I just returned home from a fun blogging conference in Atlanta called Haven. I was able to meet many of my blogging and Instagram friends. It was really so much fun meeting and making new friends!
The Pink Clutch, Krystine Edwards, Dimples and Tangles, Dixie Delights, Honey Haven, Blue-i-Style, and Moi! My phone kept delaying for this photo, so it's a miracle we got one! :)
Dimples and Tangles, Scout & Nimble, The Chronicles of Home, The White Buffalo Styling Co, Cuckoo4Design, Bliss -at Home, Dwellings by Devore, and me
I brought home four little goodie bags of candy for my boys compliments of Scout & Nimble!
A darling lunch put on by TideOxi and Procter & Gamble
While at the conference, I told some of my friends about my homemade Caesar Salad Dressing with homemade croutons and everyone wanted the recipe so I thought I would start by sharing it here. This is part 1--The Croutons.
To begin, I use my electric knife and slice up some day old bread... sourdough, french, whatever white bread you have on hand will work. Slices should be cubed about 1" x 1"
Next, I put the cubes in a gallon ziplock bag and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil to lightly coat. Leaving air in the bag, zip it closed and shake the bag to coat the bread with the oil.
Cover a sheet pan with foil and spread the bread cubes on the pan in a single layer.
Lightly sprinkle with kosher salt.
Place in a preheated oven to 350* F. Bake for 20 minutes or until toasted.
Remove from oven and taste a few.... YUM! They should be crunchy all the way through.
Sprinkle croutons on top of salad or soup. Delicious recipes for both coming soon!!
