Fresh Tomato Salsa

Fresh Tomato Salsa by Phyllis Munro

I love making fresh salsa! This is great served with chips, taco's I made a batch this evening to serve with my Huevos Rancheros! This salsa is a snap to make if you purchase that handy dandy chopper I was talking about in an earlier post. You can see by the photo everything is evenly chopped. I slice my tomatoes and then pop the…

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes

Easy Pan Fried Tomatoes by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is incredibly easy and really tasty. We're healthy eaters, so frying tomatoes isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But you have got to taste these. Amazing! Disclosure: we used fresh tomatoes from our garden that were really flavorful. You may not get the same results with less flavorful tomatoes. We served with…

Chili Sauce

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest. The perky piquant sauce can compliment many classic recipes like meatballs, meatloaf, cutlets, chops, tenders, eggs, potatoes, etc. This recipe is from Ball Blue Book of Canning (2010) and is what I’d deem a standard chili sauce for a wide variety of family uses. It is not…

This recipe has been handed down for many years in my family. Delicious Italian soup! I tend to add ingredients without measuring so I am giving the best estimates on ingredient measurements.

Perfectly simple BBQ sauce recipe we use in competition BBQ contests. You don't need a complex list of ingredients to have a great sauce... you just need the right ingredients that focus on complimenting the flavor of the meat instead of covering it up.

Salsa de Chile Pequin

Salsa de Chile Pequin by Kathleen is Cooking in Mexico

This is an authentic Mexican salsa, all the more interesting because of its chunky style. Piquin chiles are very small, but very hot, with a smoky, citrusy flavor. If you can't find piquines, substitute any fresh, hot chile. This is an easy salsa to make with few ingredients. The techniques of toasting the tomato and chiles and…

Stewed Tomatoes

Stewed Tomatoes by J. Gino Genovesi

Canning came about during the Napoleonic Wars, when the demand for a cheap and effective way to preserve food in large amounts in order to feed the troops.

Makes about 6 (16 oz) pints or 12 (8 oz) half pints (I double this recipe to make 7 quarts, it usually makes a little more so I have about 5 pint jars ready in case!) **note: When I make quarts, I boil for 30 minutes.

This is a copy-cat recipe I found here at Meemo's Kitchen. It is the Tangy Tomato Dressing from Outback Steakhouse. Although I am not a regular at Outback I have been there enough to know it is my favorite dressing there. This recipe is super easy to make and you will be thrilled with the results. :) I also used the dressing on some…

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI by Linda Tay Esposito

I first tasted Aushak at the Salang Pass restaurant in Fremont, a city where a lot of Afghan immigrants have settled. Aushak is proof that Marco Polo made his way through that part of the world (I mean through the Hindu Kush, not Fremont!) enroute back from China. Aushak is traditionally made with beef - it's the Afghan version of…

Crunchy Tomato Salad with Pea Sprouts by Blackswan

This was the 13-Course BBQ Menu for my party, and the tomato salad was one of the appetizers. Topped with Chopped Onions and drenched in a Japanese Sesame Dressing, this is a no-fuss recipe and extremely refreshing.
