The Doughnut Project

My friend and I began our second day in NYC at The Doughnut Project in the West Village. My goal was to sample their breakout doughnut and then a plain glazed (I have a thing about trying the most basic item on the menu when it comes to doughnuts and cupcakes). It seems that The…

Pumpkin Doughnuts

It’s officially pumpkin season in my house!  While I’ve never been a huge pumpkin fan in the past, I’ve come to embrace it and couldn’t wait to make these pumpkin doughnuts for Miles. I’ve never met a kid so into pumpkin.  For me, I think my pumpkin love stops at sweets.  Mainly breakfast sweets.  I’m…

Doughnut Plant

I debated for about two hours trying to decide if I was going to stop in NYC for a doughnut on my way to Boston.  I knew I would have to drive through the city, but was afraid of being stuck in traffic.  As I approached Elizabeth NJ, traffic didn’t seem that bad, so I…

Bing Cherry Doughnuts

My recipe for bing cherry doughnuts was completely inspired by the 7-11 slurpee doughnut that debuted about a month ago.  It looked so pretty and pink and reminded me of the strawberry doughnuts I ate as a child.  I’ve decided to create my own version.  I course debated for a while over where or not…

Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken

Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken was the first stop on an all-day food fest with my friend. I’ve learned finally that if you want to get the largest assortment, you need to go early. We arrived around 11:30am and there was already a small line forming outside. There was also a ten-minute wait on chicken…

Friday Things

My favorite cider mill opened up last week just outside of Detroit and all I’ve been able to think about now is cider doughnuts.  Ok, doughnuts in general.  I love doughnuts and will happily admit being one of those people that’s jumped on a trend.  This week I’m going to share with you an ode…

Glazed and Infused

For the past year, I’ve read nothing but reviews of new donut shops popping up all over Chicago. When I was in town, I tried to visit as many as I could. My first stop was Glazed and Infused. I chose three randomly and of course, my son chose anything that had bacon on it….

Dirt Bombs (doughnut muffins)

When I saw the title of this recipe, I knew it was a lock. It was just a matter of when I was going to make these muffins. Who wouldn’t want a doughnut in muffin form. I thought these would be a nice send off for Miles as we prepared for him to go to…

Maple Bacon Glazed Donuts

My son had a friend sleepover and I took them to see Godzilla.  It was hilarious!  I don’t think it was the films’ intention to be hilarious, but my son, his friend, the audience and I laughed for at least half of the film.  The special effects were great by the way.  While we were…

Old-Fashioned Glazed Yeast Donuts

  This recipe is my ode to Homer Simpson. I recently bought the Lego Simpsons House (I’m a huge Lego and Simpsons fan) and the most adorably small Cuisinart deep fryer. My goal was to eat donuts while putting the house together. Since I’ve been having fun with my mom’s roll dough, I wanted to see…
