Yee-haw! My grandma in Houston gave me this cookbook a while ago and I sure do like it. Full of history and colorful stories about the lives (and recipes!) of mid-twentieth century Texas celebrities and politicians. See below for some of what's inside!
Lady Bird's famous chili.
I bet this is darn tasty. Thanks, Liz!
What isn't better with some bacon drippings?
Sam and Henry keep it simple.
Hondo's keeping it REALLY simple. 🤣
Have you ever heard of the chili queens? A great bit of Texas culinary history.
Something everyone could agree on.
Did you know Ike was a cooking enthusiast? He even traded recipes with Queen Elizabeth!
It's sort of stunning we have Sam's fave white cake and chocolate frosting recipe. I wonder what the original read like before it was modernized?
I'm so glad we had these recipes, together . . . 🎶
And of course there's a big bowl of chili on the back cover. That's all folks!
