    Homemade Baked Donuts

    On the weekend we decided to try baked donuts. This was more of an experiment than anything. No high expectations at all. While surfing around the internet, I came across a recipe for baked donuts. First thought was, probably not very good. But after reading further I found out it was a thing. Before we could start we had to see if we could find donut pans locally. Low and behold, we did.

    Make Your Own Granola Bars

    If you have never even considered making your own granola bars, I am going to try and change your mind today. I won’t give you the recipe but a quick search online will give you many options according to your taste. You might say, “But, Gina, I can just go buy some at the grocery store.” And to that I would say, “When you make them yourself you know what’s in them!”

    Random Wednesday

    Well, hello. Welcome, if you are new to these parts, and welcome back if you are a regular.  We have been keeping ourselves busy and trying to stay out of trouble.

    Jim celebrated a birthday on the weekend. That called for chocolate cake of course.

    No sugar? No salt? No problem!

    Every week I have to make bread at home. I make other things too with this same bread dough, rolls, sub buns, hamburger buns and pizza shells. Today its white bread. But today I realized that after I had the dough developed I forgot to add the sugar and salt. Now what to do? Here’s a simple solution.

    Busy Weekend

    I love Saturdays for some reason. I guess its because it feels like it is the beginning of two days of freedom to do what ever we choose. Although this time of year we always end up doing some office work to get ahead of Monday.

    Besides that we managed a few other things, like a much needed power wash of the skidsteer. We didn’t want to leave the mud on it and have that freeze in place.
