Hey hey!  How’s it going, you guys?  I’m just going to come out and say it – we are over half way through 2017!  Can you believe it?  This month flew by (as usual).  Just last week, I saw a flyer with ‘end of season sale’ on the front page.  WHAT?! NO!  C’mon!  Like, seriously, the season just started.  I refuse to get sucked into that nonsense and as long as the temperature is decent, this chick is going to enjoy every day grillin’, chilln’, and soaking in that sun (with the appropriate level of SPF<—public service announcement – wear your SPF, people!

This Roasted Strawberry and Tipsy Cheese Crostini is my new go-to summer appetizer! It’s simple to put together and puts a smile on my face every time I eat it.

Once removed, it is topped with the roasted strawberries, a little arugula, and drizzled with balsamic reduction. It’s the perfect little bite! Continue reading
