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: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
