Friend of our community and the authors, Tommy Lee Jones, was gracious enough to write the foreword.
I think this book will be a worthy addition to any kitchen's library. Filled with a variety of recipes from main dishes-try the stacked red chile enchiladas on page 90-91 or if you want something for a family gathering I suggest the peppered tenderloin or whole rib eye pages 54-57, salads-try the cornbread salad on page 148-149, vegetables-summer squash casserole page 142-143 and the desserts-bread pudding with lemon-lime or bourbon sauce is my choice. There are also numerous other recipes that will be enjoyed at breakfast and as side dishes. The only food I didn't care for (that I had to photograph) are the turnips BUT that is because I don't like turnips.
Not only are there the many food photographs there are numerous photographs taken on ranches for the last 25 years around Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Mexico sprinkled throughout the book.
Enjoy and invite them into your kitchen! They've cooked for presidents, well known movie stars and casts of thousands of ordinary people like us.
