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

Croque Madame

I first had a Croque Madame during our visit to Paris a few years ago and loved it!
