I tried, guys. Really, I did.

I promised myself I would wait until the first day of fall to open my first can of pumpkin. I refused to be that girl. You know the one I’m talking about.. the one that is all “OMG #PSL” in like, August.

And yet, here we are. Three days away from the official start of fall and elbows deep in Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa. Soo close…

Hors d’oeuvres. Appetizers. Small bites. Tapas.

No matter what you call them, they’re an integral part of entertaining. Now, I should preface all of this by saying that I’m certainly no expert when it comes to hosting lavish gatherings (or just plain old gatherings for that matter)..

Cantaloupe & Feta Bruschetta

Bursting with sweet, juicy cantaloupe, salty feta, crisp red onion, and savory basil and served on lightly toasted baguette, it’s the perfect dish for your end-of-summer gatherings!

But when I found myself carrying my new 8 lb 7 oz bundle of joy home from the Farmer’s Market last weekend, I knew it was time to get creative.
