“The Christmas season is the perfect time to connect with family and friends. From small, intimate gatherings of less than a dozen to a holiday bash for a hundred, easy-to-make, delicious recipes are an important part of a successful party,” Shanna Hatfield.
A Cowboy Christmas is not just a cookbook, but a journey into a western-style Christmas. It shows how to decorate, wrap gifts, cook wonderful food and have a fun Christmas season.
Ham and Egg Breakfast Cups
I am always looking for filling breakfasts that are quick to make. In the time it took for my oven to heat up I was able to prep everything and get the egg cups ready to go in the oven. Then 20 minutes later I had a great breakfast.
The ham and egg breakfast cups are easy to eat and perfect for a breakfast on the run. These would be great for a quick family breakfast before everyone runs off to their daily life.
Cheese and crackers are always a hit around the holidays. The Ranch Crackers recipe combines the two so well. You could make these as a gift to give someone or they would be fantastic at a holiday party.
They are really simple to make but pack a lot of flavor and crunch. My cheese didn’t melt a lot but most likely because I grated mine fresh. I have stored them in an airtight container and will be eating them all week!
I have always enjoyed reading novels about cowboy life. During college I even took a road trip through South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. I still havne’t been to a dude ranch but it’s on my bucket list.
A Cowboy Christmas gives you a sneak peak into the lives of real-life ranch families. The ideas are entertaining and the recipes fulfilling. I love the recipes I tried and hope you will too.
