Enhanced by beautiful photographs of courthouses across the state of Texas, the spiral-bound Texas Judicial Cookbook contains 59 recipes from residing and former judges and other state and county officials. As long as you can open cans, you can reproduce these interesting recipes.

Texas has more than 230 historic courthouses. According to the National Trust, 'The historic seats of county government in Texas represent some of the finest works of public architecture in the Lone Star State and the nation.' The Texas Judicial Cookbook 'is a culinary tribute to these monuments of justice and leadership fashioned by the hands of pioneering Texans.'

These recipes come from many of the counties represented by the courthouses photographed. For instance, Uvalde County presents Katie's Cranberry Chicken submitted by William R. Mitchell, a Uvalde County judge. The recipes reflect the busy lives these bastions of the law live, being easy and most of the time quick to assemble and cook. From Fayette County, we have Cream Cheese and Poppy Seed Kolache Rolls. Erath County suggests Fruit Filled Tortillas. And Gonzales County has Mountain Oysters on their menu.

Easy on the budget, fast to the table, these recipes will not only sustain life but will also tickle the palette.
