Speaking of recipes, I invite you to find a recipe, try it out for your family and friends, and then come back and rate it to let me and everyone else know what you thought of the recipe. You can even add a comment about the recipe if you have more to say than stars can show! Have a recipe you'd like to share with other Arkansas Cooks fans?

I also want to make sure you know about the Twedt Family Cookbook! It's a collection of favorite family recipes my family has gathered and handed down through the generations, and when we put them all together, we knew we had a special cookbook that we had to make available to you.

We will be running a great show from Shangri La Resort for the next few weeks. Vareen Carr is a master of pie baking and her small yet wonferful cafe on Lake Ouachita is a step back in time and simplicity. I just love this one and hope you will too!
