Salmon Canape Bites

Salmon Canape Bites

We are still enjoying summer poolside and I love to have my friends over several times a month to sip cocktails and have appetizers. I have learned to let the girls bring some of the goodies… but I also like to have a few goodies of my own. So here is a little snack I made for one of our poolside afternoons. Continue reading

Shrimp Quesadilla

Shrimp Quesadilla
I made these little treats as a hearty appetizer to serve pool side for a girls swim date…small tortillas make perfect little wedges when quartered.

My Hubby loved it so much that he requested it again. This time I decided to share it with all of you. Continue reading

Eggs Sardou

Eggs Sardou 2
We spent Easter afternoon at the Country Club for their excellent and over the top buffet… A wonderful break for me to not have to cook. One of the many options to choose from was this delicious bite of Eggs Sardou. Both my Hubby and I liked so much that he asked me if I would recreate the dish at home for breakfast. Here is my version of this wonderful dish… (Oh, I made the Artichokes the night before and saved the hearts, but we ate the leaves as an appetizer with dinner). Continue reading
