I am a Texas girl through and through, born and raised in Texas as were my parents and grandparents! It is in my blood. I may be biased, but I think Texas has the best food in the world.
I have traveled internationally and tried fancy foods abroad, but there is nothing, I mean nothing better than Texas style cooking. It has the bold flavors that I love. The rest seems bland.
I was happy that the rest of the country got to come to Houston for that Big Football Game at the beginning of February and experience all the fabulous food Houston has to offer.
I love Texas. Where else could I grow up and ride a horse to the convenience store to get a soda?
Yes. It’s true. We rode our horses to the store and tied them up next to a grove of trees, and our dog would follow along with us and sit outside by the door, waiting for us to come out.
Everything is bigger and better in Texas. Where else can you drive 12 hours and still be in the same state?
What makes Wright Brand Bacon better? First of all, it is made in Texas and has the bold taste for Texans. Secondly, it has thick sliced, high-quality cuts of premium meat. Furthermore, it is naturally smoked and comes in Hickory Smoked and Applewood Smoked flavors.

What says Texas more than Spicy Bacon and Jalapenos?
For my TexFest inspired recipe, I included thick slices of Wright Brand Bacon sprinkled with chili powder, cayenne, and black pepper on top of Texas Toast with lots of cream cheese and Mexican cheese. It doesn’t get any easier or more delicious than that.
The Spicy Bacon gives a richer bacon experience and is truly the star of this Texas-inspired Spicy Bacon Jalapeno Texas Toast Cheesy Bread.
