    Dec 03, 2014

    I've followed Lisa Fain's blog "The Homesick Texan" for some time now. I really like her food. She is down to earth and her food is frigging fabulous. You can find her here: http://www.homesicktexan.com/ When I got this book in the mail I was super excited. I loved her first cookbook...

    A beautiful and glossy cookbook with gorgeous pictures and stories. I've only made the pie crust and pecan pie so far (both delicious and will definitely be made again) but there's plenty in these pages that I can't wait to get making (looking at you jalapeno pesto-stuffed pork roast.....

    At my house we simply refer to this as "the good cook book" Like, "hey hun go get the good cook book, would ya?" ...

    I must secretly be from Texas because everything in this cookbook looks delicious! I borrowed it from the library, and now I'm definitely going to buy my own copy. GET IN MAH BELLY! ...

    yummy. I am going to get so much more fat on my ass over this book. ...

    Four and a half stars, rounded up. --- The Homesick Texan's Family Table: Lone Star Cooking from My Kitchen to Yours is a collection of home style recipes of the dishes that make Texan food so damn delicious. Featuring sweet, spicy, and savory recipes, there's bound to be somethi...

    It's pretty much impossible to define Texas good since it represents a myriad of southern, Mexican, German, and other favors. Rob Walsh is a good go-to Texas cookbook author and I'm also recently impressed with "United Tastes of Texas" by Jessica Dupuy. I'm on the fence, however, with ...

    I?m a homesick Texan. I was born and raised in Texas and, although I?ve lived elsewhere for more years than I lived there, Texas is always going to be home. Understandably, when I saw the title of the cookbook The Homesick Texan?s Family Table, I HAD to find out if it was really ...

    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...

    I love a cookbook with good stories, and this is one. It contains Texas food from around the state with anecdotes on what makes a recipe or dish uniquely Texas or special for the writer. ...

    Lisa Fain shares a bit happiness with every recipe, photo, & description in The Homesick Texan's Family Table There are certain places that to me are heart homes - Paris, North Wales, the Deep South, and Texas. When I first arrived in Paris, as a rather naive graduate student...

    Since I'm married to a Texan, though not necessarily a homesick one, the title of this cookbook caught my eye. Have you noticed that cookbooks are not "recipe books," as they used to be? They have become "table books," fit to be leisurely enjoyed. The cookbook may include lots of recip...

    Can't wait to try some recipes from this book! The family stories Fain weaves throughout the book made me think of my own family and the recipes we have shared throughout the years. A wonderful cookbook for anyone who loves good food. ...

    Five stars.. Great pictures, stories and of course recipes. The lemon pie and sweet potato pie were my favorite desserts and they came out perfectly. Cowboy beans on a cool night were worth the time. As a New Yorker who has never stepped foot in Texas, I recommend. ...

    Another mouthwatering assortment! Would still love more photos of the author's family or Texas roots - but the scrumptious food pics also to the trick. ...

    There are some very good recipes in this cookbook. I like the photos, and the backstories, that the author includes with each recipe. ...

    I love reading books where I feel an instant rapport with the author. Such was the case with Lisa Fain, accomplished food blogger and author of The Homesick Texan Family Table cookbook. According to Fain, if you ask a Texan about their most memorable meal, it will not be one consumed a...

    Lisa Fain?s The Homesick Texan is a blog I have enjoyed for quite some time. When I was given the opportunity to review her second book, The Homesick Texan?s Family Table, I jumped on it. Love, love, love this cookbook! It has beautiful photos of the dishes and what?s not to l...

    **I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I'm a sucker for a good cookbook and this one definitely fits the bill. I haven't made anything from the book yet so I can't comment on the actual quality and execution of the recipes, but they seem great and very a...

    I've followed Lisa Fain's blog "The Homesick Texan" for some time now. I really like her food. She is down to earth and her food is frigging fabulous. You can find her here: http://www.homesicktexan.com/ When I got this book in the mail I was super excited. I loved her first cookbook...

