Cheese Board Tips

When there’s any kind of get together or potluck, I like to offer to bring a cheese board. I often get asked, “how did you do that?” The answer I always give is, “I don’t know, I just threw everything on a big plate,” which is really the truth, but I realized it’s really unhelpfulRead more
