Although its important and necessary to celebrate the big and meaningful achievements, moments and occasions in life, we also treasure the small and simple successes. Which is why, on an otherwise ordinary Tuesday, I carefully and lovingly roasted cherries and prepared Fresh Cherry Bruschetta, while waiting for my husband to come home from work, so we could recognize the anniversary of when we became engaged, 16 years ago.


fresh cherry bruschetta


Toss 3 cups pitted and halved cherries with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a few fresh thyme sprigs, season with coarse salt.

Bake at 425F until the juices begin to caramelize, about 17 minutes. Spread 10 ounces of room-temperature goat cheese among 12 slices of toasted baguette. Spoon on the fruit.
