Just 5: Homemade Salsa

As a kid there was nothing I loved more than chips and salsa as a snack. Over the years we would add queso to the list. I remember coming home from long days at school and my brother and I would sit on the couch sharing a bowl of chips and salsa. It was delicious and always hit the spot. While I’m a bit older now, I still absolutely love this snack and have been exploring recipes to make homemade salsa. This recipe has become a staple around our house. It takes around 5 minutes and 5 ingredients to make. We’re lucky if a jar of this lasts more than a week around our house, so I’m sure you’ll love this staple as well.

Paired with spices of cumin, coriander, apricots, and balsamic vinegar, these skewers can be made either on a grill pan over the stove or over the charcoal flames.

gluten-free everything muffin

Gluten-Free Everything Muffins

There’s something about gluten-free baking. While the offerings have come a long way, it’s challenge to get a cake or muffin that isn’t overly dense. This muffin combines great sweet and savory pairings, and is a combination of flavors found in an everything bagel with the texture of a muffin or cornbread. I love serving this at a brunch, bringing balance to sweet coffee and fruit.
