I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Amazing Marinated Tomatoes

If you're like me your garden tomatoes are coming in fast and furious right now. You'll love this recipe for it's simplicity and amazing taste!
2 large tomatoes
1/4 cup light olive oil
2 tbsps red wine vinegar
1 tbsp chopped onion
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsps fresh parsley, chopped
2 tsps fresh basil, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of black pepper
1/4 tsp lemon zest
parsley and basil to garnish
So here it is...slice the tomatoes 1/2" thick, lay out in a dish trying not to overlap them. Whisk the rest of the ingredients together and pour over the tomatoes. That's it!
Let them sit at room temperature for 2-3 hours. Or you could refrigerate them overnight then return to room temperature before serving.
Aren't they gorgeous served alongside my moussaka?
