Keep Your Guests *Appy* With This Drool-Worthy Appetizer
When it comes to parties, nothing makes us app-ier than a table filled with delicious bite-sized appetizers. There’s something so welcoming about a smorgasbord of single-serve foods, don’t you think? We like to keep our finger on the pulse when it comes to finger foods, dedicating ample time to finding, trying and concocting the best small bites for our upcoming gatherings, which is why today we are teaming up with TRISCUIT to share a recipe that may just steal the show at the party. Read on for the details.
But first, let’s go back a short while ago to when TRISCUIT flash-funded 50 artisan food makers on Indiegogo. They selected makers who started with a small idea and made it into more. One of the lucky makers was Emily Heizer Hall of Razzbourne Farms. She has perfected the art of making goat cheese and we can totally vouch for her skills. Her cheese is ah-mazing.
We’ve combined her chévre with grilled strawberries and a balsamic glaze for an “mmmm”-worthy appetizer that won’t disappoint.
Don’t have time for grilling? Substitute the berries with strawberry jam and a drop of balsamic vinegar for a quick-and-easy alternative.
<b><br/></b>1. Cut strawberries in half and grill for two minutes on each side.
2. For the glaze, whisk ½ cup balsamic vinegar and two tablespoons honey in a small sauce pan over high heat. Let simmer for about eight minutes.
3. Construct the appetizer by adding goat cheese and grilled strawberries to a TRISCUIT Cracker and drizzling balsamic glaze on top. Garnish with a mint leaf.
First grill your strawberries for two minutes on each side. Try for grill marks on them to get that caramelly flavor.
Next, make your balsamic glaze. If you have leftovers, you can drizzle this on other grilled fruit for a tasty snack.
Time to assemble your TRISCUIT Cracker. First add goat cheese, then a strawberry, some glaze and a sprig of mint.
Voila! You’re about to experience heaven in your mouth.
Not only are these delicious, but they are so good looking! I dare say, they could be models ;)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
