Raised Mini Donuts

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Mini Donuts! With all the options for fancy, over-the-top donuts, I often forget the simple pleasure of a tiny donut coated in sugar. In the past these small circles were enjoyed at some kind of amusement park or fair; a bag purchased on the way out after a long day of walking for miles and spending way too much money on food already. Now I can make them…

blood orange donuts

Sunday, January 20, 2019

Yossy Arefi’s (from Apt 2B Baking Co.) new cookbook is out today, and I’d just like to begin by saying it’s so gorgeous. I’ve been a fan of Yossy’s work for quite some time and have been eagerly awaiting this release. The book focuses on all things fruit, and is filled with stunning photographs, unique flavor combinations, and recipes that work.  ‘The recipes in this book range from…

(baked) pumpkin donuts

baked pumpkin donuts

I normally prefer fried donuts if have a choice, but they can be a lot of work and the kitchen aftermath is not always worth the effort. I make these baked pumpkin donuts every fall and never hear any complaints – they are muffin-y in taste, but delicious none-the-less. This recipe was actually originally for muffins, but I prefer them in donut shape – they bake up quite…

Pumpkin pastry cream is quite tasty, and I honestly can’t stop making it. It’s smooth and rich like any good pastry cream should be, with just enough pumpkin flavor. This recipe is adapted from the pastry cream in my book; I start things…

brioche doughnuts with chocolate-bourbon glaze

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

On December 10, 2007, I was 9 months pregnant with my first child, my daughter Winter. That particular day in December was also her due date, and my 10-year ‘dating’ anniversary with Adam. Ten years ago that very night after walking around for hours talking about how we wanted to be more than just friends, we found ourselves in front of the Winona Middle School and kissed for…

raspberry doughnuts with chocolate glaze

Friday, August 31, 2012

The summer we first moved into our house, my sister and her husband gave us two raspberry bushes. We had no idea about taking care of raspberries, but we eagerly grabbed the plants and found a little home for them along our fence, dreaming of jam, and pie, and afternoon snacks. Now, six years later they are out of control; bushes racing up and down that fence as…
