Classic Bruschetta

Every summer I look forward to planting my little herb garden outside on the deck. Basil is one of my favorite herbs and I love using it in my summer recipes, like these Lemon & Basil Grilled Pork Chops. Today, I’m sharing the recipe for my favorite Classic Bruschetta. I make this year-round, but in the summer when I have fresh tomatoes and basil right outside my patio door, I take full advantage of it. Impromptu parties and dinners happen {Read More}

Football season is here! And last night our beloved Green Bay Packers took the win over the New York Jets! Here in Wisconsin we take our Packer football season very seriously.
