Layering landscapes and weaving together all kinds of different textures and flavors is endlessly satisfying to me. Our pantry is usually well-stocked with staple and seasonal ingredients so I start there when deciding what to make, and often come up with new recipes or combinations. You can go DIY with the entire thing, but there are also many wonderful plant-based meats, cheeses, etc. that you can buy to fill out your board.
I invite you to join me in writing a love note (to yourself or anyone else) in food form this February. Components I chose are listed under each category in bold along with additional suggestions for crafting your own. Feel free to create new categories and go as big or small as you want. Just focus on your favorite treats–anything bite-sized, spreadable, or dip-worthy should do!
