A few years back I visited Brevard, NC with a few blogging friends. Blogging friends are the kind of friendships that I never really had a category for.

When I left my job in dialysis about 11 years ago (27 years in this field), never did I realize how rich my life would become. Rich, as in I’ve met some of the most amazing, smart, fun, wise women through blogging, many whom I’ve been able to spend a lot of time with through traveling.

Many of my friends have been to my home in Oregon, and I’ve been lucky enough to visit a few of their homes. Most recently, a few of us gathered at Amy’s mountain home in the gorgeous hills of Brevard. What a treat!

Yes, we talk blogging when we’re together, ways to improve our businesses, but our friendships are way deeper than that. We talk family, because we are family!

The closer you get to people in your life, the more intimate and beautiful those friendships become. It’s one of those gifts that keep getting better with time.

So, along with laughs, cooking together, shopping (such a cute town!), and Amy turning me on to Hammered Aluminum (do you have any of these pieces?), one of the favorite shops down the street from her home was Mud Dabber’s Pottery of Brevard. (Above: Kristen, me, Amy, Cheryl.)

Buy a pottery Brie Baker!

Seriously, the cutest pottery store, where I picked up my first, ever, Brie Baker!

Do you own a Brie Baker?

What did I ever do without one of these little beauties? Since I cook a lot with Brie, I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot, especially how the brie bakes to a toasty brown!

You can buy small wheels of Brie that fit perfectly into the baker.

This time I roasted strawberries, which I’ve done several times for appetizers on my blog, with maple syrup, oil, and salt.

When it comes out of the oven, all bubbly and hot, cut the top off, creating a “lid,” which is pretty slick!

Fill the Brie with the hot, roasted strawberries.

Put the lid back on, and serve!

Or, leave the lid off and serve! Delicious.

Now, the only thing missing when I served this lovely appetizer the other night … were my 3 precious blogging friends!

This is for you, Amy, Kristen, and Cheryl! Cheers to our lovely time in Brevard, NC!

Roasted Strawberries Brie Appetizer

If you don’t have a baker for the Brie, you can place the round on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. strawberries, quartered, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 13.4 ounce Brie cheese round
  • Crackers

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Toss strawberries in maple syrup, olive oil, and salt. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until juicy and softened.
  • Remove Brie from wrapper and place in a small round baker (or a parchment-lined baking sheet). Bake for 20 minutes, or until crust is brown.
  • Allow to cool for 3 minutes. Take a knife and slice off the top of the Brie, cutting down to remove the top and about 1/2” of the Brie. Top with warm roasted strawberries (with sauce); place the lid back on top.
  • Serve with toasted bread or crackers!
