Project: Tidy it Thursday: How to Organize Kids Toys! Had a lot of fun with this one and we’re really happy how it turned out. Thanks to my wonderful best friend Jackie for this vision!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 4- really because it took some time sorting through, weeding out, rearranging!
• Time: many days worth!
• Would I do it again? yes! I loved how this turned out and the girls even keep it together! With the labeled bins it’s easier at pick up time to make sure things get to their original homes.
• What I would do differently: nothing 😉 I really like this one.
• Items used: Ikea Expedit Shelving unit, Ikea Branas baskets, Ikea plants and pots, our own books and toys, Ikea bird picture and frame, Target Hydrangeas, and great organizing labels from: http://betterhomesandgardens.com , organizing idea from:  merrimentstyle.com

day 46: baked apples and brie in a puff pastry, oh my!

Standard

MY TAKE:

• Project: day 46: baked apples and brie in a puff pastry, oh my!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 3
• Would I do it again? yes! It was pretty simple, savory with a touch of sweet and a great way to finish off a wonderful meal done by my wonderful friend Jackie!
• What I would do differently: add a touch more cinnamon and sugar to each pastry, but it’s pretty important to keep the sweet and savory balance though!
• Items used: see recipe below from http://bloghungry.typepad.com/blog/2010/04/brie-and-apple-tarts.html

Individual Brie and Apple Tarts

1 box (2 sheets) of puff pastry, thawed
1 green apple
1 Tbsp brown sugar, divided

1 Tbsp butter, divided
1/4 tsp cinnamon, divided
1 medium wedge of brie
1 egg
flour (for rolling)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Unfold 1 sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured board and roll it slightly with a floured rolling pin until it’s a 10 by 10-inch square. Cut the sheet into quarters with a sharp knife. Place a good-sized slice of brie and 3 or 4 this slices of apple the middle of each of the 4 squares. Sprinkle apples with cinnamon and brown sugar and top with a pat of butter. Brush the border of each pastry with egg wash and fold 2 opposite corners to the center, brushing and overlapping the corners of each pastry so they firmly stick together. Brush the top of the pastries with egg wash. Place the pastries on the prepared sheet pan. Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry.

Bake the pastries for about 20 minutes, rotating the pan once during baking, until puffed and brown. Serve warm.

until ipinterest tomorrow!
