It has been the year of the Charcuterie board. People like choice and abundance. Place a charcuterie board down in front of people and they get to pick and choose what they like, making flavor combinations that appeal to them. It’s like a food version of choose-your-own adventure. When you're looking to entertain or need ideas for an event, think of Local Chef Tina Jean. She has the art of the board down to a science.
NASA is what first brought her and her family to the wonderful Space Coast community in 2019. She is a ten year Air Force Veteran, stay-at-home mom and now your local personal chef!

Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, racquetball and tennis. Most often there are four
players although it can be played with two. It uses solid paddles made of a composite material to hit a perforated polymer ball that resembles a wiffle ball.
It is played on 1/2 the size of a tennis court. While rallying the ball over a 34’’ net, 11 points take the win, but must be 2 points more than the opponent.
I started playing in February 2020. It's an easy sport to learn, and anyone can play. We have players of all age's, shapes and sizes. We even have players that have had double hip replacements! But don't fool yourself, there is a big element of strategy so it's anyone's game. Best of all, just show up with a paddle in hand and you're ready to play! Pickleball players love to welcome new players and they are
happy to teach you the game. I take my paddle with me when I travel, it's easy to take along and I always find a c; ...
