When working on something spectacular for later snacking, one needs a simple meal. This is the spectacular snackage mentioned in the Super Simple Salmon recipe. I have been itching to do homemade doughnuts for a while now. The recipe here is a little labour intensive, but entirely worth it. And having a bread machine will take some of the workload off you.
I will start by saying that we searched high and low for a recipe that would provide the perfect white doughnut. We combed through the reviews to see if there were pitfalls not mentioned in the recipe, and what the outcome would be. The recipe we found here on Dine & Dish met the criteria I had for the perfect doughnut.
Cinnamon Sugar Coating
SPRINKLES! I FORGOT SPRINKLES! Part of this whole thing was that I was craving a white glazed doughnut with rainbow sprinkles. Well that and … does anyone remember the little mini doughnut factory kiosks in the mall? YEAH, I wanted some of those too. Well. I totally forgot to put sprinkles on the doughnuts! Oh well. I am sure I can find another occasion to make these. What? Today is a day of the week ending in “Y” PERFECT! I’ll make doughnuts!
These were delicious. The dough wasn’t overly sweet, and not at all cakey, very light, scrumptious with the toppings. That was exactly what I was going for. The glaze was delicious, bringing to mind Krispy Kreme doughnuts. We made 28 whole doughnuts in total. You will have more if you make doughnut holes too. But there were only four of us for the little gathering on Sunday nights. There were three doughnuts left. It was because I was using them for photography. WE ATE 25 DOUGHNUTS!!! My husband pulled the puppy eyes and got the last three for breakfast.

Such Spicy Garlic
The Super Garlicky Thai Chicken was tangy and spicy with all the garlic you could ever want to consume. I served it with leftover potatoes and loads of green veggies, but over rice would be superb.View Details

With Roasted Potatoes
Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal. These dishes were prepared in the same way every time and passed down from mother to daughter for at least four generations. Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
