Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs

September 15, 2017

Sorry for the extremely late recipe, but FIGS! I had to squeeze this recipe in of my new fav late summer/early fall snack: Creamy goat cheese stuffed in figs, topped with sweet walnuts.

Life’s been… kind of all over the place. Firstly, I’m honestly feelin’ a career/identity crisis of what kind of profession I should keep up with. There are soo many things I want to do, people and friends I’d like to see, and places to visit and explore,  yet not enough time that’s (life, I know) And I’ve been preparing for a trip to NYC next week.

. Secondly, I have a trip to NYC and soon after, a week trip to Barcelona and Stockholm.  Meanwhile, I have another collab. with AutoCAD. Any advice on time management?

 

Meanwhile, please enjoy these simple but fancy shmancy lookin’  roasted figs smothered in creamy goat cheese, topped with a walnut crumble….
