I would like to pause for a moment and point out the giant wheel o’ Brie cheese my Husband picked up for me so I could whip up this recipe. Can I just say John knows the way to my heart. He had the cutest giggle when he handed me the brie. He told me he knows how much I love it so he figured why get a little wedge when he could get a giant wheel of it and make me smile. Oh how I love this man.

Ok back to our Crostini with Brie and Roasted Garlic…..
