“Awfully Good Beans”

Yep, that’s really the name! This has always been the perfect side dish at our neighborhood block parties. The hint of marjoram and tang of tomatoes meld together perfectly. It’s a hearty dish that we sometimes have as a main course during one of our “not having meat tonight” meals! With a little of the bean “liquor,” as they call it in the south, sopped up with a piece of crusty french…

Tasty Tomato Onion Tart

Here I am again at my happy place, Manassero Farms, to buy my dad and me some of the last strawberries of the season.

This one was one of those gadgets I…

When I moved to the left coast after college I missed those Sunday suppers. One day, I called Giggi and she patiently walked me through her secret formulas for my favorite dishes.
