If vegetables were ever in a parade, tomatoes would be the marching band, color guard and the festival queen!  This recipe elevates the humble grape tomato to its rightful  position of peerless distinctive taste.  Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this recipe; the burst of flavor these tomatoes leave in your mouth is what sweet dreams are made of.  I’ve divided the recipe into four generous portions – anything less would be a tease.

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
