Yes, m'aam! Puff pastry is such a stand-by for instant small bites! Palmiers look so ritzy, but are so simple - the beauty of simple ingredients and imagination ... yes?

Hello just stumbled across your blog, funny thing I'm from Detroit Michigan, Full blooded Italian, grandparents both sides from Italy, father's side from Rocarasso, outside Rome, mother's side from Naples. Have the Italian cooking gene too, got to cook for the masses :-) ...I too enjoy cooking from scratch there's nothing better. Learned from watching my grandparents cooking with my parents. Love it.. looking forward to some ideas from your kitchen.
