My continuing blog, which has become a collection of biographical and historical information rather than the day-to-day journal which I had intended it to be.

I take pictures of things and they migrate here.


Coyote's Kitchen

Southwestern cooking and then some...

I grew up on my dad's turkey ranch in the Antelope Valley on the Mojave Desert, north of Los Angeles. Mom was a great cook, and from early on I took an interest in cooking. She taught me a lot, not just about cooking, but shopping for and preparing food as well, but I think watching her cook turkeys for family gatherings was what really piqued my interest in cooking.
