Oh La La, Basil Baguette

I am a health food freak, but sometimes I just want some dang carbs. GIMMEEE GIMMEEE! I have been trying to create my favorite recipes for my blog so that I can one day turn them into a family recipe book. Hope you love this carbolicious recipe! I have also been in a super FRENCH mood lately (I don't even know what the heck that means). So, a basic french baguette with some fresh herbs was on my mind.

J.Crew Summer Sandals

Sandal season has officially arrived. I am so happy I can finally swap my closed-toe booties out for a pair of J.Crew sandals. My favorite sandal from their new spring/summer collection is the Leila. I plan to pair my Leila's with a classic white day dress like this one from Free People. And the best part; J.Crew's Sandals are oh, so comfortable and last forever.

The Perfect Cheese Plate

(All images taken by moi)

For those who want to live life on the 'wedge'.

Sure, I go nuts for a little bit of vino and hanging out/soiree'ing with mes amies, but there's nothing better than a cheese plate to add a little YUM to the night. If you want you can even add some meat and VOILÁ you have yourself cheesy charcuterie. My favorite wine to pair with any cheese is any MALBEC. Of course, I am biased because some of my family is from Argentina (Home of zee Malbec). 

Anatomy of a perfect cheese plate:

  • 4-6 different types of cheese (something for everyone's palette)
  • Something sweet (dried apricots, fruit)
  • Something crunchy (mixed nuts)
  • Something to add flavor to cheese (fruity jam)
  • Crackers
  • Toasted bread
