Here we are with our third maple recipe for you – Maple Roasted Tomato Orzo Salad.

So far, we already shared Mason Jar Maple Martinis and Maple Bacon Cheese Cups.

This recipe started from a love of roasting tomatoes.  At the end of the tomato growing season we always seem to end up with an abundance of cherry tomatoes that are too small for making sauce.

So, a few years ago we began roasting them in olive oil and herbs and then freezing them to use in dishes throughout the year.  In fact, just the other night I made a chicken dish with some we still had left from the summer.

I thought it only seemed appropriate during our week of maple recipes to try one with roasting tomatoes – and again, this one is quite easy.

- Cook Orzo according to directions on box

- Combine everything from the baking dish and orzo and chill overnight or several hours

About Finding Home

My name is Laura and I have been running a small interior decorating business since 2004. I have always had a love for decorating but I never fully realized it until about 10 years ago. I live in New York with my husband and two daughters. They support me and encourage me at every turn. I have always loved the “hunt” for the next treasure, especially when you have to get down and dirty to discover it. I feel like it is time to start taking my business in a new direction. I am not sure exactly what that will be, but this blog is about that journey. About finding a sense of home, a place where we belong and can most be ourselves. Thank you for being part of my journey.
