This post is inspired by “Daily Candy”, a daily enewsletter I subscribe to that has content on fashion, food, and fun. Check them out at Brides-to-be, they also have a site for wedding planning,

Check out these freaking adorable chocolate truffle cones from FireLilly. Picture them as part of a dessert buffet at a wedding, as wedding favors, or on each person’s place setting as dessert for a dinner party. Totally pretty…check them out at


Grilling out yesterday evening was awesome and lovely, so lovely. It was 85 degrees which equals bbq perfection. The pecorino romano/apple/crostini was very good. I don’t typically like the blend of sweet and savory flavors together but many people do. Erik (my hubby) really liked it and so did the other guests. The flavor of the pecorino romano cheese with fig and apple really pair well together.

Here is the recipe (inspired by a recipe from Giada’s Kitchen, New Italian Favorites). I changed the recipe up a bit and below incorporates the dish as I made it, which is slightly different in the Giada’s book.
Pecorino Romano with Apples and Fig Jam
1 jar of store bought fig spread
1 granny smith apple
1 baguette (I used multi-grain), sliced
Olive oil
Pecorino Romano cheese, shaved into thin slices
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drizzle olive oil onto the bread the toast in the oven for about 7 minutes. Quarter the apple and slice off the cores. Cut each quarter into 6 thin slices.
Top each toast slide with fig jam, a slice of apple, and a piece of shaved Pecorino Romano. Transfer toasts to a platter and serve.

I’m Jenna, the writer/creator behind Eat Drink Pretty.  I live in Minnesota with my awesome husband Erik, beautiful and sweet daughter Juliet and crazy kitty Kody.  By day, I work in advertising.

Eat Drink Pretty started as a lifestyle blog focused on cooking, baking and entertaining/party planning.  You will find a ton of recipes and lots of fun and inspirational real parties.

When my baby girl came along, things changed a bit (funny how that happens when you become a parent.)  I wouldn’t necessarily say that it’s now a mom blog…but some days it sort of is.  You’ll see lots of photos of my sweet girl, and snippets of our life, which still fortunately includes quite a bit of cooking and entertaining.

Please enjoy Eat Drink Pretty and don’t hesitate to email me with any questions, comments, feedback to

I am a bit of an Instagram addict and can be found @eatdrinkpretty.  I’m also a pinning fool on Pinterest.  You can also find me on Twitter or “like on Facebook.
