    We are heading into one of my favorite seasons of the year – entertaining season!! Between Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and the new year, I can’t wait for more excuses to host friends and family in our new home. 

    Putting Together Caprese Skewers

    Since I’m a huge fan of last-minute casual get togethers, I love keeping my fridge and pantry stocked with versatile ingredients that can easily be transformed into something delicious. We always have a bag of Little Potato Company potatoes on hand so I decided to create a fast and easy appetizer to get you through the holiday season: Pesto Caprese Potato Skewers.

    Boiled potatoes are thread onto a skewer along with cherry tomatoes and creamy mozzarella balls. To take them to the next level, I drizzle the skewers with pesto right before serving.

    My freezer is always stocked with homemade pesto from the summer but store-bought also works great. If the pesto is a bit on the thicker side, you can easily thin it out in a little bowl with a splash of lemon juice or olive oil.
