Format: Paperback
While categorized as a cookbook THE TEXAS COWBOY KITCHEN is so much more than that - it's a visual history of the Old West thanks to a series of marvelous full-page photos by famed cowboy photographer, Erwin E. Smith; it's an informative, smile provoking collection of commentary about cowboys, their lives and the famed Chisholm Trail; and a selection of over 100 mouth-watering recipes that have withstood the test of time and culinary fads.

Beginning with Starters, those tempting appetite teasers that introduce a meal, the recipes are clear, concise, brimming with preparation hints and substitution suggestions. I could make a full meal of Grady's starters - my favorite being Barbecued Quail Tamales with Avocado Cream.

Of course, early cowboys didn't enjoy the munificence of multicourse meals, but we do. Thus, there is a section titled Soups, Salads, and Sides ripe with everything good from Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus to Corn-Tomato Bisque to Bread Salad with Oven-Dried Tomatoes and Cheeses (easy, quick, and a perfect way to use day-old bread).

A special chapter holds favorite recipes from Texas chefs (not to be believed are the West Texas Brownies). Of course, cowboys loved their meat as much as we do, so we find dishes such as Calf's Liver with Sage-Buttermilk Onion Rings (the secret to the thin, crunchy crusted onion rings is club soda!) and Pat's Lamb Chops with Orange-Fig-Pecan Relish. Not to worry, fish isn't overlooked - try the Plank-Roasted Red Snapper with Citrus-Ancho Glaze.

Biscuits with a capital B! Believe someone said that a cowboy's trail breakfast consisted of biscuit and beans, his lunch consisted of biscuits and beans, his dinner was biscuits, beans, and beef.

HASH(0xa11ae210) out of 5 stars 63401cooker Jan. 13 2008
By T. VanMeter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received this cookbook as a gift for this past Christmas, and have loved trying the different recipes. Most seem to have ingredients common to our home, and they aren't difficult if you can follow instructions. The stories are very interesting, and the photos make you want to cook the recipe that day. I hadn't heard of it prior to receiving it, and within 2 weeks have cooked 5 recipes, and planning on more. Main dishes, desserts, baked goods, all with a TexMex flare. My recommendation, is go ahead and buy it.

HASH(0xa1468348) out of 5 stars Awesome recipes June 4 2008
By Kristi Sparks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wonderful, delicious recipes! Everything from drinks to desserts. I purchased this book for myself and then bought two more for my mother and mother-in-law for mother's day. My mother insisted on having it! We used several of the recipes for my husband's birthday party and the dishes were a hit. Be sure to check out the mac and cheese.

I have all three of Grady Spears' book and this is my favorite. I have tried many of the recipes and none have failed to impress. I love the onion marmalade, pan fried trout and pilconcillo pork chops. The book is full of old pictures from the Texas cattle drive days which makes the book as fun to read as it is to cook from.

I don't cook fancy. I am a better horseman than a cook. But I like to cook and lost of folks think I am a helluva cook...cowboy that is... and this cookbook is not just about cooking. Its about a way of life that we love and helped to make this country what it is. Its about decency, and freedom, and good eats. Way to go Grady! Hoorah!
