Aviator and educator, retired to my little piece of nirvana in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. I love working around the place and especially relaxing and enjoying it! Cooking, reading, politics, music, and old cars and airplanes occupy most of my time. I am a 3-year cancer survivor and enjoy every day to its fullest!
Beef, pork, poultry, some seafoods, soups, beans, deserts, and even some greenery from time to time. Living nearly an hour from the nearest small town and 2 hours from the nearest place to do any major shopping, I've learned to keep lots of supplies on hand and cook/bake most everything from scratch. You won't find any "boxed" or "pre-packaged" stuff in my published recipes here. I grow my own beef and have the largest veggie garden in the area.
I love to make/bake deserts and have become quite good at cheesecakes, regular cakes and cookies. Fresh homemade ice creams and sorbets are always close to hand, too. These (and my appetizers) are probably the main reason the invitations to local pot-lucks keep coming in!
Southwestern fare is, of course, a mainstay in this area, and at the ranch as well. We love using all the wonderful spices and flavors indigenous to this area. New Mexico's version of "southwestern" is different than other areas. Hell, our enchiladas are even flat instead of rolled! Food is such an important part of our tradition that our official State question is "Red...or Green?" (If you don't understand that one, just drop me a line!)
