Roasted Tomatoes

I’ve had roasted tomatoes on my mind, specifically plum tomatoes. First I enjoyed them with brunches at The Blue Rooster Bakery & Cafe in Cranbury.  Then I saw a recipe in Canal House Cooking.  So I’ve been playing around with different versions at home and they are very simple and handy to have on hand (and you can freeze them … Continue reading
