asparagus ricotta tart with fried tomato skins

As summer comes to an end I’m vowing not to mourn the loss of another season gone too quickly but rather embrace the change of pace of autumn dishes. That being said, here’s a recipe with one last nod to bikini weather. While asparagus’ season is short lived (lasting only a month or so in March to April), it’s bright green stalks and leafy tips always remind me of summer. Crisp tomato skins give the feeling of bacon while still remaining figure friendly. Here’s my end of summer Asparagus Ricotta Tart with Fried Tomato Skins.

Tomato Tartine’s: A Happy Experiment for Pizza Lovers!

Summer is the season for fresh garden vegetables and after three years, we have fiiiiiinally perfected the art of the patio tomato. With an abundance growing on our porch (with the exception of one or two sampled by our smallest dog), it won’t be long before we’re stocked with sauce. But how else can we enjoy these tasty fruits (yes, a tomato is a fruit!) other than stacked with basil and mozzarella or tossed with balsamic for bruschetta? This great recipe for Tomato Tartine’s can be enjoyed any season and makes an impressive dish with little effort!
