I love to cook. However, at the same time, I'm very picky about the recipes that I'll use when I'm cooking. I love comfort food as much as the next person, but when I make it I want to be sure that it's something that my family is going to love. One way to be sure of that is to make sure that someone else's family loves it as well. 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table' by Lisa Fain does just that. The recipes in this cookbook do just that. They pull you in and make you say to yourself, 'This is something that my family will adore'. I haven't actually gotten to try any of the recipes yet (I'm making Jalapeño Pesto-Stuffed Pork Roast tomorrow night, pg. 155), but I've got almost every page of the book marked.Was this review helpful?

Lisa Fain does a wonderful job of taking you into her family as she's telling you about the recipes. Each chapter starts out with wonderful stories about her own family and her recipes. She makes you feel like you are part of her family and for someone like me that's the best part of a cookbook. No one wants to make something that you don't feel like your family will eat. Ms. Fain takes you into her world, it feels like you are in her kitchen with her helping her make each recipe.
This cookbook is topnotch and should be on the bookshelf of anyone that loves to cook, especially someone who loves to cook comfort food that they know their whole family will enjoy. After the pork roast the next recipe I'm going to try is Stacked Jalapeño-Cheese Enchiladas (pg. 194). What are you excited to try?
I received this book for free from the publisher’s Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.

Great Texas Recipes!
Being a transplant from Houston Texas to Massachusetts, I was very happy to hear about this cookbook. It is Texas just like I remembered! I can't wait to make the Chicken Spaghetti and Butterscotch Brownies. Yum!! Beautiful pictures makes me want to go back to Houston and visit my family. I would highly recommend this cookbook - even to those non-Texans!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
