Spread Love & Happiness with Cooking! — 2 Holiday Gift Cookbooks
My holiday gift suggestion is one or both of these award-winning cookbooks, now holiday discounted at bookstores and online retailers.
For experienced cooks and also beginners, these step-by step recipes guarantee the best flavors and eye-popping presentations for every occasion, all year long.
The recipes, both traditional & innovative, represent the best of Texas Mexican cuisine — the Comida Casera, home-style cooking, of Texas Mexican American families. Both cookbooks tell the moving stories connected to our food, to our history in Texas and northeastern Mexico. Ingredients feature ancient ingredients that reveal heritage and rootedness on this land.
