Foodie Friday: How About Those Tomatoes? Recipes & More


{ Via: Williams Sonoma }

Tomato, tomahto. However you say it, they are Summer's gift to us all. I have noticed that every week, the bounty is getting sweeter and juicier. Besides their taste, tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, which, like lycopene, is linked to reducing the risk of heart disease. Good for you and good tasting too? That's a win win in my book. Get healthy and be inspired with some of the best tomato recipes ever!
