Spring is here for many of us in the southwest and the Sonoran Desert can be quite spectacular this time of year. Arizona receives lots of winter visitors each spring and after traveling to downtown Chicago and the east coast several times – I completely understand why. While the area may be most well-known for the spring training baseball games and sunny skies, you might be surprised at how many winter visitors you’ll find at...

It’s time again for some smoked BBQ pork shoulder! Smoking meats is really quite simple, and can easily provide more than a few family-sized meals.

We’ve got a late harvest of strawberries from the backyard garden. Normally, they’d be dormant by now but the extra heat as has been sweet. Some fresh fruit goes with just about anything – and it’s just fine by itself if that’s all you’ve got. We served it with rosemary rolls and butter. Grow tip: We picked the plants up from the local nursery 3 weeks ago and once we
