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

The end result would rival any Italian restaurant…here, try some… Continue reading

Party Dips

Party Dips 1

Saturday night we had cocktails at our home with my parents and my Aunt Kathy and Uncle Fred. I love when they visit because we always have such a fun time. Well, before our dinner reservations at one of my favorite martini bars, I served cocktails and dips. I had just cooked a ham the day before, and the night before that we had my hubby’s excellent Dijon & Dill Salmon. So with my leftovers and some help from a few condiments I made some very tasty dips. Add some fresh toast points and the right presentation and you have a little party… Continue reading
