About Me

I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

Oven Roasted Tomatoes

They where just some leftover tomatoes from my last blog post.  Not the luscious summer beauties but nice cooking substitutes probably grown in a hot house.  Not good enough for my salads, so I decided to use a simple technique to turn them into something extraordinary.  Oven roasting at 200 degrees  for  6 hours on parchment paper with just salt, pepper and a drizzle of Georgia olive oil produced an intense sweetness I never suspected from these rather bland tomatoes. After taking them out of the oven I sprinkled them with a little grated Parmesan for a delicious finish.  They are good enough to stand on their own on any plate or garnish a salad.  Wrapped in prosciutto they make a great little pick up bite.
