    Holy snail tails! I wish (and hope) Gailanng is around! THIS was amazing! I am scared to go into the kitchen - the pie sits and waits and looks at me ----with it's devilish, "come-hither-look" - begging me to come in, and devour more of it's contents. "NO! I sail out to it, no! - I will not go in and eat yet another slice." <br/>You decide. Go ahead and make it. Maybe ..just maybe - you're better then me.

    I absolutely loved this with the biscuit crust instead of a pie dough crust. This is definately the best tomato pie recipe out there. I used half cheddar and half mozzarella cheese, and then realized I was out of Parm cheese. Next time will make sure I have parm cheese as well. Great recipe!

    Made for ZWT 6 and really love this. I used one of the make-your-own Bisquick recipes on Zaar and it was great. Perfect for all those summer tomatoes! I'm a Quisine Queen!!

    LOVE THIS! This is so delicious. I used Arrowhead Mills Organic Buckwheat Pancake & Waffle Mix because it's what I had on hand. It made for a nice filling crust. Who knew that tomatoes, cheese, some herbs, and mayonnaise would be so simple yet so heavenly. Made for P-A-R-T-Y 2009. Thanks for posting this gailanng!

    We really enjoyed! Delicious flavor and makes a beautiful presentation. I used 2 individual tart pans. Served this with a crisp green salad and ham. Thanks gailann! I will make this again soon! Made for Holiday Tag


I'm just me, mother, grandmother...friend to many and a Louisianian. My Cajun and French Quarter Italian descent afforded me exposure to some of the best of foods. My passions are my family, decorating, cooking and gardening. Those very passions push me into constant awareness with always looking for something new to delight the senses, thus my favorite idiom...Inspire me, puuuullllllleeeeeeease! ...and I mean it, too. God Bless America!
