At Here for Her, we have created a space where women can learn from incredible experts in all areas of life (think: CEO boss babes who own multi-million dollar companies, beauty and wellness experts, self development gurus, celebrity fitness instructors, and more). It will also be a place where we get real… no topic is off limits; because discussing taboo topics is just so much more interesting and fun, right?!
Charcuterie boards are traditionally brought out as a pre-dinner appetizer, containing a variety of meats, cheese, vegetables, crackers, and more. The other day, I began planning a brunch menu for friends who were stopping by for a visit, and I thought… why the heck doesn’t anyone make brunch charcuterie boards?
I really do believe that mom guilt comes in massive waves. Some days, you feel like you’ve got this whole mom thing together. The kids are playing happily, you had a few extra minutes to clean the kitchen, and you even had time to prep dinner before three p.m (that in itself is a huge accomplishment, right)?? But, the next day all of those feelings of accomplishment quickly vanish. The kids have thrown five tantrums before nine a.m., you have a meeting you’re already running late to, and you’ve lost your patience more times than you’d like to admit.
If there’s one recipe that I just can’t live without, it’s bruschetta. Bruschetta pairs well with pretty much everything. It’s versatile and can be served as a side dish or appetizer. But, let’s be honest here for a second. The real reason I love bruschetta so much is that it’s both fast and easy to throw together, and you really can’t mess it up. When you only have ten minutes to whip together a side dish because the kids are screaming, or you have friends coming over for dinner unexpectedly…this is the recipe you want to make!
You guys are going to LOVE this recipe! This bowl can be made with any in-season veggies you have on hand; it works best with mushrooms, carrots, greens, brussels sprouts and green beans. The gravy is thick and hearty and you are going to want to put it on everything, so feel free to make lots and reheat it as needed.
