Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich

I have made many variations of chicken salad, as chicken is like a blank canvas that picks up any flavor you add, but this is hands down my favorite recipe. This is a fool proof, no fail, crowd pleasing recipe that is can be served in many different ways.  I’ve used this recipe to make sandwiches, as

Citrus Crescent Rolls

Earlier this year, I spent about 3 days in Paris.  I made about 3-5 stops everyday to pick up a “snack” to make up for the short time I had.  I made sure I ate all the baked goods, crepes possible and loved every bite. As usual I gravitated towards all the savory crepes, but

Tuna Sliders

Trust me… your summer party will stand out for all the right reasons. Don’t get me wrong, I love a classic all beef slider, but by the 4th bbq of the summer…. #IJustCan’t !!  The tuna slider is such a great alternative to a regular beef slider.  It’s healthier, lighter and is packed with a lot of flavors.

Onion Tart

Soooo… it’s a random Thursday evening and I’m alerted that we are having guest over…. NOW!  Before I could say who/what/when… I hear the buzzer going off.  Urrrrgghh! Times like these, I always go semi-homemade.  I also almost always go with pre-made puff pastry…. as my sister says “it is your knight in shining (egg-wash glistening) armor.”

Cranberries and Pistachio Pastry

This was a pleasant accidental success.  I was going for escargot chocolat-pistache, cuz I can’t get my recent trip to Paris out of my head, but totally messed it up.  The dough wasn’t moist, I used the wrong type of dough.  But it made for some delicious crispy treats 🙂
