Help create SMU’s 2013 holiday book list

'Sweet On Texas' bookcover

“Sweet On Texas” by SMU staff member Denise Gee was part of the University’s 2012 holiday book list. The Office of News and Communications has created a new online entry form for 2013 submissions.

Attention all authors: The SMU Office of News and Communications wants your book news. And for 2013, it’s easier than ever to send it in.

All entries will be considered for SMU’s holiday gift-giving book list, posted annually to the University home page.

This year, SMU News and Communications has created an easy-to-use template for authors to provide all necessary information about their latest books. Please use the template at smu.edu/News/Books and send a cover image from your book to smunews@smu.edu. The deadline is Friday, Nov. 15, 2013.

For the 8th holiday season in a row, SMU Forum is requesting festive recipes from all over the University community, and the world. And to start things off, we’re sharing a recipe that may change your mind about the much-maligned holiday fruitcake.

Denise Gee, a public information officer in the SMU Office of News and Communications, leads a double life as a cookbook author and entertaining guru – and as a former foods editor with Southern Living, she knows her way around great recipes. Her latest work, Sweet On Texas: Lovable Confections From the Lone Star State, was published by Chronicle Books in October.

Sweet On Texas contains 65 carefully selected dessert recipes, combined with Gee’s own historical notes, fun facts and inimitably warm writing about the people and places of Texas.

'Sweet On Texas' bookcover

“Sweet On Texas” by SMU staff member Denise Gee, available from booksellers and specialty stores.

To honor the season, Gee shares her own recipe for Mint Julep Fruitcake, as it appears in Sweet On Texas. She also includes an all-new account of how she overcame her aversion to “one of the worst cakes on the planet” to create this light and tasty treasure.

Make sure your favorite is among the treats appearing here. We’re looking for side dishes, main courses, desserts, sweets, food gifts, game-day snacks, kosher and ethnic treats, vegetarian recipes…you name it. Add your recipe with a comment on this post, or send it to Kathleen Tibbetts, 214-768-7672, fax 214-768-7663.
