My sister who lives in Arizona had this book on her coffee table. I picked it up and couldn't put it down. I loved the recipes in it so much she went down the next day to buy me my own copy. I'm so thrilled she did!

It's difficult to find a cookbook that has such a variety of recipes, easy to make meals that are created with items commonly used.....but this one does it all! I've made several of the recipes and received rave reviews from family and friends. I really enjoyed the seafood recipes....the flavors burst and the spiciness can be notched up if you enjoy a bit more of a bite.

Highly recommend this book. The title indicates "real women eat chiles", but I venture to say everyone in the family will eat and enjoy these delicious meals.
