Crostini…. so easy to make!

Crostini are my go to appetizer. They are so easy to make, a little bit classy while still being casual, and they kind of remind me of pizza, so of course they are my favorite. Especially if you have a great bread shop near by, you can grab a lovely long baguette and slice it […]…

Things can be a little slow up here in the North country. Early spring blessings don’t always greet us in early spring–sometimes we have to wait until much closer to summer for delicious things like strawberries and rhubarb to emerge.
