The Apple Tree, by Kayla Rose

Last year I was delighted to read my niece’s first ever novel (let’s open the champagne!) The Apple Tree, by Kayla Rose.

Of course I’m putting a plug in for her today, being the proud Aunt, for her amazing accomplishments.

What a fun, heartwarming book to read, and so well-written, with so many twists and turns! I thoroughly enjoyed myself, reading it on the plane to the east coast. I don’t read a lot of “romance” novels or books in this genre, so I’ll admit that I was pleasantly surprised, sucked into the story of Drew Caldwell.

Thanks for letting me share this with you all. Not everyone can write books and publish them in your 20s! So great job, Kayla Rose! With love, your proud Auntie! :)

Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Ingredients

  • 1 French baguette, sliced 1/4” thick
  • Olive oil
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 10-16 fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic glaze, we love DeLallo brand
  • 1/3 cup small mint leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • To prepare the bread, preheat oven to BROIL. Lay the slices of bread on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Broil each side for about 30 seconds until toasted and brown. (Don’t walk away, it’s easy to over-toast the bread:)
  • Combine cheeses in a small bowl and mix well.
  • Spread the toasted baguette slices with cheese mixture and top with strawberries, pressing the strawberry pieces into the cheese.
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze and garnish with a fresh mint leaf. Serve!
