Tomato Pie

This recipe lends itself to estimates. Handfuls of this, handfuls of that. I measured, but you could eyeball it and it would still work out.

Peach Bruschetta with Ricotta and Prosciutto

Both the bread and the peaches are grilled on a panini press, so this appetizer comes together quickly.

Sunburst Lemon Bars

Spring demands lemon bars, those tart, portable treats perfect for a picnic or evening tea on the terrace. Sadly, too many lemon bars are, to borrow a term from Cher (the one from Clueless, of course), “Monets”: alluring from afar, but a “big old mess” once you get close. Even more disturbing, many lemon bars are (again like Monets) more expensive than they should be. Bright yellow and shiny, flaws hidden by a fine layer […]
