It was a rainy day at the cabin. So what did we decide to do? Cook up a storm, of course.

We decided to indulge in a full meal…appetizer (this post), entrée (shrimp boil, see our earlier post for the recipe), and dessert (stay tuned).

We can’t take all the credit for these delicious bites. It’s our mom’s signature appetizer. So here’s a shout out to you Mom! We have been helping her make these since we were eight years old, sitting at the cabin kitchen counter wearing our overalls (we were so stylish in the ‘90s). Even yesterday was a tag-team effort. Fourteen years later this bruschetta is still the best.

Happy double dipping!
