The Homesick Texan's Family Table
I'm fairly honest about my extreme love of Texas cuisine - to the point where I travel there every year or so for a week of food touring and BBQ pit hopping. It's a gluttonous, sunny, and incredibly fun adventure I would recommend to just about anyone. As such, I can say with some experience that Lisa Fain's recipes are the real deal, and often are improvements on the real deal. This cookbook is a winner.
