Reviews

"I've been using this cookbook for years and love it! It has the best Posole recipe I've ever come across. Lots of winners in it. I am ordering another copy, the dog just chewed up the one I had. It would make a great gift for anyone wanting to experience Colorado cuisine or who just missed the tastes of home!" --D. Ashley


"My wife was very happy and couldn't wait to try some of the recipes. Logically organized this cookbook is a winner." --Larry F. Lewis
