I live at the feet of the majestic Rocky Mountains. I have a beautiful wife (who was a professional cook for several years) and four loveable children (two boys, two girls). My favorite cookbook is the one we in our family call the "Red Bible"; Betty Crocker's Cookbook (Golden Press, New York, Western Publishing Company, Inc., Racine, Wisconsin, (C) 1969). My wife uses it for all our favorite recipes. It's a classic, we found it in a donations store (think Good Will). My wife grew up using this book, and learning from her mother.
