among cattle and dogs in the dairy and rural ranchlands of Northern California, writing, cooking, and raising crops. Her blog, whatjameshadfordinner.blogspot.com, reports on her travels and, yes, nightly dinners on the farm.
