saturday night crostinis

current drink of choice: pear cider; current background noise: frozen planet (first episode – highly-recommended; the footage is really impressive).

my recent attempt at cooking has ranged from mediocre to completely inedible, so i was happy when my crostini appetizer turned out pretty delicious last night.  the recipe is really easy and takes only 10-15 minutes to prepare.  make sure you buy a fresh french baguette and toast it in the oven for a few minutes before topping with the following:

1. sprinkle of olive oil, mozzarella, tomato, and basil

2. spoonful of marscapone, honey, and walnuts that have been toasted in the oven for about 5-8 minutes [full disclosure: this recipe is inspired by a crostini i had at almar in dumbo]

i know these are really basic, but any accomplishment in my journey to be food network-worthy is exciting!
