If you enjoy the the wind on your face and open sky before you, you have come to a good place to find the romance and flavor of the West.


Pinto Beans were a staple of the cowboy's food, particularly when he was on the trail. Beans could be easily stored and they were inexpensive. And although it probably wasn't known, they're also nutritious. Beans and cornbread make a complete protein. Here is yet another way the cook could prepare beans for the cowhands and use the leftover pinto beans.

1 cup cooked and mashed pinto beans.
1 cup sugar.
3 beaten egg yokes.
1 teaspoon vanilla.
1 teaspoon nutmeg.
Place combined ingredients in an uncooked pie crust.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Make a meringue with the leftover egg whites.
Spread over baked pie and return to oven to brown.

That's quite a recipe. I'd sure like to know how it tastes--not enough to go to the work of making it, but I'm sure curious. ~Judy

I love the wind in my face, the open sky before me, the romance and flavor of the West, but, most of all, our loving and living God, who created it all. I love how He works out His plans in the realm of human events, which is His Story. I have been blessed with a gift: a compulsion to write Historical and present-day novels set in the American West that demonstrate His power to transform ordinary people into true heroes and heroines. I am just a scribe really. I find the joy of participating in the creation of inspirational fiction indescribable. May our Lord Jesus Christ receive all of the credit and be glorified.
