Today I am posting a recipe from my DIL Kristen. She made similar crostini for us over the holidays. She changed the recipe a little since Christmas and likes this version even better. What is so unique about these crostini is the creamy consistency of the goat cheese spread and the freshness of the tomato and basil garnish. I thought they would make a great appetizer for a Super Bowl party or for any party for that matter.
Kristen is very dear to me. She and I have much in common. She loves to cook and she is very good at it. But she is also a savvy business woman who runs a very successful online stationery boutique specializing in unique wedding invitations called The Green Kangaroo. The name of her business came from the title of the book The One in the Middle is the Green Kangaroo by Judy Blume. It is a story of a middle child (which Kristen is) trying to be unique and special. She is both of these in spades.
When she emailed me this recipe and the accompanying pictures, I knew I wanted to share it with you. I have never had a bad meal from her kitchen. Thank you Kristen!
I am linking this recipe to Tailgating Time -Super Bowl at Seaside Simplicity. There are lots of great recipes for your Super Bowl party on this post.
