honeyed almond, raisin, olive & ricotta crostini

Um….did Christmas sneak up on anyone else?

How is it already this week? This entire year has flown by, and I’m not really ready for it to be over yet.

I AM ready for time off work, time with family and friends, time without alarm clocks, and time for amazing food.

I know you can find all kinds of huge main dish recipes this time of year – for ham and turkey and gallons of mashed potatoes. And then the same for breakfast: everything from cinnamon rolls to breakfast casseroles and baked french toast.

But the thing I’m always looking for this time of year is easy, quick snacks and appetizers. Because I’m kind of terrible at having dinner parties.

It’s okay. I’m working on it. But I know it’s not one of my strengths. I stress out thinking nothing will turn out well, and that just makes me sweaty and a little ticked off. Two really good qualities you want in a party hostess, am I right?

But! I have a new favorite party snack right here, and I can’t wait to make it again. It’s salty, it’s sweet, it’s crunchy, it’s creamy….it’s everything, all in one bite.
