I had to share this tip that I learned by watching the chef at a resturant. I have a favorite dip recipe that includes cherry tomatoes but I always dread having to cut all the little tomatoes. Here's the tip -- hopefully I can explain well in words.

Take 2 disposable plastic lids (the kind you get at the olive bar at the grocery store)

Put the tomatoes between the 2 lids

Cut the tomatoes with the knife guiding between the 2 lids

It works great!

That works for grapes and olives, too!

And the toddler will just pop the whole grape in his mouth and wonder why he's turning blue. Sad.
