Galentine's Cheeseboard for Three

Originally, this was going to be a sweet and romantic Valentine’s Cheeseboard for Two. But, when I shared what I was making with my two best friends from college they replied with “oohs” and “ahhs” and “I want some of that!”

It was then that I realized that no, this isn’t the perfect plate for a pair, but instead, is the ideal treat for three! Three best friends. Three gal pals. Three galentines.

Cheeseboard Recipe

What is a galentine, you ask? Put quite simply, a galentine is a girlfriend you love.  A sister you chose. A pal and a confidant, if I can borrow a phrase from one of the greatest television shows of all time.

Holiday Cheeseboards – 3 Ways (& a class!)

We didn’t get to fry a turkey for Thanksgiving.

Holiday Cheeseboards - 3 Ways

Between Seth hunting and me working and all of the shuffling around that comes from having in-laws who have in-laws – we just couldn’t make Thanksgiving at our house work.

Holiday Cheeseboards - 3 Ways

So! We regrouped, reconfigured, and reorganized. And are now going to be hosting a Christmas party/open house/Festivus instead!

I really love hosting gatherings at our home. I’d rather have a cavity filled than leave our house for a social engagement, but the tables are totally turned when I’m hosting the party. I love having people over! Milling around, making drinks, munching on snacks! It’s the best! I like decorating the house and doting on guests. As evidenced by Cheeselandia last year and my podcast-themed birthday party this year. Call me crazy, but I even like the clean up afterward, too.

Mulled Wine (& Monday)

Hello and happy Monday!

Is it too early to tell tails? …cocktails, that is?! (Oy, I’m mad at myself for that one.)

I feel like no. Because I spent most of yesterday thinking it was today and now IDK what I’m feeling like today.

Except…maybe a glass of mulled wine. That might feel nice.

Cornbread Stuffing (& a Turkey Day Recipe Round-Up!)

Sides may be the most important part of a meal for me. They can make or break the main course. Elevating and uplifting it or dragging it down to the bottomless depths.

Cornbread Stuffing Recipe

Luckily, this cornbread stuffing does the former.

It will complement the savory bird at the center of the table, being sturdy enough to stand in the place of a traditional stuffing. Or, it will delightfully contrast a tart cranberry sauce, adding just a hint of sweetness from a generous amount of cornbread. It’s enough of a departure to feel adventurous, but not so outlandish that your guests are unwilling to try it.

Cornbread Stuffing Recipe

In a word – it’s perfect.

I’ve got quite a few recipes that are perfect for your Thanksgiving day and dinner needs! Let’s discuss them, shall we?
