Really yummy recipes, but I would classify these recipes as "gourmet". In other words, it either a) takes too long to make the recipe (has too many steps) or b) the recipe uses waaaayyy too many ingredients to make it worth my time and effort. It could be that I am lazy, but I was looking for something yummy to make that wouldn't put me out too much. The pictures in this book were nice, though!
This is a great cookbook --- well, if you love meat! We've used several of the recipes in the past month and loved them all. This week was a chili made with ground turkey, pablano and jalepeno peppers - 24 sage leaves and bay leaves from our garden! If you like the flavors of the southwest, this is definitely worth a look!
This cookbook came to me - I didn't seek it out (I won in through a food blog or something). That said, I really liked it. The essay portions are a little stale (big city girl adjusts to country life), but the photos are gorgeous, and the recipes that I've tried so far have been very good.
I have been reading this cookbook cover to cover. There are funny stories throughout about this Manhattan writer with a background in cooking who left the Big Apple to become a ranch owner in the Texas Hill Country. The photography is lovely. The recipes look good- but I haven't tried any yet.
