I made a decent dent in my Pinterest boards this week. Let the pinning resume! I made a deal with myself a while back: no more browsing/pinning until I dig through through the hundreds of pins I’ve been hoarding and actually try out some of the recipes. Mission: Accomplished. It just so happens that both of the recipes I tested this week feature tomatoes and basil, and both of them turned out really well! Here’s a peek and the pins:
1. Caprese Bites: I dug into the archives for this one! I think this was one of the first recipes I ever pinned. It’s been collecting dust at the bottom of the pile, so it was high time to make the digital picture come to life. I made these Caprese bites for our Academy Award party at work. They are super simple to put together and an easy, elegant appetizer for any occasion.
2. Tomato and Herb Cheese Tart: This is my take on one of my newest pins. What a stunner, right? If I could only eat one meal a day, it would definitely be brunch. I go a little loco for a good quiche or egg tart. This one was a snap to make. To save time and energy, I used a frozen, deep pie crust (instead of making crust from scratch) and artichoke Allouette herb cheese. Yum!
