An easy, yet fancy appetizer.
When the weather starts getting cooler we tend to spend more time at home. Less running around in general. For me that means....more time to cook & experiment with food! On the weekends, I like to try out new recipes that I wouldn't have time to make during the week. A dish I recently ate at a restaurant & this blog post had me thinking about a new savory appetizer.
Crostini with ricotta, tomato jam & crispy prosciutto.
It's seemingly "fancy" but the process is very simple. I used store-bought crostini to save time ( Scharr GF Italian Crostini) but you could easily make your own by crisping up some bread. The tomato jam for the crostini bites takes time to cook down. But the ingredients come together very quickly & it requires little intervention. The prosciutto can be crisped up in just a few minutes in the oven. After that, it's time to layer!
Make this for some friends or your partner & watch for that "impressive" look!
How perfect are these appetizer plates for this savory bite?? I'm picturing many desserts, snacks & appetizers served on these classic white plates. These affordable plates have a timeless look that won't go out of style. Plus they're low maintenance: chip & scratch resistant, dishwasher - microwave - oven - freezer safe.

Craving Fall Flavors?
I'm not big into creating seasonally appropriate meals.
I've been known to eat a caprese salad in winter or devour a bowl of tortilla soup in mid summer. With that being said, I do like to experiment with some seasonal flavors from time to time! I know most (normal) people love to eat with the seasons so I want to honor that!
Here are a few of my favorite recipes that feature basic fall ingredients. No shopping for crazy, hard to find items. Scroll for some quick & easy recipes that you can incorporate into your fall routine. Enjoy!
We made these delightful salted caramel pancakes last weekend on a whim & were so delighted! They were a fun twist on our classic pancake breakfast.
- Mix up King Arthur Gluten Free Pancake Mix according to the box. You could use any mix you like!
- Using 1/4 cup of the batter make individual pancakes. We love to make extra for the next day! Spray the pan with coconut oil when making the pancakes. This give them a yummy flavor & is a better oil to cook with.
- Onto each pancake spread a bit (or a lot!) of salted caramel sauce. I used a small jar I picked up at a gift shop. There are plenty of options at any grocery store or gourmet food shops!
- Top the stack with lots of cinnamon & chopped up gala apples.
