Month O’ Fruit Salsas: Mango Cucumber

Month O’ Fruit Salsas: Mango Cucumber Most of the time I prefer a smooth dip over a salsa, but on a hot night not too long ago I got a hankering for a fruit salsa that couldn’t be denied. After some research, I decided on a mango-cucumber salsa. The freshness of the mango and cucumber was exactly what I wanted on that particular summer evening. And that’s when it started. A mild fascination with fruit salsas developed and...

Aji Amarillo Chip Dip

Aji Amarillo Chip Dip This dip was truly an experiment. I read a few recipes for aji amarillo dip, yeah, but when it came time to produce, I just threw a bunch of ingredients together until I found a flavor I liked. I’m not sure what I expected. Something spicy? Something unique? Again, not sure. But what I got was a nice potato chip dip that surprised my friends at a 4th of July barbecue. The recipe that follows is a...

Horseradish Stinks.

It goes great with all those barbecues you’ll...

But, then again, both holidays are a good reason to eat and drink, and I can definitely get excited about that. This year, I...

Green Chile Makes a Meal

Green Chile Makes a Meal Here in Colorado you can rarely order a burrito or chile relleno or enchilada without it being smothered in green chile, and that’s a good thing. Once you’ve drenched your cheesy Mexican food in green chile there’s no turning back. As much as I enjoy green chile, I’ve never bothered to master a recipe, and I’m not sure why. I think this spring is the spring. My mission:...

Carpet Picnics and Chili Cheese Dip

Carpet Picnics and Chili Cheese Dip Not everyone gets Twitter, I know. But I do. I have met some great people there. I gather recipes there. I get hilarious answers to my questions there. Yes, Twitter can be a major time suck, but it’s also brought a lot of people to my site who may not have found me otherwise. And who wouldn’t enjoy that? Take, for instance, Candace Karu, Lifestyle Commentator & Favorite Foodie for...
