A few weeks ago, we hosted a small dinner party for six and served these pies as the main protein.  Instead of serving a burger on a plain bun, try puff pastry!

Once you make your hamburger, I made mine with jalepenos and cheddar,  all you have to do is place the cooked burger in a square of puff pastry and fold in each corner of the dough  to meet in the middle. I didn’t make the dough from scratch and instead used Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets.   Then, I just brushed the tops with a little egg white for sheen and baked them in the oven at 400°F for 25 minutes until golden brown.

I served them along with mashed sweet potatoes and oven roasted broccoli and it turned out to be a hit!  Let me know if you give it a try!


For most, lighting in a room tends to be somewhat of an afterthought.  But I’ve mentioned before, that it can make such a big difference in how we perceive a space and how we feel in that space.   In addition to choosing the right light fixture to add style and substance to a room,  choosing the right bulb can be just as important.    Take a look at the difference in my living room using GE reveal® bulbs:

Doesn’t the space look fresh and brighter?  Gone is the yellow glow. Changing an ordinary bulb to a GE reveal® bulb can make a difference in any room. GE reveal® bulbs make colors pop and wood grain more inviting. You can makeover a room with just a switch of the bulb!
