My kitchen is torn apart as a new floor is being intalled, so without a stove to cook and photograph something for my blog, I wrote about the chef-invented recipes in The New Southwest Cookbook which was recently re-released.

They used a generous hand and knew how to layer flavors so their dishes sizzled in the mouth. Inventive cooks can use some of their ideas to invent their own dishes.
