(Better Than) Restaurant Salsa

I don't know about you, but everyone in my house loves salsa. I've been making it for years and fine tuning my recipe. It's finally blog worthy!



(Better Than) Restaurant Salsa

1 28 ounce can of San Marzano peeled tomatoes
1 14.5 ounce can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 jalapeƱo, seeded, de-ribbed and chopped
1 bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 red onion, roughly chopped
1 lime, juiced
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cumin

Pulsa all ingredients in a blender. Adjust seasonings if needed (if too acidic for your taste, add another teaspoon of sugar).

Serve or chill and serve. It only gets better as it sits.

Buttery Cheese Stuffed Rolls



My kids love cheesy bread. Like, really love it. They also really love crescents (you know, when I'm not making my easy and oh so delicious yeast rolls). In a stroke of genius, I decided to combine the two.

Make these with...well, whatever you're having tonight. ;-) 



Buttery Cheese Stuffed Rolls
Yield: 8 rolls

1 can of crescent rolls (I like the buttery version)
1/2 a stick of unsalted butter
4 mozzarella string cheese sticks
1 clove of garlic (optional)

Preheat oven to package directed temp. 

Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Unfold crescents. Melt butter with un-chopped garlic clove in the microwave. Use a pastry brush to spread a little of the butter onto each crescent. 

Slice cheese sticks in half and place one piece on each crescent. Roll up rolls, tucking the ends in so they cover the cheese completely.  Brush with butter. 

Bake as directed on roll package.
