What’s That You Say?

My husband, Gary, has an inoperable brain tumor that wraps around three lobes of his brain. This can affect his memory, hearing, comprehension, speech and more, but he copes remarkably well. His biggest frustrations for himself deal with his issues surrounding aphasia (difficulty expressing oneself through speech), anomia (difficulty remembering names of things), and hearing loss.

Agents of Change

As summer transitions into autumn and the larch fade to pale green then to gold, it’s almost impossible not to think about change. And, when you live in a community you love it is a constant lingering consideration, perhaps not in the forefront, but in the background.

It always intrigues me how sometimes things so obviously align... like they are meant to be.

New Mexico Red Chile Enchilada Casserole

Nothing can rival the charm, ease, wow factor, and the umami-dense flavour of an enchilada casserole. When you mix red chile sauce, copious amounts of cheese, veggies and/or meat together with some corn tortillas—it’s gonna be a good time. Enchiladas are a core component of New Mexico’s culinary heritage and I’m excited to share this recipe with you!
