Format: Paperback
I had borrowed the book from my sister and found it to be just wonderful!! Being a Native Texan, I am always on the look-out for recipes that are "Texas". The recipes for Duck Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffee andFuzzy's Fantastic South Texas Road Meat Chili are among my favorite from the book. My sister is demanding her copy back, so, I am ordering my own!!

I read cookbooks for more than recipes. This book has it all. Curl up on a cool evening, or a torrid afternoon, to learn abut Texas and the great humor of Linda West. She talks about her family and friends in a way that makes you want to meet them and sit down and enjoy a hearty meal with them all. The recipes are easy to follow, and true to her description. Thoroughly enjoyable!

I keep buying and giving copies of The ONLY Texas Cookbook...starting with my daughters-in-law who want some of my favorite recipes. But you don't have to be a cook to hunker down with this powerful book of classic Texas tales you'll never forget because Linda's voice rings so true. It is an oldie but goodie! ~ Shirley (Shirleybarr PR, Houston)

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book a few years ago while visiting a friend in Houston. There are so many good recipes in here, I don't even know where to begin! Lots of basic, easy to make Texas-style and Tex-mex recipes, plus a smattering of exotic wild game dishes. But it's not just the recipes that make this book -- the author, Linda West Eckhardt -- has filled the pages with humorous stories and factoids about the Texas lifestyle.

This is my third copy in the past 20 years. I loaned the other two to friends, and they loved it so much I let them keep them as listtle presents. The recipe for Aunt Helen's Memorial Beans is worth the cost of the book, regardless of price. It is packed with recipes from the Texas hill country near San Antonio, where the German immigrant influence was strongest, hence some interesting and unique recipes, also the most authentic Tex-Mex I've ever seen. I lived in that part of the country and I can vouch for the authenticity. The author prefaces the chapters and some of the recipes with wonderful anecdotal material that is beautifully written.

There are so many tipes of true Native Texans that you can't judge a state by one family (or woman's) tales. I really believe she has a great story to tell of her life and that's worth the money I'll be spending for the book. If, after I read it, I like it enough I'll order more copies for my children and maybe even a few friends.

Real Texas Food, REALLY! I have used this cookbook since the 1980's or whenever it first came out. I have made so many tasty meals from these recipes. The copy I just bought was for an out of state friend. May she know Texas better through our delicious foods, and make them better with this wonderful cookbook!
