Cherry tomato confit with garlic, shallots, and fresh herbs is the appetizer on repeat that I've made every single week of summer. With less than 5 minutes of prep time (YES, REALLY!), this dish cooks itself with practically no effort on your part and will become the star of your table. What is confit?

Very important question: do you own a waffle maker? If yes, hooray! I got your day-after-Thanksgiving brunch figured out. If no, I think we know what you're asking Santa for this year, am I right? Because GUYS, hello, just look at these cornbread stuffing waffles! They're crispy and light and airy at the same time and they're packed with so much flavor.
