Editorial Reviews

Glenn Dromgoole
Veteran cooks Dolores Runyon and Dona Mularkey have combined their recipes and some of their friends favorites into a little 84-page book chock full of delicious ideas for that summer family reunion or fall church potluck supper. You might not want to take Wino Pot Roast to the church supper, but it could liven up a family get-together. Other meat recipes include Texas Goulash, 15-Minute Chili, Chicken n Easy Dumplings, and Scott s Venison and Pork Meatloaf. Old-Fashioned Tea Cakes lead off the dessert section, which also features such delectable goodies as Whipping Cream Pound Cake, Texas Pecan Pie and Cow Patty Cookies. Other sections in Texas Church Supper and Family Reunion Cookbook offer recipes for appetizers, drinks, breads, salads and veggies. The Great Texas Line publishes useful and entertaining small books, 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches, reasonably priced ... The books make good remembrance or stocking stuffer gifts.

Dona Mularkey of McKinney and Dolores Runyon of Dallas mined time-tested recipes, augmenting them with their beloved recipes begged from family and friends. Resulting is a compilation of favorites for your own family gatherings, church fellowship suppers, picnics and office parties. The 100-plus dishes travel well, and the pair has designated ones that can be made in 30 minutes or less, as well as some that can be produced in a slow cooker. Both avid foodies, Malarkey teaches at Southern Methodist University and Runyon is a Dallas writer. The forward is by Amy Culbertson, who was formerly food editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Meet the Author

Both Dona Mularkey and Dolores Runyon absorbed cooking from their mothers and began cooking for their families in their early teens. Both now consider cooking with their children and grandchildren one of their greatest joys. Born in the tiny town of Randolph, northeast of Dallas, where the Baptist church was the social activity, Dolores fondly recalls big annual family reunions at Greenville State Park especially her Aunt Blonda s fresh ham. Retired from Texas Instruments and living in Dallas, she s proud to call herself a plain Texas country cook. Dona, from a military family, has lived all over the U.S. and in Japan, the Ukraine and several European countries, as well as circling the world on aircraft carriers while teaching mechanical engineering, her specialty at SMU. But she s stayed the longest 30 years in Texas, and she now lives in McKinney.
