A Little About Me

New York, New York
As a newly married woman, it has become my mission in life to learn how to cook. Gone are the days of picking up sushi and ordering curries. In order to jump-start my education, I enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education's Fine Cooking I course where I learned the basics, from roasting to boiling to mousse-making (ok, maybe not that basic)! I've attempted to replicate some recipes - somewhat successfully- and create a few of my own. This blog is for friends and foodies and is intended to document my cooking adventures (and occasional fiascoes). Enjoy the pictures and bon appetite!

Super Simple Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

I was recently watching the Food Network and saw Nadia G preparing all the components for her fancy steak dinner.  The component that really caught my eye were the colorful roasted cherry tomatoes sitting alongside the meat. They were so simple but looked so pretty, I just had to buy some tomatoes that afternoon. What made this recipe so special was the addition of brown sugar and oregano. You can use this recipe whether you're looking for something to serve alongside a steak, toss into a salad or just eat plain... I ended up doing all! 

2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
4 cloves garlic, smashed
large pinch of oregano
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp brown sugar

This recipe is so simple, just toss all the ingredients together and bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes! Yum!
