Watch a video of Food Editor Paula Disbrowe reprising the Imperial Tenderloin recipe that we first published in June 1959. That’s our Retro Recipe this month as we’ve been featuring dishes from past issues of the magazine all year to celebrate our 75th anniversary. Also, check out the original Imperial Tenderloin recipe and the pages that featured it in June 1959.
Chet Garner had to see Rogan Field for himself. That’s the San Saba High School football field built over a cemetery, where spirits sometimes seem to be at play as much as the two football teams. Enjoy his video.

We gathered many more events and milestones than we could fit in the magazine. Do you know when the first Terlingua Chili Cook-Off was held? Or what pink granite dome the Nature Conservancy deeded to the state in 1978? How about what the highest temperature ever recorded in Texas is? Our online timeline is a breath of fresh air.
