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!

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!

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest.

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…

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.

Sauteed Zucchini in Homemade Tomato Sauce

Sauteed Zucchini in Homemade Tomato Sauce by Denise Sherin

I love homemade tomato sauce, it's so much better than jarred sauce. As a summer side dish I add sauteed zucchini, it's so yummy. I recently served it as a side with baked cod and we wound up putting it right over the fish it was terrific!
