Editorial Reviews


"Author Sarah Penrod gives a fresh, vibrant and trendy spin on Texan cookery. Sarah is not just a pretty face but a Mom, Wife, and Serious Chef, a must have for any recipe library." -Chris Kyler, Food Network Star

“It’s easy to see that Sarah Penrod a.k.a. “The Urban Cowgirl” has a smile as wide as rainbow but when you get into this cookbook you will find substance and guidance. She has a knack for knowing how to take the intimidating out of cooking. And that is a recipe we should make every day”. — Norman Van Aken, author of My Key West Kitchen and James Beard Foundation Honoree

Sarah Penrod elevates Texas Cuisine to bright and tasty new levels of fun with just enough folklore and story-telling to make this work as entertaining as it is informative. Her flare and love for all-things-Texan shine through in this must-have addition to anyone with an appetite for Lone Star entertainin’ and cookin’!
Jon Bonnell , author, Jon Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine and Jon Bonnell’s Texas Favorites, chef and owner at Waters Bonnell’s Coastal Cuisine.

Three decades after chefs like Stephan Pyles, Dean Fearing and Robert del Grande reinvented the cuisine of Texas, Sarah Penrod makes sure with this book the culinary tumbleweed keeps on tumbling. Her creative (and fun) recipes based on Texas tastes and traditions are as much a gift as her delightful one-liners, like “Coffee is the key to survival” and “If you haven’t had guacamole in an evening gown, you’re doing something wrong.”
John DeMers, author and director of the Culinary Adventure Cooking School

A wonderful Texas culinary approach to cooking with kids and family. The best part is the appreciation for family and its tradition. That is what the urban cowgirl is all about! It's great tool for the home cook, chef and mom alike. It opened my mind to start my own family cook book with family; as chef, husband and dad to three boys it's going to be fun. With a family that loves to eat I can’t wait! Thanks Urban Cowgirl…..
Gilbert Moore, Chef Bluejack National golf club

Urban Cowgirl is Sarah Penrod from head to toe: authentic, bright, bold and playful. With her heart firmly rooted in Texan culture, Sarah manages to appeal to every reader's inner Cowgirl (or boy). "One favorite guacamole? Absurd! How about one for every occasion!" I found myself tearing through the book at full gallop, cataloging ways I could weave the vibrance that defines Sarah's lifestyle into my own. Sarah's confident femininity never masks her culinary prowess as a chef; she includes pro tips and tricks throughout the book that will make you feel equally confident in the kitchen.

Sarah's written memories bring to life her devotion to family and tradition, parking new ideas for forming my own traditions at home... with a little extra flair.
Emma Frisch, Food Network Star finalist, co-founder Firelight Camps

A true southern beauty-easy on the eyes-and she knows her way around the kitchen. Easy to follow recipes, bursting with flavor and friendly tips!
Jeff Blank – Fire-breathing Founder of Hudsons on the Bend

How bout them urban cowgirls!!!! Sarah Penrod brings her upbeat urban flair for all things Texan to cowboys and cowgirls of all backgrounds. This cookbook of Lonestar proportions is a must for any collection. Whether you’re in the city, or the pasture all Texans will be inspired by her modern, beautiful spin onfamily favorites. I’m making her Texas chicken spaghetti tonight!
Grady Spears, author The Texas Cowboy Kitchen and Cooking the Cowboy Way
