Blackberry Brie Bites: Melted Brie cheese with blackberry jelly and fresh blackberries make these little appetizer bites an amazing snack to munch on. I suggest making them ASAP!
Did you hear that? That was 2013 passing you by. Is anyone else in awe that this year is coming to an end in only a few more days? It has been a great year for our family.
Deciding to go full time ministry and full time blogging has exceeded our expectations more than we could have even dreamed. So much has happened since I shared our new dreams and goals in THIS POST! We followed God’s leading, and He was wonderful to provide us with everything we needed, and even the things we just wanted. It was an adjustment for sure, but looking back I am so glad we listened.
Thank you so much for all my amazing readers who have helped me in my journey to do this blogging thing full time. Your comments and emails definitely keep me going strong. That and the stack of recipe notes I have piled up on my desk. I hope you are ready for some delicious treats and sweets and maybe even some dinners in the new year. I know I’m ready for it!
This is also the year I will remember falling in love with Brie cheese. Now normally I am not a huge cheese eater. Oh, I like it, and I eat it many different ways, but I usually don’t stray from the basic Cheddar, Mozzarella, or Colby Jack. But then I kept seeing this Brie stuff pop up in my readers and instagram. Thank you Ashton for making me want to try this amazing cheese.
I had my first slices of it with crackers. It’s good…very good. But then I bought a small round of it and it sat in my fridge. I just knew that I wanted to experience some sort of melted goodness with it, but I wasn’t sure what. So it sat there for a few weeks. Crazy, I know! Perfectly delicious cheese just sitting there!
Then just the other day I opened my fridge and started rearranging and tossing. You know the drill, right. Buy healthy delicious veggies in hopes that you will eat them, only to put them in the drawers to be promptly forgotten about. Let’s just say that bags of asparagus cannot be forgotten about. Or boxes of lettuce. Eeeiikk! Thankfully carrots and peppers last a little bit longer. I have high hopes for my new years goals. Plain and simple…eat more veggies. Maybe I should start putting them in plain sight. Maybe I should start using the drawers for all the cream cheese, butter, and crescent rolls that have taken over my fridge. Sounds like a good plan to me.
Anyway, as I was cleaning, I came across a jar of blackberry spreadable fruit that hadn’t been used yet. Then the crescent rolls and Brie cheese round started yelling at me. You have experienced food talking to you, right? Ok, then moving on. Let’s just say a run to the grocery store for fresh blackberries was in my very near future. I couldn’t get the idea of these little cups out of my head. Never mind the calls that kept coming out of the fridge every time I got near. I just had to make them pronto!
The crescent cups with melted Brie cheese and the sweet fruit spread paired with a fresh chilled blackberry is absolutely amazing. I now understand all the posts and instagram pictures that I saw. It’s official…I love Brie!!!
