Charcuterie: holiday gatherings

This has just been so much fun, you all! Here are a few of the recent boards I’ve had the pleasure of putting together for your gatherings. Pictured below is a dessert board and a basic charcuterie.

December schedule is filling up and I couldn’t be more grateful for it! Shoot me a call, text or email to make your reservation🤍




Charcuterie: fun family dinner

Greetings, you all! I hope you are well!

Sharing a board here that I did for some very special family friends. My kiddos favorite dinner plan is “charcuterie night” so I created something I felt my own family would enjoy and I’m so happy to hear that they loved it, too.

As you can see there’s a little something for everyone…from fruits + veggies to dessert and lots in between. My kids love to “sandwich build” with the meats, cheeses and dips; so much conversation and creativity can come from this type of meal. A perfectly balanced dinner that just simply needs to be pulled out of the fridge and placed in the middle of the table for everyone to dive into. This is SUCH a fun way to share a meal as a family!

I have openings on Tuesday November 16th and would be delighted to create a quick, easy meal for your family…reach out with questions or to place your order!




Charcuterie: autumn housewarming

First and foremost…I am so incredibly humbled by all of your orders coming in! You people are something else and I am just so very delighted to serve you!

Here is a fun one from this week. This was an order from a very sweet soul looking to surprise a family of friends with a little housewarming treat as they settle in their new home. The parents of the family eat paleo (while still enjoying dairy) so you’ll see lots of fresh, colorful bites in this board for the whole family. And of course, a few candy pumpkins for the kiddos;)

The sweetest little housewarming package all wrapped up and ready to nosh🤍 I hope they love it!

Call, text or email me today to order yours!

What’s New

Hello, dear friends! I’m back and excited to share with you my new adventure. This is something I’ve been dreaming of for years and it was back-burnered by “after Nicks travel slows down” and “after my kids are out of the toddler stage” and “after we get Nick healthy again” and “after all the kids are in school”. But guess what? I’m done waiting because if there is anything in this life I’ve learned it’s that there will always be an “after…”. So in full-blown Melissa fashion, I will dive in head first and hope and pray for the very best!

With that, I give you my Kitchen Offerings of Custom Charcuterie Boards!

Want a delicious statement piece for your next gathering? I’ve got you! I am so thrilled to announce that I am officially offering custom appetizer or meal boards!
Hosting a wine night with your girlfriends or a couples holiday gathering? There’s a board for that! Asked to bring dessert? Wow your hosts by taking a stunning sweet board. Or if you simply want to do something kind for a friend these boards are such a fun, unique way to break and share bread with others. Just tell me your preferences, how many guests you’d like to accommodate and a little bit about your event/recipients and we will work to bring you something you will be so proud to serve or share!

I will be using this space to share some of the boards I create so you have ideas to choose from. Contact me for more info or to schedule and customize your own charcuterie board. I would absolutely love to help you make your next special occasion beautiful, delicious and unforgettable for your guests! Spaces may be limited. All orders must be placed a minimum of 7 days in advance. Dietary restrictions can typically be accommodated.

As always, your support is why I am blessed enough to still have this active community together to be able to share and grow this idea. Many of you have been with me for years and years…from growing my food blog to supporting my family during very trying times. I hope you know how grateful I feel to be able to launch this new adventure knowing the strength and support of this Nourished Peach community. What a gift you are🤍


Sweet + Sticky Roasted Brussels

If you are looking to get your fam on board with Brussels sprouts, these just might be the ticket. Slightly crisp outside, tender inside and a sweet, bold sticky coating that is just the perfect base for a sprinkle of crunchy walnuts on top. Serve these up with a grilled, baked or roasted fish, steak or chicken and dinner is done! Continue reading

Super Bowl Inspo

Happy Saturday! In the event that you are looking for a little last minute super bowl grub inspiration, here are a few faves. My guess is there won’t be a ton of gathering going on this year but that won’t stop us from a game-day-grub-filled kitchen, right? Here are a few ideas from the past that would be perfect for the big game! Continue reading

Winter Power Salad with Lemon Honey Vinaigrette

Good day, buddies! How we doing? I sit here this morning with a cozy cup of coffee and a beautiful view of the falling snow. And while there’s not much more aesthetically stunning than a fresh snowfall in the woods in my book, this time of year can get pretty mundane and heavy with the foods we eat. So it got me thinking that you might all need a little lightness thrown into your winter meal rotations, just as we do. And this salad should absolutely do the trick 👌🏼 Continue reading

Pickled Purple Cabbage

Do any of you absolutely love to ‘eyeball’ cook? You know, no measuring spoons, no recipes, just throwing ingredients together and using your good old fashioned trust of the old eyeballs? Its the only way I cook most times…my favorite way to cook. Which sounds silly, really, because I share recipes here. But most times, when Im trying to create a recipe, I eyeball it first…and if it turns out worthy to share with all of you…Ill go back and make it again and measure as I go and jot it down for you. True love, no?
