Anyone who loves the indigenous cuisine of Texas — yes, brisket and Tex-Mex, but also biscuits and gravy, fried catfish and Dr. Pepper peanut brittle — needs to bookmark Lisa Fain's blog, The Homesick Texan.

When Fain, a former Houstonian, moved to New York, she dealt with the culinary culture shock by learning to make her favorite dishes on her own — and without the aid of Ro-Tel. Now she's published The Homesick Texan Cookbook, with more than 300 mouth-watering recipes delivered with a heavy helping of Lone Star nostalgia.

After getting a rave from The New York Times (which took pains to describe Frito pie and marveled that it's served at Texas high school football games) Fain talked to CultureMap's Sarah Rufca about making time to cook, what Texas food means to her and which hometown restaurants she craves:

CultureMap: Were you surprised at how popular your blog has become?

Lisa Fain: Absolutely. I started the blog officially in 2005, in '06 is when it really became a recipe food blog. I didn't have a business plan or anything, I was just cooking and taking photos I wanted to share with friends and family, a personal diary kind of thing, and people started finding it and leaving comments.

What really surprised me, in addition to transplanted Texans enjoying it, was that local Texans enjoyed it. I'm like, "You're not homesick!" But they really love the food. And there are [readers] who have never even been to Texas, so for them, they are not familiar with Texas food, but I think they understand the stories about family and connecting with home.

CM: What do you think makes people so excited about Texas food?

LF: Well, it's delicious. The thing about Texas food is it's very diverse, with interesting flavors. With Tex-Mex happening, it's a rare person that doesnt get excited about jalepe
