    I first discovered Five Marys Farms on social media about four years ago. Business-savvy Mary Heffernan has created a strong brand for her family’s ranch and followers enjoy peeking behind the scenes at the ranch and the daily routine with all four daughters (all named Mary—they go by middle/nicknames). Mary and Brian started from scratch raising livestock in a small town after leaving the Silicon Valley where Brian was a successful lawyer and Mary had several businesses. Five Marys Ranch Raised I first discovered Five Marys Farms on social media about four years ago. Business-savvy Mary Heffernan has created a strong brand for her family’s ranch and followers enjoy peeking behind the scenes at the ranch and the daily routine with all four daughters (all named Mary—they go by middle/nicknames). Mary and Brian started from scratch raising livestock in a small town after leaving the Silicon Valley where Brian was a successful lawyer and Mary had several businesses. Five Marys Ranch Raised Cookbook is an excellent collection of recipes, lovely photographs, and brief notes about their daily life and their goals as ranchers. The book is divided into eight chapters: Breakfast, Appetizers, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Sides, Cocktails, and Dessert. Stand-out recipes for me: *brown-butter waffles with brown-sugar bananas *caramelized onion dip with garden vegetables *rancher’s pie *sweet-and-spicy baby back ribs *spicy lamb meatballs with cucumber-mint tzatziki *roasted cauliflower with buffalo sauce *ranch 75 mimosas *sweet drop biscuits with grilled peaches and cream Most of the recipes are slight spins on fairly popular dishes. While there isn’t anything super unique here, the book has a great design lay-out and all recipes have easily obtainable ingredients, simple instructions, and the few I’ve personally tried so far have been delicious! Thanks to Sasquatch Books and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review. Five Marys Ranch Raised Cookbook is scheduled for release on September 8, 2020.

    I loved the story of this family who gave up their life in suburbs and went all in on owning a ranch. Granted, they had the financial means to do so. Most of us are not blessed with being that fortunate. But I loved the quest for more simple Life. Sections include breakfast, appetizers, beef, pork, lamb, sides, cocktails and desserts. The recipes and photos were fantastic. From biscuits to homemade English muffins and sesame lime pork lettuce cups to jalepeno poppers, the variety was immense but I loved the story of this family who gave up their life in suburbs and went all in on owning a ranch.

I will definitely be purchasing a physical copy of this book. My only complaint: no chicken section but that won't impact my rating.

    I'm buying this one, if only for the pictures alone. The recipes are great, but what I loved about the book itself is that Mary does not have her kids runway ready in the photos. All of her girls have messy braids, their clothes aren't white and perfectly pressed. They're barefoot, mismatched, and dirty to some degree. It was so refreshing. Her recipes took on the same air. There isn't a hint of pretentiousness anywhere in this book and I'm pretty sure I saw dishes in the sink in one of the phot I'm buying this one, if only for the pictures alone.

And it doesn't hurt that she included a rhubarb cheesecake recipe too❤

Due out 8th Sept 2020 from Sasquatch Books, it's 288 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats. This is such a lovely book, written with warmth and generousity, full of well developed recipes with a quintessentially American farmland flavor and hospitality that it's impossible not to like it. The book is lavishly illustrated, showing the Heffernan family, pets, lifestyle, stock, and surroundings in gorgeous detail. The book is laid out logically and accessibly. An introduction/bio for the Heffernan's journey from being yuppies (he ran his own law firm, she was an entrepreneur) to ranchers was interesting and provided some salient philosophical takeaways. The recipes are arranged roughly thematically: breakfasts, appetizers/small bites, beef, pork, lamb, sides, beverages, and desserts. Ingredient measurements are supplied in American measurements only. There is an included conversion chart for metric measures in the back of the book. Descriptions are contained in the header for each recipe. The nutritional information is not included. Extra tips or recipe alternatives are listed in headers with the recipe descriptions. The recipes themselves are beautifully finished with lots of nice unexpected juxtapositions of flavor and texture (citrus and crisp fried Brussels sprouts, lamb loin served with a green olive and orange relish - amazing and delicious). The recipes are (obviously) meat heavy, it's a ranch cookbook. There are a fair number of meat-free recipes however, and the overall quality of the writing and neat and hearty fusion style of the foods will allow vegetarians a surprising amount of use for the recipes in the book - notably all of the sauces, condiments, dressings, marinades, and other flavor enhancers (and there are a pile of them) can be adapted to meat-free uses. The production values are top notch, and yes, the book shows a jealousy inducing "instagram perfect" family (as I look around at my messy kitchen countertops and wash my 3rd load of laundry for the day), however, it's honestly written with such warmth and candor that I found myself admiring them reaching for (and apparently working together to achieve) their dreams and raise their lovely family in a gorgeous rural setting. The photography is abundant and gorgeous and adds a lot to the recipes. Serving suggestions are beautifully presented and appropriate. Five stars. I'll be buying my own copy. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

