About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Tomato, Basil and Cheese = perfect combination :)

One of my seasonal favs!! I couldn't wait for the first big tomatoes to rippen up so I could make this!!

  • Sliced tomatoes (cut as thick or thin as you like. I like good hearty slices)
  • Basil (as much or little as you like)
  • Cheese (any kind! Parm, Mozzarella, etc...or a combination!)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Step 1: Slice Tomatoes
Step 2: Layer with Basil
Step 3: Layer with Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper
Step 4: Top with Cheese
Step 5: Bake at 400 degrees for 5-8 minutes (depending on how crispy you like the cheese...just keep an eye on it!)
Step 6: Serve it up! You can have them singles or layer them for a tall stack! Look at that Cheese!!! Oh you have to try this, it smells and tastes amazing! This is a very inexpensive and easy snack or appetizer...especially if you get the ingredients from your own backyard garden :)
