From refreshing beverages to packable stews and casseroles perfect for feeding the crowd on branding days to cast-iron recipes perfect for a pack trip into the mountains, Cowgirls Cook for the Great Outdoors features more than ninety recipes that the modern cowgirl needs to keep her crew fed and her family happy on the trail or around the campfire. Start your day with the Cowgirl's Easy Chicken and Waffles, or Beer Batter Pancakes with Citrus Bourbon Syrup. Fill your backpack with Cowgirl Jill's Beef Jerky or Pack Mule Cookies for a snack on-the-go. And as the sun sets in the west, enjoy a Camp Kebabs, Smokey Beans, or Hearty Dutch Oven Nachos with a cold glass of "moonshine" around the campfire. No matter how you spend the day in the great outdoors, these dishes will fill your belly and feed your soul!
