Looking for a simple party food to ring in the New Year? My Savory Chèvre Tartlets fits the bill. The recipe can be dressed up or served as it is. I plan on making these golden bite-sized goodies and serving them with my Roasted Eggplant Spread. You could also serve with a dollop of jam or fruit butter, if you dig savory and sweet bites.
Speaking of New Year’s, do you have any resolutions? I never do but am considering some for 2015. Either way you go at 2015 I wish you the best in savoring this moment we are given and thank you for following along on my 2014 local food journey. Let’s toast to creating the life we desire, find a way to be of service and be a bit kinder to ourselves.
