I created the Family - Size Nacho Board

YUM.. it was so good and really easy to prepare.  


Do you enjoy creating Charcuterie Boards? Do you have a favorite themed board? 

Or have you enjoyed eating from a Charcuterie Board? 


  1. I make Charcuterie boards all the time. They are a nice way to have small bites that everyone can enjoy. Your nacho board looks yummy. xoxo Kris

  2. Yours looks so yummy! And the book looks very good. When I come across a good looking board online, I usually save the photo to my picture folder.

  3. Oh, I love Nachos but just make it very simple. Just enough for hubby and me.
    Yours look very good and healthy.


  4. Those Nachos look delicious, but that Nacho board is something else! It's so big, and you can put many items on there to enjoy your Nachos. What a clever idea. Thanks for sharing this, Carla. The girls would love something like this, as they entertain quite often.


  5. Never did one of these boards but they sound interesting. Plus I love Nachos YUM! Janice

  6. We had tacos tonight and they were so good. This would have worked well when all of my boys were at home! What a great idea. You'll like my post today...it's flowers! Hugs, Diane

  7. Looks delish!! I grew up in a family where antipasto was served very regularly, every weekend in fact. So I'm very comfortable eating off of boards!! Haha...reminds me of home and great memories.

  8. Looks delicious....

    Mmmmm, does everyone just keep dipping their 'dip chip' in the food?????? -sigh- I admit, I'd not feel happy with that. -grin-

    A husband and wife, yes. But a group, no.

    Even if it's a new chip, each time. the chip is held by the person's hand, whose fingers just put the last one, into their mouth.

    I know..... Tooooo fussssssy.... lol

  9. I haven't done any boards but see them posted often. Yours turned out great. Sounds like a very interesting book. Enjoy!

  10. LOVE grazing boards (what I call them) and will certainly look into that wonderful book! I would enjoy being given lots of ideas and options for serving this way. It's such fun! Your nacho board looks wonderful! xoxo

  11. Yum! This looks so good.

    All the best Jan

  12. This is amazing for a party or a Friday night at home! I do love making them. I do mostly fruit/cheese/deli... My daughter likes baked brie if she is home. I like bruschetta too... all different kinds... charcuterie or bruschetta... 💗 both!

  13. That looks so good! Family size nacho board... I would have never thought of this!
    I've never made a Charcuterie board, but the ones I have enjoyed tasting, have been meats/cheese/fruit.
