Oven Roasted Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes

Oven Roasted Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes

My little cherry tomato plant has been a bit stingy, probably because I just put it in a big pot and kind of left in the northeast corner of my back steps for the first half of its miserable existence. Then I tossed it out where there’s some good southern exposure. It was a shock for him. But finally, he adjusted to the August heat and started putting out! So I decided to make Oven Roasted Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes.

Horiatiki Greek Salad

Horiatiki Greek Salad

I’m betting you’ve had Horiatiki Greek Salad before even if you don’t know what the heck Horiatiki is! It’s just the Greek name for that cucumber tomato salad that’s so ubiquitous (look at me with all the big words, today!) all over the United States. And in Greece, too, from what I understand, where it originated.

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.

Grilled Vegetables with Tonkatsu Sauce

Good news! I was just outside and there was a cool wind! By cooler, I mean cool (85 degrees F) compared to what we’ve had. I think that nasty old heat dome is passing by! I wanted to throw up my arms and dance. And maybe I did, just a little. 🙂 I was like Rose in The Titanic. Well, older, chunkier and without Leanardo DiCaprio…or the ship. Ok, so I was just an old lady smiling into the breeze. 🙂titanic-rose-jpg_152711

Pan Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Pasta (or without)

One of my favorite recipes is really a “non” recipe. Too simple, really, to even be written down! Pan Roasted Cherry Tomatoes are one of my favorite sides, about 10 minutes to make and delicious. They’re great in the summer when cherry tomatoes are at their peak, and nearly as good during the winter months. Cherry tomatoes pack a ton of flavor, even off-season.
