Apple Asiago Prosciutto Bites

| November 12, 2012 | 51 Comments

Today is a very special day.

See, the lovely Rachel from Rachel Cooks is expecting her second child. Her little man is scheduled to make his debut in December. With her due date nearing, it’s time to celebrate with a surprise virtual baby shower. Surprise, Rachel! And congratulations.

As many of you know, I have two kids myself. They are the best of friends. Will, 7, and Paige, 5, wake up every morning and play together. They create elaborate games of the imagination, and have a blast. And almost every night, Will reads to Paige before bedtime. They help each other out (though sometimes that backfires a little … like when they “put away” laundry by stuffing it wherever they think I won’t find it). And whether it’s on the bus or at home, they are always looking out for each other. Of course they have their moments, but most of the time they are best buds. It’s amazing.

Rachel, having two is simply magical. You’re going to love it.

This adorable invitation was designed by Susan from Farmgirl Gourmet.

So, what am I bringing to the virtual party? Apple Asiago Prosciutto Bites — a fun and easy appetizer that’s a perfect little bite. Not only are these just right for a baby shower (virtual or otherwise), but they are a fantastic quick and easy appetizer for Thanksgiving too. Totally stress-free to prepare.

These little bites literally take no more than five or 10 minutes to make with three simple ingredients. Seriously super easy. You cut an apple into chunks. Wrap each piece into prosciutto. Skewer it with a piece of asiago. Done. It’s a flavorful little bite — salty, sweet and sharp all at once.

Enjoy — and congrats again, Rachel!

Be sure to drop by all the bloggers who are celebrating Rachel today. Everyone has cooked up something special:
