Southern Comfort

This is one of my favorite simple desserts. It's a traditional southern recipe that was given to me decades ago. It's not fancy, or elegant, or complicated. In fact, it's the antithesis of those things.

Once again I am inspired by something I saw on a menu, though this time I didn't order it.

You Say Tomato, I Say Tonnato

Readers, meet Frank from the blog, Memorie di Angelina. Frank is fairly new to my blogosphere, but he has been posting wonderful recipes since 2009, and we clicked immediately over our mutual love and respect of authentic Italian food. Recently, he reposted his Tomato Tonnato recipe and I knew right away that it would be on our table within days.
