Tomatoe GazpachoGazpacho sounds a bit intimidating yet it’s just another one of those fancy words the culinary world uses for what is actually very simple. Gazpacho just means cold or uncooked soup. This one uses fresh tomatoes and tons of lovely and fragrant herbs. It’s such a great dish to enjoy in the summer since it is cool and refreshing. I love the idea of serving it in a large martini glass to give it a sophisticated and fun look.

Mr. Tomato HeadThis is a great way to get your kids to have fun while eating healthy food. These little guys are stuffed with a couscous mix which you can personalize to you and your family’s tastes.

84th & 3rdBloody Meari

Bloody MeariA Japanese twist on the Bloody Mary that uses fresh ripe tomatoes instead of tomato juice and freshly grated wasabi to give it an extra spicy kick. Fresh wasabi is not easy to find but you should be able to find wasabi powder in the Asian section of your local grocery store (horseradish can be substituted in a pinch). The tomato juice mix can be made and kept in the fridge for a few days so it’s great to make ahead and have ready for the party.

Now that you have been inspired get out there and get your tomatoes and get cooking!
