Rainbow Grazing Board for Saint Patrick's Day

Rainbow Grazing Board for Saint Patrick's Day

Have you ever made a grazing board? It's one of my favorite ways to serve a NO-cook, fun and interactive meal to my family, whatever the occasion or celebration! You have probably seen the cheese and charcuterie board I did last month for Valentine's Day , so this month I thought I'd  create a fun rainbow colored grazing board, which would be perfect for celebrating St. Patrick's Day at home! This grazing board looks SO pretty and is packed with all sorts of yummy fruits and vegetables, making it super healthy too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Valentine's Day Cheese and Charcuterie Board

Valentine's Day Cheese and Charcuterie Board

Grazing boards are still as popular as ever!  I've seen (and made myself) quite a few variations on the classic cheese and charcuterie boards - I've made  vegetables grazing boards , chocolate grazing boards , brunch boards , and even a Taco Board ! But the classic, savory cheese and charcuterie is what my family likes best. So for this Valentine's Day, I lovingly put together a "pretty in pink " (and red ๐Ÿ˜) cheese and charcuterie board filled with yummy treats to celebrate love day at home!

Camembert Cheese Fondue Board

Camembert Cheese Fondue Board

Winter rhymes with cozy, comforting food. And a cheese fondue sure ticks both boxes! A few years ago, I shared my recipe for a traditional French Savoyard Cheese Fondue here on the blog . It's the perfect cheese fondue recipe for entertaining!  But this year, I was inspired to re-vamp and make my cheese fondue a little lighter and easier to prepare. Hence this delicious Camembert cheese fondue, baked in its own box and served on a board of rainbow-colored veg!

Grazing boards have been so popular and trending on Pinterest for a couple of years now, and I can totally understand why! They are so quick and easy to put together, and are always a crowd-pleaser. Hence today's chocolate grazing board, which turns out to be the perfect dessert or treat to serve during the Thanksgiving festivities!

If you've been following the blog for while, you probably noticed how much I looooove a grazing board or cheese platter for any parties I host. They're so easy to put together and a real hit with adults and kids alike! Since the Super Bowl is coming up, I thought I'd share a super fun to make appetizer for you to add to your grazing board or cheese platters! Oh, and did I mention it's football shaped, AND that we made a video? ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ˜

Christmas Wreath Cheese Platter Appetizer

Cheese boards and cheese platters have been trending now for a couple of years, and I'm not surprised. They're a no-bake, quick and easy to assemble appetizer that packs the wow factor for any party! For my Thanksgiving celebrations , you probably saw that   I served my cheese board with fruits and seasonal produce for a "harvest" bounty sort of feel.  But for my Christmas cheese platter, I wanted a simpler appetizer that was also very festive and even easier to assemble than my traditional, full-on cheese board.

A Cheese and Beer Tasting Party

A Cheese and Beer Tasting Party

Father's Day is this Sunday, and if you need easy, no-cooking-involved, no-fuss but totally delicious ideas to celebrate dad, then this Cheese and Beer Tasting party is IT! I mean, I don't know many dads who'd pass up the chance to taste beer on his special day (or any day...). Or cheese. Or cheese AND beer together!  Cheese and beer might sound heavy for summer, but we kept the cheeses light, serving it alongside fresh and seasonal produce, all washed down with more refreshing, summery types of beers.

Our Quick & Easy End of Summer Patio Party

Our Quick & Easy End of Summer Patio Party

Summer is coming to an end, boo! And as much as I've been trying to resist the transition into Fall, school for my kiddos starts next week, so there's no denying it any longer. Double boo! But to lessen the blow, and make sure we still make the most of the hot days - yes, it's still 40 deg C in the shade 'round these parts; we celebrated last weekend with an end of summer patio party !  It's our way to enjoy the fine produce on offer at the end of season, and relax before the school routine finally kicks in.

A Mediterranean Inspired Party

A Mediterranean Inspired Party

The south of France has its advantages, mainly regarding food; which in my book is already a great start for any dinner party! Especially the al fresco ones where we get to enjoy the glorious weather and scenery ;) But apart from the great food, the Mediterranean lifestyle oozes simplicity and charm, and therefore makes for a great dinner party theme this time of year!
