Patty's pick & patty loves.


Pam Glover of Brandon shared this recipe for Asparagus Roll-Up tea sandwiches with me several years ago, and they are my favorite go-to sandwich for teas and luncheons. I have also served them at brunches or in the roll basket for a special dinner. They are simple to prepare and delicious, and everyone requests the recipe. These sandwiches would make a wonderful addition to your Easter brunch, lunch, or egg hunt. Enjoy!

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

spear on each bread slice; roll up. Be sure to seal edges. Brush

These egg-shaped bath balms by Musee, a small cottage business in Madison County whose motto is "Soak in Life," make the perfect Easter treats. The hand-pressed bath balms are made with natural ingredients such as organic sugars, salts, and herbs for healing, soothing, and nurturing.

Each balm is named after a fun song and has its own recipe, some including small treasures. "Musee bath balms remind us to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, and as life would have it--you might just find a little surprise waiting for you at the end."

As well as providing community jobs, Musee also sells bath balms called "SWEET CHILD O' MINE" giving 100% of profits to support TABITHA MINISTRIES in South Africa through the Sweetwaters NFP here in Mississippi.

Regular bath balms sell for around $6, and a half-dozen eggs with treasures sell for $12-$15. Musee bath balms are available at Smitten Gift Boutique, 207 W. Jackson St. in Ridgeland, and Whole Foods, Highland Village in Jackson.
