Bounty from the Bark of a Tree

I love to cook and will happily slave over a hot stove in fall and winter.

But summer is my time for a big KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid.) – easy recipes, casual dining with friends and lots of chilled Prosecco. 

It was a hot Friday afternoon and I was expecting my friend Anna and her husband.  We were going to Haddonfield to shop, then back to my house for some light bites and bubbly to cool us off while waiting for my husband to come home from work (Anna’s husband loves shopping; mine hates it!!).  Then we were off to the Country Club for dinner. 

An hour before they arrived, I threw together one of my favorite easy hors d’oeuvres whose main ingredient comes from the bark of a palm tree.  No kidding!

In My Own Backyard – Maison Marcellé – Part 2

In Part 1, I introduced you to Andrea Marcellé Miller and her fabulous jewel box Boutique on Kings Highway in Haddonfield – right In My Own Backyard.  And I promised to share some of Andrea’s favorite finds and places in Paris in Part 2. 

So, come with me as I pay a return visit to Maison Marcellé and make good on that promise.
