    Tomato season always cheers me up! I avoid the bland, under ripened tomatoes that are available in the winter, and save myself for the sweet, flavourful tomatoes of summer. One of my favourite things to make with tomatoes is bruschetta. With ripe and juicy tomatoes, a homemade sourdough bread and a high quality olive oil […] Read more »
