My daughter visited Colorado a number of years ago and brought me the "Colorado Collage" cookbook from the Junior League of Denver.
I have used this cookbook so many times and it holds many favorite recipes.
The recipes are easy to follow, with commonly found ingredients and the photographs are delectable.
