We’ve now pulled the tomato plants in the garden. Frost set in last night, and we didn’t want to bother with covering them to prevent them from freezing. But, we did get our fair share of tomatoes from them before pulling them. This recipe is one of the examples of what we’ve done with them. […]
This fresh salsa is so delicious, and so simple to make too. I’ve made it 4 times already, and loved it each and every time! The mango adds a nice sweet element, that offsets the heat of the jalapeno pepper perfectly. The lime juice in the dressing adds a nice tang as well. All in […]

We really enjoy this pasta salad. It’s simple to make, and very versatile, depending on your likes & what you have on hand.
