Got tomatoes? Lucky you! The Northeast's historic episode of tomato blight has left tomato-lovers in a sad state — no tomatoes from their own vines, and tomatoes extra-expensive at the market. But if you have a precious handful of ripe tomatoes to eat for dinner tonight, here are a dozen recipes that will show off their bright flavor.

By the way, have you checked out Summer Fest? It's a cross-blog event run by Margaret Roach at our very favorite garden blog, A Way To Garden. She has some great food blogger collaborators too, like Matt of Matt Bites and Shauna of Gluten-Free Girl.
