The Homesick Texan Cookbook When Lisa Fain, a seventh-generation Texan, moved to New York City, she missed the big sky, the bluebonnets in spring, Friday night football, and her family’s farm. But most of all, she missed the foods she’d grown up with. After a fruitless search for tastes of Texas in New York City, Fain took matters into her own hands. She headed into the kitchen to cook for her friends the Tex-Mex, the chili, and the country comfort dishes that reminded her of home.

The Homesick Texan Cookbook by Lisa Fain.

The Perfect Baked Potato. Slice potato almost but not all the way through. Tuck butter between slices. Bake until tender. Dribble with sour cream. Shower with grated cheese. Bake again until melted and gooey. Lavish with more sour cream and chopped scallion or crumbled bacon or chili or whatever you please.

This is what true Texans do. When the tornado siren goes off, we walk outside, study the sky a while, talk to the neighbors, and then if the clouds are really low or really green or really twisting like beaters in cake batter, we head for the storm closet. Otherwise, it's just the weatherman making a mountain out of a molehill.
