Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Puff Pastry for Mom (Guest Post)

Two of my girls made me breakfast in bed yesterday, and oldest daughter offered to share her recipe for the yummy puff pastry creation she served. 




Making a delicious Mother's Day breakfast doesn't have to be hard! All you need is some puff pastry dough, cream cheese, and fresh berries, and you'll be just fine. Chop, crush, blend, or otherwise smash up the berries and combine them with the cream cheese--you should have about equal amounts of cream cheese and berries in your mix. Add some sugar to taste.

Roll out your puff pastry dough, and then cut out circles from the dough. Put the circles on a cookie sheet, and spoon the cream cheese mixture into the middle of the circles. Make sure the amount isn't too generous--you need to be able to close the pastry! Fold the pastry over and pinch the edges shut, then spread an egg wash over the top of the pastry. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees until the top is golden brown and cracked. Serve hot with sauce and (if desired) spoon extra berry cream cheese over the top.
Sauce: Boil some sugar in water, add blended pineapple and orange marmalade.

Thanks for my children.

  7. Amara and I may have to try this together. This is really simple enough that she could handle it all -- with just the right amount of Grandma supervision.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be
