Get to know some of our Newest Employees!
Hey there! My name is Emily and I have been at Barbee Pharmacy for almost 10 months. I moved to Raeford over 2 years ago, but I grew up in the Raleigh area. I have been in the Fayetteville area for almost 5 years because my husband is in the Army and stationed at Ft. Bragg. We have been married for 4 years and have one daughter and two fur babies, Micah and Hannah. I am a graduate of UNC-Charlotte where I majored in Chemistry. I am mostly in the back of the pharmacy filling prescriptions and answering the phones, but recently I have been getting some exposure out on the registers. I am also working on the social media sites and websites for Lilley Pad and Barbee Pharmacy. Well I hope you learned a little about me and I look forward to continuing to get to know all of you as well.

This month our receipe comes from the Co-Owner of Barbee Pharmacy and Gifts, Connie Barbee.

Sausage Cream Cheese Croissants

1 (8oz) package of cream cheese
1 (16oz) package of sausage room temperature
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of onion powder
1 (12 pack) croissants

Cook sausage thoroughly then drain. Mix together warm sausage, cream cheese, garlic powder and onion powder until blended. Partially slit croissants and fill with mixture. Place on cookie sheet and bake
