So I have to be honest, the title of this recipe comes from a good friend who titled it (earmuffs)  Good S**t dip. Because whenever she makes it everyone eats it right up and everyone says that is some, well you get it.

I have had the same response to this super easy dip. It is great to bring to BBQ’s and parties or to just eat by yourself. ¬†Which I find myself doing even if we are bringing it somewhere.

Everything is perfect in this dip. Yes, perfect. And it is pretty and colorful. I like pretty things.

Go and make this now. You will thank me later.

Goat Cheese Crostini

One of the things I adore about warm weather and St. Louis is the Tower Grove Farmers Market.

Breakfast tacos and a grilled cheese stand? When is it Saturday?

My tummy is hungry thinking about the fresh fruit, veggies, and cheeses we come home with.

I thought of this tasty appetizer when we had some friends come over for our first summer BBQ which included burgers, guacamole, baked beans and sangria.

That morning we headed to the Tower Grove Market where I picked up a French Baguette, some fresh goat cheese, and tomatoes. I had basil growing in our small city home garden.

1 French Baguette
Olive Oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
Basil Leaves
Goat Cheese
Tomatoes sliced

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Cut baguette into slices. Mine were about 1/2 inch thick.
3. Drizzle olive oil onto baguette
4. Spread garlic onto baguette
5. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until your desired crispiness,
6. Cool
7. Spread goat cheese on baguette slices, top with one basil leaf and tomato.
