THE MOSSBACK CAFÉ COOKBOOK is a delightfully narrated cookbook filled with recipes that one can almost taste! The best part? These are the same recipes in each of Mr. Fenske's books, THE FEVER and A CURSE THAT BITES DEEP If its good enough for hard-boiled characters, its good enough for readers. This is stick to your ribs eating, filled with flavor and just begging to be tried. Get ready to get some kitschy wisdom and quirky anecdotes with that side of bacon. Check the spice rack, make that grocery list and give one or all of these recipes a try, I am! I received this copy from Thomas Fenske, who apparently cooks as well as he writes!

In the I received a free electronic copy of this cookbook from TheFussyLibrarian and Thomas Fenske. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this cookbook of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Thomas Fenske is the author of a series of modern Texas mysteries centered around gold stashed and lost in the 1880s. The current rumors about the whereabouts of Ben Sublett's gold rest in the dying words of a homeless man in a central Texas jail. In these novels, the fictitious Mossback Cafe plays a prominent role, and the author occasionally shares a recipe or two. In this excellent cookbook, he shares many recipes. These are - dare I say old-timey Texas dishes like your great-grandma used to make? Special recipes, made-from-scratch with the instructions to prepare these dishes properly. I think you will really enjoy this interesting cookbook. I certainly did. Reviewed on October 30, 2019, at Goodreads, AmazonSmile, and Barnes & Noble. Not available at BookBub, Kobo or GooglePlay. listed as Kindle, downloaded as e-file - not sure where it might be stored.

    I was so excited when I learned about this book that I downloaded it immediately and read it straight through in one sitting. My husband asked me, somewhat incredulously, "You're reading a cookbook?" Technically, yes, but in the author's words, it's so much more than a cookbook! The Mossback Café Cookbook is "compiled" by Thomas Fenske, writing in the voice of Smidgeon Toll, a character from the books. It's a treasure of Texas-style cooking that I'm sure will go over well in my house (well, at le I was so excited when I learned about this book that I downloaded it immediately and read it straight through in one sitting.

It's a treasure of Texas-style cooking that I'm sure will go over well in my house (well, at least with my husband...) when I have a chance to try the recipes out. Having read The Fever, and looking forward to restarting A Curse that Bites Deep, it was a lot of fun to learn more about Smidgeon and the Mossback Café from Smidgeon's perspective. I smiled throughout, and it definitely rekindled my desire to pick up A Curse that Bites Deep again soon. I can't see how anyone would read the cookbook (check it out! only $.99!) and not want to read the books themselves, so even without trying the recipes I call the cookbook a great success. And I can't wait to try out the homemade chorizo!  Five stars!!!

    I absolutely loved this book and read it in about 2 hours. I cook a lot and am always trying new things.I'm a master food preserver and you know you have to use up all this stuff you put in jars and dry. I read cook books like a novel especially when they are like this and have a story to go with the recipes. Which are well written and easy to follow. I live near the Mexican border so the food is very familiar to me. I was so hungry while reading this.

I am going to start using one of the recipes tomorrow morning. You will have to read it to see that it so different. It is hash browns and mashed potatoes mashed together in a cake you brown in a skillet. Having an Irish Grandmother potatoes in any way shape or kind is intriguing. Also will have to try her trick for Potato Salad. If I was 40 years younger would want a cafe and use her recipes. Keep wondering when I can use them on other than family. They all sound so good even if the restaurant is fiction.

    I saw that there was a cookbook related to the novels by this author and I just had to have it. The recipes in this cookbook are such that most of the ingredients are things I already have in my cupboard or in my refrigerator! The corn casserole —OMG! Love it! Also, I’ve been wanting a good recipe for homemade BBQ sauce. Can’t wait to try the one in this book. This is a must have for good yummy food.
