Apple cider donuts, round 3

Apple cider donuts, round 3

I was determined to find the perfect substitute in looks and taste. Third time’s a charm! I found this recipe on Free Eats and they looked delish. These are officially my new favorite donut recipe. To make these a little healthier, I baked them instead of frying. Makes 4 dozen mini donuts. 2 cups All-Purpose … Continue reading

High School Reunion!

High School Reunion!

My husband and I went to the same high school. He was only a grade above me, so we have a lot of mutual friends. Years ago we agreed when reunion time came around there was no need or desire to go to both. He never received any info for a reunion last year, which … Continue reading

Crosswalks

Crosswalks

I have a decent commute and no parking at work, so I take the bus to work. This involves driving about a mile away to park at the shopping center. I have to cross the street to get on the bus. It’s a decent intersection so there are crosswalks and cross signals. When I’m driving … Continue reading

Serves 4 -4 chicken breasts -3 tablespoons ricotta cheese -1/4 red … Continue reading

Chinese Food part 1

Chinese Food part 1

We love Chinese food and used to eat it all the time. Now, the only option we really have is P.F. Changs. Don’t get me wrong, their food is delicious and we have never had any gluten issues there. They always go above and beyond. However, the meals add up. That means if I want … Continue reading
