    Yum! These were like little bite-sized Caprese salads. Fantastic! After removing the inside of the tomatoes, I let them drain upside down on a cloth while I prepared the filling. I cubed fresh mozzarella to combine with the basil strips and used just pepper inside the tomatoes. I used tiny basil leaves for the basil garnish. Thanks for sharing! L-O-V-E Event 2012

I am a busy mom both with stuff at home and my work. My kids and husband love to try new creations so they are right at home with my love of recipes. It is fun to make something and try several different ways at it. I love to try different enchilada recipes, recipes for various ice teas, and anything that gets food on the table on the weeknights. Restaurant recipes for the weekends are another favorite.
