For the last two years in a row, I’ve come down with a nasty bug come Christmas, and have been bedridden for New Years each time. Since launching my business, I’ve been working constantly to uncover that elusive work-life balance thing everyone goes on about, and while I’ve yet to discover the secret, it’s my mission to not overdo it this December. This year I’m determined to celebrate the season in every way possible, but I’m going easy on myself, and placing focus on what really matters. I’m asking for help when needed, hosting the simplest holiday party EVER (more on that next week), and making sure I have all the ingredients on hand for a few beyond simple, yet equally delicious, holiday recipes to serve my people. And this one, for a baked brie with wine soaked berries, is all that and then some.
A warm brie is one of our favorites. We buy the brie that comes in a thin wooden container. Take off the inner plastic wrap, put the brie back in the wooden box, and set on the edge of the grill after you’ve cooked your dinner. While you’re eating, it heats, and is nice and gooey just in time for the cheese course. I haven’t done it in the oven, but I would guess that it would work fine. The wooden container creates a kind of bowl for the melted cheese once you’ve cut into the rind.
You’re making my mouth water!
This looks so good!! I definitely need to try this. :)
I insist that you do
This sounds like heaven! i completely adore brie! And i’m pretty sure you’ll be an amazing host! Can’t wait to hear more about it
Oh you :) Thanks for being my constant cheerleader!
Baked brie, definitely one of my favorite with baked camembert. I feel so lucky to live in France and have these delights at all time x

Ugh I am SO jealous about your access to insanely good (cheap) cheeses! Eat em all for me, please
This looks so yummy! I’ve tried baked Brie before and it came our sort of mediocre? It wasn’t creamy and melty like this one. This has all my favorite things! I’m trying this
The meltiness is KEY! Hopefully this one turns out for you :)
