Easy Rustic Tomato & Caramelized Onion Galette

This easy & rustic tomato galette is just the kind of thing that is so simple it's sophisticated. It takes minutes to assemble but you'll want to allow time to roast those tomatoes.

We’re finally getting some cool days and that means the tomatoes in our little garden will be slowing down. I snuck a few to make this very easy Rustic Tomato & Cararmelized Onion Galette.

Thai Chicken Wings

Thai Chicken Wings - The BEST wings I've ever had. Not only is the flavor out of this world, but the method makes such a good baked wing. That's something I didn't think was possible before.

So I’m not usually a huge fan of chicken wings, but my son is. Wow, can he put them down. This is a recipe that changed my mind, and I can’t wait to serve them to Kraig. Thai inspired Chicken Wings.

Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Pickled Peppers

Sweet & Hot Pickled Jalapenos - easy and no processing needed!

I love summer when the living is easy…gardening, grilling and maybe even a little light canning. I’m not about putting up quarts of tomatoes (although you should see how many plants we put in, lol!) but I do tinker with small batches of something special. Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Jalapenos fit the bill & bonus…they go right in the fridge and don’t have to be “processed.”

Oven Roasted Tomato Tart

Oven Roasted Tomato Tart - tomatoes, cheese and caramelized onions.

Have a safe Memorial day, all. If you’re not in the States, Memorial day is the day we honor those who’ve died serving our country. It’s also the day many visit the final resting places of loved ones, go to parades and have get togethers around the grill. Here, Memorial day is really the unofficial “official” start of summer.

Bob Armstrong Chile con Queso

Possibly the best dip or app I've ever eaten. Guac, queso, salsa, sour cream and hiding underneath? A layer of spicy ground beef picadillo!

We seem to be having Cinco de Mayo week rather than just a day here at the Frugal household! Really, the three previous posts are all leading up to this very special recipe, Bob Armstrong’s Chile con Queso. What can I say? This is a masterpiece. I wish I could have gotten this recipe to you before the holiday, but make it anytime or pin it for later!
