Tomatoes. Onion. Butter. 45 minutes.
That's all you need to make what is the best -- and easiest -- tomato sauce out there.
The full, true tomato flavor is a revelation in itself -- as is finding out you don't need to cook in all those layers of garlic and herbs and whatnot to get there (and you might even be better off without them).
The recipe even is tailored perfectly to a 28-ounce can of good-quality tomatoes -- or, for a change of pace, use the ripe, plump, shiny tomatoes that you can find this season. Whatever you choose, just add an onion, swirl in some butter, and simmer away. Get ready for a revelation.

"We know that it might not be popular with everyone," he added, "but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."
Cathy's stance has sparked a debate about what constitutes "Biblical principles" -- ("No women will be hired, he will use slave labor, no shellfish on the menu, uniforms cannot be cotton-poly blends, women will not be served unless in the company of a man... you mean those biblical princi...Read More »
- The_stir | Life Made Easy | Wed, Jul 25, 2012 12:32 PM EDT | CommentsGuess what? You have way too much stuff. And guess what else? Even though you probably bought most of that stuff because it made you happy at the time, it's actually doing the opposite. So say the authors of the new book "Life at Home in the Twenty-first Century: 32 Families Open Their Doors," and I absolutely agree. As the book explains:
"Our excess becomes a visible sign of unaccomplished work that constantly challenges our deeply engrained notions of tidy homes and elicits substantial stress."

Or, to put it in layman's terms: All that crap we stuff into closets and cram under beds that ends up all over the house no matter how many plastic containers from IKEA we buy makes us feel like lazy slobs who can't get anything done and are probably going to end up on that godawful Hoarders show.
