Author Notes

My Daughter-in-Law, Kristen, is a talented cook. Many of her recipes have a Southwestern flair. She has learned to use the vegetables in her CSA box in creative ways. When sweet corn is in season she combines it with the kids' favorite food, avocados, to make a warm and refreshing salad. —lakelurelady

Review
I have been a serious cook from the time I first took an introductory course in French Cooking from a professional chef and cookbook author. My first love is French cooking but I also value the importance of fresh local ingredients. The freshest ingredients seasoned right and prepared with love will result in the perfect meal.
