Pork Chops & Applesauce: A Collection of Recipes and Reflections (in print), Sweet Apple Temptations (in print), Bumper Crop: Beginning with Apples (e-book), and The Adventures of Lily and Leon: A Soppy Fish Tale (e-book).
Cynthia's cookbooks have a home-spun feel that show her passion for cooking and baking. Her children's fable was created out of a need for parents to be more attentive about teaching their children that, no matter the color of our skin, our innermost need for love and acceptance is the same in all our hearts.
Cynthia’s popular newspaper food columns (over 200 of them) have appeared in various publications since 1999. Her work has also appeared in New Mexico Magazine, New Mexico Woman, Funds for Writers, Woman's World Magazine, and Seasons of Our Lives: Summer, Autumn and Spring editions.
She had contributed to the “Chicken Soup” series with an essay in Chicken Soup for the Mother and Son Soul, Sister’s Soul 2, Divorce and Recovery, My Resolution, Food and Love, Just Us Girls, The Dog Did What? and Finding My Faith.
Briggs has talked “food, writing and techniques for living a more gratifying life” on radio and TV, at rotary clubs and women’s associations, and at schools and universities. She teaches publishing to budding authors and memoir writing to those who wish to capture and then share their stories with upcoming generations. She writes and publishes, the Country Cook Newsletter, which is a monthly publication and she also maintains her blog that's filled with family oriented stories and recipes that come from the heart.view less
