From The Big House To Your, House has two hundred easy-to-prepare and tasty recipes for meals, snacks, and desserts. Written by six women imprisoned in Texas, the recipes can be made from basic items a prisoner can purchase from their commissary, or people on the outside can purchase from a convenience or grocery store. Also included are many cost-saving tips. This book is the result of the women's cooking experiences while confined at the Mountain View Unit, a women's prison in Gatesville, Texas. They met and bonded in the G-3 dorm housing only prisoners with a sentence in excess of 50 years. While there isn't much freedom to be found when incarcerated, using items from the commissary to cook what they wanted offers them a wonderful avenue for creativity and enjoyment. The recipes in this book are the result of their culinary adventures. They hope these recipes will ignite your taste buds as well as spark your imagination to explore unlimited creations of your own. You are encouraged to make substitutions to your individual tastes and/or availability of ingredients. The women hope you will find enjoyment in the recipes they have created to find a home-felt comfort during unfortunate times. Happy Cooking!
