Roasted Tomato Sauce

Hi There!  Today I made a simple, yet delicious tomato sauce so I thought some of you with an abundance of tomatoes on your hands might want to try this.  I did not really invent it.  I read a bunch of recipes online and went from there.



  • Tomatoes, halved and quartered depending on size (I didn’t count them, I put one baking sheet and another dish equivalent to about half a baking sheet in the oven)
  • One vidalia onion, cut into cubes
  • 6 big cloves garlic, halved
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Post Cooking, Pre- Blending

I put everything in a single layer on a baking sheet and cooked it at 300 degrees for 2 hours.  Then, I put it all in a bowl and used my immersion blender to puree. I didn’t bother taking the skins off because that’s just too tedious for me and I don’t mind them.  However if you are going to try this and you mind skins, peel them off before you puree.

Post Blending

It’s delicious.  If I make it again, I might add some crushed red pepper flakes to make a spicy version.  If you try it, let me know how it comes out.

January 6th- Yummy Green Beans

Green beans, or string beans, are a veggie that I love. However, I only love them fresh and can't even gag them down out of a can. I feel the same way about canned asparagus. Who eats that? Besides my mom.... Hi Mom! Anyway, this is one of my favorite ways to cook these little rock stars. Cut the ends off, put them on some foil so you can make a pouch, add some lemon slices, and fresh ground salt and pepper. Then make into a foil pouch and cook at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Still slightly crunchy. Simple, easy, delicous.
