What a great theme. I am submitting a recipe for an Heirloom Tomato Tart. It's also available on my website if your readers would like to try it.

Good luck with your blog! You photos are fantastic. The tart looks amazing. And I love the "Recipes for Elise" section - that is such a thoughtful thing to do.
