Classic Homemade Focaccia

There are many things I enjoyed about working in an Italian restaurant in high school and college. Chowing down on leftover focaccia after service was over was one of those things. Focaccia is one of my favorite breads because of it’s unique texture. It’s buttery and crisp on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle. The soft, spongey center makes it perfect for dipping in seasoned olive oil–the perfect appetizer for any Italian meal.

Easy Roasted Tomato Salsa

Probably within my top 5 favorite things about summer is eating fresh tomatoes. Like, grown from the garden, bursting with flavor tomatoes. Especially cherry tomatoes. Man, I eat those things like candy. Often in the summertime, I have an abundance of tomatoes sitting on my countertop. Sometimes more than I can go through before they start letting me know they’re on their way outta here. What to do then? Make salsa, of course!
