Treat yourself to a genuine taste of Texas with this collection of authentic and savory dishes as broad as the Texas sky and as hearty as a cowboy's laugh. James Stroman traveled the Lone Star State and collected the special recipes that have become traditional mealtime favorites with Texas families. These best-loved dishes include spicy Creole cuisine, splendid Tex-Mex offerings, classic Texas fare, and delectable Gulf Coast seafood. And for the carb-counters out there, a special icon has been added to draw attention to the low and no-carb recipes. From hors d'oeuvres to dessert, the recipes in Down Home Texas Cooking are as rich and varied as Texas itself.
