With wedding season upon us, that also means bridal showers are aplenty. Whether you're tasked with planning, or are just a guest, bringing a little homemade something for the table is an appreciative gesture that won't be overlooked. If you're scouring Pinterest for something that says gourmet but is easy enough for even a kitchen novice to tackle, scour no more. These Fancy Pants Grapefruit Slices from Mackenzie Schieck's blog, Pine and Crave are just the ticket.
