Sweet and Savory Baked Brie | Easy Appetizers for the Holidays

Sweet and Savory Baked Brie, Easy Appetizers, Easy Appetizers for the Holidays, Thanksgiving Appetizer,

thelushlist-33thelushlist-58 thelushlist-68thelushlist-77thelushlist-89 Appetizers are always difficult for me.  My default is a charcuterie board.  It’s beautiful served on this board.  It’s now become my “signature” item I serve and bring to events so I need new go-to.   Another easy appetizer I enjoy making but often forget about.  Today I’m sharing two Baked Brie recipes your friends and guests will love: Pumpkin Pie Baked Brie and Caprese Baked Brie.

They are super simple and easy to assemble.  The Pumpkin Pie Baked Brie uses the same pumpkin pie mix from the Salted Caramel Apple Crisp (which would be a great Thanksgiving dessert!).  One can, two dishes!  Another time and money saver for you like my Easy and Elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape from last Monday.

The Caprese Baked Brie is a warm take on the Italian classic.  Fresh garlic and grape tomatoes baked in a tender crust are amazing.

Use my Gluten Free Pie Crust for the Pumpkin Pie Baked Brie, which can be made early and refrigerated for 4-6  weeks or frozen.  I’ll be making mine for the holidays this week.  If you don’t have to be gluten free, the ready made pie crusts or crescent dough are great for this as well.  The secret to moving them from the baking sheet to your serving platter?  This giant spatula.  It’s great for moving pizzas, large pieces of fish and rustic pies, too.

Happy Monday!

Fall Trend: Slouchy Bags

Last week in the Fall Style Boutique, I shared Seven Trends for Fall. Today, I want to focus on slouchy handbags.  It seems our craving for soft and comfortable things has now carried over into our accessories with the popularity of slouchy style handbags featuring gentle folds and gathers of leather and fabric.
