I love it when I can take my own recipe and make it even easier!

I have been in tomato heaven. For the first couple weeks I did nothing with them but sprinkle on a little sea salt and enjoy the juicy ripeness of sun warmed, fresh tomatoes straight from the garden – juices running down my arm, a smile on my face. Now that I have grown accustomed to
