Winter Charcuterie Board

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been known to make a mean charcuterie board. While Alec creates 90% of the recipes we share, this is the one thing I am going to take 100% credit for. Mayyyybe it has something to do with the fact that I don’t have to actually cook anything and it’s really all about the styling (and of course the cheese).

Charcuterie boards are the staple to any gathering year round. My favorite part about them is that the possibilities are endless!
