Easy Entertaining

Scott and I love to entertain. Whether it's a Friday night cocktail party, or hosting a formal dinner party. Planning, cooking, and socializing over cocktails are some of my favorite activities. Having the right mix of complicated and noncomplicated dishes makes it fun for the host as well.

I'm all about taking a few shortcuts to make an impressive spread. Here is an easy idea that I bring out this time of the year, that looks festive, tastes great, and is as easy as spreading cheese.
Use your favorite spreadable cheese like Boursin. Put about a tablespoon on each endive leaf. Arange in a circle and sprinkle some chopped chives or parsley. In the center of the circle, you can add dried cranberries, canned artichoke hearts, or whatever you like.

What a beautiful presentation! I love the alternating colors of endive leaves. And this is so easy which is even better during the busy Holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving Mo, Scott and Chase! :)

That's just beautiful. I love the purple and the green together.
