Oh. My. Gosh. I can’t believe I took the whole week off blogging, but I was so inspired and excited when I returned from the International Food Blogger Conference on Sunday that I didn’t know what to do with myself first.

Toasted pita bread and hummus reminds me of my college roommate and friend-turned sister-in-law (how fun is that?). She used to eat it often and it became one of our quick lunches in between classes. The lightly warmed and toasted pita was so good with a smear of hummus on it. I thought this time…

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus & Meal Planning

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

I have mentioned before that I love serving vegetables for appetizers. They fill you up on less calories plus it’s just nice to get extra veggies into the meal. These are a little more sinful than regular roasted veggies because of the addition of the salty crispy prosciutto. They’ve got the red and green going…

Crostini with Whipped Feta and Tomatoes | www.nutriitouseats.com

This is hands down one of my favorite appetizers ever. I made it for the first time a while back when my mom was in town and we ate it several nights for dinner. Wine and crostini. What more do you need? By the way, have you ever wondered the difference between crostini and bruschetta?…
