Sylvia's site is unique in that it covers all sorts of great Texas fare, including old family dishes served in their restaurant, as well as a section devoted to drinks and one to canning (or "putting up," as we call it in Texas). But she also includes a sections devoted to Dallas area restaurants, crafts, and fantastic retro and Texana shopping finds.
You'll love Sylvia's gorgeous photos of food, but you'll also love that you get little glimpses of her mid-century furnishings If you enjoy collecting handwritten recipes rather than just bookmarking them on your computer, you'll love her free downloadable blank "Hungry Recipe Cards." She also offers printable recipes.
This is one of the warmest, most personal sites I've found. You'll feel like you know Sylvia after you've visited, so really you're getting THREE for the price of one: great food, great mid-century and a new friend.

As an added bonus, Sylvia is the wife of Hank Tosh of Toshmahal, the master mid-century furniture refinisher and restorer I posted about recently, whom Sylvia likes to call Mr. Hungry Texan. Talk about a dynamic duo! Is there anything these two can't do?
