Y'all this is the easiest recipe, and it's kind of healthy (ha, not really... but, there are apples!) I brought it to a party last week, and everyone asked for the recipe, so I figured I would post it on the blog! This is the perfect dish to bring to a holiday party -...

We have been growing tomatoes in our garden for the last 4 years - some years our harvest is better than others, but no matter what there's always a time when we have more tomatoes than we know what to do with! This is my favorite recipe to use up some of those garden...
