I was born & raised in Texas, but now I travel the country with my husband for his work in the wind industry. I love traveling with him and our two wonderful dogs though it keeps us away from our families for long periods of time. I love 'Zaar because I dont have to travel with bulky, limited cookbooks; every recipe I can imagine is always at my fingertips! I do a lot of Tex-Mex cooking because we're are usually "up North" and, no offense, but the food can be rather bland up this way. I love flavorfull, heart-warming meals that keep 'em coming back for more!
