The Recipe: Man Munchies that You’ll Actually Want to Eat

(abeautifulmess.com)

Men
 these 
days 
are just 
as
 active
 in 
the
 kitchen
 as 
women.
 You 
will
 find
 more
 and more 
often 
that 
male 
members 
of 
your family, 
especially
 those 
who 
have 
moved 
out and
 are 
living 
the 
“bachelor 
life”
 tend
 to
 entertain 
a 
lot 
more.

Time 
is
 usually
 not 
their 
best 
friend
 and 
so 
having 
a 
quick 
set
 of 
recipes
 that 
take less 
then 
10 
minutes 
to
 wrap 
up
and
 yet 
have 
that
 fresh
 home
 cooked
 vibe
 is 
a 
must.

The
 first
 must
 is
 always 
to 
have 
a 
variety 
of 
crackers/
crostini
/
breadsticks 
in 
your hamper.
These 
go 
perfectly
 with 
most 
dips, 
cheese 
plates
 and 
a
 bowl
 to 
even 
snack on
 your 
own.

I 
have 
recently
 been
 using 
Bake
Stix/
Bake
Rolz 
(AKA my crostini) as 
my 
perfect
 snack 
on the 
go 
and 
even 
at 
home.
 They 
have 
a range
 of 
flavors, 
they’re 
hassle 
free,
 you 
can match
 them 
up 
with 
anything
 and 
they 
come
 in
 an 
easy
 pack 
with 
a moderate portion.

 

 



The 
Perfect 
Cheese 
Plate

A
 cheese 
plate 
is
 one 
staple 
appetizer 
that 
works 
for 
any 
invitation. 
It 
is 
also
 an
 ideal snack
 when
 looking 
for something 
quick 
and 
to 
the 
point.
 You 
can 
pair 
it 
up
 with dried 
fruit,
 fresh
 chutney 
and 
different
 baked 
goods
 that will 
always
 give
 it
 that extra
 spark.

When
 picking 
your 
cheese
 plate, 
remember 
to 
choose 
a 
variety. 
Always 
integrate 
a soft 
cheese,
 something 
creamy, 
an 
aged
 cheese,
 as 
well 
as 
a 
more 
solid 
one.
 When selecting
 your 
cheese, 
have 
a
 taste
 of 
what’s 
out 
there. 
It 
doesn’t take 
more 
than 
a couple
 minutes.
 You 
might 
surprise 
your 
taste 
buds
 and
 most 
cheeses
 usually 
have 
a good
 shelf 
life, meaning
 you
 do 
not 
have 
to 
eat 
it 
in 
the 
next
 couple of 
days 
or 
it 
will 
go bad.

 

 

Bake 
It!

If 
an 
entire 
cheese
 plate 
is 
a 
little 
high
 maintenance 
for
 you, 
but 
you 
still 
want 
to 
get your
 cheese 
on,
 then 
I
 have the 
most 
amazing
 thing
 you
 will 
ever 
eat 
in 
your 
life!

Keep 
It 
Fresh!

 

Looking
 for 
something 
a 
little 
more 
fresh? 
This
 dip 
works
 perfectly
 with 
avocado 
in season. 
Not 
your 
typical 
guac‐like dish, 
I
 would
 suggest
 this 
dip 
for 
those 
who
 like 
to change
 things
 up 
in 
the 
kitchen.
 A
 note 
to 
the 
chefs 
out 
there: Avocado 
is 
a 
very sensitive 
fruit 
that
 is 
best 
eaten
 on 
the
 spot
 rather
 than 
kept
 in
 the 
fridge 
for 
too long.
