redb  Why I love to cook:

Howdy from Texas!  I have always admired my mother’s ability to bring people together using her talents in the kitchen.  My passion for cooking started when I was a young girl helping my mother prepare nightly dinners and sweet treats.  Some of my fondest memories are of late nights spent icing dozens and dozens and dozens of sugar cookies with my mom.  She is the one that taught me the joy of serving others.  I hope my recipes are a source of great joy for you and your families should you decide to try them.  Here’s to warm fuzzy memories made in the kitchen!

Why a redbird?  Well if you haven’t noticed I have red hair!  During my musical theater years as a teenager there was a sweet old man that always called me redbird.  Also my bow stand is surrounded by so many cardinals you can’t even count them all!  They make great company and get super close to you when you blend in with the tree your sitting in!  😀

  redbMore about me:

I love to bow and rifle hunt.  I love to sing.  I do not like iced tea which is a federal crime in the south.  I’m pretty silly the majority of each day. 🙂  I like wine and beer and hole in the wall places!

Texas:

As a Texan there are a few staple things here in my state that are worth mentioning for better or for worse.  The food here is great and is blended with flavors from our southwestern neighbors in Mexico!

Mosquitos- They will find you and your outdoor picnic.

Hunting- Many here still cherish the tradition of harvesting wild game.

Meat- Texas does not disappoint when it comes to the steak and burger stereotypes.  We love our meat!

  1. Thanks for following my blog! I hope if you can find the time that you will stop by my page called “Reasons to Smile” and leave a comment. It’s a list of things people are thankful for, just to encourage each other. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Also, have you heard about using the Sweet Basil herb to help with mosquito bites?  I wrote a post about it you might enjoy reading if your Off spray is not keeping them away as well as you’d like.  Have a great day!