    A beautiful and glossy cookbook with gorgeous pictures and stories. I've only made the pie crust and pecan pie so far (both delicious and will definitely be made again) but there's plenty in these pages that I can't wait to get making (looking at you jalapeno pesto-stuffed pork roast.....

    At my house we simply refer to this as "the good cook book" Like, "hey hun go get the good cook book, would ya?" ...

    I must secretly be from Texas because everything in this cookbook looks delicious! I borrowed it from the library, and now I'm definitely going to buy my own copy. GET IN MAH BELLY! ...

    yummy. I am going to get so much more fat on my ass over this book. ...

    Four and a half stars, rounded up. --- The Homesick Texan's Family Table: Lone Star Cooking from My Kitchen to Yours is a collection of home style recipes of the dishes that make Texan food so damn delicious. Featuring sweet, spicy, and savory recipes, there's bound to be somethi...

    It's pretty much impossible to define Texas good since it represents a myriad of southern, Mexican, German, and other favors. Rob Walsh is a good go-to Texas cookbook author and I'm also recently impressed with "United Tastes of Texas" by Jessica Dupuy. I'm on the fence, however, with ...

    I?m a homesick Texan. I was born and raised in Texas and, although I?ve lived elsewhere for more years than I lived there, Texas is always going to be home. Understandably, when I saw the title of the cookbook The Homesick Texan?s Family Table, I HAD to find out if it was really ...

    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...

    I love a cookbook with good stories, and this is one. It contains Texas food from around the state with anecdotes on what makes a recipe or dish uniquely Texas or special for the writer. ...

    Since I'm married to a Texan, though not necessarily a homesick one, the title of this cookbook caught my eye. Have you noticed that cookbooks are not "recipe books," as they used to be? They have become "table books," fit to be leisurely enjoyed. The cookbook may include lots of recip...

    Can't wait to try some recipes from this book! The family stories Fain weaves throughout the book made me think of my own family and the recipes we have shared throughout the years. A wonderful cookbook for anyone who loves good food. ...

    Five stars.. Great pictures, stories and of course recipes. The lemon pie and sweet potato pie were my favorite desserts and they came out perfectly. Cowboy beans on a cool night were worth the time. As a New Yorker who has never stepped foot in Texas, I recommend. ...

    Another mouthwatering assortment! Would still love more photos of the author's family or Texas roots - but the scrumptious food pics also to the trick. ...

    There are some very good recipes in this cookbook. I like the photos, and the backstories, that the author includes with each recipe. ...

    I love reading books where I feel an instant rapport with the author. Such was the case with Lisa Fain, accomplished food blogger and author of The Homesick Texan Family Table cookbook. According to Fain, if you ask a Texan about their most memorable meal, it will not be one consumed a...

    I've followed Lisa Fain's blog "The Homesick Texan" for some time now. I really like her food. She is down to earth and her food is frigging fabulous. You can find her here: http://www.homesicktexan.com/ When I got this book in the mail I was super excited. I loved her first cookbook...

    A beautiful and glossy cookbook with gorgeous pictures and stories. I've only made the pie crust and pecan pie so far (both delicious and will definitely be made again) but there's plenty in these pages that I can't wait to get making (looking at you jalapeno pesto-stuffed pork roast.....

    At my house we simply refer to this as "the good cook book" Like, "hey hun go get the good cook book, would ya?" ...

    I must secretly be from Texas because everything in this cookbook looks delicious! I borrowed it from the library, and now I'm definitely going to buy my own copy. GET IN MAH BELLY! ...

    yummy. I am going to get so much more fat on my ass over this book. ...

    Four and a half stars, rounded up. --- The Homesick Texan's Family Table: Lone Star Cooking from My Kitchen to Yours is a collection of home style recipes of the dishes that make Texan food so damn delicious. Featuring sweet, spicy, and savory recipes, there's bound to be somethi...

