Raspberry Turnovers


Puff pastry Turnovers


How do you like to celebrate your birthday?

My idea of the perfect birthday…

kids being helpful

NO bickering

a clean house

dinner made for me

maybe even some afternoon reading time

Today has pretty much been that day for me, although I still have not opened my book yet… but I will. I had every intention of sitting down to read, and then I had a sudden urge for turnovers. ย I needed to have one. ย Raspberry turnovers are probably my all time favorite food, EVER. I could almost smell them baking.


Raspberry Turnovers


So, even though is it HOT

{hello it’s supposed to be 106 by the weekend}

I made turnovers.

It’s my birthday and I’ll bake if I want to:)
