When John and I got married we loved throwing dinner parties. Obviously we still do.
This Eggplant Bruschetta was one of the few appetizers I had on repeat at those dinner parties. It was actually one of the first recipes I ever put on the blog.
I went to make it a few weeks ago and realized wow I sure hope people haven’t tried to make it because the directions were confusing and measurements were a little wacky! Luckily 6 years later my cooking skills have gotten a little better. So recipe tested and approved now. Haha
Like I said before things are a little busy with my job and Amelia is sick yet again. So short and sweet today! Things will calm down in the next month or so. And hopefully all the recipes like Maple Bacon Gravy, BBQ Chicken Sliders, Brown Sugar Bourbon Cocktail will finally make an appearance on the blog! Fingers crossed!
