This is a great appetizer to include for Thanksgiving because there is usually something for everyone on it. Plus, it doesn’t take a lot of prep. You are just basically shopping for the ingredients. Today I’m going to walk you through how I organize a charcuterie and cheese board.

You see, for the last several years Aaron and I have hosted our families for Thanksgiving. With some thoughtful planning, we have been able to have a mostly stress-free Thanksgiving.

It has been absolutely crazy around our house lately.Ā We have been trying to figure out thingsĀ for our move, started the process of listing our current house, and just dealing with all of the end of the school year stuff.

Quick Tomato Sauce

Quick Tomato Sauce

Let’s have a chat about tomato sauce. Did you know that many store bought brands are loaded with sugar? Just take a look at the list of ingredients and you will see for yourself. It’s really crazy to think about, and it’s really not necessary to have so much sugar in your pastaĀ sauce!

After watching the film I bet you will start looking atĀ all of your food labels a bit more closely!

Nut & Seed Granola

Nut & Seed Granola

I absolutely loveĀ granola! I have made several different kinds of granola in the past, and have tried several from grocery stores. This, however, is the granola I always come back to though. It is my absolute favorite! I mean, how could you go wrong with oats, nuts, seeds, and maple syrup?! By roughly chopping up raw almonds it gives this granola great texture and crunch. It also isn’t overly sweet which helps balance the overall flavor.
