Oh my goodness yum

Hey all. Thought I'd share a mouth-watering dish with y'all.

Stuffed tomatoes, from the Wednesday Chef! Check them out--delicious! I'm dying to try them out, maybe with some of the tasty Creole tomatoes that you can get around here. I can't imagine a better way to spend an end-of-summer afternoon on the back porch!

By the by, I found a link to this recipe via smitten kitchen, one of my favorite food blogs EVER. I've made a few of her things and they always turn out splendidly, not to mention the fact that she fills her recipes with gorgeous food photos. It took me a while to branch out to online cooks again after the end of my love affair with Mark Bittman (the Minimalist) of New York Times fame. But after four or five complete failures, I had to admit that he and I were just headed in different directions as far as the kitchen is concerned. Some of you may have heard about the Octopus Incident:

There was also an unfortunate experiment involving granola. Ugh. But even though I was traumatized, I decided to jump back in the water, and I'm thrilled that I did. Seriously, try her chicken marsala. Fantastic.

Anyway, even though it's soggy outside and all mosquito-y, I'm itching to sit on the porch, sip some wine, and stuff myself with bruschetta. Hope everyone's having a lovely evening!

I never had any luck with Mark Bittman, either. Always so good on paper, but so bad in reality.
