Ricotta Fig Crostini with Pecans & Gorgonzola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #fig #appetizer #recipe

A super simple little appetizer that’s beautiful, elegant and tastes amazing. It’s perfect with a glass of wine at the end of a hard day, or to serve to guests when you have little time to prepare.

It was a long day today. I woke up early and decided to do a little of the cooking tasks that have been on my list. I baked my friend Brad some cookies … he’s been helping with my daughter’s computer and I so appreciate his help. That probably was the best part of my day because it all went downhill from there.

I’m trying to stay positive and look at the bright side. Hey, I’m alive! I’m healthy. I have a great job, wonderful kids. I have fantastic family and friends. I have an abundance of delectable fresh foods to eat. Oh and my friend told me they have fresh figs at Costco and he’d pick some up for me tonight, so I’ll have those too! I’m just still a little emotionally raw from the funeral and my work day started out with a rousing argument. I could sure use a delightful little appetizer and a glass of wine tonight.
