What's sweet and savory and looks magical next to wildflowers? This monogrammed cheese board. Honestly, it's going to blow your mind, friends. It's a very simple spread but with specific items which you can find aaaaallllmost anywhere.

Here's what I've got on the cheese board (which was a Christmas present from my parents).
  • Honey Goat Cheese
  • Macrina's Greek Olive Baguette 
  • Geek Olives
My recipe for honey goat cheese is simple: buy it at your local store. Only original goat cheese? That's okay! Simply cream together your goat cheese and local honey. I get mine at the farmers market in the next town over, Ballard Farmer's Market. They have an incredible wildflower honey from Gaia's Harmony Farm out in Snohomish Valley.

The Greek olive loaf baguette is something you can buy in most stores. I tend to go to the bakery on the other side of upper Queen Anne. There are multiple locations around Seattle and I recommend stopping in and grabbing a loaf or one of their treat if you're in town visiting. When I have friends staying with me or staying in an airbnb close by I always pick up a baguette. 

The Greek olives, get excited, are from ... Safeway! So elegant and chic, right? Haha! Honestly, they're so good though. They compliment the goat cheese really well. 

The cheese board is from Anthropologie and is monogrammed for whatever letter you'd like. It's made of marble so it's wonderfully durable and it's also super easy to clean. Which is important when you don't own a dishwasher. My little olive bowl is a souvenir that I picked up in a tiny tile and pottery shop in Toledo, Spain. I love it. I have amazing memories from that day whenever I look at it. The gold pineapple cheese knife is from a set my grandmother had. 

What's on your favorite cheese board?
