as promised, i thought i'd share a little bit about how good my coauthor is with ingredients. take these gorgeous-looking and yummy-tasting heirloom tomatoes, for example. once hated, now adored, she arranged these beautifully prepped (by yours truly of course) slices into a delicious caprese-like tart!
with bufala, fresh pesto and everything. not only visually breathtaking to admire, but scrumptious to enjoy. i know i did.
(notice the pears poaching in the background. dessert was just as tasty!)
