Great Texas Cook book
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when ordering this book to review! It was not disappointing!! Ever since we had a cowboy and Texas birthday I have fallen in love with Texan cooking. I have read, cooked, in this delightful book, The Homesick Texan's Family Table by Lisa Fain.
Her recipes are very authentic, and the photographs are beautiful. It really made me want to go Chile hunting but I made do with substitutes. It was great to learn that Cowboy cookie is actually Texan. Also I loved the photographs of Texas. someday I have to go there! The Homesick Texan Cookbook not only makes you want to cook, it makes you want to head for Texas at the first opportunity.
This cookbook has a lot of old Texas favorites but also some with a kick such as scalloped potatoes with chili( so good!)You will not be disappointed in this purchase. I love this book! Every recipe works and works beautifully.This is a great cookbook.
There are few things finer than a delicious, homemade meal shared with family and friends. Take it from Lisa Fain, a seventh-generation Texan who loves to cook and serve up the best dishes her home state has to offer—even though she now lives half a country away.
The Homesick Texan’s Family Table showcases more than 100 of Lisa’s best and most-loved recipes, ranging from down-home standards (think cheesy nachos, comforting chicken and dumplings, and fiery wings) to contemporary riffs on the classics (who knew adding Mexican spices to a German chocolate cake would taste so good?).
All of Lisa’s recipes are made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, yet still packed with real Texas flavor that will make your grandmother smile. Whether you’re looking for a party-friendly snack like Pigs in Jalapeño Blankets, a Mustard Coleslaw to bring as a side to your next potluck, a weeknight- and family-friendly meal like Steak Fingers with Cream Gravy, or a mouthwatering dessert like Ruby Red Grapefruit and Pecan Sheet Cake, The Homesick Texan’s Family Table has you covered. After all, with some mighty fine food and mighty fine people to enjoy it, any meal can be cause for celebration.http://www.randomhouse.com/book/224619/the-homesick-texans-family-table-by-lisa-fain
