First of the Month Recipe: Gorgonzola and Grape Bruschetta

Before I moved to Italy cooking was somewhat of a chore for me … I was cooking for one, it wasn’t fun and I was trapped in an endless cycle of repeated recipes and take out (more on this later).

Now that I am here in the bel paese, I figure I can spice things up. And who better to spice things up with, than my caro marito?

Ahem.

You see, the truth is that even in the gastronomical capital of the world, well-meaning couples can fall into the routine of eating the same thing. Over and over. And over. Again.

(See? I told you you’d hear that again!)

So, starting tomorrow my husband and I are taking the *No Repeated Recipe Challenge (that we created ourselves) and are vowing not to repeat recipes for the whole month of September.

To kick things off, we challenged each other to a bruschetta “bake” off and while I’m not gonna tell you who won (cause, uhm, that would be mean) I will tell you that it is my recipe featured today.

So without further fanfare, I present to you …

Gorgonzola and Grape Bruschetta

Grape and Gorgonzola Bruschetta

Ingredients:
– Homemade Italian bread (sliced)

  1. What a tasty recipe! Sounds easy, too.

    I had the exact same problem when I moved to Italy, although my “cara fidanzata” is the one spicing things up as opposed to a spouse (for now!)

    …I think we’ll give this one a try 🙂

    Good deal! Let me know what you and your fidanzata think about this!
