Cookbook author Lisa Fain is a seventh-generation Texan — now living in New York City. We talked to her about … and she shared recipes from her book The Homesick Texan’s Family Table: Lone Star Cooking from My Family to Yours.
How can you go wrong serving homemade sausage for breakfast? Borrowing on this tradition, and understanding that most of us aren’t out back raising hogs, Lisa created this recipe, working until she knew her grandpa would be proud.
Lisa’s version of Jambalaya is regularly made in Southeast Texas when a bunch of friends are coming over. For me it’s the perfect dish for New England Spring weather — balmy breezes, sleet, pouring rain, howling winds, and a blizzard.
