Juana's Salsa

October 03, 2009 at 11:35 AM | categories: recipes | View Comments

This is a classic tomatillo salsa. Don't be afraid to add a little water: if you skip that, it can set up like cement.
  • 10 dried japanese chiles
  • 15 tomatillos
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Husk and rinse tomatillos, and simmer in a medium saucepan filled with water. Toast the chiles in a dry skillet until they become aromatic, tossing occasionally. Rinse the chiles and put them in a blender with the garlic and salt, adding just enough water to cover. Puree, then add the tomatillos and blend again, adding more water if the salsa is too thick.

Chill and serve. It's good with chips, or tamales, or tacos, or a spoon.

AlbumMixer 1.2 Now Available - Shuffle those Albums (and playlists and genres)

October 01, 2009 at 08:03 PM | categories: iOS | View Comments

AlbumMixer 1.2 is now available. This update includes features that users have requested: a "next album" button, and the genre-based shuffle, and playlist-based shuffle. The UI is also much nicer, IMO. And the basic album shuffle still works, too.

Besides all that, this update includes a change in the official app name to "AlbumMixer - Shuffle by Album". Just a few minutes after that change went live, app store searches for "album shuffle" began to show AlbumMixer as the third match (finally!). So there's a lesson here for iPhone developers: if your keywords might be confused with an existing app, embed them in your application name.
