Oven Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

We’re sitting here in the Twin Cities just waiting to get slammed by a blizzard, and we’re not alone. There’s a whole swath across the upper Midwest. I keep checking the weather but it’s so bright and sunny it’s easy to be in denial. Maybe they’re exaggerating. Maybe we’ll get missed! One thing I do know? We’re having these Oven Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & they’re like a breath of sunshine no matter what the weather and what the time of year.

Oh my gosh is your kitchen looking like mine as the days count down to Christmas? Bags of chocolate chips, flour everywhere, rolling pins and candies and sugar, oh my! And here it is December 20th & I am starting to realize that I just might not accomplish everything I’ve been hoping to before the big day. Mostly because I keep adding things, lol! But I want to back away from the baking (that should be a Meme, shouldn’t it?) and share out this perfect little accompaniment to just about any holiday meal, Spicy Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce.

African Tomato & Onion Salad

African Tomato & Onion Salad

Awhile back, I put out a recipe for my new fave burger, Feta Stuffed Harissa Sliders. Those are such juicy, fun, zippy burgers; check them out if you didn’t see them when I posted them. Since I used Harissa in those burgers, a North African condiment of different peppers, I thought it would be fun to find something from Africa to go along with the burgers. So here it is, African Tomato & Onion Salad.

Grape Jelly Barbecue Sauce

Grape Jelly Barbecue Sauce, Updated

If you grew up in the Midwest like I did, or maybe just in the States, it stands to reason you might be familiar with Grape Jelly Barbecue Sauce. It’s the base sauce for all those classic barbecue type meatballs that are served out of slow cookers at so many parties, potlucks, and get-togethers. They’re just about ubiquitous, and like many simple recipes are either loved or reviled.
