Double Tomato Bruschetta & an Easy Breezy Cheeseball

The celebrating isn't quite over for 2011 so make sure you're prepared to entertain! Here are a couple super easy (and oh so delicious!) recipes for finishing out the year.
Double Tomato Bruschetta


6 Roma Tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, packed in oil (comes in a jar)
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup fresh basil, stems removed & diced
salt & pepper
french baguette (I used 2)
Shredded Mozzarella cheese

Add first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Allow to sit for 10 minutes, during which time you can preheat your oven to broil. Slice your baguette and place on a baking sheet. Broil baguettes until they are barely toasted. Remove from oven and add a spoonful of toppings to each. Sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven to broil until cheese is melted (not even 5 minutes). Done! Just like that!

Broiler warning: DON'T BURN THEM!

If you won't take my word for it, ratings and suggestions for this recipe can be found here.

Easy Breezy Cheese Ball

1 package shredded cheese
2- 8oz packages of cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup green pepper
2 tbsp minced onion
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 small jar pimentos
crackers of your choice

Seriously it's this easy people--

Mix everything together in a large bowl. Get messy, use your hands..

Roll it in a ball and put it in the middle of a serving dish.

Refrigerate, overnight if you have time. Add crackers. Done and done!

Happy Snacking!
