June is a month just meant for celebration-- June brings us a glorious bouquet of flowers from roses to shy little Lilies of the Valley to stately zinnias. I have always just loved June and all it stands for—the longest day, romance, graduation and many new beginnings…and endings.
With all the many reasons to celebrate, I am sharing some of my festive, favorite summer appetizer recipes for a lovely celebration or dinner or gathering. They are from my forthcoming new cookbook, “Simply Southwest”, which is available now for pre-order from Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or Indy Books.
Also,my revised “Southwestern Kitchen” can be pre-ordered. Both are coming out this fall, October 4 for the “Southwestern Kitchen” and November 22 for the new “Simply Southwest”. Pre-ordering my cookbooks is a very important aspect to getting higher ratings...so if you want the cookbookbs, please pre-order and I will forward you an autographed insignia label later when they come out. Here are three links where you can pre-order either "Simply Southwest" or the re-publication of "Jane Butel's Southwestern Kitchen."
