Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes


I first made these stuffed tomatoes for a brunch, and they were a huge hit. It's the kind of dish that if you serve it to a crowd, nearly everyone demands the recipe before they leave. I love it because it's so affordable and fairly easy to make, and of course because it's so delicious! It's a perfect little appetizer for entertaining.



INGREDIENTS
  • 4oz grated Parmesan
  • 2.25 oz black olives
  • a few tbs olive oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 2 cartons of fresh cherry tomatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Use a pairing knife to hollow out the tomatoes (on the end opposite of the stem side). They'll naturally stand up if you place them stem-side down.  

2. Mince the olives then combine all of the ingredients. Whenever I make a dish like this with filling and Italian flavors, I love to premix the filling a day or so in advance and keep it in the fridge until the day of the event. All of the flavors seem to meld together and get nice and fragrant. 

3. It's a little tricky to fill small cherry tomatoes. I used a small spoon and the curved part of my pairing knife to smash the filling down into the tomatoes. Enjoy!
