I’m so excited to introduce one of my sisters, Nicole, as a contributor to my blog from time to time. Nicole is a busy mom to three kids in Minneapolis, MN, and recently gave birth to twin boys. In all of her spare time, she hosts family dinners, and drums up a variety of fun dishes that delight anyone who joins her table. Nicole has a lot of talents and I am excited for you to get to know her.
Hi! My name is Nicole. One of my favorite things to do for my family is to bring everyone together for a good meal. Let’s talk holidays. My absolute favorite appetizer to pull together for any occasion is a cheese board. It’s versatile and everyone can find something they like. I have one out anytime we have guests over, and intend on putting one together for Christmas Eve. Here is my basic, fool-proof formula for putting together a beautiful spread, that you can use for your Christmas or New Years festivities!
1) Choose three different varieties of cheese. I like to do one soft (brie, goat or Boursin is my favorite), one sharp (blue, smoked gouda, gruyere) and one mild (mild cheddar, mozzerella).
