This is Heart Mountain. This particular view is from the Rattlesnake Mountain side. My hubby, whom I will adoringly call Construction Man, and myself began a Jeep touring/outfitting business two years ago. We love to create new excursions for our customers by going out and exploring all the trails surrounding Cody, Wyoming. Copious amounts of photos decorate my phone, computers and website.

I’m always up for new adventures–cooking, new foods, tasting new wines, meeting new folks and seeing new scenery.

This is a part of my reality. Shotgun in a Jeep for many hours at a time. I’m not complaining, for the wildlife and mountain vistas feed my inner cowboy girl  and inspire me to write, cook and sing.

Yep. This is where I most certainly come from.

Saddle up, Missy, we got a trail to blaze!

HOWDY!

I am so glad you are here and I can’t wait to get started on this culinary blogging trail; one woman’s journey of exploring her French roots in Northern Michigan blended with a lifetime of adventure in America’s wild, way out west–Wyoming. As a child, growing up in Michigan, somehow I just knew my life would always revolve around horses, music, Wyoming, food, faith and family.

My 4-H leaders, Kimmer and Marla,  enrolled in the equestrian program at a community college in Northwest Wyoming. After two years, they returned and filled my head with big, wonderful horse stories. I vowed then and there (age 13) that I would be heading out to Wyoming someday.

Forty-two years later, my dreams fulfilled, horse trainer, musician, wife, mother, cook and writer, I am ecstatic to share my wild, western windblown life and eats with you.  So, tighten up your cinch, buckle on your spurs, and brace yourself for family and French cuisine, cookbook reviews, photos, fireside tunes and tales–Wyo-cowgirl style. (Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of motherly (and wifely) secrets and advice along the trail as well.) Saddle up, Missy,  we’ve got a trail to blaze!
