[1] place tomato wedges into a large bowl, sprinkle with cornstarch and season generously with salt and pepper. gently toss to combine. set aside.

[2] combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and pepper to taste in bowl of a large food processor or electric mixer. add butter; pulse until mixture resembles crumbs. add eggs, buttermilk, cheese; pulse until just combined.

[3] spread tomato mixer in the bottom of a large baking dish coated with cooking spray. top with dollops of dough, spreading lightly, but leaving gaps for steam to escape. bake for 45 mins until bubbly and golden.

zucchini & squash bread

10 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2 cups all purpose flour, plus more for the pan
1 teaspoon table salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 yellow squash
2 zucchini
1 cup pistachios, shelled & coarsely chopped
1 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons fennel seeds (fennel is disgusting i would omit this if you dont like licorice)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
[1] generously butter a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. sprinkle with flour, tapping out excess. whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl.

[2] coarsely grate squash and zucchini on the large holes of a box grater onto a large piece of cheesecloth; gather edges and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

[3] spread the pistachios in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet; toast until fragrant and lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes. transfer to a plate to cool.

[4] using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy. add the eggs one at a time, mixing until combined after each addition. Beat in vanilla. add flour mixture, and beat until just combined. use a flexible spatula to fold in the squash, pistachios, and fennel seeds. spoon batter into prepared loaf pan.

[5] bake 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. continue baking until loaf is golden brown and a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55-60 minutes. let cool on a wire rack 10 minutes before unmolding onto rack to cool completely
the bread should be served with the cobble. but i think it make a lovely breakfast bread! enjoy!
