Today our Editorial Director, Caitlin is sharing a fresh and easy appetizer that’s perfect for end-of-summer entertaining. “The secret to this recipe is whipping the goat cheese with a little cream — it makes it light and fluffy and takes only a little extra effort!”  Whip up a plate of these yummy crostinis, pour a glass of white wine and enjoy the final days of summer with your girl friends. Bonus: omit the bread for an equally tasty gluten-free option.
