I am new to watching your TV program, and now DVD it, so I won’t miss a single show. I have made salsa for years, but have never been able to make a really delicious Pico di Gallo, until now. My husband and I both love it. It tastes as good, if not better than the salsa we have eaten in Mexico many times. Muchas Gracias, my friend.

My pleasure!

Can y put more videos please!

Pati – I really enjoy your show and your cheerful enthusiasm for the food you are preparing and your wonderful family. I have written WYES New Orleans and asked them to carry you again, and I really enjoy your cookbook.
