• 1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
  • 2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies)
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Onion
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1 whole Jalapeno, Quartered And Sliced Thin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro (more To Taste!)
  • 1/2 whole Lime Juice

Preparation Instructions

Note: this is a very large batch. Recommend using a 12-cup food processor, or you can process the ingredients in batches and then mix everything together in a large mixing bowl.
Combine whole tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro in a blender or food processor. Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you'd like---I do about 10 to 15 pulses. Test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed.
Refrigerate salsa for at least an hour. Serve with tortilla chips or cheese nachos.

Pork & Bok Choy Dumplings

I had a hankering for dumplings one day, and went to my favorite go to recipe. Cabbage & Pork Dumplings. I used Bok Choy because it looked fresh in the market. Whipped um together & steamed them. The dipping sauce is made of garlic, ginger, green onions, red wine vinegar, soy sauce and sugar. Perfection.

Homemade RingDings

Or (if you weren't from the East Coast) as I knew them as a kid, Ding Dongs! I used a scalloped scone cutter, because I only had a huge smooth one . . . so these were tall and ridged. Also used this recipe from Beantown Baker. I found my ganache seemed a little more "sticky" than I would have preferred. Next time I'll cut back on the heavy cream. But otherwise SUPER delicious :)

Saving Your Images

Once you've spend the time, money and effort to take either beautiful professional photos or ones of your own, this is a list of great ways to save your images!  

We hope you enjoy your wedding day photographs for years to come. To ensure that you never loose these images, we recommend you back them up. There are a few ways you can do that including the following. 

Back the images up on your computer or external Hard Drive. Make a folder dedicated to only your wedding images and copy your images from the disk to the folder. 

Copy the disks. Buy multiple Blank Disks and make back up copies of all your images and make sure to store them in different places. 

Online Storages. There are many online photo storages that will store your images for a small fee. Apple, Amazon and Flickr are a few examples.

Printing. A great way to keep your images for a long time (and to enjoy looking at them easily) is getting prints made. We offer a variety of print and book options to keep your images forever.
