From The Big House to Your House is a cook book containing 200 recipes by six female inmates doing hard time at the Mountain View Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. All monies earned go to The Justice Institute. The authors, equipped with just a hot-pot (which warms water, but can’t reach temperatures that bring it to a boil) and limited food resources, still manage to make dishes like Frito pie, peach habanero salsa, faux sangria, tira misu chocolate, and a “baked potato” made from re-hydrated potato chips. Oh my god, these womens are eating better than I am!!
