Laura’s Puff Pastry Surprise!

Laura’s Puff Pastry Surprise!

Creativity runs thick amongst the Campbell women. Especially in the kitchen. One afternoon my sister Laura found herself with left over Onion Marmalade that she had prepared and used as a sandwich topper a few days prior.  Also on hand was puff pastry and goat cheese.  At that moment, “Laura’s Puff Pastry Surprise!” was created! 🙂 A bit dangerous right … Continue reading

Christmas Time is Here!

Christmas Time is Here!

It’s that time of year again. Thanksgiving came in a blink of an eye and the Christmas season arrived in full swing! Christmas carols are playing in stores, elevators and radio stations. Twinkling lights are hung and those huge yard snow globes are inflating in neighborhoods everywhere. Tree lots have been set-up in parking lots overnight, beautifully decorated trees are displayed … Continue reading

Two Apples and a sheet of Puff Pastry!

Two Apples and a sheet of Puff Pastry!

What do you do on a lazy and gloomy Saturday afternoon? I bake!!  Two apples, a sheet of puff pastry and minimal other ingredients and you instantly have a delightful dessert!  Or dinner, which was almost the case here. 😉 Defrost your puff pastry (I prefer Pepperidge Farm), heat oven to 400 degrees (or per package instructions) and … Continue reading

A Chocolate Chip Pie to be Thankful for!

A Chocolate Chip Pie to be Thankful for!

With Thanksgiving quickly upon us, it’s only natural to think about the things we’re thankful for. Though I believe being thankful and not taking for granted the people and things we’re so lucky to be blessed with, should be something we’re cautious of daily. I never pass up the opportunity to let the people who are important to … Continue reading

Shhhhhhhhh!! It’s a secret! ;)

For those who frequent In-N-Out, a secret menu isn’t (or shouldn’t be) a surprise!  But for those who live like mushrooms…. well, you know what they say about mushrooms… 😉 For those finding this out for the first time, sit down, take a deep breath and prepare yourself.  In-N-Out has a secret menu. Read that again. Slowly this … Continue reading

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

You know you’ve matured when you reach for the whole-wheat bread over Wonder Bread white bread.  My sister and I like to tease my mom that we *never* got to eat white bread, UNTIL our little brother (aka the baby!) was of age to start making requests. At which time Captain Crunch, Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Crunch also … Continue reading

Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint Cookies

When I was a little girl, I could spend hours looking thru a cookbook. Or maybe that’s now. 😉  My favorite cookbook to look thru of my moms was her Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book. If your mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, etc., baked, you probably know the one!  The red cookbook covered with a variety … Continue reading

For the love of Brie!!

For the love of Brie!!

Who doesn’t absolutely love Brie cheese!? I personally know a few of you out there. What’s the deal? Is it the creamy, smooth texture? Is the flavor too delicate? Do you not like the mold it’s encased in? Guess what, I don’t either! Cut it off!! I just don’t understand. I don’t understand how anyone can not … Continue reading

Milky Way Cupcakes!

Milky Way Cupcakes!

I can’t explain my thought process sometimes. How they originate. How rampant they run. Just ask those I share my often random thoughts with and they’ll tell you that they have trouble keeping up with how quickly I go from point A to Z in 1.5 seconds! Maybe it was when I realized I only … Continue reading
