Our Cookbook Blog

Our Cookbook ~ What We Cook, is a compilation of every recipe we (Janice and Carissa) cook - recipes from our cookbook collections, our recipe boxes, and our heads! We set up this blog for friends and family who have our cookbook to let them see pictures we post of the recipes in the book, and also for us to note any corrections, revisions, or additions to What We Cook. We encourage people who are cooking our recipes to let us know how the recipes turn out and any suggestions they might want to make.

In addition, we will be sharing some of our new recipes (along with pictures) that are not in our cookbook. We hope you will help us out and test recipes and give us your comments.

Basil & Tomato Feta Bruschetta ~ page 14

Every year I forget how much I love this, until summer rolls around again and I am looking for a way to use up the tomatoes I grow! Typically, bruschetta is an appetizer, but I often use it as a side dish along with a simple meat.
Bruschetta can seem different depending on what kind of bread you use. Here I am using a chipati bread from a bakery, split, toasted, and brushed with olive oil. But many other types bakery loaves are good also. I made this recipe 2 days in row, and on the second day I used a sliced whole grain loaf. I also had a strip of crisp bacon left over from breakfast, so I crumbed it and topped my bruschetta with bacon, and it was wonderful!
