So Simple Salsa
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, loosely packed
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
Peel the garlic. Turn on a blender or food processor and drop the garlic onto the moving blade. Process until finely chopped. Add the cilantro and pulse to chop fine. Squeeze the juice from the lime half into the blender. Add the tomatoes and pulse 2 or 3 times for chunky salsa or blend until smooth, about 15 seconds. Serve at once or refrigerate until ready to serve

What you're saying..
I started reading Desperation Dinners along about the time I became a "stay-at-home" mom (what an oxymoron!) and needed both intellectual stimulation and something different - ANYTHING different - for dinner.
In those early days, I cooked strictly by the rule book, no deviations. But over the years, you two have given me the confidence to try rotini instead of penne, to substitute, experiment, become confident. Thank you!!
Honestly - - all three of my DD books are stained, tattered, splattered, and loved. I've given DD as gifts to new moms, to new wives, and to young friends just out of college. Can't think of a more practical, useful present.
I appreciate all the recipes, but really like the bulk-cooking ideas.
Thanks for everything!!
