On their 50-acre hillside property, which has no neighbors in sight but offers them a clear view of the weather coming in from the west, the two women produce milk from 12 French Alpine goats.

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