    It's pretty much impossible to define Texas good since it represents a myriad of southern, Mexican, German, and other favors. Rob Walsh is a good go-to Texas cookbook author and I'm also recently impressed with "United Tastes of Texas" by Jessica Dupuy. I'm on the fence, however, with ...

    I?m a homesick Texan. I was born and raised in Texas and, although I?ve lived elsewhere for more years than I lived there, Texas is always going to be home. Understandably, when I saw the title of the cookbook The Homesick Texan?s Family Table, I HAD to find out if it was really ...

    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...

    I love a cookbook with good stories, and this is one. It contains Texas food from around the state with anecdotes on what makes a recipe or dish uniquely Texas or special for the writer. ...

    Lisa Fain shares a bit happiness with every recipe, photo, & description in The Homesick Texan's Family Table There are certain places that to me are heart homes - Paris, North Wales, the Deep South, and Texas. When I first arrived in Paris, as a rather naive graduate student...

    Since I'm married to a Texan, though not necessarily a homesick one, the title of this cookbook caught my eye. Have you noticed that cookbooks are not "recipe books," as they used to be? They have become "table books," fit to be leisurely enjoyed. The cookbook may include lots of recip...

    Can't wait to try some recipes from this book! The family stories Fain weaves throughout the book made me think of my own family and the recipes we have shared throughout the years. A wonderful cookbook for anyone who loves good food. ...

    Five stars.. Great pictures, stories and of course recipes. The lemon pie and sweet potato pie were my favorite desserts and they came out perfectly. Cowboy beans on a cool night were worth the time. As a New Yorker who has never stepped foot in Texas, I recommend. ...

    Another mouthwatering assortment! Would still love more photos of the author's family or Texas roots - but the scrumptious food pics also to the trick. ...

    There are some very good recipes in this cookbook. I like the photos, and the backstories, that the author includes with each recipe. ...

    I love reading books where I feel an instant rapport with the author. Such was the case with Lisa Fain, accomplished food blogger and author of The Homesick Texan Family Table cookbook. According to Fain, if you ask a Texan about their most memorable meal, it will not be one consumed a...

    About the Book: From beloved food blogger Lisa Fain, aka the Homesick Texan, comes this follow-up to her wildly popular debut cookbook, featuring more than 125 recipes for wonderfully comforting, ingredient-driven Lone Star classics that the whole family will love. There are few ...

    As a writer, the senses are the fastest ways to help evoke an emotional response in a reader. It is easy to recognize certain smells, and hopefully if they are the good ones, we have a positive reaction to them. For example, chocolate chip cookies or the cologne or perfume your signifi...

    NOTE: I read the e-version of this book and have not yet tested any of the recipes. my review covers the reading experience. for comparison, i am an experienced home cook with a modestly robust cookbook collection. 4 stars for a collection of tasty-looking texan favorites tweaked to...

    I was not familiar with Lisa Fain before receiving this cookbook, but I am now a fan! The recipes in this cookbook aren't lofty or overly ambitious, but are instead completely manageable and appealing. I received the Kindle version of this cookbook and it was easy to navigate and the p...

    Popular food writer and blogger Lisa Fain is known as "The Homesick Texan"--a seventh-generation Texan who now lives in New York City. Her self-titled blog and debut cookbook have been a great success, and she further delights and entertains readers and cooks with "The Homesick Texan's...

    I?ve been a fan of Lisa?s blog, The Homesick Texan, for several years, and her first cookbook became a fast favorite in my kitchen. When I was given a free copy from the publisher through Blogging for Books, I jumped at the chance to own a copy of her second cookbook!Just as good a...

    I've followed Lisa Fain's blog "The Homesick Texan" for some time now. I really like her food. She is down to earth and her food is frigging fabulous. You can find her here: http://www.homesicktexan.com/ When I got this book in the mail I was super excited. I loved her first cookbook...

