Spicy Tomato Confit

Spicy Tomato Confit

Cherry tomatoes have to be one of my favourite snack foods. I just love the sweetness of the tomato and they really are adorable. Just little bites of summer.

When I was looking through one of my cookbooks for a new side dish, this recipe appealed to me. Confit Cherry Tomatoes. Now, I am not familiar with confit, in fact, the only time I see this term is when it refers to duck. Since I am not a huge fan of duck, the idea of confit has never really struck me as something I needed to try. But cherry tomatoes, well, I never pass up an opportunity to eat more tomatoes, so I figured it was time the confit made an appearance in our kitchen.

Cabbage Rolls with Tomato Cranberry Sauce

Cabbage Rolls - ready for the oven

I am going to have to admit to you, that I have never made cabbage rolls before. I have enjoyed them on more than one occasion, but I have never attempted to make them myself, till now.

When we were growing up, our Mom would make cabbage rolls a couple of times a year. It was a time consuming task, but we always enjoyed the effort, as there is nothing better than homemade cabbage rolls. Over the years, I have had the frozen variety, but they just don’t compare to homemade.

Tilapia Provençale

Jamie and I had the pleasure this summer of stumbling upon a few used book sales. This is a fabulous way to spend a Saturday morning, with your coffee in hand and browsing through well loved books to discover a hidden gem.

Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

Now that autumn is officially here, it is time to embrace the season and start cooking more comfort foods. I don’t that there is anything more comforting than a great dinner of Spaghetti and Meatballs!

With Jamie and I trying to eat healthy (actually we are just trying to balance out all the carbohydrates that we consume through cookies 😉 ), we don’t eat a lot of pasta. However, this year I have been introduced to the wonderful world of spaghetti squash!

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

I am back with yet another Hummus recipe 🙂  I still can’t believe that I used to buy this pre-made.  It is so easy to make yourself.  I must have thrown hundreds of dollars away on prepared product.  Yikes!

I was in the grocery store, when I saw a jar of oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes.  The idea struck me to make this into a delicious hummus, and to incorporate some of the oil from the jar of tomatoes into the mix.

Stuffed Tomatoes

Here is another creation inspired by the local Farmers Market. I can’t help but be excited when I see farm fresh field tomatoes. They are so flavourful and delicious. I really could eat them just like an apple, but I think that might get a bit messy 🙂

Jamie and I had purchased some beautiful looking tomatoes and we were looking for another way to use them. Then Jamie came up with the amazing idea of stuffing the tomatoes! I have never done that before. I have heard of stuffed peppers, but never a stuffed tomato. I wasn’t sure if the delicate flesh of the tomato would stand up to being hollowed out, stuffed and baked, but I was willing to try it out.

Salsa Fresca

Jamie and I were at the Farmers Market this past weekend, and my eyes went wide when I saw that farm fresh field tomatoes were available.  I love tomatoes, and when they are in season, I can’t stop myself from indulging in a large variety of tomato treats;
