Pre Pub Book Buzz: Queso! by Lisa Fain

For today's pre pub, aka books I'm dying to get my hands on in the coming months, I'm featuring a cookbook. Y'all know I'm just as much a cookbook junkie as a regular book junkie and Lisa Fain is definitely one of my favorite cookbook writers. Known online as the Homesick Texan, Fain has already released two books packed with Texas favorites. (She became a personal favorite of mine when she shared the recipe for Ninfa's Green Sauce. Try it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!)

Her latest endeavor is something very close to my heart - or stomach - Queso! Yep, Fain has put together an entire cookbook devoted to this cheesy dip!

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

A fun, full-color look at everyone's favorite cheese dip, with history, tips, facts, and 50 recipes from beloved food blogger Lisa Fain, "the Homesick Texan."

Queso (aka chile con queso) is a spicy, cheesy, comforting cult favorite that has long been a delicious addition to any party, barbecue, or family gathering. This appealing and accessible book features a mix of down-home standards and contemporary updates, from historical, regional, and Mexican quesos to vegan and dessert quesos, including Chile Verde Con Queso, Squash Blossom Queso Fundido, Fajita Queso, Cactus and Corn Queso Poblano, Frito Salad with Queso Dressing, Pulled Pork Queso Blanco, and Sausage Queso Biscuits. Whether you're relaxing with friends, having a few people over to watch the football game, or entertaining a hungry crowd, queso is the perfect party food for good times.

Oh, I'm already hungry! 

Queso! doesn't hit shelves until September, but that does give you plenty of time to head over to Fain's blog and familiarize yourself with her recipes. Check out her previous cookbooks as well for fantastic Texas and Tex-Mex recipes!
