Coffee Cakes

Obviously, I need to make more coffee cakes! Here are some of my faves.

In the United States, coffee cake generally refers to a sweet cake intended to be eaten with coffee or tea (like tea cake). Coffee cakes, as an accompaniment for coffee, are often single layer, flavored with either fruit or cinnamon, and leavened with either baking soda (or baking powder), which results in a more cake-like texture, or yeast, which results in a more bread-like texture.

Simple Cherry Tomato Salad

My folks love tomatoes. Any tomatoes. Me, I’m a sucker for a fresh garden tomato and otherwise they leave me cold. So when I come across tomatoes that could use a little help, I jazz them up a bit. Not that these lovelies in the photos needed any help, mind you.
