    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

    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.
