Triple Berry Honey Bruschetta

Let's face it if you are a food blogger - some days go really great and others so-so.  Sometimes a recipe is a flop, not what you imagined and back to the drawing board or it turns out what you envisioned and tastes great!   Some days your lighting - well sucks - and other days the gods are smiling down at you (to provide that great light!)  Today was one of those I "love" blogging days (believe me I have the I "don't love" blogging days).  So I'm super excited to share this  Triple Berry Honey Bruschetta today - not only does it come together quickly and taste great but I'm hoping you enjoy the pretty pictures too!

Now that summer is around the corner, we tend to do a bit more entertaining and I love having some new appetizers to share with our guests.  And while I've made some other kinds of bruschetta  usually vegetable-tomato based, I really wanted to try one with fruit.  The goat cheese base is whipped with some honey and heavy cream and then topped with berries.  Feel free to get creative and maybe add in or substitute blackberries.  I just happened to use what I had on hand.

When it came time for pictures, I wanted to add a bit of green so the colors would pop and have some contrast.  I just happen to have a basil plant on the deck so I did some light snipping.  Then it was time for "the photo shoot" so I snapped away and when I was done I visited the DIY Guy in his home office.  He loves when I bring him some treats.  Later I asked what he thought and he gave it rave reviews and even mentioned that the basil was a nice surprise that went perfectly with the bruschetta.  Well then I said, Oh that was garnish only but he said nope it belongs!  So there you have it, not only DIY Guy approved but his take on today's recipe.  Enjoy!!

    1. Yes.... Try plain cream cheese or mascarpone.... Either would be fine!

  13. This looks so delicious and I love mixing herbs with fruit, it adds complexity. Your photos are outstanding and I totally understand the good days and the bad days. There are days when everything goes so smoothly and then there are those days when I have to surrender and start over.
