We’re finally getting some cool days and that means the tomatoes in our little garden will be slowing down. I snuck a few to make this very easy Rustic Tomato & Cararmelized Onion Galette.
Here’s a little sunshine in a jar for you! Marinated Goat Cheese. The tangy goat cheese is mellowed by the rich olive oil and perked up with citrus & herbs.
If you’re looking for a fun & festive little appetizer, mini peppers might be just the thing. These mini peppers are slightly roasted and stuffed with a sophisticated mixture of goat cheese & herbs and then drizzled with a little balsamic honey right before serving.
Spicy Mexica Chorizo tamed with a touch of melty cheese all piled on to the cutest little Polenta squares. That’s my kind of appetizer. Maybe yours, too! And look, there’s red & green for Christmas…
Thanks to my sister for finding this wonderful creamy, tangy spread that’s a bit different and perfect for the Holidays! The dried fruit makes it festive and adds a little sweetness and that flavor just bounces off the savory rosemary and garlic.
I gotta tell ya, I never thought about eating Bacon Wrapped Dates. Recipes, I’ve seen – but back me up here, folks, doesn’t it sound kind of weird? Well, weird they are, but weirdly delish!
Have I ever told you I’m wild about Beets? We had a rough start, beets and I did, way back in elementary school. Canned beets, blech! But garden fresh beets? They’re another story altogether. So if you haven’t had beets in awhile, “…all I’ma sayin’ is give beets a chance…” ♬
This spectacular salad, the Taphouse Salad with Roasted Tomatoes Mushroom Smashburger, was stolen – or at least the idea of it was. This is my version of a Taphouse Salad, inspired by a beer pub in Sioux Falls, Taphouse 41. First of all, I never would have thought to order such a thing – my Dad did. Then I salivated over his meal while I ate mine. Bless his heart, he did give me a little tidbit here and there.
Some of you (yes, you know who you are, baby sis and big bro!) may have heard me waxing on poetically about the humble beet. I love them and am always looking for ways to add them in to my diet when they’re available at the grocery or farmer’s market.
