Texas Cooking Online


Review by Debbie Mazo

In the Lone Star State, Tex-Mex is much more than food, it's an attitude. If you want the lowdown on cooking Texas style, stop by Texas Cooking Online and fill up on the flavor of cowboy cuisine.

Each month, this upbeat online magazine serves up all kinds of offerings from listings of upcoming food and wine festivals around the state to featured articles. Selected articles for the month included How to Love Your Cast-Iron Skillet, recommending cast-iron for everything from Cornbread to Pineapple Upsidedown Cake and How to Make Corn Tortillas, describing how to roll your own tortillas.

If you're hungry for more about traditional southwestern favorites, check out the Chili and Barbecue articles in Traditional Texas Fare. Ready to rustle up some fixins? Then, dust off Grandma's Cookbook and see what you can find. Search this healthy archive of over 300 recipes either by category or by keyword.

If you're brave, try some of the scorching Tex-Mex classics like Black Beans Habanero found at https://www.texascooking.com/recipes/bbeanhab.htm or fire up your pit with some Barbecued Pork Ribs.

To round out your visit to Texas online, surf the Interactive Conferences where you can talk Tex-Mex with other Texas cooking fans. This section includes the Recipe Connection where you can share your favorites as well as a cook's discussion area. Or, browse through the shelves of the Lone Star Bookstore where you'll find reviews of cookbooks that flaunt the state's unique variety and blend of cultures.

Once you get a taste of Texas, y'all want to come back real soon!
