Prior to 2011, in Texas, selling any food from your home kitchen made you an illegal "food establishment" in the eyes of DSHS, even if you operated on a very small scale selling low-risk foods like baked goods.  You could not legally sell homemade food.  

A group of dedicated home bakers changed that in 2011.

SB 81 was signed into law by Governor Rick Perry on June 17, 2011, and the law was expanded in 2013 by HB 970.
