Buttermilk Bacon-Fat Flour Tortillas From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 5 comments

For some reason, homemade flour tortillas have always intimidated me. I've made corn tortillas many times, so I'm not sure where the reluctance came from. But once I saw Lisa Fain's recipe for buttermilk and bacon-fat filled flour tortillas in her new cookbook, The Homesick Texan's Family Table, I could resist no longer. More

Frito Salad From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 4 comments

While I'd never eaten a Frito salad before this week, I am very familiar with bean-heavy taco salads. These I'd eat as a teenager, convinced that they were healthier than tacos themselves, even when decorated with several handfuls of tortilla chips. Lisa Fain's Frito salad in her new cookbook, The Homesick Texan's Family Table, is much better than those salads I ate as a kid. More

Cowboy beans, for the uninitiated, are Texan baked beans, spiked with coffee and often some kind of beef. Lisa Fain's recipe in her new cookbook, The Homesick Texan's Family Table, offer a bit of a twist on the usual dish—instead of using fresh beef in the beans, she stirs in diced beef jerky. More

Shredded Beef Enchiladas With Three-Chile Sauce From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 3 comments

I didn't grow up in Texas, but I did eat my fair share of Tex-Mex as a kid. Saucy burritos, sizzling fajitas, and giant bowls of cheese dip all hold fond places in my heart, even as I have grown to love a two-bite chorizo taco much. One of my favorite dishes to order at these restaurants was the enchilada platter, drenched in red sauce and smothered in melty Mexican blend cheese. More

Texan food can mean many different things. The eastern part of the state shares dishes and techniques from Creole country and the Deep South. Border town cuisine takes much of their influence from Mexico. But the first thing I think of when I think of Texan food is beef. And gigantic meat smokers. And more beef. More
