    This recipe collection includes a brief recipe introduction telling a story or associated memory for each contribution. Readers will likely be disappointed no photographs of the foods grace the pages. Photographs and brief biographies of contributing authors appear after the recipe section and before the credits and index. Many recipes are similar to recipes already in my collection, but there are a few "new-to-me" recipes that sound interesting enough to try.

Readers will likely be disappointed no photographs of the foods grace the pages. Photographs and brief biographies of contributing authors appear after the recipe section and before the credits and index. Many recipes are similar to recipes already in my collection, but there are a few "new-to-me" recipes that sound interesting enough to try. I recognized Sandra Dallas, Stephen Bly, Anne Hillerman, and a couple other contributors, but most recipes came from unknown-to-me authors. Writing tips from some authors are interspersed throughout the book. Western readers who enjoy cooking as well as cookbook collectors will enjoy this volume. I won a copy of the book through a GoodReads giveaway. Winners are encouraged but not required to write reviews. (3.5 stars)

    As someone who has lived in rural cowboy country, this seemed like a book put together by a group of writers who wanted to publish something but didn't want to do too much work. I love a good cookbook, especially when it's full of anecdotes, stories, history, odd information, and fun side notes. And recipes, but that's not why I enjoy a cookbook, although good ones are everything.

And recipes, but that's not why I enjoy a cookbook, although good ones are everything. This cookbook seemed a little light in the recipes, although there were a few that were good but nothing special that I hadn't seen many places before. And the writing, oddly since it was compiled by a writer's group, wasn't that special, either. Just seemed like you could find more complete, interesting stories and recipes on any number of blogs and websites.

    Very entertaining read. Great collection of recipes. More importantly than owning this cookbook, are the stories that go along with the recipes. Members of the Western Writers of America came together to contribute dishes representing all areas of the U.S. Original family recipes passed down through generations, recipes gathered from neighbors, and unique dishes from friends who live in far away places. From the traditional to the highly unusual, you'll find recipes for every taste. I'm definite Very entertaining read. Great collection of recipes.

From the traditional to the highly unusual, you'll find recipes for every taste. I'm definitely tackling the mesquite flour cornbread. How about Pinto Bean Cake? Fried avocado. Bison stew! An added bonus is the writing advice. I am thrilled to be included in this great collection. You can find my grandmother's cherry salad on page 67!

    I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. Should be interesting adapting these recipes for smaller meals. Not sure I will ever be feeding a crew. Even so, I look forward to trying a few.

    A bit light on the writing wisdom and anecdotes, but there are a few unusual recipes such as Pinto Bean Cake and fried avocado. Thanks for sending me a copy through Giveaways.
