I absolutely enjoy reading this cookbook. It covers an interesting mix of food and family life. She starts out as a single, vegetarian food snob in Los Angeles. Decides to move to Chicago. But before leaving she meets the man of her dreams. Then ends up married and living on a
cattle ranch. Her husband is a meat eating cowboy she calls, the Marboro Man. She eventually gives up being a vegetarian. Her mission becomes to create delicious food that they both can enjoy.
Many of the recipes are hearty foods that I think of as comfort food.
From breakfast to supper you’ll find something to enjoy. Some of the
foods she includes are Basic Breakfast Potatoes, Cinnamon Rolls,
Marmalade Muffins; for lunch, Spicy Pulled Pork, Beans and Cornbread,
Potato Leek Pizza; for dinner, Chicken-Fried Steak, Meatloaf, Twice-Baked
Potatoes and much more. Each recipes has step-by-step illustrations.
This book has the feel of a family album. It’s filled with food and
stories of her family and friends. Life on the ranch looks good. I hope you enjoy it.
