Yeah, I know. I’ve been away for a while. BUT I can explain. For real this time though. Remember I told you I was going to Paris in May? Welllll, we got ENGAGED while we were there! So everything has been crazy since then. We’ve been working on wedding planning (the hotel is a nightmare to say the least, but everything else is going fine…) and my job has picked up speed too, so between both of these obligations, things have been pretty busy. So this is why I’ve been away. Don’t get me wrong - I’ve been cooking. I’ve been doing a LOT of cooking, actually. I’ve been making recipes that are new to me, as well as recipes that are familiar to me.
All of this got me thinking, actually. I’ve always meant to go back to my old recipes and refresh the pictures, and update the actual ingredients/instructions as necessary. My blog has been around since 2008 (WHAT?!?!?) so you can imagine that many of my old posts could use a little refreshing, if you want to put it mildly. Thus, I am super excited to re-post this revisited recipe - Tomatillo Salsa!
I actually got this recipe from one of my friends down in the Texas area. He made it for me when I was visiting Austin years ago and I basically required him to ‘fess up this entire recipe stat. This salsa is a tasty dip for tortilla chips, or can be drizzled over pretty much anything in sight to amp up the flavor. Do not underestimate this condiment. I am so glad that I made it again, as I hadn’t given it much thought until recently. If you’re interested in the original THK recipe that I posted back in 2011 (omg, I was basically a child then), here you go!
One more thing - As I ease my way back into this quiet blog and begin posting again, please be patient with me. I’ll probably be a bit sporadic for a while, until things begin to settle down in my life. Thank you!!!
