I am a southwest New Mexico native who lived most of my adult life in San Diego. I moved to Georgia last January and love it. Everything is so GREEN! When I moved from CA to GA to start a new life with my high school sweetheart, I retired from the hectic executive corporate life and started by own consulting business which I run out of my home. I can set my own hours so I have lots of time to cook (and someone to cook for!) which has always been a passion of mine. My VSO (very significant other) is hispanic and shares with me many tradational SW New Mexico dishes that he learned from his mother which I now add to my own library of favorite recipes.
