The Best Fresh Tomato Salsa
I live in Mexico and have quite a few recipes from my friends here. This salsa is okay, but I prefer mine, which IMO, is more authentic. The quantities are really unimportant as they depend on taste, and every Mexican housewife varies the recipe a bit 2-3 Seeded and coarsely chopped plum tomatoes 3 coarsely chopped green onions juice of 1 lime 2 T chopped cilantro finely diced garlic (amount according to taste, I use 2 lge cloves) 1 jalapeno chopped salt to taste Let sit for a while, so flavors meld pinch of sugar

Fajita Seasoning
I make something very similar, almost the same really, but I add powdered chicken broth. I use this as a base for seasoning almost everything I make: Add a little herbage, basil, oregano, etc and you can adapt it to chicken fish, almost anything. It's very similar to Emeril's "essence" and that gives you a clue as to where he got it.

Chef John's Empty Mayo Jar Dressing
Great way to use up what is basically something unusable. One reviewer stated they didn't know what herbs de provence was, and asked for "normal ingredients". This is what's wrong with society today
