Cheese Boards

cheese board

After getting a new camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR,  I knew that I really wanted to recreate some of my past photos. Especially this cheese board that I posted a couple weeks ago. I found the perfect cutting board last month to use for my cheese boards or veggies platters. It’s small, but substantial enough to hold quite a bit of food. The cutting board is made from acacia wood and it seems quite sturdy, but not heavy or bulky at all.

I used some of the same types of food in this cheese board but there are a couple of different things. It’s a perfect snack when entertaining and I love the mix of different meats, cheeses, crackers, and fruit. I like to keep it pretty simple but the ideas are endless. In case you’re interested in replicating this at home here is a list of what I used.

    • Alouette Double Cream Brie
    • Columbus Meats Prosciutto Mozzarella Panino
    • Boar’s Head Havarti Dill Cheese
    • Mario Green Olives
    • Driscoll’s Raspberries
    • Sliced French Bread
    • Target Market Pantry Colby Jack Cheese
    • Target Water Crackers
    • Applegate Salami
    • Pretty Lady Grapes
    • Optional rosemary sprigs for garnish

Veggie Platter


Summer is finally coming to an end but the temps here in the south are still quite warm. What better way to cool off a little bit in this heat, than with a vegetable platter! Veggie sticks, crackers, and french bread are perfect for dipping in your favorite hummus or spread. You can include some fruit in for good measure too. Platters like this are perfect for a large crowd or you can make them on a smaller scale if you’re just snacking by yourself.
