A small town girl making the big city home. She loves everything DC, and is slowly introducing her one-year-old to the world of Smithsonians, monuments, cherry blossoms and the DMV. A perfect day in town would include breakfast at Eastern Market (or Founding Farmers), checking out the National Gallery of Art, a burger and/or shake at Good Stuff or sandwich from Taylor Made, the two mile walk around the monuments, and cupcakes from Sprinkles (or Georgetown Cupcake if the line isn't forever long) to go.

Six Yummy Cherry Tomato Recipes You Should Try

DC Mama- Cherry Tomato Recipes copyI grew something in my garden that is rapidly filling my refrigerator and freezer. Cherry tomatoes are everywhere. When the seed packet says Super Sweet 100, it really means you will have hundreds and hundreds by the end of the growing season.

I have eaten bags of them while out at the park, I have frozen quart sized bags of cherry tomatoes for the winter, and yet, I still have blossoms on my five plants.

Lesson learned: my family probably doesn’t need five cherry tomato plants.

Here are a six of our favorite, and mostly easy, cherry tomato recipes.

My Favorite Cherry Tomato Recipes

I made this for a party last week and will gleefully attest to the crostini being the first thing gone at the buffet table. It’s a crowd pleaser!

While very savory and filling, we usually serve the cobbler alongside some sort of meat dish.

4. Ina’s Capellini with Tomatoes and Basil via House Beautiful

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made “Ina’s spaghetti” as I’ve nicknamed it. It’s super easy and always tasty. In my next life I’d like to be BFF with Ina.

Once our larger tomatoes start ripening in full, I’m hoping to cross something more off our summer bucket list– canning. I’ve rounded up a few friends who either know about canning or want to know about canning, and I think between us we’ll conquer it!

Do you have cherry tomato recipes you’d like to toss in the ring as possibly the best ever? Please share!

    For instance, the main characters are both trying very hard to get into an Ivy League school, and almost fail to do so, but they both succeed
    in the end. You can place a few on the sink countertops as well as in the
    stalls. Some of the cost from this service can be written off when it comes to filing your taxes.
