Texas Cookoff by Carol Blakely, Diane Heusinkveld

With historic Texas postcards and drawings by Diane Heusinkveld.

The latest addition to our popular stocking stuffer format cookbook.

This collection of the all-time best Texas recipes was compiled by Carol Blakely, one of the leading authorities on Southwestern cooking. The classic recipes include such favorites as Pico de Gallo, Easy Skillet Fajitas, Prairie Fire, and Cheese Wafers from Lady Bird Johnson. Armadillo Eggs, Perfact Guacamole, Poo Poos, and Pioneer Jailhouse Chili are just a few of the other great recipes in this volume.

TEXAS COOKOFF contains a selection of recipes from the book STEWING IN TEXAS, the exciting tale of a landmark copyright case in 2001-2002. Carol Blakely contributed famous Texas recipes to this earlier Penfield book that tells the hilarious story of a lawsuit involving eighteen recipes and huge legal costs. The research and resourcefulness of Carol helped conclude the case, proving once again that Carol Blakely is one of the US topmost experts on Texas and Southwestern cuisine.

These popular recipes pack a mighty punch with many popular entries for everything Texan, from Sugar-fried Chicken to Stage Coach Inn Hush Puppies. Capturing the spirit of an authentic Texas cookoff, this volume will help you create some of the best American cooking ever. Be sure to look for Easy Frozen Margaritas from Carol!.

With a handy guide to many fun cookoff events held throughout Texas each year, TEXAS COOKOFF will bring the delicious taste of Texas right into your kitchen.
