Photography is a passion of mine but I do have a life and other interests. I am also passionate about my family, animals, and life in general and yes, sometimes that means some quirky stuff. I wrote a column on Examiner.com for seven years and with their recent closure I've been transferring many of my old article's into the blog.

So here you'll find a little business, a little personal, and a little bit of everything in between. It's all just a bit of a mish-mash here but I hope that you'll enjoy the images I share, what you read, and will return often.

Pico De Gallo

Pico De Gallo

Pico De Gallo

  • 1 can diced tomatoes (drained well)

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 2 cloves of finely diced fresh garlic cloves

  • 6-8 sprigs of diced fresh cilantro

  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • Juice of half a fresh small lime

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for one hour, stirring occasionally.


Traditionally this recipe would call for green onions, fresh jalapeño, and fresh tomatoes. All are great but you cook with what you have available, and for this recipe, my named ingredients were what I had. Play with the recipe and find your favorite combination.

Note:
Throw this in with a few cups of white rice cooked with chili powder, cumin, and green pepper and you'll have some seriously tasty Spanish Rice.
