Presented by Blue Willow Bookshop at Blue Willow Bookshop

Blue Willow Bookshop presents Lisa Fain on Monday, June 16 at 7:00pm.  She will discuss and sign her newest cookbook The Homesick Texan's Family Table: Lone Star Cooking from My Kitchen to Yours.

From beloved food blogger Lisa Fain, aka "The Homesick Texan," comes this follow-up to her wildly popular debut cookbook, featuring more than 125 recipes for wonderfully comforting, ingredient-driven Lone Star classics that the whole family will love.

Nobody knows and loves Texan food more than Lisa Fain. With The Homesick Texan's Family Table, Fain serves up more of the appealing, accessible, and downright delicious fare that has made her blog so popular. Featuring a mix of down-home standards and contemporary updates, all of the recipes are made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, yet still packed with real Texas flavor.

With recipes including Fried Chicken, Crazy Nachos, Pumpkin Pasilla Soup, Ruby Red Grapefruit and Pecan Sheet Cake, and more, The Homesick Texan's Family Table has something for everyone–whether you're in Dallas or Detroit, Houston or Honolulu.
