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: 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

Ten Things of Thankful: From Sunrise to Moonset

Cars and trucks on a highway travel toward the rising sun                                    John and I made a quick, task-oriented trip to California last week. We wore our masks and stayed at an acceptable social distance from others (which is hard for grandchildren to understand, but we mostly succeeded.) We're now home, and at the "I need a vacation to recover from my 'vacation' " stage, which makes sitting down to compose a TToT post a bit of a challenge. However, I know that I will feel better by the end of this post, so bear with me if you will.  1. I'm thankful that we had no problems with traffic going there or coming home. We left our hotel at about quarter to four on Friday morning. The early start, fewer families traveling this year, or, most likely, a combination of the two, made for an easy drive.  2. I'm thankful for books to help pass the time. We haven't actually finished yet (as I was reading aloud, and my voice can only last for so l
