Light & Tasty Artichoke Crostini

"This appetizer is wonderful when vine-ripened tomatoes are in season. You can also spoon the mixture over grilled chicken or fish for a nice change."

  1. Mmmm, I love brushetta, especially with artichokes. I couldn't resist rubbing a garlic clove on the bread before toasting, and added just about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Parmesan would have been good too. Thank you!
  2. Loved the addition of the artichoke hearts to a traditional bruschetta recipe. Great party food.
  3. Fantastic wine appetizer. It has a flair, but compliments food and appeals to an array of tastes. I added proscuitto to a a few of them to mix it up - and it was a great touch. I also topped it with freshly grated parmesean, which was a great addition. Thanks for a great addition to my next wine tasting event!


I am lucky enough to be "living the good life". I have the most wonderful husband and two terrific teenage daughters. We reside in Central Pennsylvania where we have the luck of having four full seasons. Between my husband and myself, we have two full time jobs, three businesses and one part time job. We are very busy, but try to take it easy when we can and enjoy the wonderful life we have been blessed with. Future plans include moving to an inherited 45 acre farm in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. This will occur if and when our DD's leave the nest. We love to travel and have enjoyed seeing all of North America and a large portion of the United States together. Since discovering Zaar, I have to say my life has become more flavorful! I have learned that it's easier than I thought to have an organized, well-planned and yet creative and fun kitchen! I love the features of Zaar, but especially enjoy the people. I have become addicted to the forums and now love taking photos of the food I prepare. I am officially a Zaar junky! I've also started taking pictures of most of the recipes I prepare...Here are some of the pics I've taken of dishes that are available at Zaar: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="" height="360" width="480"><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="¤t=442caae0.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a> I love most foods. My only dislikes are green peppers and coffee...weird, huh? Been trying to eat and cook healthier for the children and to help control DH's high cholesterol. I anything cheesy, salty and crunchy. Needless to say I dream about nachos in my sleep! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a>
