Pomegranate Avocado Salsa

This Pomegranate Avocado Salsa is my favorite appetizer to make during the Christmas season. I was inspired by a recipe I saw many years ago in Cooking Light magazine, and it has been my “go to” since. My first attraction was the colors of all the ingredients and how I thought together they would make an attractive and colorful addition to any table!  And I knew the flavors together would be a Gr8 combo. The first time I…

Layered Crab Dip

I never tire of this easy recipe that is the perfect party appetizer.

I love that the shrimp is roasted instead of boiled.  The recipe calls for 2 pounds of shrimp but make as much as you want because you’ll have plenty of cocktail sauce made from the recipe below…

Fresh Salsa Fresca!

When seated at your favorite Cantina, aren’t you anxious for that basket of tortilla chips and bowl of salsa? I know I am! And when our girls were little we’d always tell them, “Don’t fill up on the chips and salsa, you’ll spoil your dinner.” Well clearly I need to practice what I preach because every time, I end up having a to-go box with my leftovers! If you…
