Give Away Time! I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Host a Warmed Blue Cheese and Apricot Crostini Give Away!

Add caption
Toast is pretty delicious isn't it?  I've done a lot of thinking about toast recently, especially during and after the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Toast and Tweet party last night on Twitter.  Delicious bread, gently warmed til the outside gives a satisfying crunch when bitten into it, topped with any myriad of toppings, the heat from the bread gently warming those as well. I gotta say- toast sounds pretty darn delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

If I'm going to be accurate here, really, my love affair with toast began a few weeks ago.  It all began when I was invited to compete in I Can't Believe It's Not Butter's Toast Ambassador contest.  I loved coming up with the recipe for my Warmed Blue Cheese and Apricot Crostini, and I have to say- testing out the end product wasn't such a chore either.  My hard "work" paid off, and my recipe was selected as one of the finalists in the Toast Ambassador program!  I was flown on down to NYC to compete in the contest, and happily made my creation in the Unilever Test Kitchen.  Though I didn't get to win top prize for my little crostinis, I did walk away with the pure joy of competition and the honor of being a finalist!
