Wow, what a year and it's only May! We moved to Tucson from Missouri in late March and We Love it! Madly Huge differnce from the Show-me State. It REALLY is a Dry Heat! My husband grew up in the desert in California and has been wanting to wander this way since we met, and when the opportunitycame our way, we set off. I am always on the lookout for new-to-me old cookbooks. I love to read the cookbooks to get ideas and inspiration. I particularly enjoy the ones that read like books. For the amount of cooks books I own it is surprizing just how little I ever follow a recipe. I am always and forever reinventing recipes and making them suit our tastes. We have tried a few restaurants in Tucson and look forward to the vast diversity that the city offers.. We have found the perfect little taco stand that serves wonderful tacos and many other items we want to try!
