And now back to our regularly scheduled program....

After 2 amazing weeks - wedding + honeymoon included, I'm back to providing you the food insight you all crave. Don't worry I spent some serious time documenting our food journey across Italy and will bring you each and every morsel so you don't miss a bite.

But first let's start with some easy summer Sunday tastes - Bruschetta
Simple to make, appealing to the eyes and really doesn't have an enemy in sight!

Red Onion
GOOD Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Toasted Bread

Use fresh tomatoes - if they aren't ripe leave them on your counter for a couple of days to let some of the flavor mature. Cut the tomatoes into bitesize pieces and place in a bowl. Don't  discard the juice as this helps create the base for Bruschetta flavor. Then, depending on your tastes (remember taste everything along the way) add chopped red onion, garlic and basil. Pour a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper and mix.

Now here's where the real recipe comes to live - let the mixture sit, yes sit! You want the flavors to meld together and become one Bruschetta instead of individual ingredients. Grill some bread, top with the tomato mixture and sit back and enjoy. We love you summer!
