I live in deep East Texas, transplanted from West Texas. That was quite a change for me. I love to cook and read recipes, although I don't seem to cook as much as I used to. I am retired now and spend time in my flowerbeds, but it's so hot right now. I'm new to posting recipes on this site and love to check out all the wonderful recipes. I always come to this website when I need a recipe for some event or occasion and as a rule, find something new.
