the buzz




Houston, Texas

Named after General Sam Houston, Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas. Other factoids also put the city at the top of the heap: it’s the 4th largest city in the US; the theater district has the second largest number of theater seats in a downtown area; it’s home to the largest medical center in the world—and the city’s temperature really gets up there too. Houstonians take refuge in the 11,000 air-conditioned restaurants, eating out more than any other city’s residents—and for good reason. Houston’s Tex-Mex is about as good as it gets, and there’s a reason people can’t stop talking about Texas BBQ.

About me:
I have traveled throughout the United States and picked up regional recipes from everywhere, the older the better!! I have converted some very old recipes calling for proper temperature in a woodstove! Give me one person or fifty and I will cook! Seeing people enjoy a good homecooked meal is my biggest pleasure.
