This is so simple, yet I had no idea! Spoiler alert…cut your lemons and limes lengthwise! You’ll get way more juice from them!
Genius food hack
I saw this video on another blog I read and had to share this. If you try this at home, be sure your knife is nice and sharp, otherwise you’ll be left with half-sliced, banged-up tomatoes. And, after you slice all those teenie-tiny tomatoes, may I suggest you roast them in the oven and serve them on a toasted baguette slice with some fresh basil. It’s the perfect snack (or appetizer) anytime of the year.

Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Toss the sliced tomatoes in olive oil on a sheet pan. Generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until soft and tender. Serve as a side dish (great with grilled meats) or on toasted baguette slices with some fresh basil and additional olive oil.
