Valentine's Day is quickly approaching! A lot of people go out for a nice fancy dinner and pay out of their pockets for a meal that will last 1 - 2 hours, so why not impress your significant other with a nice homemade meal! This way you can have a little more alone time together, impress him/her with your cooking abilities and spend that money you saved on the expensive dinner and catch a movie or go do a little dancing maybe!
Start off the meal with these simple yet delicious three-cheese crostini with honey for your honey! An appetizer that'll melt in your mouth and melt him/her's heart <3
1 French baguette, sliced on an angle
Olive oil, for drizzling
4 ounces goat cheese
4 ounces mascarpone
4 ounces ricotta
1 teaspoon lemon zest
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
Acacia honey, for drizzling
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Step 2: Place the baguette slices on a sheet tray and drizzle them with olive oil. They should be in the oven until they are nicely toasted and golden-brown in color. This should take about 5 minutes.
Step 3: While the baguettes are baking, in a bowl, mix and combine the goat cheese, mascarpone, ricotta and lemon zest. Throw in a bit of salt and pepper for some seasoning.
Step 4: Once you are happy with the texture and color of the bread, remove from the oven and spread your herbed cheese mixture all over each baguette. Drizzle each with some honey for a naturally sweetened touch and serve warm to your honey! :)
Have a fabulous Valentine's Day!
