I’m currently in the sky, headed back to the West Coast! I’ll call it the “best” coast if it feels more like the fall weather I enjoyed in New York, and less like the summer weather I didn’t enjoy in LA this past weekend. (I loved being in NYC, the energy feels so different than in LA – I only wish I could have extended my trip so that I could have stayed longer than 36 hours!)
But back to the weather (I am from the midwest after all, and we do like to talk about it), I’m ready for squash and soup and chili and hot tea ALL the time! Temps in the 80’s make that complicated.
But I’ll try not to complain about the weather and continue to drown my weather woes with good appetizers. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. Appetizers are the way to my heart. They are my heart.
And easy appetizers are best. Because when you’re hungry, you’re HUNGRY!
Here, crunchy crostini is topped with creamy and slightly pungent gorgonzola cheese (I used a triple cream!) and a drizzle of sweet honey. You can’t go wrong with this combination. Crunchy, creamy, sweet and salty.
Three minutes until crostini is in your belly.
- Lightly toast bread
- Spread cheese
- Drizzle honey
- Lightly toast again
Perfection in a bite.
- french baguette
- 4 oz gorgonzola (or blue) cheese
- Lightly broil bread for about 2-3 minutes, until golden brown.
- Spread blue cheese and drizzle with honey.
- Broil crostini for another 2 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
