Retiring in the hill country of central Texas has helped me embrace a host of ecclectic tastes. I love traditional southern cooking, Texas bar b que and Tex-Mex food, as well as pretty much all sweets. I just learned to cook in the past couple of years and love to try new things. I am already famous in my family for my dry rub that I use on briskets. Thanks Recipezaar chefs for all of your ideas and great menus!
