by J. T. Odneal
The author has lived the life of the new old West and over the years, he has saved the very best of recipes, mostly from family and friends. He has spent his life growing up and living in Colorado and Arizona, right in the heart of the new old West. His first interest is to preserve the land and live with the creatures placed there with him. He is now retired from his entrepreneurial activities of mostly real estate and ranching in his 81 years and spends his time in Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. His diversions over the years have been dancing to good, two-stepping, Western music; playing pool whenever possible; and reading a good book until sleep comes. His cooking skills were learned mostly of necessity.
His recipes in this book will not make you a chef; however, they will make your family and friends believe you are. The pages in this book are salted and peppered with tongue-in-cheek humor. He reveals secrets of cooking that regular cookbooks fail to provide. His inserted poetry will keep you reading from cover to cover.(2012, paperback, 44 pages)
