We’re putting a Mediterranean spin on bruschetta and here to show us how it’s done is Chef Deborah Walker.

1. Slice baguettes thinly (1/2 inch) at a 45 degree angle. Brush each slice with olive oil. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake until golden brown. Set aside.
2. In a small pan, saute onions and garlic in 4 tablespoons olive oil for 5 minutes over medium-low heat.
3. Combine all ingredients except for the fresh basil and baguette slices in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 36 hours.

We first told you about homes for hope back in December. The folks from Bay to Beach Builders were building a new home, with all the bells and whistles, to be sold. All of the proceeds from that sale will be donated to Homes for Hope – an organization that makes small business loans to help pull people out of poverty around the world. We have some good news to report. The home has been completed and it has been sold. Earlier today, they held a ribbon cutting ceremony. Sean was there to find out how much money was raised and how many people it can help.
