Roasted_Cherry_Tomatoes_Anchovies Cherry_Tomatoes Lemon_Anchovies cherry_tomatoes_Anchovies It’s funny how much you can really take after your parents when it comes to really weird and specific food preferences. My Dad loves burnt cookies, you know the ones at the edge of the cookie sheet that cook more than all the others because your oven is funky? Yea, those ones are his favorite, and they are mine too. My Dad also loves anchovies, and so do I. Sometimes, rarely, but sometimes I get a crazy craving them. I don’t really want them on my Caesar salad, or on my pizza, I want them in a way where I am tasting all the briny salty goodness they have to offer. Which is why I love this recipe for Roasted Tomatoes on the Vine with Anchovies. Not only does it show off anchovies, but it’s so easy to make. You can bulk this up just a little by serving it with crostini, but I don’t think it needs it. This is one of those recipes where the food is prepared simply, and it’s good just because everything together is married perfectly, and balanced perfectly. I really love this recipe, and if you love anchovies, you will know why!

    Roasted cherry tomatoes are probably my favorite way to eat/cook tomatoes! I usually just roast them with fresh rosemary, but I love anchovies and I can’t wait to try this!
