Hi, I'm Tiffany!

After writing a dozen cookbooks and years of astrology columns, I launched Spellbound Publishers. I also curate live music events that always have great food. When I'm not on the magical mystery tour, you can find me on my yoga mat, reading tarot cards, or biking the trails to the nearest hot spring. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter in the link above and I'd love to connect with you on social.

My Cookbooks

I started writing cookbooks in 2009 with my first series: The Trailer Food Diaries. This cookbook series covers stories and recipes from food trucks in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Portland, and Columbus. After that I wrote a series of Texas-based cookbooks including The Big Bend Cookbook, The Terlingua Chili Cookbook, and The Big Country Cookbook.

The Terlingua Chili Cookbook »

The Terlingua Chili Cookbook features the sparse desert community of Terlingua, Texas, known for the infamous chili cook-off that takes place their annually. Complete with recipes so good they could charm a snake, this non-traditional cookbook takes you on the road trip of a lifetime culminating in the Woodstock of all chili-fests: The Terlingua chili cook-off.

"Tiffany Harelik did a fabulous job of capturing the true essence of Big Bend's cohesive diversity. We have an array of wildlife, people, and flavors in this desert mountain region, but everything blends perfectly together. From the starry nights and Chisos Mountains to the traditional chicken fried steak and tortilla soup, this narrative-style cookbook will not disappoint. The stories pack a punch too!"



"When I first started flipping through the pages, I started to see that this was no ordinary cookbook series. Yes, it has gorgeous full color photography, and yes it was full to the brim with detailed recipes. But this was also a story--a journey through Austin's trailer food scene, full of anecdotes from the trailer owners and chefs. Love that it expanded to other cities!"
