a light dinner


Hello everyone,  here is one of my fave recipes that I love. What is there to not like about Bruchetta, (Italian pronunciation bru╦łsketta.) an easy to make antipasto (starter dish) recipe that has it's origins in Italy. Originally grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with oliveoil and salt. Today there are numerous variaitions consisting of toppings of tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese.

cheers to the sixth birthday of my blog and how to drink champagne like an expert




Hello my lovelies, it's my sixth year blogging and I am happy to be still here. I have blogged through happy times and tramatic times (as you know) and I am still inspired by beautiful things, people and events. I hope you continue to stop by The Girl at the Beach and I have to say a big thank you to my biggest fans, as I am not sure where I would be without you. So CHEERS to more loveliness, and more inspiration from the beach to you in the coming year.
