Ain’t Too Proud To Meg

𝗠𝗲𝗴 𝗤𝘂𝗶𝗻𝗻-Food Stylist & BOARDING SCHOOL founder, sharing tips to make beautiful boards for every occasion. Show off yours using #AintTooProudToCheese

5 tips for making SMALLER BOARDS ⬇️ #CheeseBoardingSchool:
1️⃣: choose 1 hard cheese & 1 soft cheese. Here we have Alpha Tolman (an alpine-style cheese made with raw milk) and Little Hosmer (a mini Brie). Both from @jasperhill.
2️⃣: add crackers. One kind is fine for smaller platters. You can put some on the board and the rest on the side.
3️⃣: add one SAVORY accoutrement: in this case, I used castelvetrano olives.
4️⃣: add at least one SWEET accouterment: here I used lots of fruit, BUT you can definitely limit it to 1 or 2 for smaller boards. This is your chance to add a couple colors to create visual interest...so since we already added the green castelvetrano olives, I’d go with purple grapes and red raspberries.💚💜❤️
5️⃣: Add rosemary for garnish. This is the cherry on top that adds texture and always makes your boards a little more fancy 🌱🌿🌱
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS- I did a poll on STORIES today about budget boards. Would you like to see one for $25, $35 or &45 on here? NOTE: The higher number will gives us more to choose from 🧀💛🧀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SWIPE for Labels.

Happy 2nd annual #NationalCheddarDay! I’m celebrating with an epic GYOC (Grill Your Own Cheese) Board using my favorite cheddars from @tillamook. #ad
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Guests can choose their own adventure with toppings that range from SWEET (caramelized onions &  fig jam) to SAVORY (bacon & pesto)...It’s a super fun & interactive way to entertain, upgraded even further with their choice of Tillamook Sharp Cheddar (aged 9 months to get the sharpness JUST RIGHT) or the 2012 Tillamook Maker’s Reserve (aged 8 years for a perfectly nutty and buttery flavor).

One of my 1st VDAY Boards made 3 years ago. Looking back, can you guess what I’d change about it? CLUE: it has to do with my “rule” about hard cheeses. Head to STORIES for the answer 🧀❤️🧀.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SWIPE for video assembly. You can do the same by cutting wax paper into the shape of a heart and build it on top of a rectangular or square board. It’s more practical for serving that way. #BoardswithHeart

Do things that scare you. And then do them over and over until they’re not as scary anymore!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2 years ago, I said NO to these types of opportunities. I literally cried to all my girlfriends before my first BOARDING SCHOOL demo because I had anxieties around public speaking.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BUT I got through the first one. And then did another one. And another. And now they’re something I actually ENJOY 🙋‍♀️❤️.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last couple years... it’s that there’s no better feeling than doing something that scares you and coming out on the other side!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all have fears, but if we face them, they have sooo much less power. So here’s to doing something that scares you this week! 🙌🙌🙌
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
AND...💋💋💋 TUNE INTO @homeandfamily tomorrow morning at 10am/9c on Hallmark Channel. Please note if you are a DirectTV subscriber on the West coast, the episode will air 7am PT.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS- “Lip injections” aka lip gummies from my fave @sockerbitnyc.

Will you BRIE my Galentine? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Per your request, I finally put together a Brie Cutout #CheeseBoardingSchool Tutorial today (editing now & hoping to post tomorrow). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I talk through cookie-cutter selection in the tutorial (size DOES matter here), so I’ll post a link to this one on STORIES now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember to tag me and use #BoardsWithHeart when you post your boards so I can see your VDAY creations.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And BIG shoutout to @sockerbitnyc for the lip gummies and pink hearts. Like all their candies, they’re naturally dyed, non-GMO and high-fructose corn syrup-FREE.

Family-friendly, Valentine’s Day board, fun for kiddos & adults. SWIPE for LABELS, including some unexpected items including the infamous Apple Heart, ❌⭕️❌⭕️ Babybel Cheeses (top right) and mini caprese skewers with heart tomatoes ❤️🍅. I also included naturally-dyed gummies from @sockerbitnyc and @traderjoes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So...what do you think? Fun for the whole family? Note that when I say kiddos, I don’t mean toddlers when it comes to the sharp skewers and whole grapes- as always, defer to your judgement when it comes to your kiddos food 😃
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
FYI- Apple Heart tutorial 2 posts back. And I’ll post a tutorial for the other items on STORIES later tonight. #BoardsWithHearts

As promised, HOW-TO make a HEART APPLE video! I’m not sure how I came up with this “invention” last year, but it’s definitely a fun & easy addition to any Valentine’s Day Board. If you make one, be sure to tag me & share to the #BoardsWithHeart hashtag so I can see.
