Summer Squash Crostini {with ricotta & lemon}

by Lauren

squashcrostini

Patty pan squash might be the cutest little vegetables known to man. They are such a pretty shape and are so tiny! I regret not taking a photo before I chopped them up for this recipe but Google it and you’ll have to agree with me.

While I used patty pan squash for this recipe, you can just as easily use yellow squash and zucchini if patty pans aren’t available to you.

These crostini are so unexpected and flavorful. The … Read more...

Peach & Pear Honey Goat Cheese Crostini

by Chrissy

Dear friends, I have an announcement to make. Peach season is coming to an end. I fear that we just bought our last flat of peaches (11 big peaches for $5 @ TJ’s!). I say this with such a heavy heart. In my eyes, when peaches dwindle in the grocery store and one day disappear all together, that means that life Summer has officially ended.
