I really enjoyed to read the history behind recipes and that some of them where really specific for certain areas. As some of the ways there are cooked are not realistic in our households now the author gave other options to replace ingredients or options how to heat up things.
I liked the fact that there where whole dinners put together including desserts.

I did miss pictures. There are a few of the food in the book and I always love to compare my end result with pictures.

The recipes are not that complicated to make though. Aug 02, Jillyn rated it liked it. Thanks to my recent binge reading of romance novels, I've gotten quite the infatuation with cowboys. I also really love to cook. So, it made complete sense to me that I needed to read The Cowboy's Cookbook.
Unfortunately, it wasn't what I expected.
It's divided into sections for ease of access, such as the introduction, guide to the dutch oven, a list of cowboy slang, photos, and history. I would have rated this book higher if it was marketed as more of a food history book and not a cookbook, si Thanks to my recent binge reading of romance novels, I've gotten quite the infatuation with cowboys. I would have rated this book higher if it was marketed as more of a food history book and not a cookbook, since there was more information on history and the like and less emphasis on how to cook. It was cool learning the meaning of the slang and seeing why cowboys cooked some of the things that they did, and how they became so popular.
However, it reads more like a text book than a text book. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's not at all what I was expecting when I got this book. The recipes in this book, I can take or leave. While it was interesting to see them coupled with the history, I'm not very likely to try to make them in the future.
They were really easy, basic things such as coffee and beans. Plus, there were next to no pictures for the recipe sections. That's a really important thing to me in a cookbook, and it's another way this one fell short for me. I think this is a great book for those who are interested in Western history or food history, or for those who are looking for simple recipes to begin with. But if you're looking for a true "cookbook" with lots of recipes and pictures, maybe give this one a pass. I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.

The Cowboy's Cookbook : Sherry Monahan :
Provided by netgalley for an unbiased review. The Cowboy's Cookbook is a fun addition to the reading lists of food and history buffs alike. Down-home cooking or on-the-range cooking, to be accurate combined with interesting historical notes and anecdotes. Contains a glossary of "cowboy" phrases.
Monahan is a historian of the Old West, and The Cowboy's Cookbook is light fare compared to some of the other topics that she tackles. Sep 07, The Bookend Family rated it liked it. Either I was reading the wrong cookbooks, or else they just got a whole lot better. It also casts its net a bit more broadly, giving recipes for desserts, and more sophisticated fare.
