Cinnamon Palmiers

Mar 29th

I wanted to post one more recipe before Easter weekend. Happy Easter, Happy Passover, or just a Happy Sunday to all of you! We are so looking forward to this weekend, our good friends from Tucson are coming Friday and staying through Easter. If you know me, I love to entertain, and this is just one more excuse to do so. I have all kinds of menus planned, and some new recipes too. I made these little Cinnamon Palmiers last week and Pete and I devoured them right out of the oven. This is another super easy recipe and you might want to give it a try this weekend. All you need is puff pastry, butter, cinnamon, and sugar. They really make such a lovely presentation, and besides that, they melt in your mouth! I was talking before about entertaining, and a few blogs back I gave some tips on it. I was talking to my best friend Kristi on the phone this morning, and she said, what are you up to? And I replied, I’m setting my table for Easter. She replied, I don’t set mine until a few hours before. This is the key people, to be totally organized and ready before your company arrives, so you can sit back relax, and have fun with your guests. I try to get a lot done before they even get here. Kristi did have a great tip for me once, which I never thought of before. I was frantically trying to finish up my dishes before guests arrived for a party we were giving, and she said  just throw them in the garage dirty. I thought how ingenious! I love this idea, the only bad thing is you have to clean them up in the morning, and if you forget about them, especially in Arizona in the summer, this could be a bad idea! I would suggest this as a last resort. If you have any questions for me about entertaining, I would be glad to share, just leave me a comment. I look forward to hearing from you! As always thanks for taking the time to read my blog! Love, Stacey