Get ready to fall in love with ranch life, hearty recipes, and the Five Marys. First off, there are five gals names Mary in this family - MaryFrances or "Francie, MaryMarjorie or "Maisie", MaryJane or "JJ" and MaryTeresa or "Tessa". All are being raised as "free-range kids" on a ranch in California. I loved the backstories of the ranch and the restaurant they own. I did laugh when they said that their "cosy cabin" was 700 sqft, but I guess that 6 people in the space can be cosy. I especially loved the back story about tractor driving daughters as that is how my mom learned to drive The recipes are VERY meat-centric, which will piss off vegetarian and vegans but they LIVE ON AND RUN A RANCH!! (I have yet to meet ..meat?... a vegan who has a sense of humour!) The recipes look yummy - I am not a huge "red" meat eater - I eat tonnes of fish and a chicken,, but would never turn down a burger and their burger with bacon jam in there looks amazing. I also adore lamb so perhaps when I am getting a salary I can afford some and make and inhale it using these recipes. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "🙏-ed Social Influencer Millennials/#BachelorNation survivors/Tik-Tok and YouTube Millionaires/etc. " on Instagram and Twitter... Get a real job, people!) so let's give it 🍖🥩🍗🐑

    I hadn't heard of Five Marys Ranch prior to picking this up. This is almost two books. First, the family's backstory. That's great - really inspiring and interesting at this point in time. The writer's tone is great, almost like you're talking to a friend. The recipe part is OK. The recipes are hearty and good, meant to evoke ranch life. But if you've got some of the Pioneer Woman's cookbooks, you may have a lot of these recipes. In general, I have versions of most of these recipes already.

The tips and notes (like on beef) are unique and interesting. The best chapters in here are the beef and appetizer chapters. There is a photo for each recipe, and the book in general is beautifully photographed. This is almost more of a book to read when you're in the mood for something comforting and hearty (I would love to visit their ranch!). As a go-to cookbook, the recipes aren't really as quick or healthy as I like to cook on a regular basis. But this is worth checking out for the backstory and food guidance.

Recipes from breakfast, shareable hors’ d'oeuvres, meats, side dishes, drinks, and desserts from the Heffermans, natural business owners who give it up, pull stakes, and move their family to live on a ranch in Northern California that produces cows, sheep, and pigs, and welcomes guests for classes and sharing in their bounty.

It all seems rurally idyllic, like the Pioneer Woman, but more bougie, less hokey, and there's no recipe that's too much more exotic than a charcuterie board, steak carpaccio, and zabaglione.

    I had first seen this cookbook on Ballerina Farmers instagram stories and knew it had to be a good cookbook. Since I got the book, I have made a few of the recipes and my family loved them. My favorite one that we've tried is making the butter. We have a store that sells heavy cream straight from the dairy farm and the butter was outstanding. It has now become one of our favorite things to make and my daughter loves to make it too.

    I'm obsessed with everything to do with this cookbook and farm. From great recipes, the fabulous photography, to the little girls working the farm with their parents. I follow them on Instagram now and highly recommend owning the cookbook to keep for reference for a long time. This is one I will keep on a kitchen shelf.

    I dream about returning to my roots and living back on the farm. The amazing food here reminds me of some of my favourite dishes. With a nod to her daughters and animal friends on the farm, this cookbook has a bit of country sass. Highly recommended
