The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys by Deirdre Imus
To some, a vegan cattle ranch may seem a contradiction in terms -- but then so would a place where desperately ill children discover their true strength by learning to ride horses and rope calves. Welcome to the Imus Ranch, 4,000 acres set in the mesa country of Santa Fe, NM. Children who visit the Ranch work with authentic western ranch hands and gain a firsthand insight into life as a cowboy. The children leave stronger than when they came, with a sense of accomplishment and pride in their new abilities. Here are 125 recipes: from blueberry pancakes, sloppy joes, and red chili enchiladas to chicken-less pot pie, bbq, cookies, and rice pudding, are guaranteed to please the whole family. Color photos. Letters from the children who have visited.
