Tasty Tuesday

Looking for an easy and tasty appetizer to impress not only your taste buds but your family and friends?

Well, you are reading the right post then, today I am sharing a delicious and super easy "Cranberry Salsa and Cream Cheese"recipe that I am so sure you and those around you would love (and perhaps love you after that!).

Ingredients:

1 12oz Fresh Cranberries
1/4 cup of green onions (chopped)
1/4 cup of cilantro (chopped)
1 small jalapeno (chopped without seeds- use gloves or plastic bags in our hands so you don't get them burned)
1 1/4 cups of sugar
2 Tbsp of lemon juice
2 8oz cream cheese packs

Put cranberries in food processor (or blender; if using this method make sure to move the cranberries constantly inside the blender with a wood spoon until they are all chopped- careful not to chop the wood spoon as well- just be patient!).

Once Cranberries are all chopped mix them with the rest of the ingredients (but cream cheese), mix well and refrigerate covered for at least 4 hours (or more), the more you leave it, the better cranberries will absorb the sugar.

When the salsa is ready take the cream cheese out of the fridge so it can get softer then use a plate to spread the cream cheese and then put the "salsa" on top of it, serve with crackers or wheat thins and enjoy!!!!

In another note, last night film festival was really good, very interesting little films were featured.

I participated on the Lobster lotto and won a $25 dollars gift certificate to one my favorite kitchen stores on the island, 2 dives with gear and scooter included and also a lunch at a local restaurant, yummy!




My favorite part (besides winning some prizes) was the presentation by Michelle and Howard Hall who is a couple of award winning Natural history photographers and filmmakers that are world renowned for their underwater IMAX films like Into the Deep, Island of Sharks and Deep Sea 3D, his films are amazing!

Here's one of the short films that they shared last night, it's less than 5min long and very worth watching


Isn't that footage amazing and mesmerizing? Well, if you would like to watch even more amazing shorts, please visit Howard's website at www.howardhall.com
