I'm always on the lookout for anything cowgirl related. I love cowgirl quotes and vintage cowgirl pics. I think I might possibly have lived in the wild west days in my previous life. :)
I recently met fellow cowgirl, Jill Charlotte Stanford, who found me through my blog. She hails from Sisters, Oregon, and is the author of this very cool cookbook:
Not only is it chock full of great cowgirl cuisine, but it is has a heaping helpin' of great cowgirl pics and quotes. It was a really fun read and I found more than a few recipes that I am going to try (how about Kickin' Apple Pie Enchiladas? I'm going to try these soon!)
This from the back of the book: "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."
You can order the book through Amazon. I think this would be a great gift for anyone, or even a gift for yourself! Maybe as a birthday or housewarming gift - tucked inside a basket with a few of the fixins' for some of these great recipes.
I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the book:
"Don't screw with me, fellas.
This ain't my first time
at the rodeo."
