easiness of those simpler times, touches the heart of the reader.

heart warming cookbook offering a variety of sumptuous home-cooking style recipes
that provide wholesome nourishment to the reader’s soul. Cynthia gives
her audience a glimpse of her past as she dishes-up fond memories of those with
whom she has shared plentiful dinners and prized recipes.
Cynthia’s interviews with Southwest cooks highlight her
ardent belief that through the joy of cooking, all culinary hearts beat as one.
She believes through the sharing of our recipes we engage in an ongoing connection
with family, friends and acquaintances—bonds we carry with us through
