The giveaway has ended! Thanks to all those who entered. Inger W., you’re the lucky winner! I will be in touch over email. Enjoy your Saturday, everyone!
Happy Fall Folks!
I’ve got an appetizer that was a cinch to throw together and will definitely be making the rounds with all of the parties and gatherings coming up this season.
If you can assemble a few ingredients and throw them under the broiler until melty and gooey, you can knock this one out of the park. Just take a baguette, slice it up, and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Top the baguette with a slice of green apple, and a chunk of brie cheese.
Put under the broiler for 5-10 minutes until the cheese has melted and the edges of the crostini are toasted. Once you pull the tray out of the oven, place a chunk of honeycomb onto each slice and sprinkle with chopped pecans, salt, and pepper. Here’s a printable!
I think what really sends this appetizer out of the park is the fresh chunk of honeycomb I top it with right out of the oven. If you’ve never had fresh honeycomb, seek it out this weekend and thank me later. It really is nature’s best candy and there isn’t anything like the taste of local, fresh honey.
To celebrate everything I love about this time of year (colder weather, changing leaves, pumpkins, cider, sweaters, more pumpkins, football, and apple appetizers with honeycomb…in no particular order) I’m giving away one of my very favorite finds; a burlap basket from Lemon Curd Designs.
I first spotted these baskets at a local farmer’s market and fell in love. I immediately thought the basket would be great to put a whole baguette or bread slices in but upon closer inspection it can be used for so much more. The clever gal behind these baskets suggested using them for TV remote wrangling on a coffee table or small kids toys but the possibilities are endless! I could see this basket filled with potpourri, K-cups or tea bags on the kitchen counter, silverware on a buffet table…I could go on and on.
As if these bags couldn’t get any better, they are locally made from recycled burlap coffee sacks and are completely washable!
Whenever I have a great find, I want to share it with the world so I’ve got one basket to give away to you, my reader friends.
So enter the giveaway, eat an apple appetizer, and go jump in a pile of leaves!
Have a great weekend!
