Chunky Tomato Sauce

Today, please welcome Stephanie from The Recipe Renovator!


[Stephanie and her girl Daisy May.]

Today’s guest poster is my friend Stephanie Weaver, writer of the wonderful Recipe Renovator blog. I met Stephanie for the first time when we bonded over tofu scramble at the Dole Summit a year and a half ago, and our online friendship has grown ever since. (Back in September, Stephanie was kind enough to review Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free on her blog). I so admire Stephanie’s eloquence as a writer, creativity as a recipe developer, and incredibly broad knowledge of all things communications-focused. She’s one awesome lady!

Stephanie’s approach to food and cooking is very similar to mine, and I always find many delectable, “must try” recipes on her blog (just peek at these Pumpkin Spice WafflesProvencal Chickpea Salad, Thai Lettuce Wraps with Basil, or Vinegret, which I first found on her blog and just loved). In addition, we are also both avid dog lovers. Stephanie is currently raising her second Golden Retriever, Daisy May, after the loss of her first fur baby, Buddy Girl, almost two years ago (you can learn more about Stephanie’s moving and beautifully written pet loss memoir, Golden Angels, at the bottom of the post).

I hope you’ll give this easy, flavorful Chunky Tomato Sauce from Stephanie a try!

  1. Mmmmm…I can just taste this with summer-fresh tomatoes from the veg garden!

  2. Great to see Stephanie here! I very recently found the Recipe Renovator through Google + and love it.
    I bet with the oregano and fresh basil this sauce is just wonderful.

  3. I’m loving the simplicity of this recipe, but the complexity of the flavors. Perfect for when my tomatoes are full force this summer!!! Excellent recipe.

  4. Can’t wait until we have tomatoes again! love thinking about summer.

  5. Thanks everyone! This recipe is awesome with canned tomatoes, so no need to wait until late summer!

  6. This looks fantastic! I can’t wait to try it. Thank you.
