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…” ♬
First of all, a disclaimer. 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 The Bourbon, Beer & Burger Pub in Sioux Falls, Taphouse 41. If you’re in Sioux Falls, you need to get yourself 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.
