If you’d asked me two years ago if I would ever make a recipe using figs, you would have heard a resounding no from me. I was beyond intimidated by this gorgeous fruit. Even though they’re pretty to look at and have intrigue written all over them, I couldn’t bring myself to picking up a few. And then Costco happened on a Monday morning. Proudly displaying case upon case of the most gorgeous figs I’d ever laid eyes on. Just like that I grabbed a case, made my way to the register, and started this figgy relationship.

Which also means that I have to thank you. Because none of this would happen or could be possible without you. Cheesy, but oh so true.
