Attention Vancouver, WA:

Upside-Down Tomato Cornbread
1 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups fine or medium ground cornmeal
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups half and half
2 eggs + 1 egg white
¾ stick melted butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup shredded pepper jack or cheddar cheese
For Top (or is it bottom?)
4 Roma tomatoes sliced crosswise ¼ inch thick
½ tablespoons olive oil
Approximately ½ cup 3LF Tomato Tapas Jam
1 tablespoon warm water
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 375° F. Rub a 12-inch cast iron skillet with olive oil (If using a 9-inch skillet, reduce all ingredients by 1/3). Place a single layer of tomatoes in skillet in a circle pattern (this will become the top of the finished cornbread). Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Heat tomatoes over med- low for about 5 minutes, or until they have reduced slightly in size and some of their moisture has cooked out.
While tomatoes are cooking, combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir together. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together, eggs, egg white, half and half, melted butter and honey. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently stir in shredded cheese.
When tomatoes are ready, remove skillet from stovetop. Stir 1 tablespoon warm water into Tomato Tapas Jam to make spreading easier, and spread over top of the tomato layer. Pour cornbread mixture into skillet and bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Immediately place heatproof serving plate upside down over skillet. Turn plate and skillet over. Tap skillet several times to loosen tomatoes. Remove skillet and get ready to impress.

Pizza with French Onion, Chicken and Fontina
1 prepared pizza crust
1 ½ cup rotisserie chicken cut into bite size pieces. Skin removed.
3LF French Onion Confit
1 cup fontina cheese shredded
4 scallions thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 450 F. Cover pizza crust with a generous layer of 3LF French Onion Confit. Scatter with diced chicken, scallions and cover with cheese. Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes on cookie sheet (or directly on oven rack if crispier crust is preferred) until cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
There’s nothing like summer in the Pacific Northwest. 3LF’s favorite part is seeing the farms and orchards spring to life! Our local farmers report that their Hood strawberries have set on and the harvest forecast is good. That’s music to our ears! Before you know it our kitchen will be strawberry central once again.
