How to make a girl from Texas feel at home?

I'm dating a girl from Texas and I know she misses home. Unfortunately, I'm from Germany and have no idea how to make someone from Texas feel at home since I've never been to Texas. Oh, and we are up north in Michigan. Any suggestions?

Would definitely recommend taking a trip to Texas if you are as serious as you seem to be about this girl! Texas is really hard to describe without actually having been there unfortunately. It really is its own "Country" in many ways. Just think about how hard it really is to truly give someone who has never been to Germany a real feel for the country which again is quite different than many other European countries:-).
Food a great start, but since you don't mention what part of Texas, it varies from area to area, hard to come up with specifics.

In order to make her feel at home, you should get to know what she likes doing, so that it will be easier for you to surprise her. You could rent some Texas movies which she might like and watch, and cook her a famous dinner at home. This will most certainly giver her the home feeling she misses so much.

I know she mentioned to me that she is missing the food. I'm trying my best with respect to food already. :)
Are there any Texas movies that you can recommend? I appreciate any help!

There are a bunch of cool movies! Just ask her! But please don't rent Texas chainsaw massacre 1 or 2 because I know my best friend is from Texas and she wont watch those since they are true and it freaks her out! Not the best advice but it is a tip! Good luck! Btw, where in Michigan?

Take her to a restaurant she use to eat in Texas. Smell is one of the best ways to bring back memories. I think they have Steak'n'Shake and Texas Roadhouse in both Texas and Michigan. And there are a couple Cracker Barrels in Michigan, but I'm not sure about Texas.

I would say take her to a good classic Barbecue restaurant, find a country dance club that plays country music and take her there. Also make sure she can Skype with her family back home when she wants. Buy yourself a pair of cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, and wear them for her.

Ok... I'm a Texan and I moved away a little over a year ago. Anything someone did or said to "remind" me of Texas just made me miss is even more. I'd honestly recommend you hit I 35 and go south. The first time I returned to Texas (a few months ago) was the best thing. It really helped.
