Raised Donuts

Raised Donuts

The great fried donut project. I have been wanting to do this for years. Sometime over the weekend while searching for a(other) zucchini recipe, I came across a zucchini cake donut. I was ready to tackle frying at home. I was going to be brave. So I read and researched a bit more on the great subject of donuts. Cake, raised, fried, baked, filled, glazed, sugared, or plain? I knew the answer to which one I would make. Spoiler alert: not the zucchini cake donut (yet, anyhow).  I have been on the quest to find a good honey dipped (or honey glazed) donut for years. The answer was tucked away on page 97 of my grandmother (and her two sisters’) cookbook. I tied my red striped apron on and got to work.

Vegan Cinnamon Date Rolls

Vegan Cinnamon Date Rolls

It has been a challenge to find moments during the full days to share words, pictures and food with you! I am working on finding a better system to do this! I am feeling less foggy, more alive, and there is a pep in my step. It is a wonderful feeling which, frankly, just kicked in this past week and I sure hope it sticks around! Let me share with you some cinnamon rolls. There is no added sugar in the filling for these gems! What? I know, NQGBebe was a bit skeptical, too! Let’s go!

Cranberry Almond Ginger Muffins

Cranberry Almond Ginger Muffins

Cranberry Almond Ginger Muffins
This muffin started in another form – a coffee cake bread to be exact. We would make this bread every year at the holidays to gift away or enjoy it ourselves. Years later, I still find myself longing for this tender bread studded with cranberries and topped with an almond glaze.

Baking Bootcamp Challenge: Gruyere & Green Olive Rolls

Baking Bootcamp Challenge: Gruyere & Green Olive Rolls

 

Gruyere & Olive Stuffed Rolls The third baking bootcamp challenge by Joy the Baker & King Arthur Flour was to bake up a few gruyere and green olive stuffed rolls. I am not going to drag this out – I was intimidated. So, so scared to work with yeast which is super sensitive to the environment, time and temperature. Add in a slightly cranky (yet still adorable) baby and we just have ourselves a full day of entertainment!
