Farm Society in Anderson, Indiana

Anderson, Indiana is a small town a little over an hour north of Indianapolis. There’s not a lot to do or see there, however my grandparents lived there for most of my childhood, so I have lots of memories of summers and holidays spent in the town until they decided to move down to our area of the state.

Easy Restaurant Style Salsa

I do not like salsa from a jar and believe me, I’ve tried several different kinds and pretty much find it inedible. Fresh, restaurant style salsa is where it’s at and it’s taken me several years to perfect my own recipe, which I modeled after my favorite Mexican restaurant Los Bravos.
