The Cognac Crostini Connection

So it started with my sister having a meal at a restaurant, after which she just couldn't get the fantastic bread out of her head. Then came the determined attempt to replicate the taste, which led to the little experiment in my humble kitchen.

The result? Cognac-flavoured Crostini, which have travelled round the world! My heart sings whenever fellow bloggers and friends enjoy something as much as I do :)

These talented, lovely ladies have taken the recipe and made it their own ... do I sound like a judge on American Idol? LOL! Take a look at their gorgeous eats:

~ Monique of La Table de Nana: Cognac and Crostinis

~ Linda of How to Cook a Wolf: Little T's Crostini ... With Vodka

~ Kate of A Spoonful of Thyme: Crispy Cognac Crostini

~ Michelle of Big Black Dog: French Bread and a Delicious Brandy-flavoured Crostini

And ... not forgetting my sister, who sparked off this entire Crostini Connection! :) Cheers!
