Five Marys Family Style: Recipes and Traditions from the Ranch is the second excellent cookbook from Mary Heffernan who includes recipes from her entire family which includes four daughters, all named Mary, as well as herself and her husband Brian. This cookbook includes 17 menus that reflect the ranch lifestyle. The recipes are written in the traditional manner and are easy to follow. What is most important, however, is that the recipes are very appealing. There is a menu for every hostess who wants to have guests for dinner not only for special occasions and holidays, but anytime.

This cookbook includes beautiful photographs, not only of the mouthwatering dishes, but also the family (adorable daughters, animals, ranch scenery, and other fun subjects) ranch; there are vignettes and stories of life on the ranch, which makes this cookbook one that can be read while curled up in a corner. It is well-written and interesting.

What’s nice about this cookbook is that the menus are not only doable, but the dishes go together well, so it takes the task of finding side dishes or desserts to go with the main dish. The main dishes are not too fancy so everyone will like them, especially the cook because they are easy to prepare. This is a fun cookbook to add to a first-rate cookbook collection. It’s a fun one to cook from.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
