A Fresh Take on Crostini
Cheese on a crunchy piece of bread is a can't-go-wrong party food, and this version from Jennifer Smith, also known as The Traveling Chef, in Springfield, Missouri, is a keeper. You melt a small piece of Brie on a slice of baguette, then spoon fig jam on top and finish with half of a fresh fig and a sprig of pea shoot or watercress. It's fruity and creamy with a bit of freshness from the greens.
