Recipe: Thick & Chunky Garden Salsa

Hello everyone,

Over the past week, I’ve been looking for the perfect salsa recipe for canning, and I think I finally found it. I stumbled upon Tim J Turner’s Youtube channel and found a video for, “Canning and Sharing a Thick Salsa Recipe.” I adjusted the recipe a bit, and the result was amazing! It produced a slightly sweet, a tad bit spicy, thick salsa—perfect for your next potluck or date night in. I’m so excited to share this Recipe: Thick & Chunky Garden Salsa.

As you know, I planted a garden this year, and I may gone a bit overboard with tomatoes. I don’t even like tomatoes that much. Luckily, I do love pasta sauce and salsa. What better way to put all those cherry and vine tomatoes to use than to make a bunch of sauces and salsas ahead of time?

Chips and salsa is such a feel good party food. It’s perfect for game night, football season, and so many other get togethers. Now I’m ready for fall with eight cans of homemade salsa! It has just the right amount of heat, and it’s a tad bit sweet. That means it will satisfy a variety of food palates! This salsa pairs really well with veggie tacos and simple rice bowls. Impress your friends at your next get together. Bring along some homemade Thick & Chunky Garden Salsa!

Cheers and happy snacking!

Recipe: Vegan Homemade Pasta Dough

lasagna_2Hello everyone,

Over the holidays, my partner and I did a lot of binge watching. You can relate, right? One of our new favorite videos is Pasta Grannies on YouTube.

The premise is simple. A British woman goes around recording Italian grannies making pasta. So simple, yet so entirely addictive to watch!

I don’t have any memories of my grandparents making pasta from scratch from my childhood, but my mom does. She told me all about how her childhood Sundays were a full day of rolling out gnocchi and simmering sauce. I suppose watching Pasta Grannies is comforting and helps me feel more connected to my Italian side. Plus, I was happily surprised that many of the pasta recipes they used were vegan.

Vegan Tofu Avocado Coconut Curry

Hello friends,

I suppose you’ve noticed that I’ve been purchasing a lot of avocados lately, and this week isn’t any different. They are a great source of ‘the good fat’ and pretty tasty too. I had a hankering for indian food this weekend so I decided to attempt to make a vegan curry from scratch without a recipe. I’m happy to say that it was a success!
