You’re pretty busy this time of year, right? There are gifts to buy, parties to attend and you may even end up hosting a gathering or two at your own house. When I host, I like to make things that are easy but deceptively elegant. This simple cheese spread is made with only 3 ingredients – but your guests will never know how easy it was to make!
3 Ingredient Pesto Goat Cheese Spread
- 4 oz goat cheese
- 2 oz cream cheese
- ¼ cup pesto (store bought or homemade)
- Let ingredients come to room temperature.
- Blend all three ingredients together well using a hand mixer.
- Garnish with basil leaves and pine nuts.
Serve it with fresh veggies for dipping, whole grain crackers or spread on a fresh baguette.
The Cutting Board
Did you notice that pretty cutting board in the top photo? It’s a handmade Larch Wood cutting board made in Nova Scotia, Canada. The larch wood is sustainably harvested and naturally resistant to bacteria. The board has rubber feet on the bottom to prevent it from sliding and I’m in love with beautiful designs in the wood!
It comes from a boutique retailer of cutting boards and butcher blocks called cuttingboard.com. The business was started by two friends with a commitment to environmental stewardship. All of their products are certified sustainable, renewable or reclaimed and many are made by independent artisans and woodmakers. They are also a member of 1% for the Planet, donating a portion of each sale to environmental causes.
Pssst! There’s a holiday sale going on right now, if you’ve still got gifts to buy!
To help celebrate the season, cuttingboard.com is giving away 3 cutting boards! One lucky person will win the 18 x 12 Maple Cutting Board with Grips by John Boos and two people will win a 16 x 12 Proteak Edge Grain cutting board. This is a collaborative giveaway with these other awesome bloggers:
