Mini Chocolate Doughnut Muffins

Mini Chocolate Doughnut Muffins for a snow day, that’s what these were. The kids went back to school on January 2nd, and by the 3rd they already had a day off, thanks to an insane amount of snow. We seized the moment, slept in, and then it was time for breakfast. I decided to skip the glaze so these not-unhealthy treats wouldn’t venture into dessert territory.

Fall is upon us. . .at least in the mornings.

It’s been super cold here in the morning, so it’s jackets and maybe even a scarf when we leave the house, and then the heat kicks in and by afternoon everyone who isn’t in shorts feels like an idiot. So Fall is whispering at us, maybe, and when the kids went gaga over the apple cider donuts at Stew Leonard’s, I decided it was time to for the first treat of the season.

We settled for mini donuts, with the requirement that they have some sort of icing or glaze. Deal. Into a bowl went the […]

A donut pan is one of those things I’ve been dismissing. You can’t own every specialty pan there is, not in a kitchen like mine, which is already bursting at the seams. There’s no room at the inn.  Plus we already have that cute mini donut maker that Jenny gave us, so why would I […]

jump to recipe Remind me not to listen to Presidential debates while I’m baking. It’s so depressing. It feels like this great big game with so little meaning. And yet I’m still watching. I listened to it on the radio while I was baking, I switched to my iPhone when I had to walk around […]

The kids have been begging for mini donuts and yesterday was our first Saturday at home in weeks, so I finally took out the mini donut maker Jenny gave us, and got to work. Lucky for me on a sleepy Saturday morning, I had a helper. Juliet was in charge of the flour (whole wheat […]

Last week, Jenny sent us a box of presents from ThinkGeek. She said there was one gift for each of us and we had to figure out whose was whose. She did say that it wouldn’t be difficult, and she was right. Juliet: Ice Princess Ice Cube Straws Nathaniel: Finger Sporks Dave: Sizzling Bacon Candle […]
