Hi, there! My name is Emily and I’m the photographer, cook and rambler behind the blog Jelly Toast. Aside from compulsively taking photos of everything I eat and drinking way too much coffee, I also spend my days being a joke teller, snack maker and giver-of-hugs to my two little kiddos. Full disclosure: I’m not so great at the jokes but I can cook up some pretty mean snacks.
Whether it’s an after-preschool pick-me-up, a big family BBQ or a ‘Girls’ Night’ cocktail party, I simply love making snacks. Let’s be honest, I love eating snacks even more. I could not watch my Top Chef marathon without a hummus and veggie platter or spicy popcorn. A dinner party would not be complete without some sort of crudité or canapé. Snacks and appetizers are like the ice breaker of food. I’ve made many-a-friend around a lovely cheeseboard. What can I say? Antipasto makes me down right chatty.
Here on FoodFanatic, I will share with you all of my favorite appetizer and snack recipes - from kid friendly to cocktail party and everything in between. Welcome to my cheeseboard!
