Cool, those of you still with me get to check out Cookbook #24: More Tastes & Tales from Texas With Love (Peg Hein, 1987). With LOVE, you guys! Can't be bad. This is Anna's favorite so far because it has an ampersand, and she is obsessed with ampersands (pretty normal fixation). Provenance: Mom. Previous recipes on this blog: none. Decade: 80s. Instances of margarine in recipes: many.
I was worried that Texas Week would result in three cow-based meals in a row, especially because I was trying to avoid Tex-Mex for history-based theme and I'm almost positive not racist reasons. So for this first book I decided to make a meal of sides. (Spoiler alert: there is not a single upcoming cow-based meal.) Recipes: Grapefruit-Avocado Salad, Tomatoes Rockafeller, Scholz Garden Beans. Or as I like to call them: Yum, Also Yum, and Whoa That's A Lot of Onion.

Hey, Vino Rosso Linguine is perfect for those times when you want something that tastes good and also looks like brains.

At least I know that Cookbook #25, The Cake Mix Doctor (Anne Byrn, 1999) won't be at all controversial to the good people of the internet because it was a gift from my mom and I used it to make Mom's Layer Cake with Fluffy Chocolate Frosting FOR MY MOM. It may as well have a kitten doing something humorous on top of it!
