Homemade Tomato Basil Soup


Homemade Tomato Basil Soup | Cooking on the Front Burner

Today's recipe is courtesy of our local Farmer's Market. On Saturday I grabbed my market bag and had a wonderful time stopping at different vendors getting what I needed for this Tomato Basil Soup.  I like to meander around with coffee in hand, enjoy the sights and especially the smells!  By the time I was done, I had a bag full of roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, garlic, an onion bigger than a softball (for only $1),  basil and a red pepper.  The ride home provided a nice basil aroma (I would take that any day over the 'new' car smell!)

How is your summer going?  Getting to do all you want?  Sun, fun, vacationing, relaxing, etc.?  It's the most wonderful time of the year, right (not ready for Christmas yet!)  We've been super busy hence the lack of blog posts.  I can't believe this is only the 3rd recipe this month but I think it was worth the wait.  This Arugula Quinoa Salad with Fresh Cherries has it all and on the healthier side too!  So enjoy what's left of summer and when you are looking for a quick and tasty salad, you've come to the right spot!

Fresh Cherry Crisp


Fresh Cherry Crisp a la mode | Cooking on the Front Burner

I love this time of year when cherries are available!  It reminds me when I was a kid and we would go to my grandmother's house and go "down the yard" and pick cherries at the neighbors house.  I was able to pick the low lying ones and my uncles would place ladders against the tree to get the majority.  My tongue would be bright red by the end of the afternoon and hopefully I didn't get a stomach ache!  In memory of those great times, I created this fresh cherry crisp for you to enjoy.

Before we get this party started, I'm announcing this will be my last night with BOTW.  The party will still continue with the other fab gals.  I've enjoyed co-hosting for over a year but feel it's time to move on with other busy stuff I have going on.  Seeing your fun projects and wonderful recipes have definitely been the highlight of my week.  I'll still be blogging and posting 2-3 new recipes a week and I know what party I'll be linking them up to!  Be sure next week to link up with either Cindy, Sheryl, Amy or Ginnie.  Now onto the party and features.
