Hot Toddy

Ya, you read that right.

I can remember as a child that if whatever ailed you wasn’t cured by one of these, you were surely gunna die.  haha Just kidding.  But I do remember that it seemed to be good for whatever ailed you.  Sore muscles to a stuffy nose.

So this may not be, just what the doctor ordered. But, here’s the recipe anyway.

Country Chicken Fried Steak

Now you knew at some point I would HAVE to put in Chicken Fried Steak didn’t you? 

You can’t live in the country and never have tried this one!  Here is a great variation, that almost screams perfection each and every time.

Cowboy Bread

My Aunt, Jolene Miller (Bachman), was the President of the Arizona State Cowbelles for two consecutive years, 1982 and 1983.  I would also like to mention here, that she was, Vice-President of the Arizona Cattle Industry Research & Education Foundation, Field Crop Superintendent for the Maricopa County Fair.  And she actively worked with the 4H and the FFA receiving, the Honorary Chapter Farmer Degree in 1977. 

Many years ago, I received a wonderful present from her, that I have cherished ever since.  An original cookbook of the Arizona State Cowbelles.  It’s filled with some of the most wonderful recipes ever created and it’s a collection of recipes from Cowbelles throughout the state.

From these very pages, come my next recipe.  Not that I didn’t have enough of my own to share, but this one was just too good to pass up.  It was submitted by Carole DeSpain of Snowflake, Arizona.

Ranch Hot Cocoa Mix

This is one of my little guys favorites!  He wanted me to be sure and put this in there for all the “little cowboys” like him.  He says it’s the greatest! 😀

This stores very well and is a recipe for bulk.  However, it never lasts very long around here so I can’t give you an exact shelf life. 

  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 2 cups Powdered Creamer
  • 2 cups Non-Fat Dry Milk
  • 1 1/3 cups Unsweetened Cocoa

     Mix all together until free of lumps.  Store in airtight container.  Use 2 heaping teaspoons to a cup of hot water.

     To complete the drink add mini-marshmallows to the top before serving.

Cowboy Cobbler

  • 1 quart Tomatoes
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Nutmeg
  • Pie crust

     Cut tomatoes in small pieces and mix with sugar, nutmeg.  Rinse jar with 1 cup water.  Add this water to the mixture and stir.  Put half of mixture in 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. 


Roll pie crust into a thin sheet and fit to bottom of pan.  Add tomato mixture.  Then roll crust thin and place on top to fit to dish. 

OR instead of crust, pinch dough into small dumplings and sprinkle over mixture.
