Tomato Tarte Tatin

Tomato Tarte Tatin

A tart tatin is always a gorgeous pastry to look at, no matter what kind of fruit you use to make it. I’ve made them using apples, peaches and even pineapples before.

Individual Cherry Tomato Crisps

Individual Cherry Tomato Crisps

I eat a lot of tomatoes during the summer, slicing up large heirlooms to make BLTs and popping sweet cherry tomatoes into my mouth by the handful.  They’re so good when they’re fresh, that I often don’t cook them before serving them, but I love roasted tomatoes and do manage to set enough aside from time to time to transform them into other delicious summer dishes.

Olive Oil Mayonnaise

Olive Oil Mayonnaise
