From the Barrel Racer cocktail (whiskey and powdered doughnuts) to slow-cooker stews and casseroles perfect for feeding the crowd on branding days to cast-iron recipes perfect for a pack trip into the mountains, Cowgirls in the Kitchen includes all the recipes that the modern cowgirl needs to keep her crew fed and her family happy. Combines the best of cowgirl myths, nostalgia, and legends with useable, delicious, and fun recipes for use at home or on the trail, this book celebrates the romance of the American cowgirl from the late nineteenth century to today, through historic photographs and modern, western-themed recipes that will appeal to cowboys, as well.
