My mom's simple recipe. Easy, great and tasty! Please remember the nutritional facts are not correct, because you are not eating all the coating ingredients.

Evelyn, my mother, has been cooking tomatoes this way for 60 years - she's 82 - and didn't even consider this to be a recipe until I insisted on getting the steps involved from her. She said "everyone knows how to do this". Well, maybe everyone else does, but I didn't. And when I checked the Zaar files for a similar recipe, I failed to find one. So I concluded that either she's right - which means I'm really ignorant about basic cooking strategies, which is certainly a possibility - or that this IS indeed a recipe: her recipe. Evelyn is my mother's middle name, one she regrets not having decided to start using decades ago instead of the first name her parents gave her, so this posting is not only a celebration of HER recipe but the launch of her new nam
