You can find these brownies all over the Internet (at Patti Cakes, at Angelnina’s Cottage and The Gourmet Project, to name three).  I found it in my Gourmet cookbook. You cannot, […]

Serendipity yields delicious tomato concoction

August 29th, 2008 · 5 Comments · Food preparation, local food, recipes

I had 1 pound of gorgeous little plum tomatoes and no good plan for their use. So I decided to do a mini-version of Joanne’s tomato sauce (go to the comments on the post for the directions). She had 25 pounds of tomatoes to my 1 pound, but I figured the basic approach would work, […]
