How To Make Perfect Vinaigrette

My Recipes
Tonight is THIS. We've invited our neighbors over for wine and appetizers. We've never hosted 2 of them before, so we're excited to get to know them! The brie is baking in the oven now (mm-m-m, with dried cherries, honey, and rosemary), and we're ready to have a great night. . . I wish more people would put away their fears and open their homes. An easy #charcuterie is a great way to start! Everyone sits around the table, munches on their favorite bites, sips on wine, and looks across the table into NEW eyes ... tell me your story ... I'm hear to listen! (follow my story if you want to learn more.) . . . #friyay #fridaynight #hospitality ##feastonlife #simplehospitality #cozy #cozygathering #livethelittlethings #theeverydayproject #cheeseboard #frontyardpeople #thiswintermoment #wintermood #foodblogeats #huffposttaste #pnwfoodie #oregonfoodie #appetizers #bend #feedyoursoul #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #westcoastfoodie #foodforthought #foodiegram #tasty #pacificnorthwest #pier1 #appetizerparty #charcuterieboards
