Thank you for stopping by my Web site. On the left of every page are links to my books where you can find a description, the Table of Contents and reviews of each of the books. Click on the title and you'll find the full description.
My new book Cooking the Wild Southwest: Delicious Recipes for Desert Plants has hit the shelves. The book includes many modern recipes for edible wild plants found in the Southwest and ties in to the current craze for foraging. If you live in the Southwest and consider yourself a "locavore," this book is for you. Look for new, updated recipes (how about Saguaro-Merlot-Chipotle Glaze for Chicken or Mesquite Banana layer cake?)

A Blog and a Video
In my blog I discuss which plants are in season and gathering and cooking tips for those plants. I will be featuring other cooks who use the edible plants of the Southwest in new and exciting ways.

Talks for Your Group
I am available to give talks and demonstrations related to my books.
West of Paradise: Exploring Southeastern Arizona is a great guide for anyone who loves the Southwest or is ready to begin exploring this exciting region. I am available to give a talk and slide show on the wonderful sites in Southeastern Arizona to groups of 50 or more.
The Prickly Pear Cookbook, The New Southwest Cookbook, and Cooking the Wild Southwest all feature delicious recipes from top resort and restaurant chefs for both wild foods and regional domestically grown foods. Great new ideas for the age-old questions of what to have for dinner tonight. Would your group like a cooking class?
I'll Go and Do More: Annie Dodge Wauneka, Navajo Leader and Activist, was a finalist for the Willa Award. Now Keeping the Rope Straight the middle reader's version, is available from Salina Bookshelf. I am available for a talk entitled "American's Native American Women: The Ordinary and The Extraordinary," which includes a discussion of Annie Wauneka's life.
