A beautiful, full-color collection of 100 tasty, simple recipes for unforgettable meals and gatherings from the enormously popular star of the 90's sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond and current ABC sitcom The Middle and Food Network’s Patricia Heaton Parties.
A busy working mother raising four boys, Patricia Heaton couldn’t be more comfortable playing "America’s mom" on hit television shows such as Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle. Though she may be a Hollywood star today, this down to earth, practical Midwesterner likes to have fun entertaining her loved ones and has never forgotten her roots.
Growing up in the suburbs of Cleveland in the 1960s, Patricia’s hard-working parents—like the characters she plays on TV—didn’t have a lot of extra money. With five kids to raise, extras like movies and restaurant meals were special treats. Home cooked dinners were rib-filling basics: meatloaf, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken, pork chops, burgers, fish sticks, and pot roast. Yet her mother didn’t let a tight budget stop her from dreaming big, inspired by Julia Child.
On her Food Network show Patricia Heaton Parties, Patricia celebrates her culinary beginnings, transforming familiar American fare into delicious, sophisticated, lightened versions for entertaining family and friends. In this fabulous cookbook, Patricia shares her budget-friendly, simple, and deeply satisfying recipes. Some will be on the healthier side, and all will be inspired by the dishes she loved growing up, the favorites she’s relied on to feed her hungry boys, and the scrumptious showstoppers she serves at her fun-filled, casual parties and get-togethers.
Patricia Heaton’s Food For Family And Friends features 100 recipes for appetizers, sides, and main dishes, as well as cocktails and "guest goodies"—little treats to send home with your guests, including:
Pot Roast and Roasted Root Vegetable Hash with Poached Eggs
Patricia provides readers with the tools for everything to make it easy to pull it all together with sample menus, kitchen setup, and tips for getting organized. Best of all, she spices it up with hilarious stories, family photos, and anecdotes from her Hollywood career.

Come an' Get It was the most familiar and welcome call on the range era of the great trail drives following the Civil War. In this entertaining volume, Ramon F. Adams, author of the popular Western Words, tell the story of the old cowboy cooks, and the result is another highly original contribution to the folklore of the cattle country.
Although the cowboy cleared the Southwestern frontier of savage Indians and opened the land for settlement, the cook and his commissary contributed greatly to the success of the operation; for as an army depends upon its mess-kitchens, so the cowboys depended upon the chuck wagon. Without it, there would have been to trail drives to rescue Texas from bankruptcy following the Civil War, no roundups to speed the development of the cattle industry, and no beef for the heavily populated areas of the United States.
The author records the place and influence of the range cook upon Western life. He discusses the functions of "coosie," the food he served, and his methods of preparing it-giving recipes for sourdough biscuits, fluff-duffs, son-of-a-bitch stew, and other distinctive dishes of the range. He describes, too, "the wagon," its evolution, and its place in the hearts of the men who called it home.
Although there remain a few chuck wagons on the larger ranches today, they have become so scarce that one is rarely seen except in a museum or a rodeo parade, and the younger generation of cooks, like the cowboys themselves has been tamed.
Every cook was a "character," perhaps with reason, for no man ever worked under greater difficulties or with fewer conveniences. Anecdotes and incidents which illuminate the idiosyncrasies of these "Sultans of the Skillets" are recounted with gusto.
Nick Eggenhofer's drawings help Mr. Adams bring the cook and his accoutrement vividly to life.
