Saguaros in Bloom: Southwestern Meal – Sample Chapter

While we hope that all our blog followers, friends and EVERYONE will buy our book…we also understand that some of you might want a peek inside before purchasing online.  It is definitely much easier to evaluate the quality, appeal and content of a book when you...

Glowing Review

Thank you for the delightful cookbook!  I am throughly enjoying it. The stories, the pictures, and the recipes are so fun.  I love to cook and find myself distracted at work with your book at my desk:). The pictures remind me of my childhood and the stories of my...

Big Breakfast – Burritos

Growing up and still today we like to have “Big Breakfast” on one morning of the weekend. How we started calling it this I am not sure…other than it is the easy reference to the very thing it describes…a breakfast where we cook and it ends up being on the larger side...

Farewell to Basil – Lemon Basil Martinis

Fall is trying to sneak into the south. Summer is fighting to keep hold, but a few nights I have felt Fall gaining a slight lead. For those of us who live in this part of the country we “enjoy” about 6 months of warm to sweltering, summer-like temperatures, so Fall is...

Garden Abundance Pesto

Every February I start getting antsy to put in my herb garden. Now, for most people, February may seem like a strange time of year to think of gardening. I, however, live in sunny southern Arizona and February is the most perfect time to get your gardening on,...

Tomato and Sunshine Salad

As you know from a previous post, I really love to grow things that I can use in meals for my hubby and I. This year we had two bumper crops: cherry tomatoes and basil. Fortunately, tomatoes and basil is a match made in culinary heaven. We have been eating tons and...

Clinging to Summer – Strawberry Vinaigrette

A common mantra of the parents of school-aged kids around this time of year is “Where did the summer go?” While school starting does signal the end of vacation days for the kids, what is “summertime” really? Is it simply when schools are out between Spring and Fall...

Man vs. Barbeque

My precious husband loves to grill. Present him with a piece of anything that once mooed, clucked, oinked, honked, or bit a hook and he is willing to have a go at it. The only problem is that while he does not lack in enthusiasm he does sometimes fall short with...

Can’t Get Enough – Balsamic Vinegar

I love Balsamic Vinegar. Dark, white, infused, imported, you name it I can find a use for it and will almost certainly like it. That said…I do have a favorite.  It is hands down THE BEST for dipping bread. I also use it to drizzle on grilled chicken, salads, steamed...

A Quick and Tasty Weeknight Dinner

Both my husband and I work full time and when we get home from work, we want a fast but tasty dinner so that we can unwind for the evening. The key here is tasty. If it’s not tasty, why bother? I try to set a 30 minute time limit for myself in which to have dinner...

Ice Cubes of Yore

It was our last morning after enjoying a wonderfully relaxing weekend away. We were lazing in bed, not yet ready to go home, when I turned to my husband and said, “Do you remember the old metal ice cube trays with the handles you lifted up to loosen the ice cubes?” He...

Barbecue Cat

My husband it not a cat person. Never has been. We are however a cat family. We also lay calm to being a dog family and our dogs (or just one dog now) always love the cats. It began when Jennifer was about nine years old. She fell in love with an orange tabby kitten...
