A Taste of Summer: Fresh Tomatoes

Fresh, homegrown tomatoes are one of my favorite summer treats.  A bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich on homemade bread simply can't be beat. There are hundreds of alternatives using cheese, herbs or other additions, but one ingredient that can't be replaced is the tomato.  Nothing tastes the same as a fresh tomato on a sandwich.  

I've written an article,  the first in a series I'm calling A Taste of Summer, on tomatoes. I've included simple, easy recipes and tips on choosing and storing fresh tomatoes.  I think you'll enjoy these recipes:

For those curious as to how my grandson is doing, I have a picture to share of my youngest daughter Emily and the newest addition to our family.  He is almost 6 months old now, and Aunt Emily is one of his favorite people. They both love summer, and laying in the grass:)
