RAIN RAIN GO AWAY... It seriously has been raining for 3 days straight! We now have a snow storm advisory..isn't that just fabulous.. ? (insert sarcasm here.)

One of my favorite appetizers is bruschetta! This is my friend Courtney, recipe. She blogs here! 

Who doesn't love a little Italian treat? This recipe is simple, delicious and healthy and takes about 10 minutes to whip up! 

  • 1 whole wheat baguette
  • 2 tomato
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 5 fresh basil leaves chopped
  • 1/4 C  toasted Pinenuts ( I used walnuts because I didn't have any pinenuts:(
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • fresh grated Parmesan cheese to taste
  • 1/4 C balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

To make:

Dice tomatoes, chop garlic and basil and place in bowl. 

Add sea salt and add the vinegar and let it marinate for a minute. 
Add other ingredients and combine. 

Slice your baguette into 1/3 inch slices and brush olive oil over the tops. 
 Toast your bread until it's golden in color.  I sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top and broil in the oven for just a minute or two. 
 Top your bread with  the mix and enjoy!  

Q. How is the weather where you are? 

Q. What is your favorite appetizer?
