Cooking for Cowboys

Our friend and contributor O.L. Shepp who is a Wyoming blogger, writer, rancher, mother…all-around super woman…shared with me  another venture she works on. It’s called Cooking for Cowboys and I’m hooked!

Her latest post starts out, “My grandmother’s words were, ‘I’ll do the dishes, you kids go play. You have your entire lives to cook and clean.'” Words to live by!

I’m excited to try recipes such as Cowboy Cookies, “Pop’s Flop” and Cowboy Beans. She also posts perspectives on nutrition and health. Check her out!
