charcuterie board

Fancy Boards: Vol 1

If you haven’t attempted a charcuterie board, what are you waiting for, love?! #BOARDit & they will EAT!

Over the holidays I was the queen of transporting boards to parties. Shout out to Maegan Brown #TheBakerMama. The spread below is the fancy board I took to my MIL’s Christmas Eve Brunch. My theme was hearty biscuits with all the fix-ins.

Can I tell ya a little secret…I have NEVER made biscuits! I know, don’t judge me. Being from West (By God) Virginia, this is a sin. Feeling overzealous, I figured I’d make up for lost time and do two different kinds. The first was an Everything Bagel Biscuit curtesy of Daphne Oz. And the second was a Hot Honey & Thyme Biscuit from the masterminds, Erin Patinkin & Agatha Kulaga of Ovenly. They were devoured, and obviously made the cut for Varsity status. #FutureBrunch #AllStar

Mongolian Beef Skewers

Almost Mongolian Beef Satay, Broccolini with mushrooms & whipped potatoes

When I feel inspired to try a new recipe, I turn to my favorite cookbook authors; Ina, Giada, and Daphne, and commit to WOW factor! #ShowUp&ShowOut

These beef skewers by Daphne Oz did just that. Her cookbook is AH-MAZING! With her guiding light, I have successfully crushed many a brunch and family gathering. If you don’t have this gem, RUN DON’T WALK!
