The Homesick Texan presents Family Table

book123 This is a follow-up cookbook to Lisa Fain’s first Homesick Texan cookbook. Some new recipes, lots of cool photos and plenty of dishes if you are a fan of spicy foods.

This book wouldn’t even be on the radar for a vegetarian but there are quite a few veggie side dishes. There are over 20 recipes for salads and sides, complete with some great photos to tempt you as you browse the book.

Divided by types of foods such as starters and brunch, salad, side dishes, chicken, meats, desserts and a cool ending chapter called Accompaniments. There you’ll find salsas, pickles, dressings and hot sauce. The stuff you need to complete the meals.

I would like to try the chicken spaghetti, Corn-Black Bean Salsa and Pollo Asado soon. I adapted Crazy Nachos for our Friday evening chill-out meal. You can’t get much better than nachos and watching The Walking Dead, right?!

Love, love, love nachos!!!

Lots of recipes to explore here and I am sure I would need to adapt some as foods that are too spicy give me grief 🙂 Overall, excellent cookbook with a great layout.

  1. I’ve found that I can’t snack while watching American Horror Story. A good tip for dieters! I haven’t been cooking much at all this summer, so am hoping to get back to it. This cookbook sounds good!
