The Homesick Texan has been one of my favorite food blogs for years. I started using it when I was still in Texas, but now that I've left, it's an absolutely wonderful resource for cooking like I'm back in the Homeland. Fain is a native Texan, so she knows how the food is supposed to taste and doesn't shy from wonderful TexMex or Mexican food or cut corners to make it easier or more-appealing to those who aren't used to the food.

Some of the recipes are from the blog, some are new, but so far I haven't had a problem with any of them. They are easy to follow and there are pictures (an absolute must).

If she writes anymore cookbooks, I will get them all. ( )

I was born and raised in Texas (Dallas) and these dishes are spot on. It's a big state, so there's variety, but The Homesick Texan covers most of it, possibly not enough coverage of the southeast portion-- like adaptations of deep south/Louisiana cooking. I enjoy the commentary on the recipes and have tried 5 recipes so far. They all worked well and ranged from pretty good to delicious. Some of the ingredients are not findable here in Northern California, and I imagine even fewer would be available farther north and east. The pictures are lovely. The best part is that the dishes presented are both downhome and upscale-- they are authentic, not just standard fancy dishes with chipotle added randomly, but they do not call for Velveeta in the queso, there's a nice mix of vegetable dishes along with the meats. I recommend this book to most people who can cook, like spicy food, and can get chiles. You don't have to be Texan to enjoy it. ( )
