Ivonne of Cream Puffs in Venice fame is one of my favorite food bloggers. She's such a talented writer and her recipes are fantastic. And, if you're not interested in those, just visit for the photos.
Well, Ivonne's gone and topped herself by writing a great article about her experiences making tomato sauce. Boy, that sounds anticlimactic. But it isn't. She tells the story of what it was like to grow up every year "doing the tomatoes" with her family, canning tomatoes so there would be delicious homemade sauce all through the winter. It's a coming-of-age story within a how-to guide.
But don't let me spoil it for you.
Go read Ivonne's story for yourself.
