There is nothing more delicious or more beautiful than a perfectly ripe heirloom tomato.  

Brandywine, Purple Cherokee a pink or green zebra, oh-my!  So though my own garden tomatoes were lacking to say the least, I did get a few Brandywine and Purple Cherokee’s, I did find a surplus of heirloom beauties at our local produce store and I snatched them up with this recipe on my mind.  This is one of those recipes I find so beautiful I not only take pics with my camera I snap them up on my i-phone too.  Then of course while the darn thing is baking the wonderful smells that fill the house, I almost couldn’t wait to cut into it for dinnertime.  Well, that is one of the great reasons to photograph your food, I had to cut into it once it cooled and take a bite for the sake of the photograph.  Or thats what I tell my family when there was a piece missing.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did.Heriloom Tomato Tart Reciope | ahealthylifeforme.com
