sauces that don’t remind me of diapers.

the reason i haven’t been blogging….

Well, I had high hopes of blogging at least 3x/week, major fail. Turns out, when you don’t have a full time live-in night nurse, babies actually take up a lot of time. Like all your time. So I haven’t been able to do anything besides mom shiz and gallery stuff. My bad. Now that I have “mastered” a schedule, I’ve started cooking more, but nothing super fancy because I had zero patience. I also don’t really cook a lot of brown sauces anymore. After a sweet little angel physically shits on your hand, you lose any appetite for chocolate, steak sauce and peanut butter. If you don’t have a kid, you’ll understand once you change your first “formula diaper”.  Hopefully my little cutie will eat human food soon, I don’t know how much longer I can stomach her smells. The burps are even worse. Anyways, here are the salsa recipes below. They are pretty much good on anything.


Black Bean & Corn Salsa

  • 1 can black beans (organic if possible)
  • 1 can no-salt added corn (organic if possible)
  • ½ C. chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 chopped fresh jalapeño

Combine everything together and let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. Add on top of salads/nachos/tacos, or serve as a dip.


Tomatillo Salsa

  • 5 tomatillos, weird outer skins removed
  • 3 jalapeños
  • ½ C. cilantro
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ C. water

Blend everything until its salsa consistency. ROCKET SCIENCE. Here’s a little extra pic, just for good measure.
