My ex husband used to say I could'nt follow a recipe to save my life. I always put my own little spin on things.

Here I am using :

Chevre Goat Cheese spiked with a little bit of rosemary from the garden

I also made a dipping sauce

6 Tb Honey

3-4 Tb Balsamic

Fresh Rosemary

Lemon Zest

I also used a Rosemary Sprig as a brush to apply sauce to figs

When Grilling figs I actually used tooth picks and placed them in my Jalapeno roasting grill rack shaped like to Great State of Texas.
