They have so much flavor and a great texture that works so well in combo with the slaw, Continue Reading…

Mushroom Pâté All Day

August 31, 2018

Never have I ever… had pâté. I think that is mostly because usually you only hear of Liver Pâté and well, that just sounds downright disgusting. However, the other weekend my husband, Luna and I were down staying at my in-laws vacation home in Sisters, OR and Continue Reading…

Easy Chickpea Curry

April 4, 2018

What is up with this weather?! One day it will be 60 and sunny and the next its 48 and raining! Weather has a way of dictating the type of food I eat. When its cold I want some something that will warm me up, more comforting. While its the opposite when its hot out. With this typical Oregon weather Continue Reading…

The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

January 21, 2017

These are literally the BEST chocolate chip cookies! This is the first recipe I have ever made that didn’t turn out flat, pathetic, and unappetizing. Instead, these are SO thick, a little crunchy when they first come out of the oven and if you have enough self control to not eat the whole batch in one night Continue Reading…

Over the weekend I got a very pregnant craving for donuts. So I whipped up these with a few of my own touches 🙂 They are SO delicious! Probably why there are only 3 (soon to only be 2) left out of the full dozen batch…oops.

Here is the recipe along with the few changes I made to make the recipe my own.

  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the topping I went with a chocolate cinnamon combination. I LOVE chocolate and cinnamon together, especially this time of year.

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • whatever topping you like: sprinkles, nuts, ect.

Basically you just want to mix all the dry ingredients together first. I usually sift them together to get a little fluffier doughnut, and then add all the wet ingredients in and mix everything together. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes in a doughnut pan like this one I got from Target. The dough will be thick so I use two spoons to kind of spread it around each doughnut slot in the pan.

For the topping you just want to pour the chocolate chips, milk and cinnamon in a small pot and heat it up slowly over the stove until smooth and not too thick. You can add a little more milk if you think the mixture is not thin enough. Once the doughnuts have cooled enough to handle turn them upside down into the chocolate mixture and just spin them around a few times to ensure they are covered. Sprinkle with whatever topping you like and enjoy!
