Rooftop Salsa

Nothing says “summer’s here!” quite like sitting in the backyard, bathing suit on, skin browning, beer in hand, snacking on a big bowl of tortilla chips dipped in fresh salsa. In my opinion, that mixture of fresh tomatoes, spicy jalapeño and bright cilantro left to marinate for a good, long while in citrus juice is just the thing to ring in the coming season. On the eve of Memorial Day, with June, July, and August firmly planted on the warm weather horizon, there will always be a jar in my fridge.

Tata’s Famous Hot Salsa and Chorizo

If nothing else, my Tata, Henry, is a crowd pleaser. He absolutely loves when people come over to the house he has shared with my Nana for over 50 years.

My First Spanish Tortilla

I can’t recall the name of the restaurant where I ate my first Spanish tortilla. I can’t tell you what street I was on or even what Madrid neighborhood I was in. I can tell you I was on a beautiful, tree-lined avenue where fallen blossoms twirled and danced in the warm, May breeze.

A Spanish Tortilla is an easy breakfast or brunch dish you most likely can make from the items in your pantry. Because of its simplicity, it is important to use fresh potatoes, eggs and onions, as well as good quality olive oil. Make sure to taste your potatoes to make sure they are seasoned properly before adding the beaten eggs.
