This book is a winner!!! It's a trip down memory lane, containing some of the recipes we remember from our childhood, with delicious recepies for a variety of yummy deserts. Gorgeous photography, fun tips and VERY Texas all the way. We got a copy, then bought a dozen more that we gave as Christmas presents, much to the delight of all who received them!

This is one of the most delightful books I've seen on Southern (ahem, Texas) food! The photography is stunning, the cooking tips are fantastic, and the desserts are ones that will likely become regulars in your line-up of favorites. Makes a stunning and fun hostess gift.

What a wonderful cookbook!  Every Texas recipe and every recipe loved by Texans can be found in this book.  It is beautifully done, the pictures are gorgeous and make you want to stop and cook something right that minute.  I received mine as a Christmas gift and was so taken with it, I have given it as a present for several birthdays and Valentine's Day.

I got this as a gift and ended up ordering 12 copies for my friends and family. They're going to get them as holiday gifts. I really like the choice of recipes and the photos are yummy to look at. Fun book!
