It’s Party Time

Tis the season! …For lots and lots of parties. If you’re hosting this year, or in charge of supplying apps or snacks for a gathering you’ll be attending, there’s sure to be tough competition in the food department. With all the parties this time of year, the guests you serve just might be party food connoisseurs by the time they try yours. That sounds pretty intimidating. But guess what? So, what’s the secret to impressing this holiday season? Well, in our (admittedly biased opinion) it’s fresh, high quality produce. Good ingredients like flavorful vegetables, fruits and berries make creating delicious recipes a breeze.

These Smashed Blackberry and Goat Cheese Toasts are not only absolutely beautiful, but a total crowd pleaser as well. Blackberries make this recipe refreshingly tart and lightly sweet- perfect to balance out a lineup of heavy holiday food.
