Giving back a dish.

I am giving my good friend back her dish she let me borrow. I would really like to make her something, but I don’t have much time. So I put a cup of one of my favorite gluten free baking mixes in a ziplock and included the rest of the instructions on a note card:) I think I will put Saran wrap over the top:) what do you think? Have you any other ideas?


Fresh Salsa

Upon the request of my dear friend Cari McWilliams I am posting this picture of the salsa I made last night along with the recipe.  This picture was shot by Tami on her iPhone using the FREE Instagram application.  All the vegetables, besides the garlic, cilantro, and spices were provided by Dale and Tammy Medley (they have an amazing garden)– Thank you:)  This is very easy…and I think you will like it!


  • 10 fresh garden tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion (any color)
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1-2 jalapenos
  • 1 bell pepper
  • a bunch of cilantro
  • lime juice
  • a dash of cumin
  • a dash of salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • a dash of red pepper flakes
  • a dash of chili powder
Wash all your vegetables and lay out to air dry.
I use a food processor but you can also use a blender.
Cut the core out of the tomatoes and slice in half.
Cut up other vegetables.
Place in food processor/blender with seasonings and lime juice.
I like to use the pulse function on my food processor.
Pulse up the vegetables till it is the texture you like.
Take a taste test with a tortilla chip and add anything extra to give it the desired flavor you like.
I like my salsa pretty spicy and a little on the saucy chunky side.  Enjoy!
