Hi.

Welcome to The New Hostess! My name is Lucy.

 I love to document my adventures in food, entertaining, home design, and travel. 

I created this site with the hopes of inspiring everyday tastemakers by posting easy recipes and entertaining ideas. I hope you enjoy!

Cook Simple. Share Often. 

Roasted Tomato and Goat Cheese Crostini

Happy Friday, everyone! 

An easy appetizer to serve at gatherings big and small that leaves a little room for creativity! (Think combinations of mushrooms, prosciutto, feta, figs, etc. etc.) I chose to keep things simple this past weekend while visiting my sister in DC.  For a few of us, all it took was a baguette, a few tomatoes, good goat cheese, a little olive oil, garlic, salt + pepper and fresh basil.
