Christmas makes us feel all warm inside. After all, it’s that special time of year when our more evangelical relatives come over and preach to us about going to hell if we don’t find a girl-hole to poke and tickle.
Ah, yes. Ho, ho, ho.
So we’ve got a secret weapon in our fight against holiday homophobia.
It’s called Big Ranch, Big City. This absolutely fabulous cookbook from gay chef Louis Lambert (pictured above) is filled with easy-to-prepare, sinfully delicious recipes that celebrate his Texas heritage while fulfilling every single palate-level craving of anyone with a love of food.
The award-winning chef has restaurants in Austin and Fort Worth and he’s cooked up a quite the devoted following over the past few years. So it should be no surprise that he’s a wizard in the kitchen.
So, F the turkey and dressing. Just say no to ham and sweet potatoes.
Instead, think Gingered Acorn Squash Soup, Slow-Smoked Pork Butt with Vinegar Barbecue Sauce and Roasted Peanut Butter Cookies.
Or Hot Smoked Pecan-Cured Salmon, Spicy Pork Tamale Gratin and Peach Cake Cobbler.
Your guests will delight in the deliciousness and never know that they’re getting a double dose of gay in their mouths.
This holiday season, bring on the flavor. And bring on the gay.
It’s what Baby Jesus would want.
