a bowl of diablo salsa


those of you who have spent some time in artsyville know that cooking is a form of torture for me. but there is one thing that i always make rather than buy: salsa. mine is a simple concoction, as it has to be because i am a very simple-minded person when it comes to kitchen-related activities. but something about it just works. it beats the booty out of store-bought salsa, and all goes well as long as i remember to follow my own handy tip based on a few unforgettable experiences.

a HUGE thank you to suzanne from an open [sketch]book for making artsyville her link love of the week (check out her sketches - they are fabulous!), to miss aimee from the very cool mostly mod for the same honor last week, and to pam at present magazine who featured the groovy doodle card project this past weekend. and make sure you get over to feeling inspired to see what valentina did with the clothespin project for her art show. wow! hers way outdo mine, and look at that packaging!

i love the colorful art (and thank you for the recipe)... though i do have to admit to a wee bit of loving concern over your using a food processor... those fingers seem to have a tenuous relationship at best with blades... :)

I love your written thoughts, Aimee!! LOL Diablo Salsa? I don't think my tastebuds can handle any habanero. Thanks for the recipe though!

Ay caramba, muy caliente! I LOVE me some salsa, the hotter the better. YUM! I must agree, fresh beats the jarred variety any day. I must try this one.

Love your creative streak. You're on fire! Ssssssssss

I love your colorful art and I got a double treat while visiting. Salsa! Yes, I agree, homemade is the way to go with salsa. I think it's the cilantro that gives it the extra special flavor. Nothing like it! Don't forget the green tortilla chips on St. Paddy's!

Okay Jen (Painted Fish) has declared this THE dish to be made by you when she comes to Lawrence! And I've been meaning to pop in, cause I'm getting pretty excited about her coming - and I've been wanting to catch up with you - cause I'm excited to meet you as well!

The salsa sounds great, we are big on salsa around here.

Thanks for the links, I'm always interested in people's sketches.
