    The Western United States is the name used to refer to the Western third or half of the continguous continental United States (the exact definitions used by different people do vary). Although this region does include California, the Southwestern, and the Northwestern states, most people consider "Western cuisine" to be a distinct style separate from Californian cuisine, Southwestern cuisine, and Northwestern cuisine, and originating from other (inland) parts of the American West.

    The inland areas of the American West, tend to be (of course) known for cattle-ranching (and cowboys), are there are many foods that spring from these traditions. Some popular Western recipes and dishes include:
    • Chili con carne - A spicy stew made from chili peppers and meat, often with beans, onions and tomatoes. The question of whether to include beans and tomatoes in the recipe is a controversial one - for example, many Texans say beans should always be cooked separately from chili con carne. Chili con carne is the official dish of the state of Texas.

    • Rocky Mountain Oysters - Buffalo, boar or bull testicles. They are prepared by peeling, coating in flour and seasonings, then deep-fried (sometimes after being pounded flat). This dish is also sometimes known as "calf fries", "cowboy caviar", "Montana tendergroins", or "swinging beef".

    Product Description:
    Irresistible recipes from pantry ingredients by an authentic cowboy and TV veteran

    Whether he’s beating Bobby Flay at chicken-fried steak on the Food Network, catering for a barbecue, bar mitzvah, or wedding, or cooking for cowboys in the middle of nowhere, Kent Rollins makes comfort food that satisfies. This gifted cook, TV contestant, and storyteller takes us into his frontier world with simple food anyone can do.

    A cowboy’s day starts early and ends late. Kent offers labor-saving breakfasts like Egg Bowls with Smoked Cream Sauce. For lunch or dinner, there’s 20-minute Green Pepper Frito Pie, hands-off, four-ingredient Sweet Heat Chopped Barbecue Sandwiches, or mild and smoky Roasted Bean-Stuffed Poblano Peppers. He even parts with his prized recipe for Bread Pudding with Whisky Cream Sauce. (The secret to its lightness? Hamburger buns.) Kent gets creative with ingredients on everyone’s shelves, using lime soda to caramelize Sparkling Taters and balsamic vinegar to coax the sweetness out of Strawberry Pie.

    With stunning photos of the American West and Kent’s lively tales and poetry, A Taste of Cowboy is a must-have for everyone who loves good, honest food and wants a glimpse of a vanishing way of life.

    Product Description:
    Whether you need to get dinner on the table for your family tonight or are planning your next get-together with friends, Half Baked Harvest Cookbook has your new favorite recipe.

    Tieghan Gerard grew up in the Colorado mountains as one of seven children. When her dad took too long to make dinner every night, she started doing the cooking—at age 15. Ever-determined to reign in the chaos of her big family, Tieghan found her place in the kitchen. She had a knack for creating unique dishes, which led her to launch her blog, Half Baked Harvest. Since then, millions of people have fallen in love with her fresh take on comfort food, stunning photography, and charming life in the mountains.
     
    While it might be a trek to get to Tieghan’s barn-turned-test kitchen, her creativity shines here: dress up that cheese board with a real honey comb; decorate a standard salad with spicy, crispy sweet potato fries; serve stir fry over forbidden black rice; give French Onion Soup an Irish kick with Guinness and soda bread; bake a secret ingredient into your apple pie (hint: it’s molasses). And a striking photograph accompanies every recipe, making Half Baked Harvest Cookbook a feast your eyes, too.

There are small bites like Cod Fritters with Chipotle Tartar Sauce and Grilled Steak and Cheese Tostadas; entrees such as Red Chile Lamb Stew and Roasted Tomatillo Salmon; and even drinks and desserts for special occasions, including Strawberry Layered Tres Leches Cake. With mouthwatering recipes and evocative photography, Casa Marcela presents Mexican food in a way never seen before.

In the debut cookbook from this acclaimed restaurant, Brioza and Krasinski share recipes for their most popular dishes along with stunning photography, and inspire readers to craft an unforgettable meal of textures, temperatures, aromas, and colors that excite all of the senses.
