One of my FAVORITE summer meals or appetizers is Bruschetta, especially when we are able to create it using fresh ingredients from our own garden.
My husband is the chef when it comes to Bruschetta and I have to admit he makes the best I have ever had. I could eat this every night and skip the main course and believe it or not all five of our kids would agree to it being one of their favorite recipes.
