As I am typing this post, we are getting ready for a road trip to Kansas, helping my brother-in-law move. I just love a good road trip and can’t wait see what this weekend has in store for us, even though there’s a little bit of work involved, ha.

Since our MN summer has been lacking the hot temperatures that are normal for this time of year, I am beyond elated to be heading somewhere hot and humid. While temperatures in the high 70’s make for a comfortable summer for most people, the summer lover in me cannot wait to finally break a sweat.

One good thing about the “low” temps is that I haven’t had a reason not to turn on my oven. I’ve been happily baking away lately. Eating sweet treats and going for a run in gorgeous weather…. does it get much better than this?

Actually, yes. Eating doughnuts without having to work out would be even more amazing, but we’re talking about reality here. There’s no greater motivator than finishing my run when these fluffy doughnuts of wonderfulness are awaiting me. It’s the biggest reason why I work out.

Kathi loves food just too much, especially doughnuts. Best Ever Glazed Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Doughnuts to be exact! [Read more…]

Wednesdays call for doughnuts, don’t you think? Actually, I could go for a doughnut any day of the week at any time. No reason needed :).

They’re are my number one weakness when it comes to baked goods. When I sat down the other day and realized that I hadn’t shared a recipe for glazed doughnuts yet, I almost couldn’t believe it. My favorite doughnut needed to make an appearance ASAP.

And I didn’t even think twice before running to the kitchen and get baking.

Nothing compares to biting into this fluffy deliciousness. No matter how many doughnuts I devour, it never gets old. Every single one tastes as good as the first one I ever put my lips to. Can you tell I’m smitten? [Read more…]

Easy French Crullers

Homemade French Crullers are a cinch to prepare. These are one of the lightest and airiest crullers you will ever taste. And drenched in a sweet glaze, of course!

Doughnuts. One of my favorite things to make and eat. No matter what shape or size, whether they are fried or baked, dusted with powdered sugar, dunked in a glaze or rolled in cinnamon sugar, I love them all. There is no way I could possibly name my favorite of all time – it’s pretty much always my latest version. They are just too good.

Needless to say, my latest obsession are these crullers.

Before I started to research how to make these, I thought that making crullers involved a lot of work and maybe even a yeast dough. I was so excited when I found out that making crullers is very similar to the process of making churros. And since I have had some experience in that department, I couldn’t wait to get to work on these. [Read more…]

Black and White Bakery-Style Doughnuts

Can you handle another sprinkle-filled post? I really wasn’t planning on topping these doughnuts with colorful sprinkles, but once I dipped them in a luscious glaze, they practically begged for some. And I just wasn’t tough enough to say no. Now that I am looking at these doughnuts, I am more than glad I grabbed a handful of rainbows. Never say no to sprinkles – lesson learned.

Doughnuts are one of my favorite breakfast items, snacks, and desserts. I love their versatility. I guess you could say I am somewhat obsessed. Always have been. It’s the one thing I could never say no to – my kryptonite, if you will.

Since I am such a doughnut fan, I was extremely hesitant to trying a baked version. I thought it sounded well in theory, but didn’t think they would satisfy as much as the “real” thing. Boy, am I ever glad to tell you how wrong I was. I am positive I’ve never been more surprised or more elated when my misconceived notions were shattered in our small MN kitchen. If you haven’t already, you have got to try these! [Read more…]

Homemade Beignets

On my way to work the other day, I saw a sign advertising a visit to New Orleans during Mardi Gras. It captured my attention instantly because I’ve always wanted to go. Yeah, I guess I’m a marketer’s dream. But apart from the well-designed billboard, my longing to visit New Orleans started to well up yet again. It steadily holds #1 on my list of places to go.

It all started two years ago when my husband and I planned a trip to Louisiana. I had done my research and had completely fallen in love as I planned our agenda of things to do and places to eat. Days before our scheduled departure, my husband fell ill and we sadly had to cancel our much anticipated trip to the south.

As I was thinking about that trip once again, I decided that I had waited long enough for fresh beignets (one of the things I was dying to try). It was time I made my own homemade version.

Oh, yes. Southern food has officially made it’s way into our little MN kitchen and there’s nothing I’m more thrilled about!

I have four words for you: Pillowy, Fluffy, Airy, Perfection. [Read more…]
