My husband and I recently sold our businesses and are now living our dream. We live on 20 acres in NW Arkansas and think we are in heaven. We raise birds. Peacocks, guineas, muskovy ducks, turkeys, chickens. We are busier than we have ever been and lovin it. My favorite cookbook, hmmmmmm, that is hard. I have so many. Actually, it is Calf Fries to Caviar but I don't cook from it because of the it's not Weight Watchers friendly. We are from Texas and that book was written there full of Texas recipes. Tex-Mex is my fav.
