Kitchen Road Trip: Texas

Kitchen Road Trip: A Texas gift guide // Feast + West

Everything is bigger in Texas, they say. If that’s true, then that’s where I got my appetite for Tex-Mex food. Having lived the first two years in the Lone Star State, I have always felt a strong tie to Texas. Though I was born here in Charlotte, my family moved to Dallas just three months after I was born. We moved back to North Carolina when I was two — so I remember exactly none of my life in Texas — but I firmly believe it rubbed off on me. For my fellow ‘Friday Night Lights’ fans out there: Texas forever.

I was lucky to visit Austin when I was in college. Gosh, what a cool city! I was there for a conference, but I seriously enjoyed all the live music and tacos everywhere I looked. I’m dying to go back and spend some more time there. Anyway, here’s a Texas gift guide celebrating some of the big and awesome things to come out of my former home state! Happy Monday, y’all. // susannah
