I've been married 26 years to my DH. We've lived all over the US and in Scotland. We've finally made our way back to our native Texas about 6 years ago. I've been collecting recipes for most of those years so I'm really glad to have this site to store some of my favorites. I grew up cooking classic Texas and Tex Mex foods.One of my favorite cookbooks is "Texas Home Cooking". It is full of what I consider to be the very best versions of all the classic Texan and Tex-Mex recipes. I'm trying to learn more healthy food prep and recipes these days, so I frequently try to lighten up my standard, go-to recipes.
