Are you throwing a party soon?

No? Don’t worry, neither am I. In fact, I think I’ve had people over our house outside of a holiday a total of 2 times in the past 3 years we’ve lived there. Super lame.

Here’s the thing about these, while they’d rock your guests’ faces off, they also make for a really good “I just want to eat a fancy finger food” kind of appetizer for a wild weeknight by yourself. You know you have those nights.

They also work as a great 4pm snack while you’re stuck on a conference call that spends 1 of the 2 hours trying to get everyone logged into a new software system. Logged in. Not even using it, just logging in. Instead of losing my cool at the incompetence, I made crostini while on speaker phone.

I call that progress on the whole patience thing.

I know spring doesn’t exactly scream rosemary. You’re probably wanting to shove basil in your face and all of those other fresh springy herbs you’ve been deprived of the last 5 or so months and not really thinking of rosemary.

Indulge me with this though. Seriously, it’s worth it. Sautéed apples + rosemary just smacks you in the face with amazingness from the smell and taste. The combined flavors are savory, tart and sweet all wrapped up in one perfect bite.

Hour 2 of the call was spent learning how to use the software and simultaneously eating half a baguette’s worth of crostini. There are two reasons the mute button is my best friend when working from home, a dog that goes ballistic at the first sound of a delivery man coming up the driveway and my inability to get through any sort of conference call without needing to stuff my face full of food. This was definitely one of the more tasty conference call creations.

Yield: 3-4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

This apple and goat cheese crostini with rosemary is savory, tart and sweet all wrapped up in one bite.


  • 1/2 whole wheat baguette, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 granny smith apple, diced
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 1/2 tablespoon rosemary, chopped + extra for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • salt & pepper
  • 5 tablespoons goat cheese
  • honey for drizzling


  1. Saute apples, raisins, rosemary, salt & pepper with olive oil over medium heat until softened and raisins begin to plump up. Add 1 tablespoon of water while cooking if mixture gets too dry (this will also help raisins plump).
  2. In the meantime, toast the baguette slices until just starting to turn golden brown around edges.
  3. Spread goat cheese on baguette slices once toasted.
  4. Spoon sauteed apple mixture on top of baguettes.
  5. Drizzle with honey and finish with more chopped rosemary for garnish.
