A new Coat for Mommy and Baby

A friend of mine asked if I could create a coat for her that she could wear when using her Ergobaby carrier. This is what we came up with (with some help from my mom). It can be used when carrying her baby front or back. This is an exciting new venture!! Purchase your own coat from my store here...

Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

This year I planted 6 cherry tomato plants.  I'm not sure what I was thinking....Needless to say, I had to get pretty creative in order to use them up.  I found an awesome yellow tomato sauce recipe and a large portion of my yellow cherries went to that (will share the canning recipe later).  For a quick and easy yet delicious side, here is a recipe I used frequently.

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

1.  Melt butter.
2.  Saute garlic in butter.
3.  Add basil and tomatoes.
4.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
5.  Cook over medium heat until tomatoes start to "blister."  I shake the pan back and forth to get them evenly cooked on all sides.  

These are great served over steak!  The garlic adds a tremendous flavor!  I sometimes use extra butter and garlic to make more sauce.  This is definitely one of my favorites!
