Anna (our receptionist) also gave me this cheese and tomato recipe, which she says is a family favourite. so i've eagerly put it on the list of things to try! (after the next two busy weeks of formals, weddings and busy sewing bees!) i think it's pretty similiar to our family recipe one, just with the tomato and garlic..which i am excited to try.
