Cherry Pecan Baked Brie

Cherry Pecan Baked Brie

So I also tried this baked brie recipe as another app when our dear friends came over last night. I couldn't resist the huge wheel of brie for $4.99 at Costco, but I wanted to try something different than my usual go to with brie (rhubarb jam). This is my new go-to. It is heaven on a cracker, kids. The bonus is that it takes a whopping 5 minutes to assemble. Brie will never fail you, I say. Never.

Place brie in a small baking dish after cutting the rind off the top. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until softened and oozing. Cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, heat topping ingredients except pecans and cherries in a small saucepan until boiling. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes or until the topping looks foamy. Remove from heat and stir in dried cherries and pecans. Pour over brie. Serve with crackers or bread.

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
