Friends, happy SPRING hosting with my very easy, Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta recipe.

It’s a simple, flavorful appetizer, ready in minutes for a dinner party, or even last minute guests.

I also love how beautiful strawberries are on an appetizer or a dessert. Like these recipes: Strawberry Cream Shortbread Dessert, Tangerine Poppy Seed Cake with Strawberries, and Endive with Strawberry Mint Honey Recipe.

I’m ready for more sunshine, Friends, are you? Yesterday we woke up to more snow on the ground!

We’ve also had so much rain and snow on the west coast this year, it’s been a wet one .. that is for sure.

On my recent trip to New York, 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.

The Apple Tree, by Kayla Rose

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.

The Apple Tree is marketed to young adults, but anyone can read it. While love and romance were major themes of the book, there was as much emphasis on all the other kinds of love that we experience in life–love between a parent and child, love between siblings, love between friends, and love of oneself.

Friends, you can buy a paper copy or electronic one on Kindle today!

I also want to mention that this is a “clean” book. Not a bunch of profanity or sex, which is like a breath of fresh air and not necessary for moving the story forward. If anything, it would take away from the story–a sweet, beautiful love story.

Great job on your first novel, Kayla Rose!

With love, your proud Auntie! :)

Back to our appetizer. Add this to your menu if you’re having neighbors over for a glass of wine and a book discussion, or making up a beautiful platter for Easter and spring and summer hosting!

DELISH!
