Is there anything in the world better than flaky puff pastry and melty delicious cheese?
Yes. There is. A Pinterest Party.
On Superbowl Sunday we were invited to a Pinterest party. Football for the guys and intense Pinterest conversation for the gals. It was right up my alley.
My Pinterest boards are full of delicious looking foods. I follow a number of my favorite food bloggers who pin recipes from their favorite food bloggers making my feed 99.99% full of yum. I’ve actually made several recipes from Pinterest; a couple dozen maybe, and generally I’ve found the results to be pretty good. Sometimes things need a bit of a tweak or a change in measurement or method, but all in all I’ve been pleased with most of my Pinterest attempts.
Um, yum. That’s just gorgeous.
This recipe was no different. Nothing to change, nothing to add, nothing to tweak. But, I’d expect nothing else from Joy of Joy the Baker. I’ve stumbled across her blog on several occasions, and am always impressed by her decadent photography, but I’m just not much of a baker. I prefer cooking, and generally leave the sweet treats alone.
I’d pinned these yummy little bites several months ago and they sat, unloved and unmade, on my “Party Food” board. I’d decided I was going to bring a sweet and a savory to the party, and these fit into the latter category perfectly.
Mr. Zoom stepped in to help with both recipes on Sunday afternoon which was such a treat. The kids were asleep and we had a small window of time to get the two recipes prepared and cooked before we had to leave the house. Mr. Zoom has several “signature” dishes (namely a delicious lasagna and a killer burger) but generally he stays well out of the kitchen (I’m bossy). I must say, it was SO nice having him help! We had fun figuring out how to cut the square and debating the best way to insert the sticks. I’d invite him back.
If you are looking for a sweet Valentines appetizer or something to serve when friends come over, these are a great bet. Perfect morning, noon, or night, you just can’t go wrong with melty brie and sweet jam in a flaky pastry pouch.
