New obsession. Slow-roasting. Garlic. Tomatoes. Frankly, anything we can get our hands on.

Surprise! I do in fact, turn on my stove every once & a while. Figured I’d take a break from tales of restaurant gluttony. And regale you with tales in the kitchen.

FYI: Best smell in the world is garlic roasting. Someone should really make a candle for it…imagine? L would probably kill me.

Recipe (almost) diligently followed from “Cooking for Friends”.


tomatoes: 8-10 plum or 2 cups cherry tomatoes
extra-virgin olive oil: about 1/4 cup
sugar: about 1 tsp
garlic: 2 cloves, thinly sliced
sea salt & ground pepper

serves 4-6


Preheat oven to 300F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet. Arrange tomatoes, cut side up, on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with sugar, garlic and generous amounts of salt and pepper. Roast tomatoes until deep red and wrinkled, 2-21/2 hours for medium or plum tomatoes and 1 hour for cherry tomatoes.

Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet. Serve warm or at room temperature.
