The Best of Typically Texas Cookbook
Our latest cookbook makes a great gift for friends and family


More than 40 years ago, Texas Electric Cooperatives published the Typically Texas Cookbook—a cookbook that captured the church social, potluck and dinnertime favorites of electric cooperative members living in rural and small town Texas. The recipes and flavors were rich in heritage and exemplified “good home cooking.”

After almost two decades of popularity, the Typically Texas Cookbook was replaced by its sequel, The Second Typically Texas Cookbook. The new volume continued the tradition of presenting recipes gathered from Texas electric cooperative members with an updated approach to ingredients that still produced simple and delicious flavors that warmed the heart.

There are more than 50,000 copies of Typically Texas cookbooks in kitchens across Texas. And, with a whole new generation of cooks preparing family meals, it’s time to share these recipes again. 

The Best of Typically Texas Cookbook is what its title suggests—a collection of the best recipes from the Typically Texas Cookbook and The Second Typically Texas Cookbook. This book—filled with more than 700 recipes, including more than 300 desserts—celebrates the legacy of Texas home cooks who have been making great food and bringing smiles to the dinner table for decades.
