Fancy Your Cheese!

I’m all about easy entertaining and creating yummy, eye-pleasing food that are just plain ol’ simple.  Yesterday, I fancied my favorite cheese wheel with dried fruits, nuts, and honey. It was perfect for snacking throughout the day. Avoid the cooking and mess!

Difficulty level- SUPER easy peasy!

soft cheese2Start with your favorite cheese wheel. A soft cheese will work best for this purpose. I just recently discovered this brand over the holidays and it’s by far my FAV. This is coming from a person who is far from being a cheese expert.

Can you imagine serving this as a starter at your next party? A perfect edible centerpiece for everyone to gather around, chit chat, and nibble on. 

And for all who celebrate Chinese New Yr… “May the New Year bring you health, wealth, and happiness!”

Happy Monday!

  1. i actually thought wen clickin on the pic on tastespotting it was sweet cheesecake..Well I love this version even more!

  2. I absolutely LOVE cheese and I’ve never thought of doing this! I tried this cranberry cheese when my husband and I were visiting friends in Perth and it was divine. I wanted to buy one to bring home but I never found out where they bought it. Now I can recreate it using this technique. Thanks!

  3. Thank you for liking my pizza! :) And thank you also for following my blog.
    When I need another recipe to try, I will look through your blog. Thanks!

    So yummy, and your photography is gorgeous! With fruit + nuts + cheese, it’s really hard to go wrong. I also love Brie wrapped in a puff-pastry and baked – the cheese gets all warm and gooey.

    Wow, that looks amazing! Definitely something I must try… probably with Brie! :)

  6. I fancy my cheese! This would make an amazing starter (ultra gourmet – it could be topped with caviar)… and then a Pot Noodle for the main, and Beans on Toast for dessert. Depends if you want your dinner party to slump a bit in quality.

  7. Hmmm, what a heavenly combination: camembert, dried fruits and honey! Its also visually a beautiful idea. x

  8. Yep, definitely did an “omg” when I saw you were following my blog :) lol! Thanks for the follow! I look forward to your posts everyday and appreciate your creativity! You’ve definitely inspired me with some of my own photos.

    • Brandie- You are so funny! Thank you and I’m looking forward to your daily post! Have a great day! Best, Kellie
