Winter Fruit and Honey Toast

Texas gets really weird this time of year.

The weather, that is.

The first week of February was annoying, but par for the course. It was in the 80s on Monday, and by Friday we had a chance of snow. I understand that this always happens, as I've been living in Texas for most of my life, but I never get used to it. Like the time when I lived in Lubbock and all evidence of a morning blizzard was gone by noon. Just, weird.

So, I needed something in my life that was going to look pretty and taste yummy. Y'know, to deal with all the crazy change. This winter inspired fruit and honey toast was exactly what I needed.

Six simple ingredients are all that is needed for this easy toast recipe:
  • Brioche bread
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Blackberries
  • Blood orange
  • Honey
  • Granola

I love the balance of the tart blackberries and tangy oranges mixed with the sweetness of the cheese and bread. The granola and honey are the perfect ribbon to tie everything together. It's such an easy treat, but one that will turn a gloomy morning from boring to bright.