    A beautiful and glossy cookbook with gorgeous pictures and stories. I've only made the pie crust and pecan pie so far (both delicious and will definitely be made again) but there's plenty in these pages that I can't wait to get making (looking at you jalapeno pesto-stuffed pork roast.....

    At my house we simply refer to this as "the good cook book" Like, "hey hun go get the good cook book, would ya?" ...

    I must secretly be from Texas because everything in this cookbook looks delicious! I borrowed it from the library, and now I'm definitely going to buy my own copy. GET IN MAH BELLY! ...

    yummy. I am going to get so much more fat on my ass over this book. ...

    Four and a half stars, rounded up. --- The Homesick Texan's Family Table: Lone Star Cooking from My Kitchen to Yours is a collection of home style recipes of the dishes that make Texan food so damn delicious. Featuring sweet, spicy, and savory recipes, there's bound to be somethi...

    It's pretty much impossible to define Texas good since it represents a myriad of southern, Mexican, German, and other favors. Rob Walsh is a good go-to Texas cookbook author and I'm also recently impressed with "United Tastes of Texas" by Jessica Dupuy. I'm on the fence, however, with ...

    I?m a homesick Texan. I was born and raised in Texas and, although I?ve lived elsewhere for more years than I lived there, Texas is always going to be home. Understandably, when I saw the title of the cookbook The Homesick Texan?s Family Table, I HAD to find out if it was really ...

    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...

    I love a cookbook with good stories, and this is one. It contains Texas food from around the state with anecdotes on what makes a recipe or dish uniquely Texas or special for the writer. ...

    Lisa Fain shares a bit happiness with every recipe, photo, & description in The Homesick Texan's Family Table There are certain places that to me are heart homes - Paris, North Wales, the Deep South, and Texas. When I first arrived in Paris, as a rather naive graduate student...

    Since I'm married to a Texan, though not necessarily a homesick one, the title of this cookbook caught my eye. Have you noticed that cookbooks are not "recipe books," as they used to be? They have become "table books," fit to be leisurely enjoyed. The cookbook may include lots of recip...

    Can't wait to try some recipes from this book! The family stories Fain weaves throughout the book made me think of my own family and the recipes we have shared throughout the years. A wonderful cookbook for anyone who loves good food. ...

    Five stars.. Great pictures, stories and of course recipes. The lemon pie and sweet potato pie were my favorite desserts and they came out perfectly. Cowboy beans on a cool night were worth the time. As a New Yorker who has never stepped foot in Texas, I recommend. ...

    Another mouthwatering assortment! Would still love more photos of the author's family or Texas roots - but the scrumptious food pics also to the trick. ...

    There are some very good recipes in this cookbook. I like the photos, and the backstories, that the author includes with each recipe. ...

    I love reading books where I feel an instant rapport with the author. Such was the case with Lisa Fain, accomplished food blogger and author of The Homesick Texan Family Table cookbook. According to Fain, if you ask a Texan about their most memorable meal, it will not be one consumed a...

    About the Book: From beloved food blogger Lisa Fain, aka the Homesick Texan, comes this follow-up to her wildly popular debut cookbook, featuring more than 125 recipes for wonderfully comforting, ingredient-driven Lone Star classics that the whole family will love. There are few ...

    As a writer, the senses are the fastest ways to help evoke an emotional response in a reader. It is easy to recognize certain smells, and hopefully if they are the good ones, we have a positive reaction to them. For example, chocolate chip cookies or the cologne or perfume your signifi...

    **I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I'm a sucker for a good cookbook and this one definitely fits the bill. I haven't made anything from the book yet so I can't comment on the actual quality and execution of the recipes, but they seem great and very a...

    I was sent a copy of the book for review through Net Galley, as always, all opinions are my own. While I loved reading the stories Lisa Fain has chosen to intersperse throughout this book I didn?t enjoy the recipes as much as I thought I would. They remind me very much of the type...
