Readers checked out 58,512 books from East Aldine’s High Meadows Branch Library last year.
Unfortunately, a cookbook featuring the best recipes for the best food in the neighborhood was not among them.
Staff at the library have been trying to convince patrons to submit their favorite family food recipes for a local cookbook as part of the annual celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15).
So far, not a single tamale recipe, not one enchilada special sauce, not a single slice of tres leches cake has been submitted.
With all the fabulous cooks (and restaurants) in East Aldine, bragging rights are up for grabs.
Who makes the best tacos? Enchiladas? Chimichangas?
