How to make the perfect Charcuterie board + Our favorite summer wines

Happy Monday Ladies!

Who else is excited for Bachelorette Monday?!? I’ll be honest, I’m not a huuuuge fan of the season so far. I feel like the guys are so sub par and seriously how has the model guy not been sent home yet?! Not to mention the constant upbringing of the brutal way she was dumped on the last season (let the girl move on! lol!). But it’s like a bad train wreck, we cant help but stare. Whether you’re into this season, or not, its the perfect excuse to open up a bottle of wine (as if we needed one right? 😉 ) and have a few good laughs with your girlfriends.

I love throwing together Charcuterie boards together for nights like these. They are the easiest appetizer to put together when entertaining (or if your like me, sometimes they turn into your dinner too, oops). They are so effortless and simple, yet look so stylish and put together! A fool proof way to make sure you cover all your bases is to be sure to include each of the following categories: sliced meats, a few cheeses (goat cheese and brie are my personal favs), something sweet such as pears, apples, figs or honey, something spreadable (I did baked brie with spicy strawberry jam inside), & something crunchy (crackers, preztels, pickles, almonds, etc.). You can also include some tart accents like spicy mustard.

I picked up this wood board from our local Home Goods for under $10! I have also seen similar style at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, World Market, and Target! I also love this chalkboard one from World Market as well.

And of course the most important pairing to any Charcuterie board… the WINE! While this could take up it’s own blog post in itself, my three go-to wine selections are Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, and Chateau St. Michelle Chardonnay. All three bottles are budget friendly, can be found at Target and are bottles that I drink on the regular (maybe a little too much:)).

Baked Brie recipe pictured:

  • 1 can of Phillsbury crescent rolls (original)

  • Brie cheese

  • Jam of your choice (I used spiced strawberry)

On parchment paper, roll out the crescent roll bread. Place Brie cheese in the center. Top with jam and fold the dough into the center of the cheese. Bake for 10 min at 375 degrees or until bread is golden brown. It’s thaaat easy!

Prosecco Pours: Frosé All Day

Happy Monday, babes! We hope you are all having a great 4th of July weekend/week. This whole holiday on a Tuesday has been really throwing us off! But hey, we’re not in the office, so we can’t complain ;)!

Much like the rest of you, we’ve been obsessing over rosé this summer. So when I stumbled upon frosé, I knew I had to share it with you ladies. This frosé recipe is incredibly easy, and it’s just as delicious as it looks. The worst part about making this frozen beverage is waiting for the rosé to freeze. I recommend throwing it in the freezer first thing in the morning, so it’s ready by the time you’re ready for a cocktail.
