The Homesick Texan's Family Table {cookbook review}

Holy jalapeno!
This cookbook, The Homesick Texan's FamilyTable by Lisa Fain is my new comfort food bible!
I was so excited about this particular cookbook because almost all of her dishes are made in her trusty iron skillet.
My grandfather had given me some iron skillets earlier this year before he passed away and I have learned the basics and wasn't sure if I could really cook everything in one. Lisa has shown me the iron skillet way of cooking and it is amazing!
All of the photographs show the food in all of it's glory and I am slowly ticking my way through the recipes.
The Dilly Green Beans are almost exactly like my recipe, so I felt confident that I was doing something right if this Texan makes her's the same way.
The Steak Fingers with the Jalapeno Gravy...YUM! A new favorite at my house!
Each recipe's story reminds me a lot of my family's favorite recipes and how they were handed through the generations. 
I love that she cooks with a lot of spice (true Texan there), and that she explains each recipe very well.
I haven't been left wondering what to do or how to do something. Each step has been broken down nicely.
The cookbook is beautiful.
The food is delicious (even all those sweet treats....ummm peach ice cream? Yes please!)
There isn't enough good things to say about this.
If you have a big meat eater in your house (I do) and enjoy comfort food (I do) then this belongs on your shelf!

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Blogging for Books.
