F2

I had pregustators (got to use the new word I learned this week!) for my second “F” dish, as some of us gals got together for drinks and dinner!  I tried out a brie recipe made with a topping of dried figs, pistachios and honey!!  This dish will be making frequent appearances for wine night!!fig IMG_2043

Here’s the recipe: http://www.bhg.com/recipe/warm-brie-with-fig-and-pistachio-tapenade/

FIG FUN FACT:  1/2 cup of figs has as much calcium as a 1/2 cup of milk!

I also picked up some “F” wines for our feast

How can you pass up a wine called “Fancy Pants”?!?  It was actually rather tasty!!  Flipflop Pinot was less impressive, but will do in a pinch for a cheap wine!

Finally I did find a recipe for “healthy” fudge!  Coconut oil, cocoa, peanut butter, honey and vanilla!  Satisfyingly sweet and chocolaty without all the guilt!

FUDGE FUN FACT:  It is believed that the name “fudge” came about when someone was actually making caramel and fudged it up!
