Cheese Please!

So I LOVE cheese...and most of my friends love cheese. We love smelly cheese, we love soft cheese we do not discriminate! My favorite dinner party "munchie" is always cheese. Pair it with apples, honey, nuts, crackers...the possibilities are endless! Here are some of the cheese plates I adore. Enjoy!

Bird is the Word!

While we're on the topic of holidays...I figured I would share my favorite turkey recipe, I mean...what's not to love about Thanksgiving?? Family...check. Turkey...check. Tryptophan induced coma...definite check!
I tried this recipe for the first time last year at Christmaka and I can promise that this will be the juiciest bird you ever had! 
See recipe here: Food Network
I used an 18 lb turkey and it was fresh...not sure if that makes a difference?

Long overdue

Well hi there! It's been....a very long time. It seems that my summer has got me all distracted and by summer I mean Pinterest! If you haven't heard of it you must check it out. 
In addition to Pinterest...I'm engaged!!

Wanted to share the news and a little piece of the wedding planning thus far. I asked my bridesmaids to "come away with me" to mexico with a message in a bottle.
You can find these bottles here: Corked Bottle, the rest was all DIY. Sand was from Michael's and the paper was printed off my computer. The scroll inside says "will you be my bridesmaid"! Obviously LOL

Here it is!! Enjoy :)
