I live in New Mexico in the high desert. I've loved to cook as long as I can remember - my favorite cookbooks are the Doubleday Cookbook for a comprehensive reference, and Joyce Goldstein's The Mediterranean Kitchen for labor-intensive (but incredible) restaurant-quality recipes. I like anything by Madhur Jaffrey, as well.
