Beach fires dwindle, the days grow shorter, and we understand the end of summer is upon us.
Oh no — say it ain’t so! This summer saw more than its share of rainy days and temperatures below average, our consolation being the lakes and farmers are loving it.
But beautiful days are here at last. And as the days grow short, I spend as much time savoring the waning sun as possible, avoiding the kitchen with easy recipes. I’ve blogged quite a bit (as has every food blogger on the planet) about the glories of caprese salads and appetizers highlighting the tomato at this time of the year. But I’ve found them difficult to serve as an appetizer to guests, so in just a few minutes, I made these two-bite canapés as a pre-dinner treat.
