Family is always at the head of this and any celebration for this author.
There are interviews of rodeo cowboys and gals, rodeo families of their triumphs and hardships with injuries that will amaze you. She talks more about a charity near and dear to her heart, the Justin Foundation and the importance of it and how almost each of the families she has interviewed needed at a time in their life they had no place to go or a way to earn income..
Besides amazing stories, she has amazing ideas of making packages special and gorgeous, crafts to enhance the holiday and how to decorate and of course mouth watering recipes.
This book rivals those of Better Homes and Gardens holiday entertaining books and many others. This one however has love, traditions, and the heart of God that cowboys, rodeo and others rural folks like this author and husband are and their backgrounds. This is one holiday book to get the hardcover copy because you will use it over and over if only for the recipes and most likely the other fun ideas she has. I highly recommend this fantastic, special and amazing book.
I received this book as an ARC to look over. I however wasn’t asked to do a review but how could I not with all this has in it and how fabulous this celebrations book is and for the recipes alone, and well the crafts too.
The first recipe we tried was the Overnight French Toast. Oh. my. word. The ONLY thing I would change about this is the second time we made it, we added chopped pecans. It was absolutely delicious the first time around. The second time we made it, it was out of this world!
Shortly after making the French Toast, I was looking for a quick, easy supper for my 17-year-old to make as she would be the only one home to cook that night. I decided on Bunkhouse Stew. I'll be honest, no one was really excited about it, but she made it anyway. It's really good!! Everyone ended up loving it. It is nice and hearty with a really good flavor. I thought it needed a touch of salt, but otherwise it was excellent.
There are some nice treats and sweets we will probably try closer to Christmas. This is definitely not geared towards expert cooks--chicken casserole using Rice-A-Roni, Beefy Gnocchi using packaged skillet gnocchi, etc--but the recipes are simple, filling dishes you can serve to your family and friends any time.
I received a copy of this book from Rowman & Littlefield for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
A Cowboy Christmas will appeal to a number of different tastes.
First, those who want to entertain but don't feel they are very good at it. Not only will you get tips for how to successfully host a gathering, you will also get encouragement about the point of entertaining - as a hint, it isn't about you! With oodles of ideas on how to make your guests comfortable and how to make your tables look great with a minimal effort, these tips alone make it worth the purchase.
If you want ideas for recipes, there are many in here and not just the traditional ones you would expect. While some use mixes, most do not. I was surprised to find a recipe for meatloaf that doesn't use tomato products and am very excited to give it a try. Those who need to avoid gluten will find some you can make as well.
The craft ideas are also great. Some look simple to make;p all are creative.
One of my favorite sections is the gift giving one. Not only are there hints on how to wrap a package beautifully, there are also many gift ideas for those more difficult-to-shop-for people on your list.
I really enjoyed the stories in there as well. Several families shared their Christmas traditions. It was interesting to see their involvement with the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, which is no surprise considering the author's love for this foundation. The fact that they had been helped by the JCCF was simply part of their story and it was not mentioned in a way to make you think they are soliciting funds. Given that a portion of the proceeds of this book (and all others by Shanna Hatfield) will go to the charity from now through December, it is appropriately mentioned and subtle.
I plan to purchase a copy soon because I find a hardback book much easier to use than an ebook for this type of resource.
I was given a copy of this book. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.
