Doesn’t this make you want to grab a chip and dig in?

I am so excited to be doing my very first blog post on my new food blog! I absolutely love cooking, and this will be a great way to share my favorite recipes {along with remembering everything I cook}. I have been wanting to start Tastes Lovely for a long time, but wanted to wait until I got the design and website just right. I’m looking forward to an exciting new adventure in cooking and photographing food. Hope you all enjoy!

Pico de Gallo Ingredients

What better recipe to start off with than salsa?! It is one of my favorite snacks, and is the best part of going out for Mexican food. I’ve been known to polish off an entire basket of chips and salsa on my own, sometimes even two. Embarrassing? No. It’s that good.

Pico de Gallo 2

Talk about an easy recipe. Just 5 ingredients: tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime juice. Chop, chop, chop, throw it all in a bowl, season with salt, let sit for 30 minutes, and you have fresh, delicious salsa. Don’t forget the tortilla chips!

Chopping Tomatoes, Pico de Gallo Prep

This year I planted 9 tomato plants in my garden. Soon I’ll have more tomatoes than I know what to do with! This is a great way to use them up, and it keeps for at least a week in the fridge.
